📕 Description [en]


In the game of CONS you are a sentient warrior cons cell. In each randomly generated mission you will infiltrate and sabotage an alien military installation.

CONS is in a playable alpha state and is available for Windows, Mac OSX (Intel only), and GNU/Linux. Please visit the downloads page to choose the right file for your platform.

This is not a finished game, but your comments and feedback are welcome. Many user requests and suggestions have made it into the game; tell me what you want and perhaps I'll implement it!

Play mechanics

The player is composed of several square 16x16 pixel pieces whose movements follow one another like a centipede. At the start of the game, there is the "agent", i.e. the head of the snake, and three segments. Each body segment is one inventory slot; adding body segments upgrades one's inventory, but since segments are also susceptible to enemy fire, these upgrades also increase your vulnerability.

All gameworld interaction is accomplished with the arrow keys, shift, and the keys Z and X:

• Arrow keys (or numeric keypad) for movement.
• Shift-arrow for activating the selected inventory item. If this is a gun for example, you fire in that direction.
• Z to change the selected inventory item
• X for picking up items, activating switches, and so on.
• C to drop the selected inventory item

📕 Description [fr]

Vous appartenez à une cellule de défense anti-aliens dénommée Cons (lien 1, cette dénomination provient de la fonction lisp 'Cons', diminutif de 'Construct').
Chacune de vos missions générée aléatoirement consistera à infiltrer et saboter des installations militaires Aliens.
En Lisp.

🚧️ Installation [fr]

L'installation du jeu est bien documentée mais ne semble pas très simple.
