Ashima IV

By Tristam MacDonald


Developer:
Tristam MacDonald
Genre:
Action
Requirements:
Mac OS X 10.5+ (or Python 2.5+), Intel X3100 or better

A concept for a 3D space-combat simulator, in the tradition of Descent Freespace and Vegastrike: destroy enemy fighter craft and capital ships before you also are destroyed. Due to poor planning and an unfortunate combination of circumstances, I wasn’t able to start development until the last week of January. Obviously it doesn’t include all the features I would have liked, nor is it as polished, but the core game is definitely playable. I haven’t been able to test this on a wide range of hardware, but it runs perfectly on a MacBook (white), a MacBook Pro (rev A), and a Mac Pro. Let me know if you have issues on other hardware.
