X11 version of zblast, shoot 'em up space game

zblast is a shoot 'em up space game with a cool sound.

The goal of zblast is to shoot and destroy all enemy ships. When you get it before your ship is destroyed, you can go to a next stage (called "wave" in this game).

Unlike most of other shoot 'em up games, in zblast your ship can bear a fair amount of damage (at least 30 hits and you can gain extra energy during the game). It does not mean that you are safe -- you just need it. In fact, enemy shots are fast and the sky is FILLED with them. If you enjoy surviving a rain of laser beams by dodging them, you may need another package.

The most interesting part of zblast is its music. With the abstract graphics (simple line-only diagrams), zblast can provide a taste of cyber-space.

Two versions of the zblast program are available, one uses svgalib and one uses X11. This package contains X11 version of the game. The command is named "xzb" rather than "xblast" because there is already another xblast (a bomberman clone).
