Darkworld Exploder is a space shooting game, where your bombs must explode near the enemy's spacecrafts, and you must avoid hitting the enemy's bombs. There are Darkworld versions for one and two players and there are Darkwar versions for one, two and three players. The players use the mouse, cursor keys and RETURN and s, y, x, c and a. If you apply the keyboard map for the US at the startup dialog, you can also type z instead of y. Every gaming mode exists in two versions: constant bomb explosion delay or the bomb explodes later, if the mouse or key was down longer. There is a maximum (500) and a mininum (50) of milliseconds for holding the fire button or key. If you hold a key 1000 milliseconds, the value 500 is used for the bomb explosion delay. You can use ESC to quit the game. You need 25 destroyed enemies is the Darkworld versions and 100 destroyed enemies in the easier playable Darkwar versions to win the game.
