scavenger - a plattform game for X
is like Lode Runner. You've got to run around gathering objects
while avoiding enemies. You can dig down through some of the blocks to get at
buried objects. After you've collected everything, ladders may appear. To
finish the level you've got to exit through the top of the screen. If an enemy
falls into a dug brick, he is stunned for a while. If the brick fills in with
him in it, he is killed, and he will reappear at the top of the screen.
This version has a level editor for designing your own levels, and a graphics
editor for drawing your own artwork.
This command has no options.
The default control is with the number pad keys 4-9:
Dig left Move up Dig right
7 8 9
4 5 6
Move left Move down Move right
As of version 1.3 you can remap the controls. In demo mode hit space to get to
the menu, then hit F10 to remap the keys. For each key if you hit escape the
key is unchanged.
F8 Skip to next level k Kill player (useful if he's trapped) ESC Exit back to
demo mode Pause Pause game
