NAME

       gemdropx - an interesting one-player puzzle game for X-Window

SYNOPSIS

       gemdropx [--help] [--version] [--usage] [--nomusic]

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page  was  written  for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
       because the original program does not have a manual page.  Instead,  it
       has documentation in /usr/share/doc/gemdropx/README.txt.gz

       gemdropx  is an interesting one-player puzzle game for X-Window.  It is
       a direct port of Gem Drop, an Atari 8-bit game written in  Action!   (a
       very  fast  C-  and  Pascal-like compiled language for the Atari).  The
       concept of the game Gem Drop is based on an arcade game for the  NeoGeo
       system called "Magical Drop III" by SNK.

       If you're familiar with games like Jewels, Klax, Bust-A-Move or Tetris,
       this game is similar to them all.  I consider it closest to Klax.
