       xgalaga - X11 version of the famous Galaga game


       xgalaga  [-scores]  [-display  display] [-mouse] [-keyboard] [-nosound]
       [-b] [-noclipmask] [-nouseor] [-nostars]

       xgalaga-hyperspace [-scores] [-display  display]  [-mouse]  [-keyboard]
       [-nosound] [-b] [-noclipmask] [-nouseor] [-nostars]


       It’s  Galaga,  you  know  how to play Galaga, stop bothering me.  (Ship
       follows the mouse, button fires.  Auto-fire by holding it down, so  no-
       one accuses me of breaking their mouse!)

       The  xgalaga-hyperspace version features some new weapons and different
       gameplay. Press the x key to use your shields in this version.


       -scores Prints out the high score file and exits

       -display host:dpy
               Set your display

       -mouse  Use mouse control (same as ’m’).

               Use keyboard control (same as ’k’).  If you have a joystick  it
               can also be used if you select keyboard control.

               Turn sound OFF

       -b      Turn  buffered  mode off, use this if it runs too slowly.  Will
               cause flicker, maybe lots, maybe only a little.

               Don’t use clip  masks  for  drawing  (affects  unbuffered  mode

               Don’t draw using OR mode.

               Don’t draw stars in the background.

       Combinations of the last four options can be used to get faster drawing
       if the video card can’t keep up with the required 30  frames/sec.   The
       fastest drawing will come from

              xgalaga -b -noclipmask -nouseor -nostars


       p - pauses

       q - end this game

       b - Toggle buffering (flicker vs. speed.)

       o - Toggle OR mode.  Don’t use this, it sucks.

       m - Use mouse control. Note that you may switch in mid-game.

       k - Use keyboard control
