SuperTux for OS X
9:10 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

A forum user by the name of kootenay has announced the availability of a preliminary build of SuperTux for OS X. An open source project, SuperTux models itself after classic 2D run-and-jump titles, featuring a penguin that must navigate various hazards.

Among other things, kootenay requests that folks test out and provide feedback on the current build:

Since I don't have any other Macs for testing the OS X package, I'd appreciate getting some feedback to see if it runs okay. Since I compiled this on Panther (gcc 3.3), I have no idea whether it runs on Jaguar systems or earlier. I am aware of an issue in OpenGL windowed mode, where mouse movement is reversed along the vertical axis (this seems to be a bug with the SDL libraries) - OpenGL fullscreen mode should work fine.
