Description

Magic Maze is a simple and low-tech monster-bashing maze game.

It was originally inspired by playing Gauntlet II on the Atari ST.

Requirements

Installing

Linux

Latest Ubuntu Linux (9.04) has Debian package for Magic Maze. To install, just run: sudo apt-get install magicmaze

OLPC XO laptop quick start

There are ready-made XO files available in the download section for the XO laptop. Download and run sugar-install-bundle on it, or unzip into your Activities directory. For more OLPC information, check the Wiki page for Magic Maze on XO.

Windows quick start

Really quick, but dirty: go to the win32 releases and download a pre-packaged executable. (Executable created using rubyscript2exe.rb)

If you wish to get the latest source releases running, download the complete Ruby, SDL and RubySDL pack from ohai's page.

Source code

Since this is all Ruby, the source code is available in the regular downloads. But you can also access the CVS repository where you can check out the modules magicmaze, webdocs and olpc-xo to play with the bleeding edge.
