Late info



I only package source tarballs so you are going to have to compile them yourself. If you are new to linux that means that you are going to need the development packages that come with your distro.

To install, make sure you have SDL and SDL_image installed first, if not, you can get them from: and Respectivly

Unpack the tarball with

$ tar -xjf late.tar.bz2

Enter the source directory:

$ cd late

Then build and install with:

$ ./configure $ make $ make install

Then run it by typing:

$ late

Your mouse is controls a sophisticated tool against evil: basically a fancy fancy tube. This is your weapon, a savage gillotine that cuts up wallpaper with not a shred of hesitation nor remorse. It has but one weakness, it can only withstand a few impacts with balls....

But fortunantly for you, the evil, heartless little balls also have a weakness, they can only travel across the original terrain and may be locked up tight by its removal.

And lock them up tight you must, for the only way to exact vengance from these ricocheting feinds is to choke them out of existance. Your gillotine is sharp and quick, it may be shot out using the left button, and its orientation may be changed in ninety degree increments with the right, but once you fire, there is no way to stop its cutting and razing until it has made its cut, or been struck.

The balls, in their spherical cunning have developed many tricks beyond just the contemptable bounce tactics of the simple fireball, there are balls made from goo that divide and disperse when hit and can reform in an effort to confuse their prey. There are unstable groups of three balls that will spontaniously explode when encapsulated tight enough. There are balls that will teleport for suprise tactics. And even cold blooded balls that will be towards the cutters whenever they are seen.

You must fight these crewl balls, and you must prevail!
