MacMoorhuhn Shooting Game Released
4:51 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
Rene Trost, best known for his system benchmark ThroughPut, has completed a port of Moorhuhn, a Duck Hunt-like (if you remember from the days of NES) shooting game. In Moorhuhn, you are given a minute and a half to shoot down as many chickens as possible, all while avoiding planes and hot air balloons. And yes, these chickens fly!
Moorhuhn was written in 100% PowerPC assembler and features 6-layer
parallax scrolling graphics and 3D sound. The game requires a PPC
with 32 MB RAM, MacOS 8.6 and DrawSprocket 1.7.3 or later to run. In Germany, the game has been downloaded over 5000 times in three days.
