Welcome to Tuxigloo!
NewsI am currently redesigning the game. The communication between the server and the client will be much lighter. I will use SDL for the graphics routines, thus it will run under both Un*x and Windows. I will put a beta version to download on this page in a couple of months.
AbstractOn icebergs, some big webfooted birds are trying to find their way home in order not to be eaten by the evil bears.
Characters and itemsThe pengouin : He is naughty, he gives beer to the bears to make them drunk, so he can escape from them.
The bear is very good to relieve the world of the stupid penguins, if only he does not like so much beer.
The otary : He helps the penguins which offer him a glass of beer. For example, he can bring 20 penguins to an igloo, or send some bears to the other igloos.
The Igloo is the place where every penguins have to go if they want not to be eaten by the bears. If a bear get in the igloo then it eats the third of the penguins which are in.
Arrows : The penguins and the bears are so drunk that they cannot find their way to the igloos. They must be guided by arrows put on the floor.
GoalTuxigloo is a multi-player game. Every players has got an igloo. The goal of the game is to get the more penguins you can in your igloo and to send the bears to the other igloos.
Tuxigloo has been successfully tested on Linux, FreeBSD and HP-UX.
