moon-buggy [-hnsV] [--help] [--no-title] [--show-scores] [--version]


Moon-buggy is a simple character graphics game, where you drive some kind of car across the moon´s surface. Unfortunately there are dangerous craters there. Fortunately your car can jump over them!


The program understands the following command line options. -h, --help shows a short usage message. -m, --mesg disable write access to your terminal by other users, so your boss can´t disturb your game play with the help of "write" or "finger". -n, --no-title skips the title screen. -s, --show-scores shows the current highscore list and exits. -V, --version prints the program´s version to standard output and exits.


The moon-buggy is controlled by a couple of keys, which are described near the bottom of the screen. Most important are the following keys. SPC, j makes your car jump. The length of a jump is fixed and you can only start a new jump, while the wheels have contact to the ground. a, l fires the mining laser. The laser is used to remove stones, which may block your way. q quits the game prematurely. But you still keep your score and may enter the high‐ score list.


The following files on your system are related to moon-buggy. /usr/games/moon-buggy the moon-buggy executable. /var/games/moon-buggy/mbscore the global score file $HOME/.mbscore the local score file. This is used, if moon-buggy has no write access to the global score file.
