Somewhere in the world, war rages. You are a infra-red TV operator (gunner) aboard an AC-130 gunship. Your mission is to provide fire support for friendly troops on the ground. Beware of friendly fire! Do not fire on troops marked by a flashing IR strobe!

AC-130 is an arcade shooter game with old-school gameplay delivered in a modern style. The game has been written as part of a university assignment in C programming and has since begun a life of its own as an open-source project. Inspired by the famous Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare "Death From Above" mission.

All content is procedurally generated, which allows the game to be of minimal size (around 370 kB, 256 of which is the font texture).

The preview release

News

I would like to clarify some things.

First of all, the game has no real gameplay yet - i.e. there's nothing to kill. There is a soldier sprite in the middle of the terrain, but he's there just for display, he cannot be interacted with. I just didn't have enough time to finish the project before turning it in at the university.

Secondly, there is an outstanding performance issue with the game on ATI/AMD hardware. You will be getting very low framerates on their GPUs, and I'm still not sure what's the deal. I'll be trying to fix it.

Heh, thanks. :) I'm working on this on my own and am currently doing some game development professionally over the summer, but I should be able to get back to this in August or September. Or in October, when the academic year starts.
