The Goal

The goal of merlin is to force all nine cells to have the logo in them.

My personal goal is to make money and have fun! :-)


How to Play

= Logo

Use the mouse (either button) to select cells. Selecting a cell causes some cells to change. You figure it out.


Using the Keyboard

The q Esc and Ctrl-C keys quit the game. The F2 key restarts the game. The F1 key shows this help.

When viewing help, the space bar, F1 or Esc return you to your game. Numbers show that section (0 for any pre-header section). Letters show section starting with that letter.

The Ace of Penguins system was written by me, DJ Delorie, so that my wife Pat could play her favorite Windows 95 games on my Linux laptop. She gets credit for hours of testing ;-)

Many thanks to the SGI, Linux, and GNU developers, for the tools and systems I use.

Special thanks to Rebecca, for showing that test2 was a useful program.
