Players can choose from 2 unique races, aliens and humans. Players on both teams are able to build working structures in-game like an RTS. These structures provide many functions, the most important being spawning. The designated builders must ensure there are spawn structures or other players will not be able to rejoin the game after death. Other structures provide automated base defense (to some degree), healing functions and much more. Player advancement is different depending on which team you are on. As a human, players are rewarded with credits for each alien kill. These credits may be used to purchase new weapons and upgrades from the "Armoury". The alien team advances quite differently. Upon killing a human foe, the alien is able to evolve into a new class. The more kills gained the more powerful the classes available. The overall objective behind Tremulous is to eliminate the opposing team. This is achieved by not only killing the opposing players but also removing their ability to respawn by destroying their spawn structures.

This page will be revised as new Games are Evaluated and Added. Direct any game related issues to the game developer.

Read the following completely before sending any emails:

Game Submissions - Any game submissions must meet the following minimum requirements: The Game must be 100% free and complete, not Demos, Shareware, or Mods. Games that include content of commercial games in the download legally require owning a copy of the commercial game and will not be listed here. All in game content, documentation and websites must be in English. They must include an installer and uninstaller. I realize it is possible to easily make installers for games but this is not my job, contact the developer and have them make one. Only developer hosted and created installers are acceptable. This page has nothing to do with games that run in other operating systems, especially DOS. They must include no Adware, Spyware or Copy Protection. In game advertisements for other software including their own is not acceptable. Finally no monetary amount should be asked for in anyway, including updated or expanded features, expansion packs or monthly fees, either in game or from the home page. Webpage based advertisements are acceptable just not in the game. Asking a fee to ship the game on CD or DVD is acceptable so long as a full 100% Free non-limited download is available. Even if a game meets all these basic requirements it does not mean it will automatically be listed here. This is not intended to be an all inclusive Guide but a reference to target the better Freeware titles. All games listed here are personally tested and evaluated to a higher personal standard beyond these requirements.

MMORPG - Many if not most "free" MMORPGs actually have hidden pay features, such as stores for in game items that are bought with real currency. I consider this deceptive since it offers an unfair advantage to those who pay. If you think your "free" MMORPG does not have any pay features, check again carefully. These games will never be listed here so please do not submit them.

Rejected Games - These games were rejected for various reasons, do not submit these.

Removal - Games will be removed from this page if newer versions stop being Freeware or meeting the guidelines set out by this page.

Emailing - Read the above completely and check the rejected games list: OptimizeXP@comcast.net
