NAME

galaxis - rescue lifeboats lost in interstellar space

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

galaxis

DESCRIPTION

Lifeboats from a crippled interstellar liner are adrift in a starfield. To find them, you can place probes that look in all eight compass directions and tell you how many lifeboats they see. If you drop a probe directly on a lifeboat it will be revealed immediately. Your objective: find the lifeboats as quickly as possible, before the stranded passengers run out of oxygen!

This is a UNIX-hosted, curses-based clone of the nifty little Macintosh freeware game Galaxis. It doesnt have the super-simple, point-and-click interface of the original, but compensates by automating away some of the games simpler deductions.

To run it, simply type ‘galaxis. The game screen includes a description of all commands, including ‘? for detailed help.

AUTHORS

The Macintosh game was designed and written by Christian Franz <cfranz@iiic.ethz.ch>. This version was cloned by Eric S. Raymond <esr@snark.thyrsus.com>. See ESRs home page at \m[blue]http://www.catb.org/~esr/\m[] for updates and other resources.

BUGS

This really ought to be an X game, but that would have been too much like work.
