1Monster Masher
2--------------
3
4Monster Masher is an action game for Gnome. The gnome world is falling
5apart from the attack of the evil mineral monsters, and you, a humble
6levitation worker, is the only remaining hope for the gnomes. The goal
7is to mash all monsters to clear the road for the rock summoners to
8block the monsters' entrance to the gnome world.

17Requirements
18------------
19
20You need a modern Gnome desktop (i.e. at least Gnome 2.6) with the
21related libraries and the C++ wrappers for GTK+ and Gnome libraries,
22gtkmm, libgnomecanvasmm, gconfmm and libglademm. These can be fetched
23from http://www.gtkmm.org, or are alternatively probably available as
24packages from your distributor.

27How to play
28-----------
29
30At each level, there are a number of rounded blocks which can be
31pushed around. There are also some wall squares (blocks in another
32color) which are fixed; they are the bedrock. When a monster is
33between two blocks, pushing one of the blocks so that it hits the
34other causes the monster to be mashed. The armoured monsters require
35the other block to be the bedrock.
36
37By pressing the pull key you can also pull a single block, provided
38there are no monsters around it. You are not allowed to both push
39blocks and pull one at the same time, though.
40
41At the first levels, there are only the ordinary black monsters (the
42scouting troops). At the deeper levels, you will encounter other types
43of monsters. If you fight your way deep enough, you will even meet the
44egg layers. The eggs themselves are not dangerous and can easily be
45squashed by pushing blocks over them. However, linger for too long and
46the eggs will crackle...
47
48Mashing monsters and passing levels earns you points. For each 50
49points you earn, the god of the gnomes (it is the same guy who gives
50you your magical levitational powers) will grant you one more
51resurrection of your life. The red gems are full of holy anger and
52will kill all monsters near them when picked up, whereas the blue gems
53possess divine cold and freeze all monsters for a short period of
54time. The pink gems, the gems of love, make you invisible so you can
55see to your affairs untested.
56
57
58Some tips for how to reach the deepest level (level 30):
59
60  - Be very careful when entering a new level; the monsters are
61    scattered and it is difficult to escape.
62
63  - Try to build "castles" by placing the blocks in rows with the
64    monsters on one side and you on the other; then you can diminish
65    the space for the monsters untested by gradually enlarging the
66    castle.
67
68  - Learn how to control the hero well; diagonal pushes are often good
69    for safely enlarging castles.
70
71  - Beware of the red seeker monsters; if there is a hole in your
72    defence, they will find it.
73
74  - Appreciate the usefulness of pulling, sometimes a true monster
75    trap can be maintained by pushing and pulling the same block
76    repeatedly.
