BlindTux is a musical quiz game. The goal is to identify the artist, title, or year of a song by choosing an answer from among 4. The maximum number of players is 4. For now, it is played with the keyboard, but soon players will be able to choose with controls they want: keyboard, gamepad, or maybe buzzer.
Knights is an action game for two players involving two knights who must explore randomly generated dungeons and complete various quests. Each game revolves around a quest. A typical quest would involve finding some items and carrying them back to your starting point. This may sound easy, but as there are only enough items in the dungeon for one player to win, you may end up having to kill your opponent to get his stuff! Other quests involve escaping from the dungeon, fighting a duel to the death against the enemy knight, or destroying an ancient Book using a special Wand. While exploring the dungeon, you will find aid in the form of weapons, potions, and magical spells, but beware, for there are also deadly traps, bloodthirsty vampire bats, and zombies who exist only to kill living knights! This is a remake of an Amiga game by Kalle Marjola from 1994. This version has generally smoother gameplay than the original, and has full support for online play.
Blood Makes the Grass Grow Green (BMTG3) is a multi-player, side-scrolling, 1-dimensional strategy game that pits two people against each other in a duel over a stretch of land. Each player is positioned in a bunker at opposite ends of the map and tasked with deploying the right personnel and vehicles to capture FOBs (forward operating bases) and overrun your enemy's bunker. Currently there are 5 different units available. Timing, unit selection, and basic strategy are all necessary for success.
SDLbits is a very lightweight SDL wrapper for Java. This library was designed to be very small and simple. It does not use Swig, but goes directly from "native" Java definitions to the sdlbits C wrapper library to SDL or OpenGL (in C). All symbols are exposed as they would be in C, except the "SDL_" prefix has been removed, since all names are inside the SDL class. The SDL structures from C are translated to very simple Java classes, such as SDL.VideoInfo. Most fields are exposed as read-only "get" methods, but "set" methods for writable members are supported as well. These classes simply interface to the actual C data with a ByteBuffer "pointer".
CorsixTH is a clone of Theme Hospital. As computers evolve, we risk losing some classic games. Bullfrog's Theme Hospital, published in 1997, is a classic simulation game, but getting it to run natively on modern operating systems is getting progressively harder. CorsixTH aims to reimplement the game engine of Theme Hospital, and to be able to load the original game data files. This means that you will need a purchased copy of Theme Hospital, or a copy of the demo, in order to use CorsixTH. After most of the original engine has been reimplemented, the project will serve as a base from which extensions to the original game can be made.
