    I am looking for one of two things.
    Either a Mac port of the Windows/DOS game called "Liero", or more likely, a port of the same game under the title "NiL" for Linux.

    That, or someone that wants to port the Linux game over to OSX :D

    The game, for those that might now know it by name, is similar to worms, except it's real time, and can be battled out between 2 people using one computer. The game takes the form of two worms (or slugs) that have a huge array of insanely fun weapons, and are allowed to duke it out on a 2D playing field with tunnels in dirt. Though tunnels quickly becomes massive caverns as all the dirt is blown away by the fight :D

    I've spent hours searching for a Mac port, but haven't come up with one, at least not one named "Liero" or "NiL". But I hope someone may be able to match what I'm talking about, to a Mac game by another name.

    If anyone would like to port this low pixel highly addictive game to OSX, please do so! One of the guys that did a Linux clone said he could port his code real easy if only he had a Mac to use. Maybe one of the mac users in the community could port it?

    Thanks for any input,
    Tyler

    I remember Liero! That game was awesome, until its stopped working with XP. An OS X port would be great!

    Good to see someone out there remembers!
    No comments on being able to port it though, aye?
    Shucks...

    Anyone else?
