Cylindrix project is a polygonal 3D action strategy shooter.

It released for DOS in 1995, and is now ported to Windows and Linux.

Way way back in 1995 I was one of two programmers who wrote the game Cylindrix. It was a DOS game.

We wrote it before Windows was a viable option for gaming. Because of DOS's limitations we had to use DJGPP, the protected mode GCC for DOS.

This allowed us to use more than 640k of RAM without having to mess with goofy EMS managers. We had to write everything from scratch...the keyboard interrupts, the graphics access, everything.

I've been wanting to port it over to Windows for a while, since it wouldn't run on Windows2000 or XP.

I recently got a burst of energy and decided to do the port to both Windows and Linux at the same time. I used the Allegro library to accomplish this.
