Jailbreak has also appeared twice in PC Gamer magazine, including a
review in the magazine, featured on PC Gamer's Magazine CD, and
included in many different leagues and tournaments.
What is Jailbreak?
Jailbreak is a deathmatch mod for Quake 2 in the tradition
of CTF. Basically, there are two teams.Each team has a base with a
Jail in it. When you kill someone on the otherteam (or they kill
themselves :) they go to your Jail. When your Jail is full (ie, the
entire team is captured) they all get Executed in a shower of
gibsand your team earns massive quantities of frags. However, on
each base is abutton to free the people in Jail, so the other team
will be trying to freetheir people. And of course, if you get killed
you go to the opposing Jail. So, basically the game is a
slaughterfest with each team trying to balance between defending
their jail, killing the other team, and freeing their own team.
Jailbreak introduces new readouts to the Quake 2 status bar.
While playing, in the upper left corner of the screen, there is a
box with your skin in it, so you know what team you are on. The
number next to it is the team frag total, the number in the upper
right corner is your individual frag count. When a team member is in
jail, the bars will appear over your player skin. That means you
should bust out the BFG and go rescue them.
addition to the Quake 2 gameplay are controllable turrets. Usually
guarding an entrance to a base or to the jail, these can be
controlled by the player, and be used to shoot other players. Some
shoot rockets, some railgun slugs, others can be different, but they
are fully controlled by the player, by moving it normally with the
directional buttons, and the "+use" command (without the quotes) to
fire it (you probably want to bind that to a key first). One thing
you should watch out for while using a turret is behind your back -
a person could easily sneak up on you while you're having a gib fest
on your turret. So especially when your back is to an open area, be
careful when you are using the
