       Rafkill - a vertical shoot’em-up


       rafkill [ -l ] [ -w ] [ -g<speed> ] [ -h ]


       Rafkill  is a clone of Raptor: Call of the Shadows, a classic shoot’em-
       up game.

       You have a bird’s eye view of the playing  field,  which  is  an  alien
       world,  and  your job is to destroy the enemies that are flying towards
       you shooting bullets. The score  lets  you  buy  life,  shield,  better
       weapons or even new spaceships.

       Killing  enemies  gives  you  money,  or  score. If you kill a group of
       enemies, you might get a handy coin which gives you more  score.  There
       are other powerups, so look for them too.

       The  score lets you buy more weapons and hull parts. There are 5 weapon
       groups and a few weapons in each group,  but  you  can  only  have  one
       weapon per group except for the accessory weapons in which you can have
       up to 3 weapons. Once you buy 3, you cannot buy any more. There  are  3
       hulls, which have each higher life and shield than the previous one and
       gives you access to a new set of weapons. Buying a new  hull  does  not
       throw away your weapons, but it does throw away your accessory weapons.
