GemDropX:
---------

Another quick and dirty port is up ;-)

this is one of the better things i have played in a while, really fun puzzler
game.

Try to get to level 20 :-D


WHAT IS GEM DROP X?
-------------------
COMPARED TO OTHER GAMES
-----------------------
"Gem Drop X" is an interesting one-player puzzle game using the Simple
DirectMedia Layer (SDL) libraries.

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).

It was originally ported to X11, using SDL for sound and music.
Eventually, the Xlib graphics calls were removed and replaced with
SDL calls.

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.
Some people have compared it to "Tetris meets Space Invaders."


THE GAME
--------
KEYBOARD
--------
While in the game, you can use the arrow keys in the following way:

LEFT / RIGHT  -  Move the man left and right.  (He will wrap around K / L      

 at the edges of the screen.)

DOWN / UP     -  Grab gems and throw gems. Z / A

RETURN        -  Cause a row of gems to come down immediately.

MOUSE
-----
You can also use the mouse:

Clicking Left Or Right Of The Man      -  Moves the man left or right.
Left-Clicking Anywhere Above The Man   -  Grabs gems.
Right-Clicking Anywhere Above The Man  -  Throws gems.
