RUNNING WITH RIFLES [Steam, Official Site] is an old favourite of mine, as it's an easy to pick up and play top-down shooter. It has just been updated with a new game mode, where everyone only gets one life.

It sounds amusing and I can't wait to try it out! You can find the news post with more information here.

If you have never played it before, I highly recommend it as we've had a real blast playing it in the past. You can see some gameplay I recorded a while ago below:

About the game
RUNNING WITH RIFLES is a top-down tactical shooter with open-world RPG elements.

In RWR, you join the ranks of an army as a common soldier, just like the thousands around you.

The open world approach lets you define your own path and story in the campaign. Push back the enemy with your comrades or go deep behind enemy lines to sabotage their efforts and loot valuable items.

As you gain experience, you are promoted with higher command over soldiers and equipment. Call in artillery fire missions or paratrooper reinforcements when the situation gets tight! Use your squad to man armed boats, tanks and APC's, or, become the expert lone wolf you always aspired to be - it's up to you! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

If you wonder what actually the new game mode is, it is a permadeath mode (source: http://steamcommunity.com/gid/103582791435281991/announcements/detail/359554511054716826)

Anyone familiar with CannonFodder (old Amiga game). Is this game like this and if so how close to cannonfodder?
there are a handful of games from my childhood that were 2nd to none (forget graphics, gameplay...) this was one of them

It's not really like it, you only control a single person at a time.
