Orbus is a team-based, multiplayer strategy game. Collect orbs and defend your home base to reach the score limit before the other team.


Features

  • Up to 16 players and 4 teams!
  • 6 different weapon types that open up many different playable strategies!
  • Computer-controlled AI that can be added to any game, online or off!
  • Direct-connect to a server IP or scan for games on your network!

Gameplay

  • Players begin in opposite corners of the map, near their home base.
  • Collecting white orbs and bringing them back to home base increases your team's scoring rate. The more orbs you have, the faster you gain points.
  • Collecting dark "energy" orbs increases your energy levels. When energy is low, your speed is reduced. When energy is depleted, you warp back to home base.
  • Collecting power-ups around the map will give you a competitive advantage.
  • Left mouse button will fire an energy-draining projectile. Right mouse will shoot an energy orb, which can be absorbed by teammates.
  • Attack home bases by draining their energy: when their health is low, they generate points at a greatly reduced rate. But watch out, because other teams are sure to do the same to you!
