I've been browsing modDB and found this stand-alone game that has a very w00t-ish feel to it. Check out the movie on the front page:

Only just noticed this had a quick play through very UT99ish kept trying to use the alternate fire mode to no avail.Nice find.

I like the cartoonish look, but it is most definitely a w00t rip-off. :p

Go to the latest downloads - scroll to the bottom, the Warsow 0.32 for Linux link ...
See the picture?
That's a JohnnySix map in every respect - it could almost be a straight rip.

If I didn't know any better I would definitely say this was a Johnny map:

I'm not talking about the archy, though the archy has a Johnny feel, but rather the textures could be straight off his HD it's amazing the likeness to me. Even the mesh on the floor. Spooky

That map pic (TDM Baxandall) uses all EvilLair textures (from the EvilLair X set), apart from the red JumpPad/PickupBase, the lava, the Warsow banner and the blue grid thing on the ceiling.
I've been playing Warsow for a few months, it's much closer than Quake 3 than Unreal Tournament. It's a game focused on competitive Duel and heavily on movement skills: it takes the best movement tecniques from the best competitive FPSs around (Dodges and WallJumps from UT; StrafeJumping, PlasmaClimbing and RocketJumping from Quake3; BunnyHopping from PainKiller) and mixes them, creating a very fun movement system. The weapons and pickups are very similar to Q3's, but the RailGun is WAY underpowered. There isn't alternate fire, but there's an interesting ammo system (when you will pick the ammo in the map your weapon will become a bit stronger, while picking up the weapon will just give you normal ammo).
I really recommend to take a look at this game, but don't expect anything close to W00T in gameplay. To compensate for the movement speed (once you get the hang of it you can happily move around at 1000 ups (units are similar to UT), so rushing into the flag and zipping out from the enemy base is really easy) there's a Counter that prevents you from picking up the flag if you don't stay on it for 2 seconds (capturing too).
As you may have noticed, since this is a game meant for competitive gaming the looks are kept clean (most maps have cel-shading).
Version 0.4 is out, get it at www.warsow.net under the Downloads section.
