Game Sheet: Atlantik
(from the original archive of "The Linux Game Tome")


Atlantik is an open-source game client for Monopoly-like boardgames for computers running the KDE desktop environment.

Purpose of the Atlantic board game is to acquire land in major cities in North America and Europe while being a transatlantic traveller. All game modes are served by monopd, a dedicated game server designed for Atlantik. One of the game modes plays like the popular real estate board game based on Atlantic City street names (aka Monopoly®).

Uho. It looks like the developement has stopped. that's a pity, the server was almost finished.

Hi, it's the author. I could make a backport to Qt 2, although I think soon enough almost everyone will have upgraded to KDE 3. Also, Atlantik/Kmonop will be in KDE 3.1.

I'd love to be able to rate this game. However, there are no docs with the distribution of either atlantik or monopd. So I can't figure out how to start a game (starting monopd in one term and atlantik in another doesn't seem to allow the creation of a new game). But the screenshots look great!

I really like that old game from C64. It has sound already and works great :-)

I've played it from FreeBSD with KDE 3.1 and it's very fun. I won a german guy :)

It needs better local support, It's righ now partially translated but lots and lots server replies are in english. Moreover sometimes the navigation between screens is confuse.

Even those little problems, it's very fun to play.

It is a very funny game, although the interface should be worked a bit more.

In Atlantik 0.6.0, there will be a GUI for connecting to custom servers. For 0.5.x, you can connect with atlantik -h localhost -p 1234 , but obviously you'll need two clients for a game: computer AI is not finished yet, although I've started to work on a bot for monopd.

Just translate it yourself :-) kde have some nice tools (Qt linguistic) to help with the task. After that submit it to the mantainer so everybody could use your new and shiny translations.

I am running on KDE 3.3.2 on FreeBSD 5.3 and it seems to work GREAT. There is room for more features like calculating my net worth etc... I am looking for servers. The game will locate about three servers automatically. Only one of the servers listed users on line. Are there Windows versions of this game so I can play against my unenlightend friends? Thanks strben

I like this game, especially the fact you are playing against real players. There aren't many around though which may be due to the fact it needs some work doing on the UI, it isn't very intuitive overall. However I can see a lot of potential for this game, and hope it gets better with every release.
