Space Tripper Updated for OS X
9:12 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Independent UK game maker PomPom has released a 1.6 update to the Mac version of their very popular shareware title Space Tripper, adding fixes for a number of issues as well as support for Mac OS X. In case you haven't tried out the game's demo yet, Space Tripper is a very impressive 3D take on the classic arcade game Defender. Its gameplay is simple, but the graphics are amazing and now run on OS X.
Here's a clip from the ReadMe which runs down the changes in version 1.6:
MAC UPDATEThere is both an updated application from version 1.5 and a full 1.6 download available now at MacGameFiles. If you haven't already tried out the demo, be sure to do so now. PomPom's site has more information on the game, as well as details on ordering the registered version for $12.
Runs in OS X...
If you can't see the menus, radar, etc, please add the following line to the end of config.cfg in the run directory (or change the value if it is already there)
If the game is stuttering, please add the following line to the end of config.cfg in the run directory (or change the value if it is already there)
A new camera view available in the Game Options menu. This gives the option to play the game in a vertical side view mode. (Trickier...)
Unlimited continues available in the Game Options menu. (In game this will also reset your current score.) Alternate controls available in the Game Options menu. (This allows you to use fire and flip craft or fire left and fire right.)
