Linux Snipes project is a text-based maze game based on an old DOS game. You are in a maze with a number of enemies (the "snipes") and a few "hives" which create more of the enemies. Your job is to kill the snipes and their hives before they get the best of you. 26 "option levels" let you change characteristics of the game such as whether or not diagonal shots bounce off the walls. 10 levels of difficulty (only partially implemented) let you build your skills gradually. Normal game play is done on the text-mode console. Playing in an xterm or over a telnet connection is possible, but restricts you to pressing one key at a time. As a result, you cant move and fire at the same time, and you cant move or fire diagonally. NEW: There is now native X support, but it is somewhat slow. Unlike the version of Snipes included in NetWare 2.x and NetWare Lite, this version does not currently include network/multiplayer support. Network support will probably be added at some point in the future. Whats New in This Release: - Keyboard mapping for raw keyboard mode is now determined by calling dumpkeys(1). - This is a fix for Debian bug #37662. Note that it will not give optimal results with Dvorak key mappings, for example. Also, it means that dumpkeys(1) is required for raw keyboard mode to work, but I assume that dumpkeys(1) is provided with most linux distributions. Finally, this is untested on any machine other than my personal intel box..
