Atomiks - A remake of the classic Atomix game for modern platforms
 Copyright (C) Mateusz Viste 2013

 *** Introduction ***

Atomiks is a faithful remake of, and a tribute to, Atomix, a classic
puzzle game created by Softtouch & RoSt and released in 1990 by the
Thalion Software company. Atomiks is free software, and shares no code
with the original Atomix game.

 *** What is Atomix? ***

Extract borrowed from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"Atomix takes place on a playfield, consisting of a number of walls,
with the atoms scattered throughout. The player is tasked with assembling
a molecule from the atoms; more specifically, the atoms must be arranged
into a specific shape, identical with the shape of the molecule displayed
on the left side of the screen. The player can choose an atom and move it
in any of the four cardinal directions; however, a moved atom keeps sliding
in one direction until it hits a wall or another atom. Solving the puzzles
requires strategic planning in moving the atoms, and on later levels with
little free space, even finding room for the completed molecule can be a

 *** Requirements ***

Atomiks is writen with care about portability, therefore it should build
on most modern platform without much hassle. It requires the following
libraries to run: SDL, SDL_image, SDL_mixer, libmikmod, libpng and zlib.

DOS compatibility note: My version of Atomix can't be easily compiled to
a native DOS binary, but you can use the Win32 binary in DOS using the
HX DOS Extender.

 *** Configuration ***

The game do not require any configuration. It accepts however a few
command-line parameters:

  --fullscreen     - Runs Atomiks in fullscreen mode
                     (default is windowed mode)

  --nosound        - Disable sound

 *** License ***

license does NOT apply to level design and graphics used by Atomiks,
