Lemmingball Z

Lemmingball Z is a fighting game for linux and windows, loosely based on `Dragonball Z` the hit anime. And when we say loosely based, we mean with a big twist. Instead off the normal characters from the anime, this game features cute LEMMINGS fighting DBZ style!

Main features

  • Destructible 3d terrain
  • Ability to add your own levels/characters/moves to the game
  • Multiplayer with 2-4 players online or local
  • Good old-fashioned Hot-seat play
  • Slow-motion, like in “The Matrix”
  • Fancy graphics, like cell-shading and stuff
  • Netplay, without configuring or hamachi
  • Stupid AI to practice with
  • Blood! lots of it! ?


LBZ was created somewhere at the end of 1999 and the start of 2000. It was my first try at making a game, up till then i only coded small utility’s/effects. LBZ was first written in Quick BASIC, for DOS and it had 800×600 resolution and sprites, and very basic gameplay. When the game became to big for basic, i ported it to PASCAL and then almost immediately to C++ (using OpenGL for graphics). After this LBZ quickly evolved, it got features like destructible terrain and slow-motion.

The future

LBZ is a bit of a “pet project”…. it will constantly evolve. I don’t plan on stopping with this, since it’s a lot of fun working on LBZ! Things i would like to create for LBZ in the future include:

  • Interactive levels, with scripts, triggered events
  • 100% mod-ability! Be able to mod any aspect of the game. 60% done.
  • Ports to most major game consoles

  1. Seems impossible to connect now? Trying to play with a friend and console is confirming his as connected as player 2, but somehow I’m not able to vote to let him in? I can see me voting yes in the console and then it times out anyway.

  2. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve
    worked hard on. Any tips?

  3. wish I could play this game but I can’t because I have a openGL that is not compatible with the one now, even when I play the old version I still can’t play it. is there a way I could fix this problem without buy a new computer?

  4. damn finally come back and seems the game is gone, can’t even install it as it can’t connect to update =(

  5. I remember playing this as a freshman in high school.
    I love that this is still going on.
    It needs single player story mode, yes.
    Although, character customize capabilities are a must!
