A Robot's Conundrum
===================

A Robot's Conundrum is a puzzling game. It has puzzles to solve, but it's up to
you to figure out how to solve them.

You control a robot with the arrow keys and the space key.

The code of A Robot's Conundrum is free software under the terms of the GNU
General Public License version 3 (or any later version). The artwork is free
culture under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0
license. See the files GPLv3.txt and cc-by-sa-3.0.txt for the full license
texts.

A Robot's Conundrom was created by Sakse Dalum, Niels G. W. Serup, and Lasse.

This is version 0.1 of the program. The development version can be fetched by
running

$ git clone git://hongabar.org/a-robots-conundrum

The development version is probably neither active nor stable.

The games' website is http://projects.hongabar.org/a-robots-conundrum (NOT UP!)


Installation
============

A Robot's Conundrum depends on PyGame <http://pygame.org>.

If you haven't downloaded the .tar.gz file, run

% easy_install a-robots-conundrum (NOT UP!)

to download and install it in one go.

Else, extract the archive, cd into it, and run

$ python setup.py build (NOT DONE)
% python setup.py install (NOT DONE)

The game can then be run like this:

$ a-robots-conundrum

There is no in-game menu for adjusting things; that happens on the command
line. To see which things can be adjusted, run

$ a-robots-conundrum --help


Notes
=====

Dangerous randomness in rolling boulder puzzle
----------------------------------------------
There is a puzzle about a rolling boulder in level 1. It's not guaranteed to be
solvable, because you might not be able to move an arrow block to the position
you need to move it to. However, this scenario is so unlikely that we have
chosen to ignore it.


Lack of code niceness
---------------------
The code works but is a bit messy.


Lack of efficiency
------------------
The code could certainly be more effective.
