Overview

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!

This game distills the boss levels of top-down scrolling action games down to their bare, abstract essence. It's hynoptic and psychedelic, and really cool.

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.

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.

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.

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.

this game rocks. its a vertical one-screen shooter in which you have to destroy increasingly tougher bosses whilst dodging a huge amount of enemy fire. the graphics are slick as anything and manage to update the retro vector based games into the opengl age. the music is very very good, especially considering that this is a free game. one thing that i would like to see is a flip mode to horizontal so that i could make better use of my widescreen monitor.
