Colobot - colonise with bots - is a combination of a real-time strategy and a programming game. The player takes the role of an astronaut with the mission to find a habitable planet, after humankind plunged the Earth into an ecological catastrophe. The player is not on their own, but accompanied by programmable robots that can help in building and defending structures. Through a satellite link with 'Houston' she/he is directed to complete a number of missions on different planets. The game also involves a rather aggressive though evolving relationship with native alien lifeforms.

Apart from the missions, there are also two game modes that instruct the player in the use of CBOT, the language used to program the bots. This language is rather similar to C++ and Java. During the missions, it's not really necessary to write code for the bots, but it is convenient to be able to adapt the programs Houston offers to the player. Version 0.1.6 introduced the Code Battle game mode, where players first provide all programs needed to operate a base and/or kill all enemies, and then let the programmed bots do their job without the possibility to interfere. The game provides three types of enemies: passive targets, pre-programmed bots and hot-seat play against a fellow human.

The game will be released in modules, rather than waiting until the entire game is finished to make a release.

Each Allacrost release will contain a new chapter of the story. Each section is released when it is completely finished.[198]

Limbs Off LimbsOff.png phun-fysics,

Fighting

Limbs Off is the flagship in plaimi's phun-fysics genre, in which they strive to reproduce complex real life physics, but take certain liberties whenever they feel it will add to the entertainment of the games. Limbs Off specifically is a fighting game that takes place in space. Right now there is only one planet and three characters, but plaimi want to implement several planets as well as inter-planetary travel via cannons, amongst other features[223].

The characters are "limbless", and consist of a head, body, two feets and hands. As of yet, the only way of "fighting" is running into each other. When the characters hit each other, their mass is decreased up to a point where their body parts are unlinked and the characters effectively become space junk[224].

The source code is licensed under the GNU GPL[225], and plaimi encourage people to contribute with code, make their own art, and make packages for UNIX package managers[226].

Limbs Off does not come with sprites or sounds. Instead, plaimi want to hack the game to load art from a data directory, so that users can install their own art. As of yet it only supports this with character sprites[227], as the game is at a very early alpha stage. It "went public" on the 24th of September in 2011, on github[228].

The game runs on relatively modest hardware, and has been compiled and run successfully on most modern UNIX-based operating systems[229].

SilChess SilChess-EM071.png Chess

SilChess (from “silly chess”) is a chess program written by Oliver Hamann in C++ in the years 2000—2009.

SilChess.cpp - Command line version of SilChess

The command-line version shows a pseudographical board with ASCII art pieces, and asks for a command. It also supports xboard protocol.

The other version (using the same code) is a plug-in for the Eagle Mode ZUI environment. Its UI is isometric, with the pieces reflecting everything around them.

The plug-in says it is called so because it was written by a weak chess player and weak chess programmer. However, John Knight called the AI “rather aggressive” and “rather nasty” in his article.[335]
