Process Roulette

Play this game at your peril!

Process Roulette kills processes at random on your computer - you choose how many.

Each process that is killed earns you points. You earn bonus points for killing processes that belong to other users, and a super-bonus if you kill a process owned by the root account.

But watch out - if a critical process is killed and your computer crashes, or if the game kills its own process and stops, you score nothing!

Do you dare to play?

#         This game randomly kills processes running on your computer          #
#                 Other users' processes are worth more points                 #
#              To get the highest scores play as the 'root' user               #
