Un shooter spatial à défilement vertical inspiré du jeu "Raptor : Call of the Shadows", par la Chromium B.S.U. Team (auteur : Mark B. Allan + contributeurs).

Jeu de tir spatial avec défilement du décor et à cadence rapide, du type arcade

Chromium est jeu de tir spatial avec défilement du décor et vue de dessus, à cadence rapide et avec beaucoup d’action.

Dans ce jeu, vous êtes le capitaine du vaisseau de transport Chromium B.S.U., et vous êtes responsable de l’acheminement de vivres pour des troupes sur la ligne de front. Votre vaisseau a une petite flotte de robots soldats que vous contrôlez dans la relative sécurité de votre vaisseau.

📕 Description [en]

Chromium B.S.U. is a fast paced, arcade-style, top-scrolling space shooter.

You are captain of the cargo ship Chromium B.S.U., responsible for delivering supplies to our troops on the front line. Your ship has a small fleet of robotic fighters which you control from the relative safety of the Chromium B.S.U. vessel.

• Do not let ANY enemy ships get past your fighters! Each enemy ship that makes it past the bottom of the screen will attack the Chromium B.S.U., and you lose a fighter.
• Use your fighters as weapons! Crash into enemies to destroy them before they can get past you.
• Strategic suicide is a powerful tactic! When the Chromium B.S.U. launches a new fighter, it releases a high energy burst which destroys all enemies in range.
• Self-destruct to preserve your ammunition! A double-right-click will cause your current fighter to self-destruct. Before the ship blows up, it ejects its ammunition so that the next fighter can pick it up.

History

In early July 2000, I noticed an announcement on LinuxGames for a Linux port of an old DOS top scrolling shooter called Raptor from Mountain King Studios. I used to love these kinds of games back in the 80's, so I downloaded it and checked it out. Raptor was fun, but the mouse control felt sluggish and although the graphics have a nice retro feel, they look pretty chunky on a 21" monitor.

• So, I began to wonder how hard it would be to write a similar type of game using OpenGL. I had been wanting to experiment with SDL and OpenAL for a while, and this seemed like a good opportunity. I figured that I could knock out a quick prototype in a weekend or two just for the coding experience.

• But, it turned out to be a lot of fun to work on, and the two weeks turned into two months. I'm not sure how much more work I'll put into Chromium because I want to get back to some other projects, but I'll probably make improvements from time to time.

fast paced, arcade-style, scrolling space shooter

Chromium is a top down fast paced high action scrolling space shooter.

In this game you are the captain of the cargo ship Chromium B.S.U. and are responsible for delivering supplies to the troops on the front line. Your ship has a small fleet of robotic fighters which you control from the relative safety of the Chromium vessel.


🌍️ Wikipedia:

Chromium B.S.U. is an arcade-style, top-scrolling space shooter available on Windows, iPhone, PSP, Mac, AmigaOS 4, Linux and numerous other UNIX-like operating systems. It is a free software distributed under the Clarified Artistic License.

The original version of Chromium B.S.U. was designed in 2000 by Mark B. Allan and released under the Artistic License. Since then it has received the contribution of numerous people in the open source community. The gameplay is based on a player who plays the role of hero, shooting their way through a barrage of enemy forces. The game is similar to 2D top-scrolling space shooters played in arcades.

Overview

The storyline of Chromium B.S.U. consists of the player taking the role of a captain aboard a cargo ship. The name of the cargo ship is Chromium B.S.U. The player is given the task of delivering cargo to troops on the front line. The cargo ship has aboard a series of robotic fighter spaceships. Your job is to make use of these ships to ensure that the cargo ship makes it to the front line.

Due to Chromium B.S.U. being free software this project is still alive. Recently maintenance has increasingly resumed under the direction of new maintainers.

Gameplay

Players are expected to shoot enemy aircraft in order to ensure that the enemy aircraft do not reach the bottom of the screen. For every aircraft that reaches the bottom of the screen the player will lose a life. This particular rule makes Chromium B.S.U. unique amongst the usual scrolling space shooters and adds a new degree of difficulty to the genre. Another aspect of the game that makes winning difficult is the lack of ammunition. Ammunition must be utilized efficiently in order to win.

When a player is having difficulty destroying foes the player has two options. They can crash into enemy vessels and deal damage to the ship as well as themselves. The other alternative is to self-destruct, thereby destroying all the enemies on the screen.

In the first level of the game there are only three types of enemy ships. More enemy ships are introduced to the player as they advanced through levels. The game was designed to be played on short time intervals as a quick relief. Long hours of dedication is not the goal of the project. However, due to the addictive nature of the game many players play the game in this manner.

🔍️ Test [fr]

🕵️ Test (pré 0.9.14.1) :
Une interface de qualité, un graphisme soigné accompagné de nombreux effets OpenGL, des effets sonores et une bande son.
Le jeu s'avère nettement plus facile à jouer à la souris qu'au clavier (les mouvements avec ce dernier sont trop lents et saccadés).
Les mouvements du vaisseau à la souris ne sont pas très réalistes (le vaisseau se comporte comme un curseur de souris), c'est dommage.
Pas mal.
