ToolTypes (program icon):

 - PUBSCREEN (def=default pubscreen, name of public screen to use for "window"
   mode)
 - FULLSCREEN (def=windowed, can be toggled ingame with alt-return)
 - DEPTH (16/32, def=32, only applies to fullscreen)
 - CHANNELS (def=4, amount of audio "channels" to use)
 - REFRESH (def=as set in Prefs/GUI, SIMPLE/SMART)

Playing:

1. Doubleclick the icon to run the game.

2. Select "New Game" and then try to save your city by destroying the incoming
   missile waves. Also try not to let your cannons get destroyed as they are
   your only defensive capability against the missiles. All buildings still
   intact at the end of a "wave" add to your score (no buildings left => game
   over).

The hiscores are saved in a file called "hiscores.bin". If this file does not
exist yet it is created by the game. To clear out the hiscores just delete the
file.

Note: The game requires a P96 hicolour (16-bit) or truecolor (24/32-bit)
screenmode. The display code won't work for a palettemapped or non-P96 screen.
The "FULLSCREEN" option above can be used to force the game to open it's own
screen, which should be OK.
