DESCRIPTION

SuperTux is a classic style 2D platform game. Run and jump through multiple worlds, fighting off enemies by jumping on them, bumping them from below or tossing objects at them, grabbing power-ups and other stuff on the way.

ENVIRONMENT

SUPERTUX_LANG

FILES

~/.supertux2
Contains configuration and savegames. Also acts as an overlay of the SuperTux game data path: Files placed here, as well as contents of Zip archives in this directory, will override or supplement game data files.

EXAMPLES

To play level /tmp/mylevel.stl in a window of size 800x600, run the program like this:
supertux2 --window --geometry 800x600 /tmp/mylevel.stl
To play a previously recorded demo /tmp/mylevel.demo of level /tmp/mylevel.stl, run SuperTux like this:
supertux2 --play-demo /tmp/mylevel.demo /tmp/mylevel.stl
Custom-made levels can be conveniently stored in the overlay data folder.
~/.supertux2/levels/sample_collection/level01.stl
(supertux-level
  (version 2)
  (name (_ "Sample Level"))
  (author "Myself")
  ...
    
Make sure to also create an "info" file, so the collection will be recognized by SuperTux.
~/.supertux2/levels/sample_collection/info
;SuperTux-Level-Subset
(supertux-level-subset
  (title "Sample Collection")
  (description "")
)
    
For easier distribution, the level collection can be bundled in a Zip archive.
~/.supertux2/sample_collection.zip
levels/sample_collection/info
levels/sample_collection/level01.stl
 ...
    

BUGS

This is a development version, so expect plenty of bugs.
