Mokomaze is the opensource implementation of the classic game where you control a steel ball by tilting a wooden labyrinth. It is written in C using SDL and adapted for Neo Freerunner. Installation instructions have been updated on homepage. New game mode allows to create levels where screen space is used more rationally (less dead zones). Online level editor was also updated so feel free to share your multi-checkpoint levels. Major changes are:

  • Added "pass-through-checkpoints" game mode + 3 new levels to demonstrate it (##14-16)
  • Latest extended levelpack is included by default now
  • Keep level switching button pressed to fast-forward/fast-rewind
  • Works fine with libode from OM's repository
  • Many minor fixes and improvements
