Dragon Hunt Home

Dragon Hunt is a game that I have been given by Jon Krengel. This program is under the GPL, which gives you the right to the source code as long as you only use it in certain ways. See README.txt for details.


Version 3.56 tar.gz (2.1 mb)
Requires Python, and Pygame. Head to for the first, for the second.

You can also download the development version via CVS. While this version is usually more advanced than the latest version listed here, it can also have more bugs. The command is

cvs -z3 co dragon-hunt
Doing this obviously requires CVS.

Requirements: Anything that can run Python/Pygame. It has been tested on Windows and Linux. Performance is acceptable on a Pentium 233.
Source code is included.
