DARKWAR M 2.4.2023
DarkwarM (Darkwar magnetic) is a 2D space-shooting game for
one, two or three players. The first player uses the mouse,
the second player the cursor keys and the third player
the keys s, y, x and c to move his spacecraft. With a
mouseclick, RETURN or the key a the players activate or
deactivate a magnet. If the magnet is activated and the
magnets coming from the upper side of the gamefield aren't
already moving to a nearer and activated magnet, they move
towards the players' spacecraft. If they hit an enemies'
spacecraft, it is eliminated. The players must destroy
100 spacecrafts without collision with magnets, spacecrafts
of the enemies or cannonballs of the enemies to win the game.
Aliases of the steering keys can be defined in the
dialog displayed first. If you only click "apply", you
can use the key "z" as alias for the key "y", which makes
sense for the US keyboard layout.
You can use ESC to quit the game.
