korovic is an arcade game written in Python.
Working from his secret volcano lair in the Pacific Ocean, Doctor Korovic has created an atomic super-squid with which to take over the world!
Alas, Susie, the squid, is allergic to sea water.
Doctor Korovic has conceived a most fiendish plan - Susie must take to the skies!
To run the game, run run_game.py, or if you have installed it (see below), then just run korovic.
You can start the game at any level by using the --level switch, eg.
korovic --level 2
Doctor Korovic's Flying Atomic Squid is packaged with distribute. You will need either distribute or setuptools to be able to install this (distribute is preferred).
It can be installed with setup.py:
python setup.py install
Or from PyPI:
pip install korovic
Both of these approaches work with virtualenvs, and will install dependencies. Note that this depends on the dependencies being available to pip/easy_install. In particular pygame seems not to be currently pip installable on Linux as it selects a Mac build by default. The other packages are automatically installable.
In the editor, click and drag on the menu to scroll it.
You can also click on many components to adjust their angles, and drag them between slots. Most components are limited in the slots they can be put into.
When you are ready to fly, click "Fly".
Control is on the number keys. Icons in the bottom right will display the key for each component you have attached to Susie.
