Word War vi iconWord War vi 1.01

A side-scrolling shoot 'em up game for Linux
Word War vi is your basic side-scrolling shoot 'em up '80s style arcade game.

You pilot your "vi"per craft through core memory, rescuing lost .swp files, avoiding OS defenses, and wiping out those memory hogging emacs processes.


Pressing 'q' puts in a quarter and starts the game.
Arrow keys (or, of course vi's hjkl keys) to move
'z' or spacebar fires signal number -9 (lazer)
'b' injects NULL pointer into execution stream (drops a bomb)
'c' forks to evade pursuers (throws chaff)
'A' advances to a new level (This is really just for debugging)
'9' commits suicide (just for debugging)
