Wargus - Open-Source Warcraft II On Linux
An update has been released to Wargus, an open-source version of the Warcraft II game that was originally released back in the 90's.
Pali Rohár has taken over the Wargus project as the open-source version of Blizzard's Warcraft II. It works under Linux too. However, you do need a copy of the game's CD for Wargus to work as it relies upon the original game assets. Besides running natively on Windows and Linux, there's been Wargus ports to the Nokia N900 (Maemo), PocketPC, GP2X, Windows Mobile Phone, and Android, among other platforms.
Below is the email that Pali sent into Phoronix about the new open-source update.
