       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.

       For more information, see the "How to Play" screen in the game.


              Start   the  game  without  Psyco  support,  for  debugging  and
