    LOOK! (O O) My First wxWidgets Application

    Hi everyone!

    I've been playing with wxWidgets, an open source C++ framework for creating cross-platform applications. Here is my first ever wxWidget application, and the first game I have written since...erm...1984 (ish). It is my own reincarnation of a 1979 classic. May bring a dewy eye tear of nostalgia to some. Released under GPL.

    You can get the source & a standalone Windows exe here. It was created using Dev-C.

    Still needs a little work. I haven't got sounds to work yet. Comments, criticisms & feedback appreciated.

    Here's a screenie:

    Hey Andy,

    nice little remake, keep up the good work.


    I *nearly* complained that the music and sound wasn't working, but then I actually read what you wrote.

    It does run very slow however, but i like it nonetheless.

    Thanks for the reply.

    >It does run very slow however...

    It's not a performance issue. It is simply the case that I have set the game clock too slow for most peoples' liking.

    I plan on a second release in the near future. Will add sound and speed things up a little.

    Yeah, I figured.

    Keep us updated!

    The source files have dates from 2004-2006.

    Have you been working on this game for 2 years or something?

    I started it around 2004, but never finished it.
