       efp - Escape from Pong NES game


       nes [options] /usr/share/nes/efp.nes | /usr/share/nes/efp-rev.nes


       This  manual  page  documents  briefly the game Escape from Pong.  This
       manual page  was  written  for  the  Debian  distribution  because  the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       efp  is a game of pong for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) with
       a twist.  In this version you control the ball, and your  objective  is
       to  escape  the  board  safely.   You will need to fake out the paddle,
       fight against gravity, and avoid the (red) wall of death to survive.

       The two ROMs efp and efp-rev differ only in the direction of the thrust
       when  using  the arrow keys.  This is so that you can use whichever way
       is more comfortable for you.


       You will need an emulator for the NES  in  order  to  play  this  game.
       Unfortunately,  I  have  found  that it doesn’t work correctly with all
       emulators.  One that I have tested is FCE Ultra, so try  that  if  your
       regular  one  doesn’t  work.   See /usr/share/doc/efp/README.Debian for
       more details.
