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.
