WormBlast-1.2.0-alpha for Linux released!

A new release after a while. This is still an alpha release, so a lot of planned features/improvements still under development. There's now a working support for walls. Computer players are able to cope with them pretty well.

In WormBlast, a total of 8 worms (1-2 human players) are trying to collect as many points as possible. One can gain score by shooting at other worms and collecting different objects like body pieces that have been cut off. New guns and ammunition can be collected as well. The game area is scrolling and has no boundaries. The worm with the highest score wins.
