NAME

        armagetron - A 3D Tron-like high speed game
 

SYNOPSIS

        armagetron
 

DESCRIPTION

        The  rules  are simple: you ride a lightcycle (a kind of motorbike that
        can only turn 90 degrees at a time, leaves a wall behind and cannot  be
        stopped).   Avoid  running  into a wall.  Make your opponent run into a
        wall.  (Just in case you do not know: this idea is stolen from the Dis‐
        ney  movie "Tron" from 1982 (did they steal the idea from someone else?
        I don’t know).)
 
        One thing is different than in other Tron clones: You  can  accelerate.
        Oh, not by pressing an acceleration button, that would not be new.  You
        accelerate by driving close to walls (Only player walls count, the  rim
        has  no such effect.)  That allows some interesting tactics (of course,
        the AI players are not smart enough for that).  Every time you  make  a
        turn,  you lose 5% of your speed, so don’t be to nervous; speed is your
        only resource against other players!
 
        First thing you shold do is go into the "Player Menu",  set  your  name
        and  your  keyboard  and  mouse configuration.  Then, go into the "Game
        Menu" and start a single player game against one AI opponent (the  game
        mode does not really matter here).  Then, get some friends together and
        try the multiplayer modes!
 
        SHIFT-ESC is the "boss key" and quits Armagetron as fast as possible.
        Armagetron is documented fully by the provided HTML docs,  found  under
        /usr/share/doc/armagetron/.
