PLEASE NOTE: This project is no longer under active development. I have switched to Lua/LOVE as my language of choice, and am working on porting Pylot to Lua.
Pylot is a multi-stage project to build a complex 2D spaceflight game in Python, inspired by Asteroids, XPilot, and Luola. The first stage of the project, which has been completed, is to create a clone of Asteroids - with a few improvements on the original gameplay. The second stage is to develop the game into a clone of XPilot, and will include client-server multiplayer. The third stage is to incorporate elements from other games, such as the little-known cave-flyer called Luola, including destructible terrain, circular gravity sources and EVAs.
- Intuitive mouse-based controls
- Vector graphics and nostalgic sound effects
- Custom levels and an easy-to-use world editor
- Semi-realistic physics
- Randomized asteroid shapes
