This is the source code of a port of Magnetic from
to AROS.

Binary release will be created from the "ports" feature
of the AROS build-system.

Magnetic is an interpreter of text adventures from
"Magnetic Scrolls". You can download some of those games
from the link mentioned above. Also you can find hints
how to play such games on that homepage.

The interpreter can be started from both Wanderer and Shell.

Starting from Wanderer opens a file requester where you can
select the *.mag file.

Starting from Shell without arguments shows all available
arguments. Example usage: magnetic pawn.mag

Icon tooltypes:

Keys during game play:
F1  = Text window to front
F2  = Graphics window to front
F10 = Password
With the cursor keys you can scroll in the command history.
