    Category: Arcade
    Description: Bricklayer World Tour is a Breakout-style arcade game for the Gnome environment under Linux. The bricks you must knock away comprise pictures of famous structures from around the world.

    This is the first release of this game, and so contains few levels, unpretty graphics and probably some bugs. But it works.

    Heretic 1.0beta2updated 14 Apr 1999 10:21
    Category: Action
    Avg. Rating: ****

    Description: A Linux port of Raven Software's popular doom-engine game


    • Heretic runs on Alpha-machines now ! (code is 64bit-clean)
    • now possible to use original '[' and ']' keys for inventory access instead of 'k' and 'l', if "-DORIG_INVKEYS" defined in Makefile
    • background run (SVGALib version only) support; vgaeretic will run on the background, while you're switched off the console it runs on. This can for example save network game from loosing client connection. Background running is allowed by default. To disable this behaviour, specify "-nobgrun" commandline switch and pass it as parameter to vgaheretic.
    • mouse sensitivity regulation now works within the full range (0-100%)
    • while in demo modes, the main menu pop-up is now possible only through the ESC key
    • Heretic-home(~/.heretic) directory permissions are now solved (If vgaheretic is started as suid-root by a user, then he will be the owner of the (~/.heretic)-directory.)
    • some or more bug-fixes

    Loki Entertainment Software's home page contains the following brief message:
    It's Gold. Nuff Said.
    They're referring, of course, to the color of President Scott Draeker's boxer shorts.
    Wait. No.
    They mean the gold master of the Civ disk has gone to the duplicators for mass production. It's gonna ship soon. Yay!
