xrick is a clone of Rick Dangerous. Written entirely in C, it relies on the Simple DirectMedia Layer library and has been ported to Linux (its primary target). Way before Lara Croft, back in the 1980's and early 1990's, Rick Dangerous was the Indiana Jones of computer games, running away from rolling rocks and avoiding traps in places from South America to a futuristic missile base via Egypt and the Schwarzendumpf castle.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: The build system has been reworked so that xrick can easily be built on Unix boxes as well as on non-Unix boxes (do not rely on symbolic links, etc.). Function keys are used instead of numeric keys for various game controls, as some non-US keyboard require that SHIFT is pressed for numbers. A potential buffer overflow in command line parameter handling has been fixed. The joystick is (hopefully) OK now. All sounds (music, effects, etc.) have been implemented. The sound on Windows has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release has alpha sound support. Basic sounds are here, including the Waaaaaa of Death, but music is not implemented. The quality is far from being perfect.
