LICENSE AGREEMENT & LEGAL BABLE

From the original author of xrick:

I have written the xrick code. However, graphics and maps and sounds are by the authors of the original Rick Dangerous game, and "Rick Dangerous" remains a trademark of its owner(s) -- maybe Core Design (who wrote the game) or FireBird (who published it). As of today, I have not been successful at contacting Core Design.

This makes it a bit difficult to formally release the whole code, including data for graphics and maps and sounds, under the terms of licences such as the GNU General Public Licence. So the code is released "in the spirit" of the GNU GPL. Whatever that means.

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

HOWTO

Controls:

  • left, right, up (jump) or down (crawl): arrow keys.
  • fire: SPACE, pause: P.
  • use left, right, up, down + fire to poke something with your stick, lay a stick of dynamite, or fire a bullet.

Enjoy!
