X11 version of zblast, shoot 'em up space game

zblast is a shoot 'em up space game with a cool sound.

The goal of zblast is to shoot and destroy all enemy ships. When you get it before your ship is destroyed, you can go to a next stage (called "wave" in this game).

Unlike most of other shoot 'em up games, in zblast your ship can bear a fair amount of damage (at least 30 hits and you can gain extra energy during the game). It does not mean that you are safe -- you just need it. In fact, enemy shots are fast and the sky is FILLED with them. If you enjoy surviving a rain of laser beams by dodging them, you may need another package.

The most interesting part of zblast is its music. With the abstract graphics (simple line-only diagrams), zblast can provide a taste of cyber-space.

Two versions of the zblast program are available, one uses svgalib and one uses X11. This package contains X11 version of the game. The command is named "xzb" rather than "xblast" because there is already another xblast (a bomberman clone).

Package version:1.3-3


zblast 1.3 - shoot the thingies for Linux console, or X.

The auto-fire is rather slow because the upstream thinks it is
a bit of a cheat (see the manpage).  If you want a faster auto-fire,
you have to compile zblast by yourself.  Modify the macro DELAY_AUTO_FIRE
in zblast.c as you like.  The upstream stripped the delay adjustment
feature from my original patch.

some tips for the gam


ZBLAST(6)                       Games                      ZBLAST(6)

       zblast, xzb - blast the bad guys (svgalib and X versions)

       zblast/xzb [-small] [-dbuf] [-nomusic] [-nosound] [-autofire]

       zblast is a shoot-'em-up.

       -small on  xzb,  use  a 320x240 window instead of the default
              640x480. On zblast, use 320x200 (quicker)
