Not a great experience on a trackpad. Nice idea though with the Hitler game! The arcade
shoot-em-up part on the other hand is not very imaginative.

Would have loved to see some more sound variation, for example the player hit noise gets lost
among the enemy hit noise (they're the same I think). I really like 1942 and I think you made a
good effort here. I love the idea of generating game content from Wikipedia.

pygame.math.Vector2 is only available in pygame 1.10 or 1.9 pre-releases, not in any
official release. E.g. pip install wouldn't give me a version new enough to have it. Thus, I was
not able to run this.

where is the data data data? what about those connections?

I never made it to Hitler :( Closest I think I got was Guadalcanal.

The game looks good, personally had difficulty surviving to explore the wiki aspect.

Looked really nice but so insanely difficult I couldn’t survive longer than about 20 seconds
(not sure if I missed something about the controls?) cool idea, good use of theme.

pygame on linux does not include a math module, therefore the game crashes and does not play
when the game tries to use said missing math module. Traceback (most recent call last): File

I like the idea of the Wikipedia integration but this didn't really come through in the
gameplay, which turned it into "just" a quite fun vertical shmup! The shooter was well
implemented and fun to play. Collecting the gems was cool. This seems like it could have been
really interesting if the Wikipedia integration was a bit more visible and integrated into
the gameplay.

Using Wikipedia as part of the game is a nice idea. The gameplay, on the other hand, is rather
ordinary. I like the graphics and sounds as well. Also the hitbox of the ship is way too big.

Looks like you require pygame 1.10, and after a while spent trying to install it on Ubuntu
(looks like you have to install it from source? That's a little beyond me.), I'm afraid I have to
give up. It's a shame, I was really looking forward to this game. Sounds like a very innovative
concept. Maybe one day in the future when pygame 1.10 is released I'll come back and give it a

This game beeps a lot. Is it supposed to do that? Also, the planes don't move fast enough to avoid
return fire, so I can't even get past the first level.
