XSpacewarp revisited

Some months ago I created a Slackware package for XSpacewarp, a game originally from 1977.
A fellow Slackware enthusiast wrote a man-page for this little game and found an “app-defaults” file on the internet, so that many settings in the game can now be customized.
I played a bit with the settings and now my spaceship is green, the Jovians are red and the stars are yellow. I never thought I would play a color version if this game! :)

Here is an example what the game looks like now on my computer:

XSpaceWarp_03

I submitted a new SlackBuild for the package to SlackBuilds.org and uploaded new versions of the pre-built packages for i486, x86_64 and arm architectures to my site.
