Thanks for add the alternative key. The moving mobs with shadow, shooting and explosion seems nice. Unfortunly only two waves to shoot down. Anyway good work. :)

How long has the term "Mobs" been around? I only heard of it when I started playing MineCraft. But now I see it a lot more. I NEVER saw it before MineCraft! I still use terms like NPC and Enemy.

I've seen it a lot before Minecraft.

Since forever, more or less. The earliest that I've heard was during the MUD days, but it was probably used before that in bbs door games.

Apparently, that's when it was created, short for "mobile unit" in MUD1. I first heard it when playing WoW, where players use it to refer to hostile units (monsters).

You guys noticed perhaps that I'm a lot roguelike fan and so I'm also a bit rpg player and I have also some considerable mmorg playtime (not WOW). Mob is kind very used word specially in mmorgs when a party confront a lot of "mobs" that we have to control and contain with some tactics before we lose control and they overcome us (remember Leeroy situation?,well a kind of that situation). Since then Mobs is being used sometimes in other genres to designate some large number of enemies but losing a bit the context of uncontrolled enemies. And perhaps yes I think that in old MUD BBS days the term already was invented but since never really used MUD's can't tell about the use there (not so much D&D geek).
