NAME
vodovod - lead the water from the house to the storage tank SYNOPSIS
vodovod DESCRIPTION
Vodovod is a free game, released under GNU GPL license. Graphics and programming are done by Milan Babuskov. This is an over-weekend project for now, so don't expect miracles. However, game is completely playable. The goal of the game is to reach the highest possible score. You get a limited number of pipes on each level and need to combine them to lead the water from the house at the top of the screen to the storage tank at the bottom. For each pipe water goes through, you get 20 points and if you fill the cross-pipe both ways, you get 60 points. At end of each level, you are awarded depending on the skill level: * Beginner: 100 points * Toolman: 100 points + number of pipes remaining * Master plumber: 100 points + 2 x number of pipes remaining Some of the levels have obstacles where you cannot place pipes, checkpoints through which the water must go and holes in the ground that slow the flow. Select HELP from the main menu to get more info. The game is playable with joystick/joypad: just move it and press buttons when you go to Options -> Configure controls USAGE
The goal of the game is to use pipes to connect the house at the top of the screen with the tank at the bottom. You have time to construct the initial pipeline before the man enters the house. For each level you get a limited number of pipes, so use them wisely. If you make a mistake, you can place another pipe over it. There are certain special blocks in the map: * Blocked Area - You cannot place pipes on these fields. * Checkpoint - Your pipeline must go through this field. * Hole in the ground - Slows down the flow.

NAME
tetris -- the game of tetris SYNOPSIS
tetris [-ps] [-k keys] [-l level] DESCRIPTION
The tetris command runs display-based game which must be played on a CRT terminal. The object is to fit the shapes together forming complete rows, which then vanish. When the shapes fill up to the top, the game ends. You can optionally select a level of play, or custom-select control keys. The default level of play is 2. The default control keys are as follows: j move left k rotate 1/4 turn counterclockwise l move right <space> drop p pause q quit The options are as follows: -k The default control keys can be changed using the -k option. The keys argument must have the six keys in order, and, remember to quote any space or tab characters from the shell. For example: tetris -l 2 -k 'jkl pq' will play the default games, i.e. level 2 and with the default control keys. The current key settings are displayed at the bottom of the screen during play. -l Select a level of play. -s Display the top scores. -p Switch on previewing of the shape that will appear next. PLAY
At the start of the game, a shape will appear at the top of the screen, falling one square at a time. The speed at which it falls is deter- mined directly by the level: if you select level 2, the blocks will fall twice per second; at level 9, they fall 9 times per second. (As the game goes on, things speed up, no matter what your initial selection.) When this shape ``touches down'' on the bottom of the field, another will appear at the top. You can move shapes to the left or right, rotate them counterclockwise, or drop them to the bottom by pressing the appropriate keys. As you fit them together, completed horizontal rows vanish, and any blocks above fall down to fill in. When the blocks stack up to the top of the screen, the game is over. SCORING
You get one point for every block you fit into the stack, and one point for every space a block falls when you hit the drop key. (Dropping the blocks is therefore a good way to increase your score.) Your total score is the product of the level of play and your accumulated points -- 200 points on level 3 gives you a score of 600. Each player gets at most one entry on any level, for a total of nine scores in the high scores file. Players who no longer have accounts are limited to one score. Also, scores over 5 years old are expired. The exception to these conditions is that the highest score on a given level is always kept, so that following generations can pay homage to those who have wasted serious amounts of time. The score list is produced at the end of the game. The printout includes each player's overall ranking, name, score, and how many points were scored on what level. Scores which are the highest on a given level are marked with asterisks ``*''. FILES
