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 800x600 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. Hey, I keep getting hit with the “OpenGL renderer was not found” I checked the support page, and it said to update my driver (I have an Intel Core i7) which I did. I still keep getting hit with the same pop-up. I’ve tried everything, and I don’t know what to do now so I need some help.

    1. What videocard are you running on? Nvidia? ATI/AMD?

      You need an opengl 3.3 compatible video chip or card.

      Core I7 has 1 built in and that one is supported from generation 3. Core I7-3XXX and up. (Intel HD graphics 2500 and 4000)

  2. For some reason every time I go into the game and try to start a local game, the game crashes and a message pops up saying “EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION,0,O”. Just wondering if you know whats happening here or how to fix it? Thanks.

  3. Hello im having a problem while updating the game, i tryed the updatefix but still didn’t work can anyone help me please?

    1. Connecting from brazil? The webhosting party may be blocking you.. I’ve sent them a message it should be resolved soon.
      To start the game without updating, create a shortcut with the added parameter –noupdate.
