Description [fr]

Un jeu inspiré de Gravity Force (ATARI), par la Gravity Wars Team.

Gravity Wars est Un jeu inspiré de Gravity Force (ATARI) dont l'objectif est de guider un vaisseau spatial en collectant bonus et clés et en composant avec la gravité, l'inertie et les nombreux dangers.

Gravity Wars Team :
Sami Niemi: Coding, Design, Graphics, Levels

Debian :

Gravity Wars est inspiré de Gravity Force, un des meilleurs jeux d'Amiga. Cette version est un peu différente, avec une résolution beaucoup plus grande et de meilleurs graphismes.

Le but du jeu est de guider un vaisseau spatial vers la sortie en utilisant uniquement la poussée et l'orientation, et en combattant la gravité et l'inertie. Il inclut de nouvelles fonctionnalités comme l'eau, des portes explosives, des objets bonus, des ventilateurs (et du vent) et d'autres effets spéciaux comme l'explosion de balles ou l'éclaboussure de l'eau.

Gravity Wars n'est plus maintenu en amont et ce paquet Debian devrait être considéré comme la version amont actuelle.


Description [en]

A Gravity Force clone for the Linux operating system

Gravity Wars is based on Gravity Force, one of the greatest games for the Amiga. This version is a little different, with a much higher resolution, and better graphics. It also includes some new features like water, exploding doors, bonus objects, fans (ie. wind), and some other special effects like exploding bullets, and splashing water..

Gravity Wars has been developed from scratch by Sami Niemi in June 1995. The game comes with a DOS based level editor which is coded by Pär Johannesson, the gfx dude. The level editor hopefully means a longer lifespan for the game, since everybody can now design their own levels. I've also included a C source/bin for converting the editor output to an object map. More about that in the technical section. The game also gives a level code, so you can start from the last level.

HOW TO PLAY
-----------

The goal is to get all the keys without getting killed. After you've picked up the last one, the hidden StarGate opens. You're supposed to fly into it, and it'll beam you into the next level. You can pick up bonus objects on the way. The round (look kinda like the European Union logos) objects are extra lifes. The bottles with an "F" on contain extra fuel. The clocks give you extra time. Rest of the objects just give you points. You can shoot yourself through the red doors (try to shoot into the water), and fill your tank by landing on the fuel platform. That should get you started..

Installation [fr]

Il n'a plus de site dédié, le lien ci-contre vous mènera sur un serveur Debian.


TOUCHES / CONTROLS :
Left/Right cursor keys turn the ship.
- Forward cursor key turns the throttle on.
- CTRL shoots.
- ESC/CTRL-C kills the game. Mouse buttons also kill the game.
- ALT-F1 switches to the first console
(if you started the game in some other)

Test (1.1) :
Il est très joli, dommage que l'écran soit un peu petit.
