PIPENIGHTDREAMS(6)               Games Manual               PIPENIGHTDREAMS(6)



NAME
       pipenightdreams - Just another pipe trip (PipeDream clon).


SYNOPSIS
        pipenightdreams [--datadir <DATADIR>] [--fullscreen]


DESCRIPTION
        pipenightdreams is a PipeDream style game. The objetive of the game is
       to carry liquid from some point to the exit using  different  kinds  of
       pipes.  On  each level there is a minimum number of required pipes that
       should be at least reached for it to be completed.

       The score is increased by using as many pipes as possible  an  by  col-
       lecting  various  bonus  tokens  making  the  liquid pass through their
       pipes. There are also life bonus and, hopefully soon, "freeze tokens".

       The game is not exactly a copy of PipeDream. It's  based  only  on  the
       facts  I  remember  and  on many other things which have been added, or
       changed hoping for making it better.


   KEYS
       The game is entirely played using the keyboard and the key layout is as
       follows:

       SPACE  Puts the next pipe where the pointer is.

       CURSOR KEYS
              Move the pointer.

       ENTER  Speeds up the liquid (Avoids skillful players to get bored).

       ESC    Goes back to the main screen or exits.


   BONUS TYPES
       The various types of bonus tokens are the following:


       LIFE BONUS
              The purple one with a "L" on it.

       SUPER BONUS
              The red one with a "B" on it.

       ULTRA BONUS
              The blue one.

       HYPER BONUS
              The green one.


OPTIONS
        --datadir  <&lt;CUSTOM  DATA  DIR>&gt;  is used when the data directory is not
       the default one ( /usr/share/games/pipenightdreams if installed from  a
       rpm  package and  /usr/local/share/games/pipenightdreams when installed
       by compiling the source package).

        --fullscreen  switchs to fullscreen mode.


BUGS
       Not known.
