Shipz is a comic-style, multiplayer, 2D space-shooter, which involves both skill and tactics. Shipz is inspired by the game Gravity for Net Yaroze.
To play Shipz, you will have to connect to a Shipz-server. Currently this server cannot be run on the same machine as the client. If you are lucky, the server running on a machine at Steve's is online, so you can join the heat.
If this is not the case, one could start it's own server in the following way:
$ shipz server
NOTE: only the name of the levelinfo-file is needed, there is no need to supply the path.
To start the client, type:
$ shipz client
This will start Shipz in windowed mode, and with sound disabled. If you have compiled with the frontend however, you may just issue:
Which will popup a frontend to Shipz, allowing you to choose between server and client mode, and also enabling you the choice between windowed/fullscreen mode and sound.
