The old website used to be www.slingshot-game.org Slingshot was unmaintained by 2008 and the old website had disappeared by 2008/2009. It was later extended in 2009 by Marcus Dreier <firstname.lastname@example.org>. He: - Added network support - Fixed crashing when pressing cursors at welcome and help screen - Added fine adjustments for all keyboard bindings (shift, ctrl, alt) - Replaced the deprecated range function with xrange - Removed some of pygame's deprecation warnings - Switched to a more consistent code format Slingshot is currently maintained by Ryan Kavanagh <email@example.com>. If someone is interested in helping with upstream maintainership and give slingshot some love, please feel free. --- Copyright/Licensing --- Slingshot is a two-dimensional strategy game where two players attempt to shoot one another through a section of space populated by planets. The main feature of the game is that the shots, once fired, are affected by the gravity of the planets.
