airstrike — 2d dogfight game in the tradition of 'Biplanes' and 'BIP'
Airstrike is a 2d biplane dogfight game in the tradition of the Intellivision and Amiga games 'Biplanes' and 'BIP'. It features a robust physics engine and several other extensions of the original games.
Airstrike reads all the configuration options from a configuration file at startup but you can override from command line a few of the options:
- Runs the game in fullscreen mode.
- Runs game with sound effects, if support for that has been compiled in.
- Runs the game without sound.
- Game graphics will not be antialiased. This makes it run faster.
- Game graphics will be antialiased.
- --config CONFIGFILE
- Use given configuration file instead of the one which location is compiled into Airstrike.
Configuration file name is '.airstrikerc' and it's located in your home directory.
Airstrike is controlled from keyboard:
- Plane nose goes up.
- Plane nose goes down.
- Drop a bomb.
Pause game and open game options menu. From menu you can change
options, view release notes and quit it.
