|Trip on the Funny Boat is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.|
The player controls a steamboat with a cannon, and tries to destroy or avoid sharks (which hurt the ship when colliding, but at the same time die), mines and other ships.
The game appears to work everywhere Python does, and is available at least in:
