This is a collection of some (more or less) simple games for the AmiCygnix
Unix environment. Most games are board- or cardgames. Each game can be in-
stalled separately!


New in version 1.6
------------------

  * New game "Pioneers", a clone of "Settlers of Catan".

  * New versions:
    - Ace 1.4 instead of version 1.2. The card game "Spider" has been added and
      the card game "Solitaire" offers new possibilities.
      The GUI tool for starting the individual games has been revised and
      optimized for standalone start.
    - XEmeraldia 0.4.3 instead of version 0.4.1. The graphics have been
      optimized.
    - XGalaga 2.1.1.0 instead of version 2.0.34. The playing field is now bigger
      and a variation called "Hyperspace" is now included.
    - The xMahjongg GUI tool has been revised and optimized for standalone
      start.

  * All programs have been recompiled. Programs that require GTK+ 2 now use
    GTK+ 2.24.32.

  * All programs can now be started "Standalone".

  * The icon set has been updated. Thanks to Thomas Blatt!

  * BomberClone - A game like "Super Bomberman". With network support.

    Homepage: http://www.bomberclone.de


  * GLightOff - a simple (but not so easy to solve!) puzzle game. The goal is
                turning off all the lights on the board. GLightOff uses the GTK2
                toolkit.

    Homepage: http://glightoff.sourceforge.net


  * gSoko - a GTK+ clone of the famous Sokoban game. The goal of the game is to
            push all the boxes on the squares with a red pattern.

    Homepage: http://www.via.ecp.fr/~jm/gsoko.html


  * gTans - the Tangram is a chinese puzzle. The object is to put seven
            geometric shapes together so as to form a given outline.

    Homepage: No longer available


  * GtkAtlantic - a game like "Monopoly" (tm).

    GtkAtlantic is a network game. There is a server for local games, but a
    public server can also be used.
    For a local game, the server must first be started and then a client for
    each player.

    Local game:
    - Start the GtkAtlantik-Server via the panel menu or via the
      "Start_GtkAtlantic-Server_Standalone.bat" script, which is located in the
      "Cygnix:Software/GtkAtlantic-0.4.2" directory.
    - Then start a client and click "Enter". Start the client either via the
      panel menu or via the "Start_GtkAtlantic_Standalone.bat" script.
    - Then click on "Get games", select the local server in the list above and
      then click on "CREATE/JOIN GAME".

    Public game:
    - Start a client and click "Enter".
    - Click on "Refresh games", select a server in the list and then click on
      "CREATE/JOIN GAME".

    Repeat the above steps for each new player

  * Pioneers - a clone of the board game "Settlers of Catan".

    Pioneers is a network game. There is a server for local games, but a public
    server can also be used.
    For a local game, the server must first be started and then a client for
    each player.

    Local game:
      - Start the Pioneers server via the panel menu OR via the script
        "Start_Pioneers-Server_Standalone.bat", which is located in the
        directory "Cygnix:Software/Pioneers-14.1".
      - Then make the desired settings and start the server by clicking on
        "Start Server".
      - If the server was started "Standalone", it is recommended to start the
        client for a player via the script Start_Pioneers_Standalone.bat ".
        When starting from the desktop, click on "Launch Pioneers Client" in the
        server window.
      - More players can be added like this or you can start a computer player
        with "Add Computer Player".

      The local server can be registered publicly!

    Public game:
      - Start a client via the panel menu OR via the
        "Start_Pioneers_Standalone.bat" script, which is located in the
        "Cygnix:Software/Pioneers-14.1" directory.
      - Enter your name in the window that opens and then click on
        "Join Public Game".
        The server "pioneers.debian.net" does not seem to be online anymore,
        therefore select "pioneers.game-host.org".
      - Then select the game you want from the list and click "OK".

           animated tutorial.

                additional features.

  * XMahjongg - a solitaire game. The object is to remove all 144 Mah Jongg
                tiles from the playing area by matching them two at a time.

    For your convenience I wrote the launcher "xmahjongg-gui", where you can
    select the tile design, the board style, the background gfx and finally
    launch the game.
