Thrustoids0.2.1

20 November 2003

3D space-shooter game.

Overview

Note: Thrustoids is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

Thrustoids is a 3D space-shooter arcade game. This is the second release available to the public. There are no known bugs and should not in any way harm your computer or data, it is called a beta simply because the gameplay is not finished. I welcome bug reports and suggestions, please email me.

What's new in Thrustoids

Version 0.2.1:
  • Fixes texture problems in Panther
  • Pause with the 'p' key
  • You can take screenshots with the '-' (minus) key. It will save a .tga image file to your desktop named LBScreenshot_[number].tga. You can open this with Preview and save it to any format you like.
  • New ship models and textures.
  • Minor bug fixes.
  • Console mode, hit '~' to bring up the console. E.g. type set level 12 to change the current level to 12.
  • Power-ups: glowing balls floating in the grid represent power-ups. Green boosts weapon energy, red boosts fuel, and blue boosts shield power.

Pretty cool. Good graphics. Decent gameplay. But repetitive and way too hard to pick up powerups. Maybe it's just me, but couldn't fly into those tiny little balls.

really like this games simplicity. However, i find that getting the power ups is usually much more trouble than its worth.

To follow up the comment by 'Quick', I too simply get a blank screen, and indeed I had to do a hard reset to be able to use my Mac again. My system is an iMac DV400 with 576mb of RAM and OSX 10.2.8. Cheers.

Thanks for the reviews. If you wouldn't mind, please post you system specs so I can determine minimum requirements / why it won't work on some systems. It's been tested on an iBook w/ 256 megs RAM and 8 megs VRAM, and it ran, albeit very slowly. Runs great on my 800 Ti (1gig RAM).

After startup, all I get is a pitch black screen. This app needs some refinement. And it definately IS in beta stage.

Has potential. As it stand, a fairly good way to burn a few minutes. Reminds me a great deal of Parsec (http://openparsec.sourceforge.net/), which might be an open source project of interest to the author.

Once it has powerups and an option to turn the music off, I'll call this a great game. I love games that require you to redefine "down" every time you move. Keep the download size small like it is now if possible. That'll broaden your range of users by a longshot. Me, for example. I've got dialup internet.
