Luola OS4 Version:

Maybe my biggest port so far in terms of work and times i got stuck(and so far
the most broken one too im afraid though its only the menu system but scroll
down here and see how to play anyway).

The Game is not 100% ported yet , its been on my hdd for a while now so i just
released today as i got just as far with configure and a total re-port.

Known problems in the OS4 version atm:

The menus are totally wrong , they work but not really trustable (as they say
Disabled on features and so on even if theyre not) and you cannot save the state
though you can just adjust the files: startup.cfg and luola.cfg and for the
music just include the music in the battle.pls (Standard procedure).

I am sorry for the menu's state atm but i am determined to find the godforsaken
problem but the orginal author mentioned that my attempt is infact the first
attempt to port his game to the PPC cpu that has reached "an working state".

I have played the game for a few hours + it was tested by Raziel/jahc aswell and
he had nothing to add regarding bugs or such though there might be loads so let
me know if such arise.

To the people out there who aint fammiliar with the term Cave flying, well maybe
you have heard about the amiga classic game called Turboraketti or Gravity Force
2 or even Rocketz ? , well thoose are cave flyers ;-)

The Game features some very cool things which i never saw in such a game before
, to name a few:

*You can Eject the pilot from your ship (and use a bungee to get back to base or
*Upgrades, you can get special weapons on your base.
*Lots of things that will try and take you out Cannons / cows / soldiers / bats
and so on.
*Jump gates aka warp's , nice to use when you're escaping your enemy.
*Teamplay mode (just set team flag in the same color as the guy u want to team
up with).
*4 player at one screen!

Luola offers a range of playmodes aswell:

* Normal - This is the normal playmode, nothing special
 * Start outside ships - Otherwise the same as normal, but pilots start outside
   their ships
 * Start outside ships-1 - like above, but one unlucky player has no ship...
 * Random criticals - Players start with random ship criticals
 * Random weapons - Standard and special weapons are chosen at random

The game is Multiplayer Only , from 2 to 4 players at same time.
Luola has no Internet support so you need to gather your friends and have a
party game :-)
