Swear  v1.0

Swear is a game I wrote a long time ago (the original version ran on the Amiga!).

The game itself is the classic worm game, played in non-euclidean space - that is to say, it is played on the surface of various three-dimensional shapes. It's a pretty simplistic game, and it's old enough to use no hardware acceleration of any kind, so performance may vary.

It's multi-platform, using the Allegro library. I've built it for Windows and Mac OS X. The Mac OS X version doesn't run all that smoothly, though, and I recommend using MacSwear instead. Theoretically, it should compile on Linux machines too, if they have the Allegro library installed, and you run make os=unix. However, this is largely untested.

Realistically speaking, I probably won't do much development on this from here on out. If you want to report bugs, go ahead, but there's no guarantee that I'll do anything about them. If you want to take the source and run with it, go right ahead.

MilkSnake is an updated version of this same basic game for Mac OS X, but with much improved graphics, and with music and sounds!
