Alien Breed Obliteration for the Wii
A homebrew clone of FlashJesterPunk's excellent PC retro remake of the classic Alien Breed games for the Wii console.
This game requires a soft-modded Wii capable of running Homebrew. The app runs off your sdcard and is launched from the Homebrew Channel
Download the abinst installer app and unzip in your apps directory on your wii sdcard. Run Homebrew Channel and launch the Alien Breed installer.
The installer must download the levels and game media from the internet. Working Wifi is required. If you do not have working Wifi then download FlashJesterPunk's PC version and place the zip file within the apps/abinst directory on your sdcard.
Hold the Wiimote horizontally in your hand with the D pad to the left.
|Enter Intex terminal|
|Run (hold and move)|
|Cycle weapon (when purchased more weapons through Intex terminals)|
|Cheat button (if cheats enabled)|
The Wii game controller can also be used.
Tip: Remember to enter Intex terminals regularly to purchase tools and weapons. Keep stocked up on keys. You can shoot through doors but it uses a lot of ammo.

The game is written in Python and uses SDL for graphics, sound and controller input. It is portable and runs comfortably on Linux, Windows and the Wii. It should be fairly easy to port to other environments (assuming an SDL port is available). The Wii executable is built using the devkitpro GNU toolchain using an embedded Python interpretter. The game runs directly off FlashJesterPunk's game media which the installer retrieves as part of installation.
Please note the game levels and media are not part of this project and are not Free Software. Please respect FlashJesterPunk and Team17's copyright by not distributing the game media with this game. If you want to distribute this game then please distribute the installer.
