Classic asteroids arcade game in Common Lisp, using SDL.
Originally ported from Python by andyhd (thanks, andyhd!). The game now has sounds, keyboard controls, a built-in REPL (triggered by ESC key) and is very playable.
Installation (no git cloning needed)
Install SBCL (or CCL) and quicklisp as described here)
IMPORTANT - install native sdl libraries! For linux, that means apt-get install
Now, in lisp (ql:quickload "asteroids") (asteroids:main)
Quicklisp updates monthly. If you want the newest version, git clone this repo into an asdf-visible directory (see Xach's article). ql:quickload will load the local repo first
The game plays like original asteroids, except instead of saucers you get powerups. Ram the powerups to pick up super-missiles that go through anything, shields, or to stop time.
Q - quit A - rotate ship left F - rotate ship right J - thrust SPC - fire ESC - REPL
P starts the game in attract mode.
Code has been re-organized and cleaned up. Names have been altered to make it more sensible and bugs fixed. Now loading with quicklisp
ESC now brings you to a REPL. Examine the game state, recompile anything (carefully).
I also added audio using MAME asteroids samples. lispbuilder-sdl-mixer is fragile and very sensitive to being shut down correctly in an interactive environment.
