Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.0.0nb1, Package name: mirrormagic-3.0.0nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This is a nice little game with color graphics and sound for your
Unix system with color X11. You need an 8-Bit color display or better.
It is not recommended on black&white systems, and maybe not on gray
scale systems.

It was first released as "Mirror Magic" in the year 1989 on the Amiga
(with ports on other computer systems). As the Amiga is a bit outdated
now, I decided to port it to Unix systems.

A game for Unix/X11 by Holger Schemel, (c) 1995 by Holger Schemel.

Log message:
mirrormagic: updated to 3.0.0

There are not many new features and changes to the game itself, as the main goal \ 
of this release is to keep the game playable on modern systems, and there is \ 
finally also support for Mac and Android systems. This was all done by \ 
integrating the classic Mirror Magic game engine into the game \ 
Rocks’n’Diamonds as a new custom game engine, therefore using R’n’D as \ 
the new technical platform for this and any future release.
