       armagetronad - a 3D Tron-like high speed game


       armagetronad  [-h,  --help]  [-v,  --version]  [--doc]  [-f,  --fullscreen] [-w, --window,
       --windowed] [--fastforward] [--benchmark] [--record] [--playback]


       The rules are simple: you ride a lightcycle (a kind of motorbike that  can  only  turn  90
       degrees at a time, leaves a wall behind and cannot be stopped). Avoid running into a wall.
       Make your opponent run into a wall.  This idea comes from the 1982 Disney movie "Tron".

       One thing is different than in other Tron clones: you can accelerate.  However, there is a
       catch.  The only way to accelerate is to drive close to player walls. This allows for some
       interesting tactics. Every time you make a turn, you lose 5% of your speed -- so don't  be
       too nervous, speed is your only resource against other players!

       First  thing  you shold do is go into the "Player Menu" to set your name and your keyboard
       and mouse configuration. Then, go into the "Game Menu" and  start  a  single  player  game
       against  one  AI  opponent  (the  game  mode  does not really matter here). Then, get some
       friends together and try the multiplayer modes!

       SHIFT-ESC is the "boss key" and quits Armagetron as fast as possible.
