SYNOPSIS

moon-buggy [-hnsV] [--help] [--no-title] [--show-scores] [--version]

DESCRIPTION

Moon-buggy is a simple character graphics game, where you drive some kind of car across the moon's surface. Unfortunately there are dangerous craters there. Fortunately your car can jump over them!

OPTIONS

The program understands the following command line options.
-h, --help shows a short usage message.
-m, --mesg disable write access to your terminal by other users, so your boss can't disturb your game play with the help of "write" or "finger".
-n, --no-title
  skips the title screen.
-s, --show-scores
  shows the current highscore list and exits.
-V, --version
  prints the program's version to standard output and exits.

KEYS

The moon-buggy is controlled by a couple of keys, which are described near the bottom of the screen. Most important are the following keys.
SPC, j makes your car jump. The length of a jump is fixed and you can only start a new jump, while the wheels have contact to the ground.
a, l fires the mining laser. The laser is used to remove stones, which may block your way.
q quits the game prematurely. But you still keep your score and may enter the highscore list.

FILES

The following files on your system are related to moon-buggy.
/usr/local/bin/moon-buggy
  the moon-buggy executable.
/var/games/moon-buggy/mbscore

$HOME/.mbscore
