3omns - simple tile-based bomb-dropping deathmatch game
3omns is an old-school arcade-style tile-based bomb-dropping deathmatch game. The name is a bastardization of the word Bombs (and you should pronounce it however you want).
The red player uses the arrow keys to move and R-Ctrl to drop bombs. The blue player uses WASD to move and L-Ctrl to drop bombs. Damage players (and destroy crates) by catching them in a bomb blast or punching them by walking into them. You can disarm opponent bombs by walking over them. A few crates contain powerups that briefly make you invulnerable.
3omns supports play over a LAN using the --serve or --connect options (see Network Play Options below).
Normally, 3omns looks for game logic Lua code in

Network Play Options
Run as a client and connect to the hosting
Port to use when serving or connecting. Unless specified, 3omns uses port 30325 (which looks kind of like 3OMNS if you tilt your head).
Run as a host and listen on the given
address. If not specified,
defaults to the wildcard address.
Some useful diagnostic information is printed as 3omns runs, and if a Lua error is encountered, you are dropped into a Lua debug session. You can also enter a Lua debug session at any time by pressing the
(grave accent/tilde) key.
Print all network communication as it happens.
Print the default value of
RES, the path where 3omns normally looks for its resources, and exit. This just provides an unambiguous way to find the path without parsing the help text.
Print a brief command line help listing and exit.
Print a terse command line usage summary and exit.
Print 3omns version and exit.
3omns is still in alpha. These are some of the major deficiencies in the current version:
Limited to 2 human players and 2 bots
Bot AI isnt very good
In LAN play, all connected computers can control both human players
Net play is entirely unreliable outside of the LAN
Sometimes in LAN play clients wont see bomb explosions
