Maelstrom 3


Maelstrom 3.0 is a GPL port of the original shareware game for the Macintosh. It is alot like Asteroids but with colorful explosions and very good sound effects. You earn points buy shooting asteroids and other pleasant surprises which pop up such as flying saucers. It runs in either a 640x480 window or full screen at the same resolution using command line switches.

A couple of the features which sets this apart from other Asteroids types of games include the addons. These are additional sprite/sound packs, including Star Trek, Star Wars and sounds from the Three Stooges and Beavis n Butthead. You can turn your space craft into the USS Enterprise and listen to Captain kirk. If you have access to a classic Mac (or emulator) you can even create your own sounds sets and sprites. It is also possible to play a multiplayer networking game but I have not tried this.

Game Control Keys::
Fire = Tab
Thrust = Up Arrow
Shield = Space
Turn Clockwise - Right Arrow
Turn Counter-Clockwise
Pause = Pause
Esc = Abort Game

Joystick is optional
Button 1 = Fire
Button 2 = Shield

Two of the command line otions which might be useful to you include:
Maelstrom.exe -gamma [0-8] (The higher the gamma correction, the brighter Maelstrom will appear on your monitor. Once this option is used, the gamma correction level is saved, and this option doesnt need to be used again.)

Maelstrom.exe -fullscreen (This option puts Maelstrom into a 640x480 full screen.)

This is a very good game by itself but installing the additional sprite/sound packs makes it much more enjoyable to play.
