Really Rather Good Battles In Space

Really Rather Good Battles In Space is a real time strategy game with fleets of spaceships. It is a single player real time strategy game following the fall of the great Artilian empire. It features a short but relatively polished single player campaign, pretty (albeit 2d) graphics, spaceships, and explosions.

            b0rken Makefile
            While attempting to build on ALT Linux (current/unstable using -Wl,--as-needed by default) I've stumbled upon hasty LIBS/LDFLAGS in Makefile (which has DOS EOLs btw); you shouldn't plug -l* into LDFLAGS, these belong to LIBS which are to be substituted after object files, not scattered around:
