       powermanga - shoot-'em-up game


       powermanga [OPTIONS]


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

       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.


       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!


       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!)
