[needs-packaging] Word War vi
Status in Ubuntu:
Status in Debian GNU/Linux:
Please consider packaging Word War vi.
"Word War vi is your basic side-scrolling shoot 'em up '80s style
arcade game. You pilot your "vi"per craft through core memory,
rescuing lost .swp files, avoiding OS defenses, and wiping out those
memory hogging emacs processes. When all the lost .swp files are
rescued, head for the socket which will take you to the next node in
You might notice some similarity to Defender or Stargate, and perhaps
Scramble, or maybe Rescue Raiders, and if you liked those games,
you're apt to like this game. There are plenty of differences from
those games as well though, some might say it's really "neo-retro,"
rather than purely retro.
