wxAsteroids

A demonstration of how to use wxHaskell

Your space ship enters an asteroid belt, try to avoid collisions!

wxAsteroids is a game demonstrating the wxHaskell GUI. To run the game, you will need wxHaskell, see: <br> http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/WxHaskell#Documentation

If wxHaskell is installed, and you have cabal-install on your system, give the folllowing command to install wxAsteroids:

cabal install wxAsteroids

Another option is, to download the wxAsteroids tarball from [Hackage]( http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/wxAsteroids ) and unpack it; go to the directory with the game code and enter the commands:

runhaskell Setup configure runhaskell Setup build runhaskell Setup install

You will get a message about the directory in which the executable is installed; this directory must be in the search path.

Give the following command to start the game:
