    Hello,

    In my school, I learned to know a simple game. This game is called "xTacka".
    In this game, you have to stop your opponents with your own line, each player got one line.
    This game is really, really simple (also graphical), but it's also really fun to play with other people.

    I think, that this game would be AWESOME to play on DS via WiFi, for sure.
    At first, I thought this game sucks. But if you'll play it a short time with your friends, you'll recognize the capability of it!

    I hope that some coders are interested in this, it's like a dream of a homebrew-game, for myself.

    So, here's the real download-link for this game, it's a game, coded of german coders:
    http://overgood.ov.funpic.de/xtacka/downloads.php (just download the .zip and test it!)

    It's just a idea of myself, but I think it would be fun for really many people,
    thanks for reading my post.


    direct download link:
    windows: http://overgood.ov.funpic.de/xtacka/downloads/XTacka.zip
    linux: http://overgood.ov.funpic.de/xtacka/downloads/xtacka.tar.gz

    Tutorial:
    Unzip/unrar the "xTacka.exe" and "font.tga" in one folder, start the "xTacka.exe" and play it.
    The whole game is english! (except the start up "Achtung die Kurve")


    Btw.: It could be called:

    xTackaDS
    dsTacka, etc.

    @All:

    Did you even try to play this game? - It would be nice if you would response, why you don't mind or just don't like the idea.
    And please, just get your fingers at the poll, if you even tried out xTacka.

    Edit: Oh, double posting. I'm sorry!

    I couldn't figure out how to even start it, boot looking at the site, it seems to be tron/lightcycles/snake/nibbles with wiggly lines instead of straight ones.

    Alright, a little description of the game:

    Zatacka was an old DOS-Game, which was the predecessor of xTacka.

    The control of xTacka is similar to "Snake", but you have NOT to loot pixel-food, you've to play it at least with 2 players. Try to "eliminate" the other player, while you're trying to cut his way.
    You'll get one point, for every player who's stucking.
    After all players, except one, are "down", the next round is starting, till you got the maximal points (with 2 players: max 20points, with 3 player: max 30 points, etc.).

    It's really a good game and everyone here should try it out with his friends or his family at home.


    @spinal_cord: You just have to download
    (direct link to download:)
    THIS: http://overgood.ov.funpic.de/xtacka/downloads/XTacka.zip

    .Zip, then unrar/unzip the "font.tga" and the "xTacka.exe" in one folder.

    Start the xTacka.exe to start the game.

    Btw.: the whole game, except the name "Achtung die Kurve" at startup is english!

    could be a good idea. If it was an old dos-box game im pretty sure thes a dos-box emulator for ds that you can try and run it on

    The problem is, I can't even find the DOS-Version.

    But I think a homebrew-game especially for ds would be even better.

    You could bring up new experiences like walls, items (for speed, color changes, etc.)

    With dsTacka, we could get an advanced gaming experience of xTacka!

    Edit: And for sure, you couldn't play it in multiplayer mode with a DOS-Emulator. So, it doesn't seem to be playable with an DOS-Emulator.

    And we have to be true: A WiFi-Mode would be awesome for this game, I'm sure.

    I'm german too, and I think this idea is great.
    I also tried to play the game with a friend now, and we were impressed, how great this game is.
    At the first moment, I thought I'll close it in the next minutes, but we played it nearly 2 hours, lol.
    Great game, I would love to see it for my DS.

    Let me guess - this is Tron.

    Try DronS by Noobey - a nice tron clone. (It's somewhere around the downloads)

    DronS is 3d, dsTacka wouldn't be.

    I think 3d, it isn't that fun, but DronS is great, too.

    I'm sorry, but "Pizza Worm" is something like Snake, not like xTacka.

    I played DronS now, but the curves aren't rounded and you have health (instead that you're dying with the first hit), also I don't like the graphics that much.

    I just beg for someone, who could port it to ds... [​IMG]

    Edit: Because everyone that voted for "It's not a good idea, ..." at the poll thought that responsing here is useless, I deleted this one.
    For now, the poll has just 2 options.
