OpenTyrian is an arcade-style vertical scrolling shooter. The story is set in the year 20,031 where you play as Trent Hawkins, a skilled fighter-pilot employed to fight Microsol and save the galaxy.

February 2007 the Pascal source code for Tyrian was licensed for a small group of developers to re-write it in C, in a project named OpenTyrian, licensed under the GNU General Public License. Following that announcement, in April 2007 Daniel Cook announced the free availability of his Tyrian artwork under generic liberal terms.

Excellent game and this version is good since it doesn't require dos and runs good, but there is at least one issue. The aspect ratio should be 4:3 except it's stretched wider, and it also looks like it's that way in the screenshots. In this game it's not as much of a problem since it's a vertical scroller, and I even played a while myself before noticing it, until I started looking at circular objects more, but I still think it should be at the correct ratio. Also when I tried this with Windows 7 the fullscreen option didn't work. For now I'll just stick with the dos version for Tyrion 2000. Dosbox has the option to fix the aspect ratio. This game is still great either way.

One of the best old school shoot em ups for the PC, along with Raptor. Excellent music, lots of weapons, a nice upgrade system and keen graphics.

Works great with a generic USB controller too.

Anyone else have problems with it acting like the up arrow is stuck down? Makes this unplayable.
