TuxFighter - 0.49
Little Asteroids like shooter game. Shall become eventually a python tutorial for kids.
Your goal is to waste valuable lifetime (or even paid worktime) while steering and spinning a pinguin-shaped alter ego throug a universe full of nasty enemys. The enemys try to collide into you but YOU CAN FIGHT BACK ! Shoot rockets at your enemys but be careful, you have always just twice the number of rockets as the number of enemys on the screen. So aim careful, because some rockets may bounce back from the edge of the screen. Gain extra points or even applause by killing enemys be a rocket reflecting from walls. Enter the highscore-list and try to improve your shot/miss ratio. Explore the effect of 4 different power-up's.
new version with lot of small improvements and some new features: Rockets can hurt Tux's Score. Debian-Power-up kills all Aliens on the screen. Hemp Icons makes (among other things) your rockets go crazy. This version is tested under WinXP and Ubuntu Dapper Linux.
