I wrote this game starring my cousin Colton Brengosz. I think I was reading Teach Yourself Game Programming in 21 Days at the time. It's a very simple sprite-based game where you shoot darts at the bad guys. It's impossible to die.
It looks like I was using some Borland IDE to build it. The download includes a compiled executable.
The levels originally had backgrounds that I took from an After Dark screensaver package. After Dark installed a bunch of tileable bitmaps for you to use as Windows backgrounds. I don't have permission to redistribute them so I replaced them with blank black graphics. The level names make more sense with the original backgrounds. I can describe what the files were:
The graphics and level names repeat after level 9.
