Freaks 2.002

A remake of Freaks!

Freaks 2.002 is a port of Freaks!, a 3D maze and monster smashing adventure developed in the 90's, to newer architectures. The original code was too MSDOS-dependent (including big chunks of Turbo Assembler!), so a remake using the QDGDF library was done to boost portability. On the way, some new features were implemented:

  • Full angle rotation (not limited to the original 90 degree steps),
  • Engine improvements (depth cue lighting, better sounds management),
  • Map definitions and some game logic rewritten in a higher-level language (using Filp),
  • More ambientation (rain, lightning storms, etc).

The game idea is mostly unchanged; the only difference is that life is not replenished after killing a monster, but after passing over a corpse (as if "feeding" from it).

This software is released into the public domain.
