Xye readme

---License information---

Xye is free, open source software. The license used is a copy of the
zlib/libpng license. See COPYING.txt for more information.

---Game information---

First, double click on Xye.exe (With a green ball icon) to play.

(By the way, the website at '' provides
a very detailed description and screenshots.)

---Selecting a theme---

The first screen you shall see after running the game for the first
time is the theme selector. Pick the theme you like the most. If you
make the wrong choice, do not worry. You can always return to the
theme selector by using the [F3] Theme button.

---The level browser---

Here you can select a level file. Newcomers shall try the
tutorials.xye file first.

---The gameplay---

Xye is a green ball that can move one cell up, down, left or right
in every move. You can use the keyboard cursors to move or you can
also use the mouse cursor. I recommend a keyboard because some
levels require some speed.

---The levels---

Tutorial levels are easy to solve by simple experimentation. You can
read hints (The light bulb button) or play solution videos (The film
with an S button) if you wish.

The levels.xye file holds the official levels. At this moment of
beta, the order of the levels may not be optimal. Although level
1 is definitely easier than level 15, level 10 is not necessarily
harder than level 4. Either way, Xye is designed in a way that lets
you skip any level if you want to. Whenever you leave a level, the
progress is saved and will be loaded automatically when you return
to it.

There are plenty of other bonus levels, many made by people in the
community using the level editor. Also, the web site might have some
other levels that are not included in the game.

---More levels and the editor---

Visit this address: '' if you
wish to have information about the level editor and more levels that
you can download and play.


Kye was a charityware, although Xye targets to be completelly free
software, it is fair to add these lines to the readme: if you really
enjoy this game and want to give me a good reason to continue
improving it. Instead of asking for donations I am gonna ask you to
donate to any Children Charity. If you do it BECAUSE OF XYE, and feel
like making the authors feel better, email me at vexorian() to
tell me you did it :) (do not include any private information/proof
as that is risky, just tell me you donated to charity because you
enjoyed Xye). I will admit that after 6 years of development this
has not happened yet.
---Who is responsible for this mess?---

work. If you have suggestions or bug reports please send them to
