-Wormlet game
-\par}
-
-Wormlet is a multi{}-user multi{}-worm game on a multi{}-threaded
-multi{}-functional Rockbox console. You navigate a hungry little worm.
-Help your worm to find food and to avoid poisoned argh{}-tiles. The
-goal is to turn your tiny worm into a big worm for as long as possible.
-
-For 2{}-player games a remote control is not necessary but recommended.
-If you try to hold the Jukebox in the four hands of two players
-you'll find out why. Games with three players are only
-possible using a remote control.

-\subsubsection{The game}
-Use the control keys of your worm to navigate around obstacles and find
-food. Worms do not stop moving except when dead. Dead worms are no fun.
-Be careful as your worm will try to eat anything that you steer it
-across. It won't distinguish whether it's edible or not.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Food}
-The small square hollow pieces are food. Move the worm over a food tile
-to eat it. After eating the worm grows. Each time a piece of food has
-been eaten a new piece of food will pop up somewhere. Unfortunately for
-each new piece of food that appears two new ``argh'' pieces will
-appear, too.
-\item \textbf{Argh}
-An ``argh'' is a black square poisoned piece {}- slightly bigger than
-food {}- that makes a worm say ``Argh!'' when
-run into. A worm that eats an ``argh'' is dead. Thus eating an
-``argh'' must be avoided under any circumstances. ``Arghs'' have the
-annoying tendency to accumulate.
-\item \textbf{Worms}
-Thou shall not eat worms. Neither other worms nor thyself. Eating worms
-is blasphemous cannibalism, not healthy and causes instant
-death. And it doesn't help anyway: the other worm
-isn't hurt by the bite. It will go on creeping happily
-and eat all the food you left on the table.
-\item \textbf{Walls}
-Don't crash into the walls. Walls are not edible.
-Crashing a worm against a wall causes it a headache it
-doesn't survive.
-\item \textbf{Game over}
-
-The game is over when all worms are dead. The longest worm wins the
-game.
-\item \textbf{Pause the game}
-Press the PLAY key to pause the game. Hit PLAY again to resume the game.
-
-\item \textbf{Stop the game}
-There are two ways to stop a running game.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item If you want to quit Wormlet entirely simply hit the OFF button.
-The game will stop immediately and you will return to the game menu.
-\item If you want to stop the game and still see the screen hit the ON
-button. This freezes the game. If you hit the ON button again a new
-game starts with the same configuration. To return to the games menu
-you can hit the OFF button. A stopped game can not be resumed.
-\end{itemize}
-\end{itemize}
-
-\subsubsection{The scoreboard}
-On the right side of the game field is the score board. For each worm it
-displays its status and its length. The top most entry displays the
-state of worm 1, the second worm 2 and the third worm 3. When a worm
-dies it's entry on the score board turns black.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Len:}
-Here the current length of the worm is displayed. When a worm is eating
-food it grows by one pixel for each step it moves.
-
-\item \textbf{Hungry:}
-That's the normal state of a worm. Worms are always
-hungry and want to eat. It's good to have a hungry
-worm since it means that your worm is alive. But it's
-better to get your worm growing.
-
-\item \textbf{Growing:}
-When a worm has eaten a piece of food it starts growing. For each step
-it moves over food it can grow by one pixel. One piece of food lasts
-for 7 steps. After your worm has moved 7 steps the food is used up. If
-another piece of food is eaten while growing it will increase the size
-of the worm for another 7 steps.
-
-\item \textbf{Crashed:}
-This indicates that a worm has crashed against a wall.
-
-\item \textbf{Argh:}
-If the score board entry displays ``Argh!'' it
-means the worm is dead because it tried to eat an ``argh''. Until we
-can make the worm say ``Argh!'' it's your job to say ``Argh!'' aloud.
-
-\item \textbf{Wormed:}
-The worm tried to eat another worm or even itself.
-That's why it's dead now. Making traps for other players with a worm is a good way to get them out of the game.
-\end{itemize}
-
-
-\subsubsection{Hints}
-
-\begin{itemize}
-
-\item Initially you will be busy with controlling your worm. Try to
-avoid other worms and crawl far away from them. Wait until they curl up
-themselves and collect the food afterwards. Don't worry if the other worms grow longer than yours {}- you can catch up after they've died.
-
-\item When you are more experienced watch the tactics of other worms.
-Those worms controlled by artificial stupidity head straight for the
-nearest piece of food. Let the other worm have its next piece of food
-and head for the food it would probably want next. Try to put yourself
-between the opponent and that food. From now on you can 'control' the other worm by blocking it. You could trap it by making a 1 pixel wide U{}-turn. You also could move from food to food and make sure you keep between your opponent and
-the food. So you can always reach it before your opponent.
-
-\item While playing the game the Jukebox can still play music. For
-single player game use any music you like. For berserk games with 2 players use hard rock and for 3 player games use heavy metal or X{}-Phobie
-(\url{http://www.x-phobie.de/}).
-Play fair and don't kick your opponent in the toe or
-poke him in the eye. That would be bad manners.
