I had a Commodore Amiga and a game I played, a lot, was Mayhem, its a multiplayer (2-4) shooter – imagine multiplayer asteroids, with gravity, fuel and shields!
It was ported to the PC in 2002 by devpack who released the code in 2011 on github and google code which is where I picked it up and ported it to the Raspberry Pi.
I got some help from the Raspberry Pi forums in getting it to compile then it was case of sorting out a few case sensitive filename bugs (it was original written for Windows!) and tracking down a bug in the original code which was causing a memory access error and segmentation fault.
