"Space Tripper" Coming to Mac OS
2:14 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Aaron Fothergill of Strange Flavour took time out from his work on Bushfire and the mysterious AirBurst to let us know that PC shareware house PomPom is porting their shoot-em-up Space Tripper to the Mac OS. This OpenGL-based side scroller seems to have quite snazzy visuals and features, and we can't wait to see it in action. Here is a description from the PomPom web site:

Space tripper is a truly modern arcade shoot-em-up, combining the manic
gameplay of classics such as defender, with a stunning state of the art 3D
engine. Everything you would expect is here : Loads of enemies, big bosses,
power-ups and a sore trigger finger!! The gameplay is simple : Fly your
spacecraft over enemy platforms, blasting everything in your path. Once each
level has been cleared of all enemies, then you can progress to the next
stage. Simple? ....then try it and see! Be warned. This is one seriously
tough shoot-em-up.
Aaron indicated that the game is currently playable, but there is no firm release date. On the PC side the game is only $12.00 shareware, and we expect that distribution method to continue for Mac gamers. Watch for more news on this title soon, and be sure to visit the PomPom and Strange Flavor web sites for more details.
