📕 Description [fr]

Un jeu d'arcade dont l'objectif est de transporter une sphère d'un endroit à un autre à l'aide de votre vaisseau spatial en luttant non seulement contre la gravité et l'inertie de l'ensemble, mais aussi des canons, tanks et autres portes, par le studio Brain Games (Santi Ontañón).

Supertransball2 est la suite des jeux Transball et Transball 2 (sur Amiga 500) - inspirés par le jeu Thrust (sur BBC et Acorn), dont l'objectif est de transporter une sphère d'un endroit à un autre à l'aide de votre vaisseau spatial en luttant non seulement contre la gravité et l'inertie de l'ensemble, mais aussi des canons, tanks et autres portes qui pimentent un peu la vie quotidienne du pilote chevronné que vous êtes :).

D'autres niveaux sont disponibles sur le site.

📕 Description [en]

"Super Transbal 2" is the sequel of "Transball" and "Transball 2", Inspired in THRUST type of games (and concretely in ZARA THRUSTA for the Amiga 500).
In each level of Transball, the goal is to find the SPHERE, capture it and carry it to the upper part of the level. The main obstacle is the gravity, that impulses you towards the ground. But many other obstacles, canons, tanks, doors, etc. will try to make difficult your journey...

You can choose between three types of ships for acomplishing your goal: Shadow Runner, V-Panther & X-Terminator.

Each one of the ships has its own characteristics:

• The SHADOW RUNNER is an extremely fast ship, and has "retro thrusters", that can often safe your life. The problem with this ship is that its weapons have nearly no destruction power, and thus, many shots are needed to kill each enemy (4 shots for a standard canon).

• The V-PANTHER 2 is the ship that you controlled in "Transball" and "Transball 2". Its a well balanced ship, it has medium speed, and medium powered weapons (2 shots to kill a standard canon).

• The X-TERMINATOR is an extremely powerfull ship. It can kill a standard canon with only one shot, but the main problem is that as it is heavy weighted, it cannot reach high speeds.

For beginners, I recomend to use V-PANTHER 2 or the X-TERMINATOR. And when you reach a master level controlling those ships, you can switch to the SHADOW RUNNER, that is a ship more difficult to control, but that has much more potential than the other two. Moreover, I do not recomend the SHADOW RUNNER to beginners...

Transball is not an easy game, so to pass the 15th level (the last one), you will need lots of practice!

Another feature of Super Transball 2, is that you can save replays. Once your ship is destroyed, or you have ended the game, you can go to the REPLAYS section, where you will see the replays of all your attempts (with names: AUTOREPLAY???.RPL). You can see them, and rename all the replays you want to save. All the replays not renamed, will be automatically deleted when you play again. The game comes with four REPLAYS saved by me (DEMO1.RPL,...,DEMO4.RPL), if you think you can play better than me, just send me your replay files and we will see.... ;)
During the gameplay, the time spent to solve a level is not displayed (just not to get you nervious), but you can consult it on the replay. So, you can make time competitions against your friends, or against me... if you dare... ;)


🍥️ Debian:

Super Transball 2 is a game which was inspired by ZARA THRUSTA for the Amiga 500. In each level the goal is to find the SPHERE, to capture it and to carry it to the upper part of the level. The main challenge is the gravity that attracts your ship which makes it inevitable to control the ship's thrust. Many other obstacles like cannons, tanks, doors or lasers will also try to make your journey difficult and don't be wasteful with your thrusters and weapons or you will run out of fuel in no time.

🚧️ Installation [fr]

INSTALLATION :
Les liens du site sont tous brisés, néanmoins fort heureusement, il se trouve dans les dépôts Debian (pour les autres distributions, le source est toujours disponible sur les pages Debian).


TOUCHES / CONTROLS :
Les touches sont redéfinissables dans le jeu.

Plein écran / fenêtré : Alt ENTRER

🔍️ Test [fr]

🕵️ Test (1.5) en 2010 :
Un graphisme assez réussi néanmoins l'écran est microscopique (5 cm x 5 cm) et le plein écran ne fonctionne pas correctement.


🕵️ Test (1.5-6 dans les dépôts Debian) en 2013 :
Avec la version actuelle de Xorg, le plein écran (Alt ENTRER) fonctionne parfaitement.
Le jeu prend alors un tout autre intérêt.
Excellent mais un gameplay très difficile.

Bravo et merci à son auteur !
