       slingshot - simple 2D shooting strategy game set in space, with gravity




       This manual page documents briefly the slingshot command.

       slingshot  is  a  two  dimensional, turn based simulation-strategy game set in the gravity
       fields of several planets. It is a highly addictive game, and never the same from round to
       round due to its randomly generated playing fields.

       It  is  a  deceptively  simple game, the goal is to shoot the other spacecraft through the
       field of planets, but their gravity makes it tricky. The effects of the gravity mean  that
       although it's easy to learn how to play, and to enjoy playing, it could take a lifetime to
       thoroughly master.

       In order to hit your opponent, you can rotate you ship to aim in any  direction,  and  you
       can  change  the power with which your projectile is launched - the initial speed at which
       it flies.


       This program has no command line options.
