Super Transball 2 - Port By: Neobomb

Super Transball 2 is an enhanced version of TRANSBALL 2, which is the sequel of TRANSBALL, a remake of the classic THRUST game (but mainly inspired in ZARA THRUSTA for the Commodore Amiga 500).

The game has many levels, in each level the goal is to find the white sphere, and carry it to the upper part of the screen. This may seem easy at the begining, but as the levels become more and more complicated, to reach the top of the screen can be extremely difficult... To move through a the levels, you command a ship, that is atracted by the gravity of the planet. As if this wasn't enough, you will find enemies that fire you, doors and many other difficulties on your way...

You can choose between 3 possible ships:

  • the SHADOW RUNNER: extremely fast, and with microprocessors. But with very powerful weapons. This is not a ship for beginners, but is very good ship when you can control it!
  • the V-PANTHER 2: the easiest to control ship. Medium speed, and medium weapons.
  • the X-TERMINATOR: really slow (and easy to control), but has very powerful weapons. Thetactic you must follow with this ship is: as I cannot evade your bullets, I'LL KILL YOU!!

Depending on the type of your gameplay, you could find one ship better than another, but in principle there's no ship better than the other two.

To learn how to play, just wait for 5-10 seconds in the tittle screen, and some demos will appear. The replaysof all the levels you play are saved. After you dye of finidh the game, go to the REPLAY section, and you will find all your games saved as "AUTOREPLAY???.RPL", just rename those that you want to keep, all the no-renamed replays will be deleted automatically the next time you play the game... Ah! If you think you are better player than me, just send me your replay files!!!! ;)

This game has been developed using Visual C++ 6.0 and the SDL library (with SDL_image, SDL_mixer and SDL_sge). If you want the sources, just e-mail me and I will send them to you! Also e-mail me for any suggestion, bug, etc.

So... HAPPY GRAVITATION!!!
