ZSC (Zaurus Star Castle) officially released!

Version 1.4.1 of ZSC (Zaurus Star Castle), the first ‘official’ release,
is now available in “.ipk” form for the Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 PDA.

It’s based on the X-Window game “XSC” (X Star Castle) version 1.4 by
Mark B. Hanson. It’s been ported to SDL, sound effects have been added,
and it was shrunk and tweaked to fit on a PDA screen.

.ipk download for Sharp Zaurus (and ARM-based iPaqs running Linux and Qtopia),
sourcecode (again, simply a hack on top of XSC 1.4), the README, and
a screenshot are all available here:


The original XSC for X-Window is at Mark’s website:


I hope eventually my code and the ‘embedded’ target can be incorporated
into the main XSC codebase…
