Video Meanies compiled to Apple Mac and Linux for testing #indiedev #gamedev #gaming #WednesdayWisdom

A wise person once told me, listen to your userbase. šŸ™‚

After getting a little feed back from my first post, it would appear there is a need for a Linux version and a Mac version.

Having the option to do this, I decided I would. So, that being said, I’ve compiled both and I have tested it on El Capitan on the Mac, and Ubuntu 16.04LTS on Linux.

Links are below.

I’m assuming if you are a Linux user you’ll know how to install and the same goes for Mac users, if you are unable to install it, remember, Google is your friend. I pretended to be a user who didn’t know and found plenty of links around to show me how to get things working, to stop the ‘security questions’ on the Apple Mac, how to download and install a .deb package, etc, etc

Feel free to provide feedback if they don’t work on your machine, but only when it comes to the running of the game, not on how to get it installed, etc

Linux Ubuntu 16.04LTS

Apple Mac El Captian

Windows .exe zipped up in-case people want it

Hope you enjoy it. (Hope it works šŸ™‚ )

    Thanks for remake!
    I didn’t know for that game even that I’m C64 fan… but I found out that C16 is more sexy then C64 version imho.
    Just two things: Linux version is missing icon from Win version, and
    Windows version (under [email protected]) froze at some level, after I lost last life. Funny, It gave me another life, just player is not seen and can’t move – just fire at left.

    Thanks for the feedback, I’ll look into the ‘icon being missing’ as at build time I’m giving it an icon.. very weird.

    I’ll have to set my linux machine setup to test, as I was only testing it really quick on a VM (via Windows), again, thanks for the feedback.

    Very nice work.
    I saw you made two introes. Could I get the source code? It would be for educational purpose only. Well, I am back to my c64 after almost three decades and I decide to make little intro.You can reach me at [email protected]
    Greets from Croatia…

    Sorry, I’ve not managed to convert the source code over yet from my 128>64 PDS system I had back in the day. That being said, there are plenty of websites online that can provide you with a good starting block into getting back into C64 Machine Language.
