The game comes in three flavours. One for Windows only (with or without Java installed), one for Windows and Linux with Java installed and one for all other supported systems (Mac OSX and Solaris X86) including Windows and Linux.
This version includes everything needed to play the game in a self-extracting archive. Just download, double click, unzip and run the Robombs.cmd to play it. Have fun!
or, if you prefer an installer to properly install the game, use this one:
Windows and Linux with Java5 (or higher) installed
If you are running Windows or Linux X86 and already have Java5 or higher installed, this version may be for you. It’s a zip-file that includes everything except Java itself. Download, unzip and run the Robombs.cmd for Windows or the Robombs.sh (you may how the set the file’s attributes accordingly) for Linux to play.
Windows, Linux, Mac OSX and Solaris
The webstart version supports Windows, Linux X86, Mac OSX and Solaris x86 (doesn’t run very well…). Java5 or higher has to be installed on your system to run it.
When clicking on the link, the browser may ask you “download or open”. Please choose “open”. If Java is installed correctly, the file extension will be associated with webstart already, so it should just work!
After starting the game, webstart will present you a security dialog where it states that the used certificate is untrusted and you should not start this application. Please ignore this. The game needs full access to your hardware (like any other game will do too) and i can’t afford a trusted certificate. Hence the message. The game doesn’t do anything that any other game won’t, so there’s no reason not to trust it.
