       The Physics Centipede Invasion Smashup waggly shmup, ’Mu-cade’

       Mu-cade  is  another  shoot-em-up game by Kenta Cho. In this game Kenta
       has introduced physics into his formula  of  hardcore  shooting  games.
       Similar  in  some  ways to Asteroids and Nibbles, the playing area is a
       rectangular arena in which vessel-snakes have  only  one  idea  at  the
       head:  expelling the others into the vacuum. You incarnate one of them,
       and you’ll  quickly  realize  the  subtlety  of  the  goal:  your  tail
       lengthens as you destroy your enemies.


       These command-line options are available:

       -brightness n
              Set the brightness of the screen. (n = 0 - 100, default = 100)

       -res x y
              Set the screen resolution to (x, y). (default = 640, 480)

              Stop the sound.

              Launch the game in a window.

              Launch the game in fullscreen mode.

              Exchange a shot key and a cut off key.

       -rotatestick2 n
              Rotate the direction of the stick2 in n degrees.

              Reverse the direction of the stick2.

              Disable the input of the stick2.

              Use  the input of axis 5 to fire shots and axis 3 to cut off the
              tail. (for Xbox 360 wired controller)


       Keep your ship from falling down and push enemies out of the way.


       Move    Arrow / Num / [WASD] / Stick1 (Axis 1, 2)

       Fire shots / Hold direction
               [Z][L-Ctrl][R-Ctrl][.] / Trigger 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11
               [IJKL] / Stick2 (Axis 3 or 5, 4)

              Hold a key to open automatic fire and hold the  direction  of  a
              ship. Tap a key to take a turn while firing.

               You  can  also fire shots with the second stick. (If you have a
              problem with the direction of the  stick2,  try  ’-rotatestick2’
              and    ’-reversestick2’   options.   e.g.   ’-rotatestick2   -90
              -reversestick2’) (If you are using Xbox  360  wired  controller,
              use ’-enableaxis5’ option.)

       Cut off the tail

               [/][Return][Space] / Trigger 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12

              Cut  off  the  tail of your ship. This action also wipes out all
              bullets and you obtain powerful shots for a while.

       Pause   [P]

       Exit / Return to the title

       Tail multiplier:

       The tail of your ship becomes longer when you push an enemy out and you
       get a score multiplier.

       Extra ship:

       You earn an extra ship 50,000 and every 200,000 points.
