NAME
       angrydd - a falling block puzzle game

SYNOPSIS
       angrydd [ --debug ]

DESCRIPTION
       In Angry, Drunken Dwarves, you are an angry, drunken dwarf. Why are you
       so angry? Who knows. But you've decided to take your aggression out on
       other dwarves, by dropping gems on their heads. Lots of gems.

       You have your own supply of gems, which will slowly fall from the top
       of the screen. As gems reach the bottom, they will land and sit in
       place. If you put enough gems of the same color in a rectangle shape,
       they will merge and form a crystal.

       Less common are break gems, which are circular. When you drop a break
       gem on a gem or crystal of the same color, it will destroy any gems of
       that color adjacent to it. Crystals are worth much more than an equal
       number of regular gems.

       For more information, see the "How to Play" screen in the game.
