This is a touchscreen- and color-only game coded in Lua that's a clone of .

I haven't found a name for it yet and am not really aiming at mainline inclusion (ie not willing to do the manual patches ;) ), but I did want to share the game hence the Flyspray task.

It has been tested on r23360 in the sim and on-target (Onda VX747).

It is a rather basic game, but probably a good way to show off some of Lua's features in Rockbox (this was written in ~1 day).
This task depends upon

have we got a wiki page that people can upload lua scripts to so we dont have to include them in the build? (although, having some in there would be nice)... or can we extend the themes site to deal with them?

Not that I know of.. AFAIK there's only PluginLua.

Also, there's a big lack of documentation wrt Lua (and plugin API documentation in general is not that great); I've got some ideas for rewriting my old plugin API documentation generator script but lack the time and interest atm to continue it.
