Seems the depends has changed to sdl2_mixer, had to install it before it would run.

Paths and filenames for downloads have all changed.

For example, the download link on the site now points to:

http://www.laserbrainstudios.com/download.php?name=asciiseclinux32

The bug mentioned by vladimir1922 seems to occur because the data/options.txt file is created without content during the install process. While I think the end is computer specific, writing the following (default stuff, I don't think it's compter specific) into it seems to work while automatically generating the computer specific bit. If you change the last 'F' to 'T' it runs in full screen mode:
6
3
6
5
5
40
24
F
T
F

I was also wondering if there is a reason why "/usr/share/asciisec/asciisec" is not installed with "-m 2755 -g games" (without the quotes) to allow one to play without being in the games group, and why "/usr/share/asciisec/log.txt" and "/usr/share/asciisec/data/options.txt" aren't removed in pre_remove() in the .install script.

This package gives a bug that doesn't affect you if you directly download the game from the website (even if it is the same version): When piloting your spaceship, this bugged version won't keep the ship centred on screen, so it becomes near impossible to control it as it will just fly away from the viewable area.

Names the downloaded files properly. Uses $url to shorten a few lines. Also changed my email address. No changes to the content of the package.

@hollunder: i'm testing all my pkgbuilds but only on the date of upload. if anything changes on the server, i won't receive notification.

Would have been nice if you had actually tested the PKGBUILD. It downloads the .cgi.
Here's the actual address to one of the tarballs http://www.asciisector.net/download/asciisec0.7.1.2-linux64.tar.gz
