Follow Turner, a rebel bunny rabbit with impressive combat skills in his quest to find those responsible for slaughtering his village. Uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving the corrupt leaders of the rabbit republic and the wolves of the nearby lands.
Streamlined Combat: Gone are the days of combo memorization and button mashing. Lugaru uses a context-sensitive combat system to put all the moves at your finger tips. It’s up to you to choose the right move at the right time and think your way through the fights.
Open-Ended Strategy: Each level presents you with an environment and a series of enemies. How you choose to defeat your adversaries is entirely up to you. Storm in from the front and fight everyone at once or ambush your foes one at a time with stealth attacks.
Ragdoll Physics: Not only does striking your enemies do damage, but so does colliding with the environment once you’ve knocked them off their feet. Nothing does more damage than a swift rabbit kick that sends the enemy hurtling into a stone wall.
Environmental Detail: Factors like wind direction and whether or not you remembered to clean the blood off your knife affect your ability to sneak up on the enemy undetected. Brutal AI: Enemies in Lugaru prefer unfair fights. Expect them to shout for back up, attack in groups, and exploit any superior weaponry they can find.
Moddability: Turning on Lugaru’s debug mode gives you access to the map editor so you can build your own levels, campaigns and mods. Debug mode also enables crazy cheats that allow players to fly, have infinite health, explode enemies’ heads and set themselves on fire further igniting anyone who comes too close.
New HD Textures: The original Lugaru has gotten a more modern, graphical makeover while still staying true to the game’s spirit. Special thanks to Tim Soret for his HD texture pack.

Awesome! - This is probably my favorite game ever. It has fast, intense combat that feels very real. It is a little old, but it's a great value at $10. So… get it!

good, but - I have a new macbook pro- one that i got christmas of 2010, i love it. Lugaru is an awesome game, with challenging gameplay, intense combat, and awesome replay value. BUT, for some reason it likes to crash all of the time. Maybe in your downtime on working on overgrowth you could fix the crash/freeze problems lugaru has.....oh, and black shades does that frequently too..........but download it! Both great games!!
good - ok,now it is freezing, Please!!!! we all could use an update
i love this game - i love this game. its freaking awesome. but, it does get boring after you beat it. so. go on wolfires hompage and go to lugaru. click on 'mods'. download whatever alternate campainge you want. otherwises, still one of my fav.
Incredibly Fun & Challenging - The good: - First off, I have to say this game feels right. Jumping, running, attacking, dodging… everything feels so seamless. I feel absorbed in the game… it's a really great feeling that I think a lot of big budget games just completely miss the mark on. It's weird and difficult to explain, but I feel like you'll just understand once you play. - Levels are short and load instantly. This is good, because you'll be dying a lot, and each time you do, you'll be restarting the level. I consider myself a pretty experienced gamer, and yet on the middle difficulty, I'm having to retry levels at least five times before I get through them. This is great, as it makes it feel much more rewarding when you finally get through a level. - The controls are fairly straight forward. They consist mainly of: A crouch/dodge key, a jump key, an attack key, four movement keys, and the mouse for moving the camera. However, the keys are context sensitive. That is, crouching then moving will cause a crouch walk, while moving and then crouching will cause a roll. The controls take a small bit of getting used to, but they'll be explained in the tutorial. - The game also doesn't demand much for hardware. It's running smooth as silk on my original 2007 Mac Book Air. The not so good: - Make no mistake, this game was not a big budget one. Sound effects and music are quite repetitive. Characters make squeaking sounds rather than actually having voice actors. The script and story is fairly lousy (and, parental note, is PG-13… there is some crude language.) While the pacing is great from a gameplay perspective, it cuts into the ability of the story to have any emotional impact on the player. Environments are pretty vast and kind of empty. Conclusion: My "not so good" comments are really just nitpicking. I know without mentioning them some people would feel misled. I really think the game is excellent, and I give it a 5/5. I have not had the issues others have about the game not saving.
Love this game, but it crashes - This is one of my favorite mac games, but it deletes my progress every 10 minutes or so. I can't stand it. 15 inch mbp, 8gb ram, 2.2 ghz quad core, Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB graphics
