 Review of Tribal Trouble

If you like real time strategy games like Warcraft III then Tribal Trouble is your kind of game. They have it available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. One interesting thing about it is that it was developed in Java using the Lightweight Java Game Library. Macologist provides us with a nice review including some screenshots and if you want to give it a try there is a playable demo. When you download the Linux version it comes as a shell script that you run to install the game.

"Tribal Trouble, the first offering from Oddlabs, in many ways is your typical real-time strategy (RTS) game. You gather various resources including wood, rock, iron and so on in order to erect buildings, train units, and arm them with various weapons. In addition to the expected armaments there is also a colorful tropical chicken that's used for making poison weapons. Once youíve built up your army its time to set off to attack your enemies. Donít worry though; if the siege runs long, the resources replenish themselves after a while, so there's still hope if you run out. "
