    UberTube - What happened to that game?

    Some years back I remember downloading a free game called UberTube, which I quite enjoyed.

    There are multiple (old) threads in these forums about it. I think ' Early Christmas Present - Ubertube2 ' is the most recent one.

    I would contact the original author directly by PM, but since my account is new I can't. Anyway, since the original website/download links do not work I was wondering if anybody had the latest version of this game somewhere so that I could get a hold of it somehow (email, uploading to public webspace perhaps)?

    Seems strange/a shame that it's not available anymore. I have no idea why I didn't keep a copy of it. Don't seem to be many references to it around the web either, except a Flash version which is not as good as the C++ one.

    I can't find the source code at the moment, but I did find a copy of the EXE for it, so that's something. The website is down so high scores don't function but it's playable

    If I manage to find the source code, I'll set it up on google project hosting or something.

    Thanks for the message, huge blast from the past, and I'm glad someone remembers the game even today

    Thanks for uploading it again, it's a neat little game. I got reminded of it recently and was surprised when I couldn't find it anywhere, so I thought I should ask what happened.

    The Flash version is nicely polished and plays well, but it's somewhat different in gameplay - I really liked the SkyRoads games and anything similar in concept. (For those who might not have heard of SkyRoads, you can get the games for free from their original creators at this link: SkyRoads - they can be run in the DOSBox emulator.)

    Fun Fact: The flash version is actually very similar to the first version of UberTube I wrote (in C++/GL), while this second version is probably the better game.

    Also funny you mention SkyRoads, obviously it was at least a small part of my inspiration for this. I'm currently working on reverse engineering its file format, as I want to create an HTML5 port of the game.
