Charlies Games the developer of many space shooters has finally ported to GNU/Linux one of his first games, Bullet Candy

I’ve recently ported the original Bullet Candy to Linux! It’s the same version that’s on Steam for Windows. Here’s a video of it in action:


I’ve not sold Bullet Candy on this site for a while now for some reason, so i though i’d pop it up and see what happens!

It’s my usual $1+ donation if you want to buy a copy, and I’ll provide versions for Windows and OS X (universal binary) as well as Linux if you decide to take the plunge. I’m pretty sure this is the cheapest you can get the game too! Oh, and it’s got no DRM, which i think is not the case if you buy from elsewhere.
Please enter the amount you wish to pay below and click Buy. Minimum amount $1! Remember to click ‘Return to Merchant’ after you’ve paid, or you might have to wait a little while to get your links

If you’re wondering what the game is like, it’s a shooty game! A million years ago, it won a GameTunnel Gold Award, so you *know* it’s a winner!

Have fun!



Thanks to Grzegorz Budny for the great news.

Charlie’s Games is working on a new game called Scoregasm that will also have a native GNU/Linux client like his other games.
Scoregasm like all his other games is a fast and colorful space shooter with 100’s of enemies, new combo system and multiple paths and endings !

The interesting thing about this unreleased game is the pre-orders options, as with the other games Charlie lives from donations and depending on how much you donate you get different stuff – and if you donate $50, you will get all of his future games for free – for life !

Scoregasm is due to come on December(2009)-January(2010).

Scoregasm is a fun shoot-em-up game current in development. The game is set in a little galaxy comprised of various different arenas that have been invaded by naughty space baddies! It’s your job to sort them out.
The galaxy is made up of just over 60 different stages, and during a single game you can play up to 20. Each level has 3 possible exits (and some have secret exits too), how many exits appear at the end of the level depends on how well you perform. This means that there are multiple routes through the game, allowing you to play through just your favorite levels, or the levels that will help you get the highest score, or easiest/hardest depending on how much of a masochist you are.
The crux of the game is based around the combo system, shoot enemies to build up a high combo, but leave it too long between kills and it will start to fall.
Building up your combo meter does a variety of things, including powering up your shots, adding extra weaponry and increasing the size of your death sphere! Also, each level has different combo targets, which if met will open up exits to new levels in the galaxy.
If you hit a combo target, the level goes into Scoregasm frenzy mode, and extends 10 seconds! depending on which target you hit, you’ll either get a regular frenzy, or a Super Frenzy – where every enemy you kill turns into a love heart.
Along with your regular shots and collectible power up pods, you can use your Death Sphere to help you get out of tight spots. Hitting the right mouse button or a joystick shoulder button will activate it, and any enemy inside it’s radius will take massive damage. You can use this to build your combo meter too, and skilled players can use it to turn enemy bullets into high scoring love hearts!
There will also be a number of different ships to play the game with, each with their own unique features and controls – i.e. a mouse controlled shiny silver orb that kills enemies using lightning/electricity attacks, or the mouse and keyboard/joystick controlled ship from Bullet Candy Perfect as well as others.

* 60+ levels
* Multiple paths through the game, and multiple endings
* Fancy 3D graphics
* Well over 100 different enemy types
* Secret levels
* Unlockable extra stuff
* Choice of different player ships, each with different controls
* Lots more…

The current guesstimated release date for Scoregasm is late December 2009 – January 2010. However, if you want to get in on the action sooner you can make a pre-order donation of one of the amounts below, or just show your support and get a copy of Bullet Candy Perfect now !
