Turtle Arena, inspired by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, is a free and open source cross-platform third-person action game using a modified version of the ioquake3 engine.

Turtle Arena is currently focused on multiplayer (with multiple game modes) and can be played with human players over a network, splitscreen, or with AI players. In the future there will also be a single player / cooperative reach the end of the level mode with AI enemies.
