wxAsteroids

A demonstration of how to use wxHaskell

Your space ship enters an asteroid belt, try to avoid collisions!

wxAsteroids is a game demonstrating the wxHaskell GUI. To run the game, you will need wxHaskell, see:

https://wiki.haskell.org/WxHaskell#Documentation

If wxHaskell is installed, and you have cabal-install on your system, give the folllowing command to install wxAsteroids:

cabal install wxAsteroids

Another option is, to download the wxAsteroids tarball from Hackage and unpack it; go to the directory with the game code and enter the commands:

runhaskell Setup configure
runhaskell Setup build
runhaskell Setup install

You will get a message about the directory in which the executable is installed; this directory must be in the search path.

Give the following command to start the game:

wxAsteroids

Controls:

  • Use the left and right cursor keys to move the ship sideways.
  • Ctrl-n creates a new window with a new Asteroids game.
  • Ctrl-p pauses/resumes the game.
  • To increase the speed of the space ship, press '+';
  • to slow down, press '-'.
