Tundra - 0.7

A port of the DMA Design classic "Lemmings" written in Python.

Tundra is a fully-featured recreation of the DMA Design title "Lemmings", originally released in 1991. Since then it has been ported to a multitude of platforms, and is regarded by many as a cult classic. Simply put, you are in control of a group of small furry woodland creatures, who fall out of an entrance hatch and start aimlessly bumping into things. It is your job, as the gentle protagonist, to help these fine beasts of burden to the safety of the exit using skills such as climbing, building, bashing and digging.

You will need a DOS copy of "Lemmings" and/or "Oh No! MORE Lemmings", so that Tundra can extract the required game resources. Don't worry if you've misplaced your old floppies, this is easily found with a quick interweb search (such as "dos lemmings download").

Requirements: Python 2.4, pygame (Numeric not neccesary), PyXML, PIL.
This game makes extensive use of the pgu GUI toolkit by Phil Hassey. Thanks Phil!

Changes

Loads of improvements in this release, including a new titlescreen, some crash fixes, and a menu option for decrunching graphics.

Full details can be seen on the release page, and all downloads (including music packs) are available on the project page.

UPGRADE NOTES:If you are upgrading from an older version of Tundra, please copy the following folders (and their contents) from your old release to your new release:
* ./pixmaps/lemmings
* ./pixmaps/count
* ./music
* ./levels
* ./styles

You can now safely discard the old release.
Not copying the above files will result in a loss of your game progress, as by default, the game will prune levels from the internal database that it cannot find in the resource folders.

Back up your [user folder]/.tundra file before updating the release if youâ??re paranoid.
