I didn't make the deb for that one, and it obviously needs touchups before
it can go into the archive. This might be better as a description (first cut,
not especially well-phrased):
Description: Collect powerups and avoids your opponents' trails
Heroes is similar to the "Tron" and "Nibbles" games of yore, but includes
many graphical improvements and new game features. In it, you must maneuver
a small vehicle around a world and collect powerups while avoiding obstacles,
your opponents' trails, and even your own trail.
Several modes of play are available, including "get-all-the-bonuses",
deathmatch, and "squish-the-pedestrians". One or two player (split-screen)
play is available on all graphics targets supported by GGI.
