FALLING TOWER Version 2.9
A game where you jump up and up while the tower collapses under your feet.
If you performed a git clone instead of downloading the source tarball, see the Development section of this README for instructions on how to generate the configure script.
Once you have the configure script, install xjump using the usual configure + make install pattern:
./configure make sudo make install
./configure -- help for a list of configuration options to tweak
install locations, etc.
To allow xjump to update the highscore file on behalf of regular user,
your system must have a user and group namd
games. We expect this to
be standard in Linux distributions.
To move: arrow keys, WASD, IJKL or the keypad arrow keys
To jump: Up or Down arrow keys, Z or SPACE
To pause and unpause: P or the Pause keypad.
To exit the game: Shift+Q
To configure xjump create a configuration file at $HOME/.config/xjump.config You can use the following keys during configuration:
- themeFile : Path to a custom sprite file. Ex.: /usr/share/xjump/themes/jumpnbump.xpm
- theme : Name of a custom sprite theme bundled with xjump. Ex.: jumpnbump
Here is an example of an xjump configuration file:
# This is a comment theme = jumpnbump
Xjump can use custom textures in xpm format. The required dimensions are 144x64.

For examples, see the themes folder.
To generate the configure script and the makefile templates you must have the GNU autotools installed and run autoreconf:
If you want to delete all thoss files the autotools generated, the best way is via Git itself:
git clean -xd
