NAME

       kobodl - Kobo Deluxe, an enhanced version of the scrolling game XKobo

SYNOPSIS

       kobodl [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

       Kobo  Deluxe  is  a 3’rd person  scrolling 2D shooter with a simple and
       responsive control system  - which you’ll need to tackle  the  tons  of
       enemy  ships that shoot at you,  chase you, circle around you shooting,
       or even  launch other ships at you,  while you’re  trying  to   destroy
       the   labyrinth   shaped   bases.   There  are 50 action packed  levels
       with  smoothly increasing  difficulty, and  different  combinations  of
       enemies that require different tactics to be dealt with successfully.

       Kobo  Deluxe  has  an  improved  graphics  engine  that  can  take full
       advantage  of any video  frame rate,  without affecting the game  logic
       and  timing.  It  also adds sound effects, flashy "dashboard" graphics,
       full-screen mode and various  other features  expected  from  a  modern
       game.   Kobo  Deluxe is based on SDL,  and therefore builds and runs on
       all major operating systems,  as well as some more unusual platforms.

       In short,  Kobo Deluxe is loads of  classical arcade style fun for just
       about any machine with graphics and sound!

CONTROLS

       The  ship can be controlled with the keyboard, or optionally a mouse or
       joystick. With the keyboard, the arrow keys  move  the  ship,  and  the
       shift key shoots. Escape can be used to exit the game.
