Paratim is the abbreviation of Paratrooper improved.
Paratim is based on the old Paratrooper game by Orion Software. It can be downloaded for free from several abandonware sites.
The current version is playable, but there isn't much improved compared to the old DOS game. This is planned for later releases however.
In the game you play with the gun in the bottom center of the game while helicopters fly overhead. Those helicopters sometimes drop paratroopers. When their are four or more paratroopers on one side of the gun it's game over. To prevent this you have to shoot the paratroopers while they fall and/or the helicopters.
After a round of helicopters planes arrive that drop bombs aimed at the gun. If a bomb hits you it's game over as well. To prevent this you have to shoot the bomb and/or the airplanes.
The controls of the game are very simple:
Point gun left/right: Arrow key left/right
Shoot bullet: Arrow key up
What's New in This Release:
Paratim now compiles on Mac OS X (thanks to Ni?l Dogger for telling me what to change and for testing it)
Removed the debug messages that appear on the screen if the game is started from a console
Removed an obsolete function
