The gameplay of Bomns for Linux is quite simple: just move around the level,
picking up powerups and avoiding powerdowns, all the while laying bomns and
plotting your opponent's destruction.  A bomn will do 5 damage to the other
player, and running into the other player will do 1 damage.  The first to
kill their opponent before the time runs out is declared the winner.

Player one controls:
  Move      : arrow keys
  Drop Bomn : enter

Player two controls:
  Move      : W,A,S,D
  Drop Bomn : spacebar

Other controls:
  Enter/exit fullscreen mode: F
  Quit current game         : escape

Configuring Bomns for Linux
Bomns reads its configuration from a file called ".bomnsrc", which will be
created the first time you run the game.  This is a simple text file, fairly
well-commented, and it can be easily edited.

Using the Level Editor
The Bomns for Linux level editor is a fairly simple tool you can use to create
your own custom levels in which to play.  Use the keyboard or mouse to create
a level, then press F2 to save it to the filename specified on the command
line.  The most crucial keyboard commands are laid out on the bottom of the
editor screen, but here are the full controls:

Keyboard Controls:
  Move cursor         : arrow keys
  Stamp tile          : S, spacebar, enter
  Delete tile         : D, delete
  Next tile           : page up
  Previous tile       : page down
  Select tile         : 1-9
  Test level in Bomns : L
  Fullscreen mode     : F
  Save level          : F2
  Clear level         : F10
  Exit editor         : escape

Mouse Controls:
  Move cursor   : mouse
  Stamp tile    : left click
  Delete tile   : right click
  Next tile     : mouse wheel up
  Previous tile : mouse wheel down
