Tombraider 0.1

Tombraider 0.1 is a single-player game installation based on the famous 3d game Tombraider, starring the female fightingmachine Lara Croft.
In Tombraider 0.1 users play a primitive 2d version of this computergame, where all graphics & audio resemble the simplicity of the very first gameconsoles, including references to classic computer gaming experiences such as the stuck "loading" screen, bad language translations and space-invader attacks.

 
How it works
Users can select a game from a mainmenu containing 4 diffrent Tombraider games.
The first screen will explain the goal of the game and how to use it, from there users can play the game using the gamepad and try to score points.
