An idea drawn from Terry Cavanagh’s VVVVVV, the player is tasked with helping Tina “Topsy” Turvy to reach the each level’s exit by shifting gravity in any of four directions, and using this ability to avoid the robots patrolling their little corner of the map and the shock tiles dotted around the place, both of which will electrocute Topsy and send her back to the start of the level. Topsy’s gravity manipulation is restricted to prevent the player from simply flying harmlessly through levels. Gravity cannot be shifted while Topsy is in mid-fall, and falling too far (more than two tiles) will result in her knocking herself senseless and returning her to the start of the level.READ MORE
The GOG release of Quake II: Quad Damage has a glaring error in that the music tracks provided, while entirely present and correct, have simply been thrown into a single folder without rhyme or reason, or even consideration for track order. As a result, tracks intended for the game’s expansion packs are mixed in with the base game’s own music and will play at the wrong time and place.
This bash script seeks to correct that error by correctly separating those tracks into folders corresponding to the correct game, based on information gleaned from fan wikis and music databases such as MusicBrainz and Discogs.READ MORE
