Using and playing the game
After launching the game and selecting Play, a list of profiles appears. (These profiles are stored in $HOME/ii_game-data/) Once a profile is selected, map mode is entered. The LEFT, RIGHT, TAB, HOME, and END keys are used to navigate the map. After selecting a mission and continuing through the briefing and inventory mode, a mission begins. The controls are LEFT and RIGHT to move (or a and d) and SPACE, UP, or w to fire.
At some point you may see an item () After touching an item, it will disappear and go into your item storage ( ) An icon representing the item will be visible in your item storage. Press the number key on your keyboard that equals the one below the item's icon (i.e. If the item is in slot three, it will have a "3" under it, and you must press <3> to activate it.) The items vary from mission to mission (and planet to planet)
When using the "2x Fire Rate" item without the "Auto Gun" item, it is easiest to fire faster by pressing the UP key.
Press F2 to take screenshots. Screenshots get stored in your data directory. The data directory's position gets printed when the game launches.
Some images (described in the game's credits) are either directly used or modified versions of NASA images.
