       ninvaders - ncurses version of space invaders




       In  short, this is a space invaders game written for the ncurses terminal control library.
       It uses ASCII art to draw everything, and you can play  it  just  about  anywhere.   Space
       Invaders over dialup!

       To  play  the  game,  simply run the program.  You will be placed in the game arena with a
       large block of aliens.  To move your gun pod (at the bottom of the screen)  use  the  left
       and  right  arrow keys.  To shoot, press space.  You can move faster if you hold the arrow
       keys down.

       The object of the game is to shoot all  the  aliens  (the  multi-coloured  moving  things)
       before  they  reach  the  ground.  Since these aliens aren't friendly (which is why you're
       trying to stop them) they will shoot back.  Dodge the descending  bullets  or  hang  about
       under the large stationary blocks for cover.
