A game of maze.

Project description

MazinGame
=========

A game of maze.

Idea of the game is to find a path through the maze to a location marked
by ‘X’.

Snapshot from an actual game (if you are seeing this in pypi.python.org
you may not see it correctly, so go to GitHub page to see it)::

Requirements
------------

`Docker runtime <https://www.docker.com/get-docker>`__. If you ask why?
Because it makes distribution simple and life easier :-).

If using sources, Python 3.x with curses and
`mazepy <https://github.com/samisalkosuo/mazepy>`__. Does not work with
Python2 or Windows without Cygwin.

Install and usage - Docker
--------------------------

Install from Dockerhub:

- docker pull kazhar/mazingame

Use

Install and usage - pip
-----------------------

There is a version in pip. Install from pip:

- **pip install mazingame**.

Note that this is not regularly updated

Instructions
------------

You will start at some location in the bottom of the maze. ‘X’ is
somewhere nearer the top of the maze. Move using cursor keys or
‘w’,‘a’,‘s’,‘d’. Quit pressing ‘q’ or Ctrl-C.

When, or if, you reach ‘X’, the ending score is saved to SQLite
database. The default highscore file location is
$HOME/.mazingame_highscores.sqlite. Use environment variable
MAZINGAME_HIGHSCORE_FILE to set another file.

Command line options include: -f, –fullscreen Use terminal to show
entire maze. But only if terminal size is larger than the maze.
–showpath Show shortest path. Remember: this is cheating. –showmaze Show
entire maze. Remember: this is cheating. -hs, –highscores Show high
scores.

And a few more.

Note: database in high score file may change from version to version, if
you get SQLite error when saving high scores, delete your high score
file.
