The '''''[[http://clonk.de/?lng=en Clonk]]''''' titles are a series of SideView German PC games, that put you in command of one or more of the eponymous clonks. As a general rule, you'll need to use them to build a functioning settlement, harvest all the gold/oil/whatever in a map, or [[CompetitiveMultiplayer kill off all of someone else's clonks]]. But it might be a race. Or a [[TenLittleMurderVictims murder mystery in progress]]. Or a game of tag. Or maybe there'll be [[WideOpenSandbox no goal at all.]] It varies hugely between levels, since the engine is fairly versatile and players can easily develop their own objects and scenarios.

* {{Badass}}: The Special Force Trooper is a deliberate parody of this. He '''''kicks down trees'''''.

* StopHelpingMe: With its strong knockback/pull and returning properties, the Bouncing Spear is a powerful ranged weapon for the strength class, but inconsiderate use of it can screw up allies' targeting by knocking enemies out of close combat or a spell's area of effect.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Iceblast spell looks cool and deals high damage, but with the preparation time, enemies will usually interrupt your channeling or jump out of range... unless you combine it with stun, the Spider Web spell or the like, in which case it becomes AwesomeYetPractical.

* {{Religion}}: The FantasyPantheon consists of two opposing deities called Sawelô and Teiwaz [[note]]which are names of [[NorseMythology norse runes]][[/note]]. The Order of Sawelô seems to be light-oriented and has powers like a [[EnergyBall lightning ball]] [[HolyHandGrenade attack]], while the Legion of Teiwaz is portrayed as darker and more sinister, with powers like [[LifeDrain a bloodsucking ray]]. Though LightIsNotGood and DarkIsNotEvil here; it more seems like GreyAndGreyMorality. Both factions fight each other with the same fanaticism, not to speak of their shared hatred for the atheistic mages and kanderians.

Added DiffLines:

* BlindIdiotTranslation: Comprehensible for the most part, but some names and descriptions are overly literal. The clonk's is an example - "smart" would fit a lot better than "witty" - and the lorry is more of a cart, as it's usually pushed by hand.

* AchievementSystem: A few fanmade scenarios have elaborate ones.



* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Throw a strong flint into a gold vein and stand too close, [[TooDumbToLive fire a cannon upwards]], or drop a zap nest next to yourself.

* HumansAreWhite: Outside of Far Worlds, Western and fanmade expansion packs, all clonks look like identical stocky Middle-European guys. Open Clonk changes this.



* OneGenderRace: Before Open Clonk, all clonks are dudes, with the exception of a few {{NPC}}s in adventure scenarios.



* SomeDexterityRequired: For not falling off an edge with classic controls activated.

to:

* SomeDexterityRequired: For not falling off an edge with classic The "Classic" control scheme, the only one before Rage, is idiosyncratic: you keep moving into a given direction until you press the stop key. Players used to more conventional jump'n'run controls activated.(which Clonk Rage also offers) will likely fall off quite a few cliffs.



* ProjectileSpell: ZigZagged. Most offensive spells are aimed, while most support spells directly target an ally, but both have exceptions.



[[AC:Codename Modern Combat]]
A shooter pack based on Hazard systems, with intricate mechanics and a lot of decoration. Inspired primarily by the {{VideoGame/Battlefield|Battlefield}} series.

* AchievementSystem
* CombatMedic: The medics can hold their own in a fight quite well. The medic's submachine gun had to be nerfed more than any other weapon in this pack.
* ExplosionPropulsion: Explosions have large shockwaves that can knock clonks outside the damage radius off their feet.
* FlashOfPain
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: The Antiskill's riot shield eats up bullets
* MagicalDefibrillator: Zap a dying ally with it and they'll reliably get back on their feet and regain their health over a short time.
* PistolWhip: Pressing the fire button near an enemy causes this.
* ShieldBash: Another ability of the riot shield. It seems to have more knockback than the PistolWhip.
* TacticalRockPaperScissors: The riot shield stops bullets. Explosives ignore the shield. Bullets can shoot down explosives.
