Play Tron Online and Offline

Sometimes it is not just play. You need to think about strategy, timing and other things in order to win. Like all games I blog about, here is another one that is bound to get you thinking. Based on the light cycle sequences from the film Tron, the aim of the game is to be the last player riding. So avoid running into walls, your own tail and that of your opponents. You can play the online (flash) version here or download the offline versions mentioned below.

Although the online version of the game is easy to finish, it is good fun for just 10 minutes. What if you would like to get more of that drawing lines to beat the enemy action? Well, that is where the offline versions step in.

Offline versions: On top of providing you with more levels to complete, the graphics are a million times better! Download Armagetron Advanced (screenshot on the top left) or GLTron for free. Both games are open source and available on multiple platforms (PC, Mac, Linux) but only Armagetron Advanced has Internet play (MMOG) as well.

For those who haven't seen the film yet, watch it! Here is an excerpt from the Wikipedia page:
"Being one of the first films from a major studio to use computer graphics extensively, Tron has a distinctive visual style. Although the film was initially unsuccessful, it has remained a cult favorite mainly due to its innovative use of computer graphics and its computer and video-game plot line. Tron's light-cycle race is one of the movie's best-remembered action sequences."
