Lifeboats from a crippled interstellar liner are adrift in a
starfield.  To find them, you can place probes that look in all eight
compass directions and tell you how many lifeboats they see.  If you
drop a probe directly on a lifeboat it will be revealed immediately.
Your objective: find the lifeboats as quickly as possible, before the
stranded passengers run out of oxygen!

This is a UNIX-hosted, curses-based clone of the nifty little Macintosh
freeware game Galaxis.  It doesn't have the super-simple, point-and-click
interface of the original, but compensates by automating away some of the
game's simpler deductions.

To run it, simply type `galaxis'.  The game screen includes a
description of all commands, including `?' for detailed help.

The Macintosh game was designed and written by Christian Franz

This really ought to be an X game, but that would have been too
much like work.
