Kobo Deluxe

Kobo Deluxe

Kobo Deluxe is a third person scrolling 2D shooter with a simple and responsive control system - which you will need to tackle the tons of enemy ships that shoot at you, chase you, circle around you shooting, or even launch other ships at you, while you are trying to destroy the labyrinth shaped bases.

Kobo Deluxe is an enhanced version of Akira Higuchi's game XKobo. XKobo itself is a descendant of Namco's old 'Bosconian', which can be considered as part of the 'Galaxian'/'Galaga' family of space shooters.

Kobo Deluxe has an improved graphics engine that delivers smoother animation, while keeping the game logic totally accurate and predictable regardless of frame rate. It also adds sound effects, new graphics, fullscreen mode, four extra skill levels with smoother gameplay and various other features expected from a modern game. (There is still a "Classic" mode that plays exactly like the original XKobo.)

There are 50 action packed levels with smoothly increasing difficulty, and different combinations of enemies that require different tactics to be dealt with successfully. It offers loads of classical arcade style fun.

Kobo Deluxe uses SDL for sound, graphics and input. It can also use OpenGL for accelerated rendering through glSDL.
