World of Padman is an open source first person shooter.
Originally Quake III Arena mod named PadMod, World of Padman became a standalone game when the source code for Arena was released in 2007. It is primarily an online multiplayer game, however offline play with bots is also available. In comparison with other shooters it features not only deathmatch and capture the flag (called "capture the lolly" here) modes, but also an additional mode of play: Spray Your Color, where you score points for spraying the logo of your team in a special room. To spray the logo you have to frag an opponent first and collect special cartridge that he holds.
In contrast with majority of first person shooters game is rather colourful and features many comical elements like kitchen or bathroom turned into maps or a hand puppet (named Punchy) serving as close combat weapon. Ingame characters are based on PlayStation Games magazine's comic strip "Padman".
Chroelle : I remember being some what surprised the first time I played it and got fragged instantaniously. I think you are right. It was propably the colors that lulled me into a false sense of cozyness.
Pater Alf : Did anyone else experience the strange effect that because of the colourful environment and the cartoony characters you automatically think that the players are more friendly?
In other FPSs I always feel bad as a noob, because I don't know the basics of the game, normally get shot after five seconds and am nothing but a burden for my team. But here I felt completely welcome. Strange!
Pater Alf : I just wanted to try this game for some minutes yesterday night and ended up playing "Capture the Lolly" for more than two hours. I really like this game. The only problem I had was that it was sometimes hard to tell from which team a certain player was (e.g. a blue monster with no clothing except a red trouser).
Drasir-Vel : Well, arguably this is a commercial quality game. It has great multiplayer gameplay, also the bots are convincing, and some colourful and varied levels.
Chroelle : I am not the best FPS-player on the internet - heck I am not even sure I am in the top 100.000.000. But still this game has a lot of appeal. Like Quake it has lots of different weapons, powerups, pickups you dont know what does and you wil propably never need - but they are shiny.
Lots of different levels, great bot-AI so playing multiplayer with bots is very pleasing, and not the fragfest it sometimes turns out to be in other games. I like this - I like it alot!
