Author's Description: Mowteor is a simple game where you have to cut grass before the clouds rain and make it grow back. The game makes fun of Meteor (a game a made a while back) and can be quite challenging. Map, tile and sprite editors are included as well as Meteor style modding support.
Even though Mowteor was originally released in 2010, Version 1.1 is a complete rewrite for Allegro 5. I felt it best to try out Allegro 5 by rewriting a smaller existing game before moving onto a much larger project. The idea is to reuse the game’s core code (including event handling, GUI and sound/music engine). Essentially it is a test game but others may enjoy playing it.
In my spare time I make Allegro games. (View Profile)
