       rockdodger - dodge and blow up rocks with your spaceship


       rockdodger [options]


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

       Use  the  space  key  to start a new game.  You have to dodge the rocks
       that come flying in from the right.  By  shooting  at  them  with  your
       laser  you  can  heat  them  until  they explode.  The shield makes you
       invincible while you keep it activated.  Both shield and laser  have  a
       limited power supply which recharges only slowly.
