       xjump - a jumping game for X


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


       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.


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

              Use private colormap.

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

              Read keymap directly.

       -help  Display a summary of command-line syntax.


       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.
