Solarwolf is an action/arcade game written entirely in Python,
featuring attractive graphics and cool music.
It is is originally based on the SolarFox game from the Atari 2600.
The objective of the game is to scramble through 60 levels
collecting space boxes and dodging bullets. Each level gets is harder
than the previous. Obstacles like bullets, mines, and asteroids cover
your every move. Beat the Skip
timer and grab the powerups for your only chance.
As the game goes on, more challenges emerge. The enemies fire
more rapidly, obstacles such as asteroids and spike mines appear
(colliding with either costs the player a ship), as well as the
introduction of yellow blocks (which require two passes to collect) and
(requiring three passes). Later in the game, a hidden spike mine may
emerge from any yellow or red block.
