NAME

       powermanga - shoot-'em-up game

SYNOPSIS

       powermanga [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

       Powermanga  is  a shoot'em up game; you will have to fight more than 60
       different types of enemies.

       You start with a ship, and enemies  show  up  throwing  bombs  at  you.
       Shoot  them, and get better weapons for your ship (otherwise, you won't
       go too far!)

       To get better weapons, you will have  to  catch  green  and  red  gems.
       Whenever you pick a green gem, the highlighted option at the right side
       of the screen goes up one unit.

       The options are, from the bottom to the top:

       - More speed

       - More energy to your ship
              If you get out of energy, you lose your ship. Losing  your  ship
              means  either  going  back to the ship you were using before you
              "upgraded' it, or dying if you had no  previous  ship!  You  can
              check your energy level in the little bar at the bottom (the bar
              at the right is yours; the one at the left is your  enemy's,  in
              case you're fighting a big one)

       - Several options for different weapons

       - The last option gets you a better ship

       If the current option is "more power to the leftside straight weapons",
       for example, you may select it and they will immediately take effect.

       If the current option is already the last, and you pick a green or  red
       gem,  you  will   go  back  to the first one (but you will get an extra
       side-weapon). Also, whenever you pick an  option,  the  current  option
       goes back to the first one.

THE GEMS

       During the game, you will sometimes see gems falling down when an enemy
       is destroyed. You may catch those gems:

       - Green gems
              As we said before, makes the current option go up one unit.

       - Red gems
              Similar to the green gem, but it increases 2 units instead of 1.

       - Pink gems
              Gives energy to your ship. If your  energy  is  at  the  maximum
              level,  this  gem  will  give you a full blast that destroys all
              enemies currently on the screen.

       - Blue gems
              They multiply the score points for each destroyed enemy by 2. If
              you  get  the blue gem again, the score points are multiplied by
              4; you can see the "2x" or "4x" blinking at the sidebar.

       - Yellow gems
              These give  you  protection  balls.  If  you  already  have  six
              protection  balls and you get another yellow gem, you will get a
              special weapon!

CHANGING SHIPS

       When you get a better ship, you will be able to accumulate more energy,
       becoming  more  resistant  to  attacks. But whenever you "upgrade" your
       ship, a few things will happen:

       - Protection
              You will lose all your protection balls (let's say  they're  not
              "compatible" with your new ship).

       - Weapons
              You  will  lose  one  "degree"  in your weapons (if you had used
              green gems to get the best possible weapon for shooting straight
              forward, for example, after upgrading your ship you will have to
              get one more green gem if you want your weapons at  the  maximum
              power.)

       - Score
              If  your  score  was  getting  multiplied by 2 or 4, it won't be
              anymore (go get more blue gems!)
