scavenger - a plattform game for X
Scavenger 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
