ICE

Introduction

ICE is a vertical shoot-em-up in tradition of Raptor and Tyrian with vector style graphics written in the D programming language.

ICE is still in very early development and might see large changes. Note that ICE requires OpenGL 2.1 to run; all modern PC graphics cards support this but some older netbook Intel integrated graphics do not.

Gameplay

You move your ship around the screen, shooting attacking enemies. A basic weapon allows you to shoot forward while, over the course of the campaign, you get more weapons that can be used only once in a while, taking time to recharge (currently, these are always enabled; the gradual ship improvements are not yet implemented).

Each weapon is designed to require a bit of skill and timing as opposed to just being a bigger, more powerful gun.

Controls

W, Up Move up
A, Left Move left
S, Down Move down
D, Right Move right
Space, NumPad 5 Fire weapon 1.
J, NumPad 4 Fire weapon 2.
K, NumPad 2 Fire weapon 3.
Scroll Lock Take screenshot (in ~/.ice/main/screenshots/ if installed, or user_data/main/screenshots/ in the game directory)
Escape Exit the game while playing.

Directory structure

Directory Description
./ This README file, utility scripts, source code outside of any packages.
./data Main game data directory, contains data that is never modified.
./user_data User game data directory, contains modifiable data such as screenshots, etc.
./dependencies Source code of libraries ICE depends on.
./doc Documentation.
./docsrc Documentation source code.
./xxx Other directories: ICE source code.

Dependencies

ICE is written in D, so for compilation it requires a D compiler such as DMD. Currently, only DMD is supported; GDC will be supported once it becomes a part of GCC. Due to linker problems, only DMD 2.058 works on Windows; this should change in future.

ICE depends on Derelict, D:GameVFS and D:YAML, which are included for convenience. SDL 1.2, SDL-Mixer, FreeType and OpenGL are required through Derelict.

Installing
