NAME

rRootage - an abstract arcade shooter

SYNOPSIS

rrootage [-lowres|-mediumres|-highres] [-nosound] [-window] [-fullscreen] [-reverse] [-nowait] [-accframe]

DESCRIPTION

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

USAGE

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 level.
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 corner.

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".

OPTIONS

These command line options are available:
-lowres
Low resolution mode.
-mediumres
Medium resolution mode.
-highres
High resolution mode (default).
-nosound
Disable sound.
-window
Launch the game in a window, rather than fullscreen.
-fullscreen
Launch the game in fullscreen mode.
-reverse
Reverse the fire key and the special key.
-nowait
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.
-accframe
Use the alternative frame rate management algorithm. (If you have a problem with the frame rate, try this option.)

FILES
