RocketTux

Testing an early build…

RocketTux is an open source HTML/JavaScript based game that I have been developing for a while. The graphics are based on those used in SuperTux, but the game play is unique. As of November 2017, I have completed the systems for generating randomized levels, coin collection, power ups, and some enemies. So, it’s complete enough at this point to be a simple “collect all the coins” game.

I should have been working on it more, as I had planned to have it completed by February 2018, but I have been doing other things and I don’t think I will be able to hit that deadline now. At least not for a feature complete, polished game.

You can follow the development of RocketTux on Github and through my development notes and screenshots in my Google Drive.

Here is a video that demonstrates how to play the game…

RocketTux will be likely finished some time in 2018, at which point I will package it for easy use in Linux and Windows.
