This minor maintenance update, takes Powermanga
from version 0.91 to version 0.93.1 (2015-06-28) 

  powermanga - shoot-'em-up game

  powermanga [OPTIONS]

  Powermanga  is  a shoot'em up game; you will have to fight more than 60
  different types of enemies.

  You start with a ship, and enemies show up throwing bombs at you. Shoot
  them, and get better weapons for your ship (otherwise, you won't go too

  To get better weapons, you will have to catch green and red gems. When-
  ever  you pick a green gem, the highlighted option at the right side of
  the screen goes up one unit.

  The options are, from the bottom to the top:

  - More speed

  - More energy to your ship
         If you get out of energy, you lose your ship. Losing  your  ship
         means  either  going  back to the ship you were using before you
         "upgraded' it, or dying if you had no  previous  ship!  You  can
         check your energy level in the little bar at the bottom (the bar
         at the right is yours; the one at the left is your  enemy's,  in
         case you're fighting a big one)

  - Several options for different weapons

  - The last option gets you a better ship

  If the current option is "more power to the leftside straight weapons",
  for example, you may select it and they will immediately take effect.

  If the current option is already the last, and you pick a green or  red
  gem, you will go back to the first one (but you will get an extra side-
  weapon). Also, whenever you pick an option,  the  current  option  goes
  back to the first one.

  During the game, you will sometimes see gems falling down when an enemy
  is destroyed. You may catch those gems:

  - Green gems
         As we said before, makes the current option go up one unit.

  - Red gems
         Similar to the green gem, but it increases 2 units instead of 1.

  - Pink gems
         Gives energy to your ship. If your  energy  is  at  the  maximum
         level,  this  gem  will  give you a full blast that destroys all
         enemies currently on the screen.

  - Blue gems
         They multiply the score points for each destroyed enemy by 2. If
         you  get  the blue gem again, the score points are multiplied by
         4; you can see the "2x" or "4x" blinking at the sidebar.

  - Yellow gems
         These give you protection balls. If you already have six protec-
         tion  balls  and you get another yellow gem, you will get a spe-
         cial weapon!

  When you get a better ship, you will be able to accumulate more energy,
  becoming  more  resistant  to  attacks. But whenever you "upgrade" your
  ship, a few things will happen:

  - Protection
         You will lose all your protection balls (let's say  they're  not
         "compatible" with your new ship).

  - Weapons
         You  will  lose  one  "degree"  in your weapons (if you had used
         green gems to get the best possible weapon for shooting straight
         forward, for example, after upgrading your ship you will have to
         get one more green gem if you want your weapons at  the  maximum

  - Score
         If your score was getting multiplied by 2 or 4, it won't be any-
         more (go get more blue gems!)
