--[ORIGINAL README]-------------------------------------------------------------


The goal of the game is to play as much time possible biting no part of the 
worm's body. You can move behind the screen with the vi-like 
keys 'h', 'j', 'k' and 'l' respectively for left, down, up and right,
or using the directional arrows. The pause can be enabled/disabled with the
key 'p' or the space bar. Using the 't' key you can lock the auto-move
walking one cell for time. The 'a' key is provide in order to enable the 
auto-mode (or demo mode) which allow the game to play without user interaction.
The scores are incremented any time you eat a number and will be incremented
of that number. Finally, the '?' key will show you a short description of 
the game with a list of all function keys availables.  The  flag start the 
game in auto-mode. To terminate the game just press 'q' or 
type ^C to force the exit. 


You are always informed about the current game status. At the top of screen 
there are 3 rectangles, the first show the worm position coordinates (y*x),
the second show the main information bar (see down) and the third the eat 
position coordinates (y*x).  The informations inside the main bar are the 

    TS: terminal size (y*x);
    SL: speed level (incremented any time EM is equal to 0);
    EM: total numbers to eat before switch to the next level;
    WM: total worm moves, any time you change route it's incremented;
    UT: total tricks used during the current game (see the 't' key);
    Ss: total scores.
At top of the screen, among the name and the copyright message, there is a 
symbol which can be '-' in normal mode and '+' in auto-mode. Use this symbol
to learn about your current status.
