|Alien Arena 2007|
Do you like fast paced deathmatch? How about
rich, colorful, arcadelike atmospheres? How about...retro Sci Fi?
Then you're going to love what Alien Arena 2007 has in store for you!
This game combines some of the very best aspects of such games as Quake
III and Unreal Tournament and wraps them up with a retro alien theme,
while adding tons of original ideas to make the game quite unique.
AA2K7 is the latest version of a freeware online deathmatch game that was first introduced to the public in October, 2004. Since that initial release, nearly every aspect of the game has been revamped, in fact, all of the content and code from the November 2005 release of Alien Arena 2006 has been redone as well. It's like an entirely new game, and it may shock people just how much it has improved in less than a year's time. With over 30 levels, seven modes of play, loads of mutators, built-in bots, 11 player characters, 9 weapons(with alt-fire modes), the game has an endless supply of replayability. With so many new features, AA2K7 is nearly an entirely new game when held in comparison to it's predecessor. With the trials and tribulations of software development, endless hours of playing, gathering feedback, COR Entertainment has been able to not only fine tune and perfect it's flagship game, but add completely new dimensions to it.
Using the CRX engine, which is based on the Id GPL source code, AA2K7 now includes modern effects such as real time vertex lighting and shadows, lensflares, light blooms, reflective water, textured particles, stainmaps, 32 bit color, shaders, fog, and much more. Built into the game is a easy to use server browser which allows the user to query information about each server. CRX features rewards systems, as well as colored player names, winner podiums, and weapons stats. The best thing about the CRX engine however, is it's netcode and speed. Even on a modest system, you will get excellent framerates, and movement is still extremely smooth and fast, even on high ping servers.
Bot AI has been improved with each release, and for AA2K7, a number of improvements and enhancements have been made. These bots are among the most human acting bots in any game, and also some of the toughest if you choose them to be. They are fully configurable using an external editor, and skill levels can be set in game.
Alien Arena is a fast paced, furious frag fest
with arenas ranging from the small, to the massive. With a large
built-in player base, it's never hard to find a good match going on, at
any hour of the day. The community is friendly, as well as
prolific. Dozens of maps, models, and various accessories have
been created by community members to add on to the game experience.
Alien Arena features team based gameplay as well, such as Team Core Assualtl, a mode in which players must work together to disable their enemy team's central metal spider. Don't forget about the Team Deathmatch, Cattle Prod, Capture the Flag, Deathball, and All Out Assault mode(in which players can enter vehicles) either. For the 1v1 players, Alien Arena now features a duel mode!

SINGLE PLAYER CODERED GAMES
For those who like the single player experience, COR offers two single player games, CodeRED: Battle For Earth and CodeRED: The Martian Chronicles. *Note - these games are very old, and use a much older version of the CRX engine, and are no longer in development.
In BFE, you play a URF soldier, Commander Joseph Hicks, who has learned that his commanding officer, General Braddock, has betrayed the URF and is working with alien invaders to take over planet Earth. Entering a devasted post-apocolyptic world, you do your best to fend of the invasion of the maniacle Martians and their contraptions of death. In time, you come to realize that the URF has secrets of it's own, and that you are all alone...
The Martian Chronicles picks up some years later. Now a decorated officer for your efforts on Earth, you have been sent to Mars to investigate the disappearance of combat troops. It appears a new leader has assumed control, codenamed "Big Brain", and is massing a new army. Your mission is to find him, and put a stop to his plans. Along the way, you'll see incredible Martian facilities and landscapes, and horrors that you could have never imagined.
