After two years of development, a beta version of Steel Storm has hit the tubes, offering a taste of this free (and open source!) top-down shooter. It's a multiplayer game with both deathmatch and co-op modes, so might be worth a gander:
Steel Storm is an old school top down arcade shooter with score oriented competitive gameplay, and is designed for people who like fast paced action and have limited amounts of time to play computer games.

The events take place in an alternative universe where you control an advanced hovertank, packed with the most advanced and sophisticated weapons. Your task is simple, but, nevertheless, is not trivial. In the fight with presumed extraterrestrial invaders, you must prevail!
You can download it now for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Check out the below video for a look at the action, and our game page has some more information and features.

Great to see something like being open source.

The street combat at the start was a little brain numbing, especially after he seamed to lick catching opposing enemy rocks like they were candy. Later into the movie though it got pretty exciting, near the end, full 360deg combat really made this type of combat system shine.

bit of a shame cause it's taken them 2 years to release a beta, but I reckon I'll get bored within 5 minutes of playing it.
