    I am close to finishing my first Unity game. The first game I have created since writing Z80 machine code games when I was 13.

    I started with the Smartfox FPS example and built my game around this. Not much of the original example is left.

    NOTE: You will need to install Smartfox server to run game. This is quite small and easy to do.

    I also have a server hosted at IP: 50.16.98.82, on the default port 9933. To play, you will need to download game using link below and enter these values on the connection screen.


    The twist in my FPS is powerups. I love BZFlag and the powerup idea was borrowed from it. Some examples of the powerups are:

    Wings: Gives player ability for short flights
    Shotgun: Shoots multiple projectiles
    Speedy: Run very fast

    There are 11 different powerups in total.

    I would love to get some feedback. I have played Zone with a few Counter Strike friends and we enjoyed it almost as much as CSS. But friends can be generous. So I would appreciate some unbiased feedback.

    Controls are standard FPS:

    Mouse - Look
    W - Forward
    S - Back
    A - Strafe left
    D - Strafe Right
    Ctrl - Crouch
    Shift - Walk
    R - Reload
    Space - Jump (or fly with wings)
    Q - Drop powerup
    Mouse Scroll - Zoom

    There are no Bots. You can run around by yourself, but you will need a friend to play a game.

    The game can be downloaded from the following sites:

    Thanks for feedback logotom. I have a readme in the zip download that explains how to setup the smartfox server.

    I have also created a hosted server on Amazon Web Services.

    The IP is: 50.16.98.82
    Port (default): 9933

    The server is hosted in east coast US. I have found a few issues testing from Australia due to latency. But it is working. A couple times I got stuck connecting or starting a game. Trying again, allowed me to keep going.

    It might be better for US based people. I'll work on issues and build resiliency in for poor latency.
