Author's Description: Burn 2 is packed with turret strafing, laser blasting, and city-bombing fast-paced arcade style gameplay.
Burn 2 is a team deathmatch space shooter featuring Gravitar-style gameplay, deformable terrain, colored lighting, randomly generated planets/buildings/landscapes/skies, stereo sound, and a varied techno MIDI soundtrack. Matches can be as many as five on five, with up to 5 human players (same computer) and any number of AI players to fill in the gaps. Supports joystick, gamepad, and keyboard play.
Be sure to experiment with various team sizes, and skim the readme for help on which key in your chosen control operates the bombs.
