       snipe2d — Orbital Eunuchs Sniper is an overhead shooting game




       This manual page documents briefly the snipe2d game.

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

       Orbital Eunuchs Sniper is an overhead shooting game. You (the Eunuch on
       the  orbital laser platform) are tasked with protecting the VIPs (blue)
       from the terrorists (red)!  You view a city  from  overhead,  from  the
       point  of  a view of an orbiting satellite.  Your laser takes some time
       to recharge.
