glob2 — Real Time Strategy Game


glob2 [-h ] [-f ] [-r ] [-s640x480] [-a ] [-b ] [-l ] [-t [01]] [-d /home/foo/bar] [-u jack] [-host MapName]


This manual page documents briefly the glob2 command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

glob2 is a Real Time Strategy game, which can be compared with Warcraft and also Sims-games family. The primary aim of the game is to kill your opponents, just like in Warcraft-like games, and the whole control is processed through buildings, not units, as in Sims-games family.
