OpenTyrianWii 1.5.0

by Molokai

This game is a port of OpenTyrian, based on the DOS sourcecode of the game Tyrian for MSDOS. OpenTyrian is an open source project built around the SDL library. This port uses Tantric's SDL port as its base.

Tyrian is an arcade-style vertical scrolling shooter. The player controls a space ship fitted with different weapons and enhanced energy shields. Money is earned by destroying enemies and grabbing bonuses, which is then used to purchase upgrades such as weapons, shields, energy generators, and different ships from interlevel menus. The game is fast paced and presents a variety of enemies and bosses.

-Full Wiimote+Nunchuk, Classic Controller, and USB Keyboard support, 95% GC Pad support.
-Wiimote horizontal capable.
-2 Player Arcade action.
-Full input choice (you can use any Wiimote, classic controller or GC pad, no matter the sync, as well as the keyboard).
-SD and SDHC support from the front SD slot.
-NEW - Fully configurable and savable button mappings for all controllers (see Custom Button Assignments for help).

-Massive core update finally completed. This core update includes many improvements, such as:
-Joystick configurations now savable. No corruption has yet occurred through dozens of saving/loading cycles.
-Game is much more stable. Random crashes seem nonexistent.
-Sound distortions are at an all-time low. Pops/crackles hardly noticeable, if at all.
-This core update also includes all previous improvements, such as the on-screen keyboard and menu exclusions/changes to avoid any possible problems resulting from settings incompatible with the Wii.
