rRootage is an OpenGL-based vertical shooter. You move your ship around, shooting up at the enemy in a "level boss" format. The boss shoots different shaped objects at you, and you must dodge them while shooting him (or her). Watch out, because your shields are limited!

  • [NEW] Xbox360 Controller. Required OS X Driver.
  • [NEW] PlayStation 3 Controller.

This version doesn't work on 10.8.3. It crashes at launch with a Dyld error. It looks like the library path was hard-coded as the path on the developer's machine, so the game can't find it on mine:

Library not loaded: @rpath/SDL.framework/Versions/A/SDL
Referenced from: /Volumes/VOLUME/rRootage.app/Contents/MacOS/rr
Reason: image not found

Also, this version of the game is ridiculously huge because the frameworks were built incorrectly. Instead of using symbolic links, they just contain multiple copies of the same files in different folders. I tried to build the frameworks using MacPorts and then use them to replace the frameworks inside the application package, but that didn't work, possibly because I did it incorrectly, and possibly because the binary was built incorrectly.

Version 0.23.7 fixes the crash-on-launch issue I was experiencing. The framework builds are also correct this time around, so the total package size is only around 13 MB uncompressed. Thanks, Watanabe-san.

Awesome game. I love it. Now if you can change the HUD so I can read it, that would be nice. I hope u keep working on it.

You can access command line options by running the game from the command line. Open a terminal and try something like:

/Applications/rr.app/Contents/MacOS/rr -hires -nosound

Great game. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any way to access the command line options, which is a shame because I'd like to run this without sound and in windowed mode.

Looks like this option is now available if you invoke rr from the command line:

Applications/rr.app/Contents/MacOS/rr -window

See the developer's page for other flags.

Oops - copy and paste error - you need the leading slash, of course:

/Applications/rr.app/Contents/MacOS/rr -window -hires

Hi-res is nice, too.

Fantastic finger twitching shooter. I have been using this as a warmup for Ikaruga on the Game Cube. Using 10.2.6 on a 500mhz G3 Pismo PB.
