This is a game where you get to fly a small antigrav utility vehicle around a large landscape picking up boxes and returning them to your base. The problem is that the vehicle is a bit fuel guzzler and will use up what little fuel it has quite quickly. The original inspiration is the old Spectrum game called “Cyclone”.

All textures, sounds etc are included in the zip file, together with details of how to fly the vehicle, guidance on the game logic used. The whole package is about 22Mb. You will need a copy of Blender to play it. I would advise one of the older versions becasue it was designed to run on Blender-2.49b and updated to run on Blender-2.5. I have not tested it on the latest version.

To play, unzip the file into its own directory making sure you preserve the file structure. Open the file in Blender, and hit ‘p’ to start. In order to take off you will need to press “g’ to activate the grav-engine (if you have not already read the instruction manual).

All textures in the game work reliably if the computer video card can work with GLSL (most modern computers can.)

Enjoy. It was a fun and interesting project to get it this far.
