       scavenger - a plattform game for X




       Scavenger  is  like  Lode  Runner.  You’ve  got to run around gathering
       objects while avoiding enemies. You can dig down through  some  of  the
       blocks  to  get  at  buried objects. After you’ve collected everything,
       ladders may appear.  To finish the level you’ve got to exit through the
       top  of  the  screen. If an enemy falls into a dug brick, he is stunned
       for a while. If the brick fills in with him in it, he is killed, and he
       will reappear at the top of the screen.

       This  version  has  a level editor for designing your own levels, and a
       graphics editor for drawing your own artwork.


       This command has no options.


       The default control is with the number pad keys 4-9:

        Dig left     Move up     Dig right
            7           8           9
            4           5           6
        Move left   Move down    Move right

       As of version 1.3 you can remap the controls. In demo mode hit space to
       get  to  the  menu, then hit F10 to remap the keys. For each key if you
       hit escape the key is unchanged.

       F8    Skip to next level k     Kill player (useful if he’s trapped) ESC
       Exit back to demo mode Pause Pause game
