(I know this isn't technically a map, but hell, I want to have a chance for MOTM! :D)

Flat-Life is a singleplayer/multiplayer goldsource mod turning the game to a 2D-ish platform shooter type game.

Currently in Version 1.2. Be sure to try multiplayer! ^^

Yay, Flat-Life!! :D

While I think this mod is great, it isn't living up to its full potential.
avatar ChickenFist says: 29th March 2008, 19:45 PM
How would I make it do that? ;)

Multiplayer power-ups, gogo!

..and I miss using a (left arrow) and d (right arrow) to walk/strafe sidewards.
avatar ChickenFist says: 30th March 2008, 12:44 PM
Strafing and powerups are both in the newest version, go get it!

Seriously that hosting is horrid (i gave up after the third page and counter).

There's better hosting out there. one that's free and easy is gmail. open up a gmail account (you don't need an invite anymore) and go to this link:

You can upload up to 100MB of hassle-free hotlinkable goodness : )

Inspire yourself form counterstrike2D
avatar ChickenFist says: 2nd April 2008, 12:18 PM
Cap'n, there's several mirrors, all can't be that bad, right? :P
But thanks for the hosting tip anyway...

Yeah i didn't notice that and went for the rapidshare link (the filefront one is better with no hassles).

downloading... = )

You put in the map vault so i have to rate it :)

Originality 9/10
While this kind of game in well known, the fact that it uses a FPS engine is quite spectacular.

Playability 9/10
While it may take some time to grasp the controls and physics, it is really fun and easy to play.

Visuals 10/10
Some great maps are included that really show off the appeal that this kind of game can provide.

Cleanliness 9/10
Minor nitpicks here and there but nothing serious. This version has not yet crashed on me.

User Options 10/10
There is full user customisation with mapping resources and even setting the new graphics to suit your computer.

Total 10/10 (5 stars)
Naturally, 5 STARS!! A great mod ChickenFist, you have done very well, keep improving it, there are heaps more things you can do to this mod! :-)

Flat-life ROCKS!!!! Not only is it original (sortof) but it uses spirit AND comes with a 3.5 FGD!!! Now THAT is Mapper-friendly! 5/5!
EDIT: and 1.2 doesn't crash as much as the old versions.

Eyyy, is there another mirror for this? Original host is dead.
avatar SourceSkyBoxer says: star star star star star 10th December 2016, 02:13 AM
Lol I know that since I found Flat Life :P But it has realistic water :) But it is very old opengl :O Please change to new version because Flat Life opengl is very incompatible to newest display drivers!

You know that? Like hl-bump has same old incompatible opengl ( Glaux )

PS: I forget to say about Cry of Fear, Paranoia and Flat Life have old openGL. :( But your map looks great. Nothing say to bad... :)
