angrydd - a falling block puzzle game
angrydd [ --debug ]
In Angry, Drunken Dwarves, you are an angry, drunken dwarf. Why are you
so angry? Who knows. But you’ve decided to take your aggression out on
other dwarves, by dropping gems on their heads. Lots of gems.
You have your own supply of gems, which will slowly fall from the top
of the screen. As gems reach the bottom, they will land and sit in
place. If you put enough gems of the same color in a rectangle shape,
they will merge and form a crystal.
Less common are break gems, which are circular. When you drop a break
gem on a gem or crystal of the same color, it will destroy any gems of
that color adjacent to it. Crystals are worth much more than an equal
number of regular gems.
