       rRootage is an arcade style shooting game. Avoid the barrage of bullets
       while using your laser to destroy the enemy’s battle ship.


       You  can  play  the game with a keyboard or a joystick. On the keyboard
       the following keys are used:

        - Movement    Arrow keys
        - Fire        Z
        - Special     X
        - Pause       P
        - Leave Game  Escape

       In the initial screen, use X to choose the mode,  and  Z  to  select  a

       The game has the following modes:

   Normal Mode
       This  is  the standard game mode. Your ship slows down while your laser
       is being fired. The special key releases a bomb, which  destroys  enemy
       bullets.  The number of bombs you have is displayed in the bottom-right

   PSY Mode
       When bullets graze your ship the graze meter, which is displayed in the
       bottom-right  corner, increases. When the meter becomes full, your ship
       is temporarily invincible. The special key increases the  range  within
       which bullets graze your ship, but also slows your ship down.

   IKA Mode
       Your ship has two modes, white and black, and the enemy bullets come in
       white and black varieties. You can absorb bullets with the same  colour
       as  the  mode of your ship, and they will be converted into lasers. The
       special key switches between white and black mode.

   GW Mode
       Your ship has a bullet reflector, which you activate using the  special
       key.   However, you can only use it while the reflector meter, shown in
       the bottom right corner, displays "OK".


       These command line options are available:

              Low resolution mode.

              Medium resolution mode (default).

              High resolution mode.

              Disable sound.

              Launch the game in a window, rather than fullscreen.

              Launch the game in fullscreen mode.

              Reverse the fire key and the special key.

              When there are a large number of bullets on the screen, the game
              is  slowed  down. This option prevents this slowdown so that the
              game speed is constant.

              Use the alternative frame rate  management  algorithm.  (If  you
              have a problem with the frame rate, try this option.)


              This  is  where rRootage records which levels you have completed
              in which modes.
