Epiphany is a GPL'ed (free software) multi-platform clone of BoulderDash.
The player must collect all valuable minerals scattered in levels,
avoiding being hit by a falling boulder, or (worst :) by a bomb.

It is a alpha version, but it is playable.
It uses SDL 1.2 and SDL_mixer 1.2 (http://www.libsdl.org), so make sure it is properly installed
before compiling Epiphany.
