NAME

gemdropx - an interesting one-player puzzle game for X-Window

SYNOPSIS

gemdropx [--help] [--version] [--usage] [--nomusic]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in /usr/share/doc/gemdropx/README.txt.gz
 
gemdropx is an interesting one-player puzzle game for X-Window. It is a direct port of Gem Drop, an Atari 8-bit game written in Action! (a very fast C- and Pascal-like compiled language for the Atari). The concept of the game Gem Drop is based on an arcade game for the NeoGeo system called "Magical Drop III" by SNK.
 
If you're familiar with games like Jewels, Klax, Bust-A-Move or Tetris, this game is similar to them all. I consider it closest to Klax.
