Kleum for dos was the first ever release of kleum (a snake game with nice hand made levels), latest version was released in August 2001 (first in ~ 1998), this game features :
- Multiplayer support (on the same screen) : cooperative or deathmatch
- 39 levels, 5 arenas (for multiplayer)
- Score and bonuses
- Level editor
The requirements are quite small 🙂
- ms-dos (or fully compatible) system, works fine on dosbox
- Intel 80386 or above computer (works fine on Pentium and current computers)
- 648kb RAM
It seems the video mode I was using is not compatible with VirtualBox (I have not tried VMware), but it works perfectly fine with dosbox. I would suggest lowering speed in order for the game to be easier (there’s a small speed difference on actual computers).
On first two launches it will create some configuration files, just launch it three times to play.
Full source code is included (QBasic 7.1)
