What is SuperTux? It is an open-source game without any stinkers.
SuperTux is a classic 2D jump'n run sidescroller game in a style similar to the original Super Mario games. The Milestone1 release of SuperTux features 9 enemies, 26 playable levels, software and OpenGL rendering modes, configurable joystick and keyboard input, new music and completely redone graphics. Together with a little story, we hope to provide a good gaming experience with this first Milestone release.
The improvements in Milestone1 are in huge part the result of the work done surrounding the Game of the Month March 2004 event on happypenguin.org.
Introduction Story Edit
Penny gets captured!
Tux and Penny were out having a nice picnic in the ice fields of Antarctica. Suddenly, a creature jumped from behind an ice bush, there was a flash, and Tux fell asleep!
When Tux wakes up, he finds that Penny is missing. Where she lay before now lies a letter. “Tux, my arch enemy!” says the letter. “I’ve captured my beautiful Penny and have taken her to my fortress. Give up the thought of trying to rescue her, you haven’t a chance!” – Nolok
Tux looks and sees Nolok’s fortress in the distance. Determined to save his beloved Penny, he begins his journey.
