M.A.R.S. shooter is ridiculous in a game and open source multiplatform arcade inspired by the old games like Asteroids once. The aim of the game is to destroy as many enemies as possible by driving your little spaceship.
Take the hand with the management of the spacecraft at the beginning is not easy but just a little practice perhaps through the tutorial.
The gaming experience is made more attractive graphics and well taken care of by the music that will accompany us during gameplay. In addition, the development team is working to implement the ability to play online with friends.
Recently, Mars has been added to the PPA for Ubuntu Core Team (Lucid, Maverick and Natty) and derivatives that will allow us to install and keep updated the game. Repository is also present in the same version in development.
To install M.A.R.S. derivative of Ubuntu and just give the following terminal commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa mars-core/ppa
sudo apt-get update
and finally install the game. At this point, as said about, you have two choices, either install the stable version giving
sudo apt-get install marsshooter
or alternatively install the development version (the two versions can not coexist) giving
sudo apt-get install svn-marsshooter
For other distro like Arch Linux, Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE, Sabayon, etc. the link to download the MARS is as follows. http://mars-game.sourceforge.net/?page_id=972
On this page http://mars-game.sourceforge.net/?page_id=8 you will find hand versions for MacOSX and Windows.
