NAME
     nsnake -- a snake game for	your terminal

SYNOPSIS
     nsnake [-cnsvw] [-C color]

DESCRIPTION
     You are controlling a snake where the goal	is eating food spawning	ran-
     domly on the screen.

     There are two types of food, normal and free, respectively	+, *.

     The head of the snake is symbolized with an @.

     Each time you eat a piece of food,	the snake will be grown	by two.	If you
     eat a free	piece of food the score	will be	increased but not the snake's
     length.

     The following options are available:

     -c	     Disable colors, by	default	if the terminal	is capable colors are
	     enabled.

     -C	color
	     Specify an	alternate color	between	0 and 8. (default 2)

     -n	     Do	not try	to update score	file.

     -s	     Only display high score sorting by	descending and exit.

     -v	     Be	more verbose.

     -w	     Disable wall crossing. Can	be used	together with -s to show score
	     with wall crossing	disabled.

     minal character dimensions.
