SDL Asylum

SDL Asylum is a C/SDL port of Andy Southgate's 1994 game Asylum, originally for the Acorn Archimedes. In the game, Young Sigmund has a few problems. To help him resolve his mental instability, you must enter the surreal world of his inner mind and shut down the malfunctioning brain cells.

        Release Notes: Asylum now uses OpenGL instead of plain SDL to provide accelerated graphics, higher resolution, a choice of resolutions, and a new experimental feature (alpha quality): the game can be displayed at half scale, so four times as much of the map is visible at once.

          Release Notes: The entire codebase has been run through 'uncrustify' and the original monolithic source separated into 11 moderately-sized files, with additional refactoring to make them reasonably modular. This release also includes fixes to build with g++ 4.3, with MinGW, and on Haiku.
