The most thrilling vertical scrolling shooter on the market! DemonStar takes shooters to the extreme with Multiplayer/Network capabilities, Force Feedback joystick support, 3-D rendered graphics, explosive sound effects, and a brilliant soundtrack. Do you want fast-paced, reflex-jerking, edge-of-your-seat action? DemonStar is all of these and more! To destroy each boss, you will have to search for the many weapons such as lasers, homing missiles, and many more. As you maneuver your way through each of the 18 progressive levels, you can build up an arsenal worthy of a match against the greatest mega-boss of all time: THE DEMONSTAR.
This is the registered version.
Installs fine. The game plays fine, no graphical problems whatsover. Choosing to play with keyboard works fine. Sound effects work. Must use the ALSA driver for any sound output.
What does not
Choosing to play with mouse does not work, it will freeze the game. Choosing joystick in the game config and hitting okay also freezes the game. Also, if you choose the remap buttons button and try to map joystick buttons, it will say "joystick not found." Although sound effects work, there is no music. Using anything besides ALSA will not work, I have tested OSS, JACK, and NAS. Choosing the 2x windows mode makes the game play slow. Multiplayer does not work, ie, the create game and join game menu options both freeze the game.
What was not tested
Though I have played through a lot of levels, I have not tested every single one, though by the looks of it there should be absolutely no problem.
Even though my I chose KANOTIX 2005-04 as my distro, I have dist-upgraded it to the latest debian/unstable.
