NAME

       xjump - a jumping game for X

SYNOPSIS

       xjump [ -toolkitoption ] ... [ -private ] [ -graphic file ] [ -keymap ]
       xjump [ -help ]

DESCRIPTION

       Xjump is a jumping game where you are in a Falling Tower. The floor you
       are standing on is sinking with the rest of the building; you will  die
       once  the floor gives way (disappears under the bottom of the display).
       To survive, you have to jump  onto  the  upper  floors  of  the  tower.
       Because  the  entire  tower  is  sinking,  the  upper  floors will soon
       collapse, too, so you have to keep on jumping to higher floors.

       Your score is counted by how many floors you  jump  before  you  either
       fall  off  while  trying  to reach the next floor, or the floor you are
       standing on collapses.

OPTIONS

       -toolkitoption ...
              Specify X toolkit options (such as -geometry, -display, etc.).

       -private
              Use private colormap.

       -graphic FILE
              Use the XPM graphic file FILE for graphics.

       -keymap
              Read keymap directly.

       -help  Display a summary of command-line syntax.

GAME CONTROLS

       To begin the game, press the Space-bar from the highscore screen.

       Once the game begins, movement is controlled  by  the  Left  and  Right
       arrow keys. To jump, use the Up arrow key.

       Note  that  hitting  the Left or Right arrow keys many times will cause
       the player to go faster. You can use this to reach floors that are  far
       away.  But be careful not to jump too far and miss! You can also change
       your speed while jumping through midair.  If  your  reflexes  are  fast
       enough, you can salvage a bad jump this way. Good luck!

       To quit the game, press shift-Q.
