[Bug 304024] [NEW] [needs-packaging] Word War vi


You have been subscribed to a public bug by Jeff (galacticowboy):

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 the cluster.

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.
