I loved this game too, Tim. One of the best shareware games ever released at the time - far better than many commercial games available for the ST. I'm surprised there haven't been any commercial takeoffs on this title in the past 20 or so years.

This was the FIRST real-time multi player game I ever played. Before DOOM, before Falcon, there was Arena Earth. It used the 'cell' based pseudo 3D system familiar from games like Dungeon Master, Viper, etc. Basically, you and a buddy on the other end of a modem ran around a jungle setting traps and duking it out.
It was hilariously fun. Great game!

Glad to hear people enjoyed my game! I had lost the source code many years ago, but found the game online recently again. Brings back lots of memories!
