       rockdodger - dodge and blow up rocks with your spaceship


       rockdodger [options]


       This manual page documents briefly the rockdodger game.

       Use  the  space  key to start a new game.  You have to dodge the rocks that come flying in
       from the right.  By shooting at them with your laser you can heat them until they explode.
       The shield makes you invincible while you keep it activated.  Both shield and laser have a
       limited power supply which recharges only slowly.

       Error messages (aka  software  failures)  are  usually  reported  by  a  so  called  "guru
       meditation".  The guru meditation will be displayed in the top of the screen in a blinking
       border. If this happens please send in a bug report and provide the colour of  the  border
       (red,  yellow,  green,  blue) and the two hex numbers after the hash ('#'). This will help
       greatly in locating the failure.
