port of the 1980's side-scrolling WWI dogfighting game
This is an updated version of the 1980's game developed by David L. Clark of
BMB Compuscience Canada. It has been adapted to run under *nix using the SDL
toolkit. Poor graphics, stupid AI, and horrible sound await you. The gameplay
is simple, addictive, and fun. A `side-scroller', you pilot your biplane
across a static field, destorying enemy encampments and planes.
sopwith for Debian
I suggest you play sopwith by running 'sopwith -q'. The music really is
terrible. Really truly terrible.
Oh, and quit via Ctrl+C. Ctrl+C three times if you're in a real hurry.
