Branch: CURRENT, Version: 20050319, Package name: gate88-20050319, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Gate 88 is often described as "like subspace but with the ability
to build turrets and command fighters." While a skillful pilot can
decimate the enemy in one-on-one combat, a thoughtful player can
overwhelm the opponent with strategic turret and fighter placements.
However, only those who truly understand the intricate details of
both action and strategy will win the day.

Because alliances can be broken on a whim, players must interpret
the social situation of the game to ensure that each alliance is
sincere. For example, it is not uncommon for an allied player to
plant turrets and fighters within your base only to break the
alliance and watch your empire crumble from within. Always be
careful with your trust.

Gate 88 employs a unique user interface that allows players to
pilot their ship while performing strategic operations. The tutorial
and practice mode will get you up to speed.

Log message:
games/*: fix alignment of variable values

pkglint -Wall -r --autofix --only aligned

After running the above command, three packages had to be adjusted
manually:

In maelstrom-x11, pkglint didn't see that a commented variable
assignment should have been re-aligned as well.

In netmaze, there was a single line that didn't align well with all the
others, but pkglint decided to adjust the whole paragraph to this single
line. The result would have been ok, but not good.

In tscp, there was a paragraph where some of the lines were indented
one space more than the others. This rule is useful when one variable
name is very long compared to the others, but not in this case.
