A clone of Star Castle by Cinematronics. This fork of XSC is intended to behave more like the arcade version of the game. Your ship has to shoot an enemy ship that is guarded by 3 spinning rings and heat-seeking mines. Once you clear away the rings, you can finally shoot at the enemy ship -- but the enemy ship can also shoot you!

This game was made to work with the windowing system known as X.
