OpenSpades, A Free FPS Clone Of Ace Of Spades

By - | Views: 16,547

The original Ace of Spades FPS game can now be played cross-platform and has some shiny new graphics.

Before Jagex ruined Ace of Spades and released it on Steam, Ace of Spades was a free first-person shooter that had a destructible environment and allowed players to build on the battlefield. This original version of Ace of Spades was kept alive by community members on a website called Build and Shoot and now Linux users can play too via OpenSpades.

OpenSpades is compatible with the original Ace of Spades servers and its graphics and sound effects are a huge step up. Even if you are not into the FPS genre (like myself) OpenSpades can be a lot fun.

Offcial About

Got her compiled and running...its pretty nice. Installation instructions were easy to follow in the readme. It's been a while since i have compiled anything..lol. Great fun though!


oh if you get a libopenal error after the setup screen of the game... install libopenal-dev (on Linux Mint / Ubuntu, anyway)
