Ubuntu – Installing tar.gz when there is no configure file

compilinggames

I've downloaded a tar.gz for the game Solar 2, and extracted it. Frustratingly, there is no configure file for it, nor is there an INSTALL or a README file. If I skip straight to the "make" command, it tells me there's no targets specified and no makefile found. I'm also having the same problem with another game I've downloaded, NightSky.

Not quite sure how to proceed. I can't find any official documentation or anyone else having these problems. Any suggestions?

From the screenshot you provided here in a comment, I think you just need to run the file named solar2.sh and it will handle the rest.
