The game has several things going for it, even if the graphics look amateurish and you control a silver ball instead of a normal spaceship. The levels are diverse and the physics reasonably realistic. Unfortunately Orb Wars just doesn't offer the same addictiveness as AUTS or V-Wings, mostly because the levels and weapons are not as diverse as those two classics. As it stands, Orb Wars is merely a "good" caveflyer and not an "excellent" one. Try the shareware version before you decide whether or not to register it.
Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

Not to be confused with Simutronic's multiplayer game of the same name, Orb Wars is a fun two-player shareware "caveflyer" game with a familiar concept: two players pilot their spacecrafts and try to destroy each other. The game also includes levels where the objective is not to kill, but to finish the flying route as quickly as possible..min
