is a fast action game designed for use with the X window system.
The goal in
is to pick up all the gold pieces and then go to the next level
without getting eaten by one of the bad guys. The gold pieces are

option sets the level number for starting the game.
This may be any integer greater than 0. By default, the game starts
at level 1. The
options sets the game speed. A value of 1 is very slow and a value of
10 is fast. The default value is 5. The
option is used to select a world name. A world is a distinct set of
numbered levels. Any valid file name may be used as the world name.
Different worlds may be used to allow users to control private sets of
options assign player movement input and output scripts. These can be
used for building solutions to levels. The script controls only player
movement. The bad guy movement has been made to be completely
deterministic. The scripts can be edited or concatenated, but they
are not in a particularly intelligible form. By taking input from one
script and simultaneously sending output to another script, a new
script can be generated which starts as the old script and has new
commands appended to it.
the following keyboard commands may be used:
<space>,R11 - stop
a,j,left arrow - move left
