NNAAMMEE
       pipenightdreams - Just another pipe trip (PipeDream clon).

        ppiippeenniigghhttddrreeaammss [--datadir <DATADIR>]


DDEESSCCRRIIPPTTIIOONN
        ppiippeenniigghhttddrreeaammss is a PipeDream style game.  The  objetive
       of the game is to carry liquid from some point to the exit
       using different kinds of pipes. On each level there  is  a
       minimum  number  of required pipes that should be at least
       reached for it to be completed.

       The score is increased by using as many pipes as  possible
       an  by  collecting  various bonus tokens making the liquid
       pass through their places. There are also life bonus  and,
       hopefully soon, "freeze tokens".

       The  game  is  not exactly a copy of PipeDream. It's based
       only on the facts I remember  and  in  many  other  things
       which  have  been  added,  or changed hoping for making it
       better.


   KKEEYYSS
       The game is entirely played using the keyboard and the key
       layout is as follows:

       SPACE  Puts the next pipe where the pointer is.

       CURSOR KEYS
              Move the pointer.

       ENTER  Speeds  up  the  liquid (Avoids skillful players to
              get bored).

       ESC    Goes back to the main screen or exits.


   BBOONNUUSS TTYYPPEESS
       The various types of bonus tokens are the following:


       LIFE BONUS

       SUPER BONUS
              The red one with a "B" on it.

       ULTRA BONUS
              The blue one.
