Pyskool

In 1984, Microsphere published Skool Daze, a game for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. In 1985, the sequel Back to Skool was published.

Each game is based in a boys' school (though Back to Skool adds a playground and a girls' school) and revolves around the antics of Eric, the hero. In Skool Daze, Eric must steal his report card from the school safe - the combination of which must be extracted from the teachers' brains using flashing shields or, in the case of the history teacher, post-hypnotic suggestion. In Back to Skool, Eric must get his report card back into the school safe, this time with the extra help provided by a water pistol, stinkbombs, a bike, mice, a frog and a girlfriend.

Pyskool is a re-implementation of these classic games in Python and Pygame, with the aim of making them easy to customise by editing a configuration file or - for more advanced customisation - writing some Python code.

See the documentation for more details (mirror here).

Playing Pyskool

Before playing Pyskool for the first time from a checkout of this repository, you will need to create the game launcher scripts, images, ini files and sound files:

$ make scripts images ini sounds

Then you can run one of the game launcher scripts:

$ ./skool_daze.py
$ ./back_to_skool.py
$ ./skool_daze_take_too.py
$ ./ezad_looks.py
$ ./back_to_skool_daze.py
