OpenTyrian is a port of the DOS shoot-em-up Tyrian. Jason Emery generously gave the OpenTyrian developers a copy of the Tyrian 2.1 source code, which has since been ported from Turbo Pascal to C. The port uses SDL, making it easily cross-platform.
Original game was developed by World Tree Games Productions and published in 1995 by Epic MegaGames.
Tyrian is an arcade-style vertical scrolling shooter. The story is set in 20,031 where you play as Trent Hawkins, a skilled fighter-pilot employed to fight Microsol and save the galaxy.
In the zip there is a folder with the 3dsx, smdh and the xml (for target title selection) files inside, to be used with a Homebrew Launcher, and a CIA file to be installed with FBI.
For the CIA build you will also need a DSP dump on your SD card.
This is a one-time process and is needed for all homebrew CIAs that use DSP audio.
The game creates a OpenTyrian subfolder inside the 3ds folder if doesn't exist. Here will be stored the gamesave.
