Lifeboats from a crippled interstellar liner are adrift in a starfield. To find them, you can place probes that look in all eight compass directions and tell you how many lifeboats they see. If you drop a probe directly on a lifeboat it will be revealed immediately. Your objective: find the lifeboats as quickly as possible, before the stranded passengers run out of oxygen! This is a UNIX-hosted, curses-based clone of the nifty little Macintosh freeware game Galaxis. It doesn't have the super-simple, point-and-click interface of the original, but compensates by automating away some of the game's simpler deductions. To run it, simply type `galaxis'. The game screen includes a description of all commands, including `?' for detailed help. The Macintosh game was designed and written by Christian Franz cfranz()iiic.ethz.ch. This version was cloned by Eric S. Raymond esr()snark.thyrsus.com. See ESR's home page at http://www.catb.org/~esr/ for updates and other resources. This really ought to be an X game, but that would have been too much like work.
