The Pandoran War is a 2D mission-based space shooter, set between THE THIRD SIDE and THE ATTTRIBUTE OF THE STRONG. The game features over 50 individual missions, with many different objectives and craft to pilot.
The gameplay manual can be found in the "manual" folder of the game archive (and in /opt/tbftss/manual in the Linux binary installs). It can also be read online, by clicking here.
Below is a list of the downloads available for the game. You should download the file that matches your operating system (or the source code, if you prefer to compile your own version).
Windows: Uncompress the zip file, and double click on tbftss.exe to launch the game.
Linux x86: Unpack the archive, change into the directory it was extracted into, and run ./tbftss from the command line to launch the game.
Linux source builds: Unpack the archive and change into the directory it was extracted into. Run make, and then make install (likely, you will need to be sudo for this to work). The game can then be started via the Games menu entry. Alternatively, the game can be started from the commmand line by typing tbftss. The binary will be installed into /usr/bin, and the data into /opt/tbftss.
