svgalib version of zblast, shoot 'em up space game

zblast is a shoot 'em up space game with a cool sound.

The goal of zblast is to shoot and destroy all enemy ships. When you get it before your ship is destroyed, you can go to a next stage (called "wave" in this game).

Unlike most of other shoot 'em up games, in zblast your ship can bear a fair amount of damage (at least 30 hits and you can gain extra energy during the game). It does not mean that you are safe -- you just need it. In fact, enemy shots are fast and the sky is FILLED with them. If you enjoy surviving a rain of laser beams by dodging them, you may need another package.

The most interesting part of zblast is its music. With the abstract graphics (simple line-only diagrams), zblast can provide a taste of cyber-space.

Two versions of the zblast program are available, one uses svgalib and one uses X11. This package contains svgalib version of the game.
