PushOver - Ocean's puzzle remaked

Pushover is a faithful reimplementation of the game with the same name published in 1992 by Ocean. It contains the original levels. The graphics and sound are very similar when compared with the original game.

More info on the game website: Sourceforge/pushover

Download is available here: AROS-Archives


The task of the game is to rearrange the dominoes on the different platforms so that you can start a chainreaction that makes all dominoes topple over. You may rearrange all dominoes (except for one kind of domino) and place them wherever suitable (except in front of a door).

You win the level, when:
- all dominoes (except for the blocker) have toppled
- no dominoes have crashed, they may fall off the screen though
- the trigger domino fell last
- and you reached the exit door within the time limit

OpenTyrian is a port of the DOS shoot-em-up Tyrian.
Tyrian is an arcade-style vertical scrolling shooter. The story is set in 20,031 where you play as Trent Hawkins, a skilled fighter-pilot employed to fight Microsol and save the galaxy. 
Jason Emery generously gave the OpenTyrian developers a copy of the Tyrian 2.1 source code, which has since been ported from Turbo Pascal to C. The port uses SDL, making it easily cross-platform.

Development is ongoing at OpenTyrian Website

AROS port was done by Yannick Erb, and takes advantage of some AROS SDL features such as Joypad support.

There are some resources spread around the net.
For example here is the Tyrian Fansite
And multiple gfx resources and art for the game as well dedicated handheld ports.
