Here’s an updated version.
The following changes have been performed:
- Splash Screen added (no more emptiness while loading resources)
- Help Screen updated to include some small bit of story
- Main Menu item added to go directly to Help Screen
- Unused audio assets removed (reducing file size by about 1/2)
The requirements to play are simply a Java 7 Runtime Environment. To start the game, double click on the Attack_The_Geth.jar file.
If the game doesn’t work when you double click the Attack_The_Geth.jar file then please make sure your Java is updated.
There’s some more updates planned, so if there’s anything you want to see added, let me know!
You can have up to 9, thanks to Pupnik and N-Dimensional Roguelike.

It can be a bit hard to figure out at first, but such is the nature of dealing with more than 3 dimensions. Don’t give up, it’s quite a bit of fun and it’ll help your brain think in new ways!
Lots of fancy new features in this version of SquidLib!
But first, a picture of FOV in action:
There are a variety of Field of View algorithms built in, along with an assortment of wrappers to really allow customization of their output. My personal favorite is the TranslucenceWrapperFOV with a ShadowFOV base, which is what you see in the image above.
Other FOV algorithm options include a water-like spread, outward rippling, and Elias-based ray casting.
There are currently two Line of Sight algorithms, Bresenham which draws a direct line, and Elias which draws an anti-aliased line. The following two images display the differences.
