Zlog Arthur Huillet www www About Zlog (on the project's website) www Storyline of Zlog 0.3.4 Zlog is a 2d platform game, more or less like Supertux Zlog is a 2D platform game. Basically, you jump on platforms and kill ennemies, like in many other games out there. The concept itself is not very original - that's why Zlog is aimed at providing a unique gameplay. It is for the moment pretty much like SuperMario (or Supertux), since the weapon subsystem is not yet implemented. It should heavily rely on the plot - what most platform games lack. arcade unknown img on on on off off off 2005-04-28 4 2005-04-28 13:24:57 11095 www The Allegro game programming library is required in its version 4.1.18.
