kobodl - Kobo Deluxe, an enhanced version of the scrolling game XKobo
kobodl [ options ]
Kobo Deluxe is a 3’rd person scrolling 2D shooter with a simple and
responsive control system - which you’ll need to tackle the tons of
enemy ships that shoot at you, chase you, circle around you shooting,
or even launch other ships at you, while you’re trying to destroy
the labyrinth shaped bases. There are 50 action packed levels
with smoothly increasing difficulty, and different combinations of
enemies that require different tactics to be dealt with successfully.
Kobo Deluxe has an improved graphics engine that can take full
advantage of any video frame rate, without affecting the game logic
and timing. It also adds sound effects, flashy "dashboard" graphics,
full-screen mode and various other features expected from a modern
game. Kobo Deluxe is based on SDL, and therefore builds and runs on
all major operating systems, as well as some more unusual platforms.
In short, Kobo Deluxe is loads of classical arcade style fun for just
about any machine with graphics and sound!
The ship can be controlled with the keyboard, or optionally a mouse or
joystick. With the keyboard, the arrow keys move the ship, and the
shift key shoots. Escape can be used to exit the game.
Note that most options can be configured in the game or via the config
