       snipe2d — Orbital Eunuchs Sniper is an overhead shooting game




       This manual page documents briefly the snipe2d game.

       This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does
       not have a manual page.

       Orbital Eunuchs Sniper is an overhead shooting game. You (the Eunuch on the orbital  laser
       platform)  are tasked with protecting the VIPs (blue) from the terrorists (red)!  You view
       a city from overhead, from the point of a view of an orbiting satellite.  Your laser takes
       some time to recharge.
