git clone 'git://github.com/alezost/ducpel.git'


Logic game with sokoban elements for GNU Emacs.

Level 1 in progress



Clone the repo and add the following lines to your .emacs.

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/ducpel-dir")
(autoload 'ducpel "ducpel" nil t)


The package can be installed from MELPA or using quelpa like this:

(quelpa '(ducpel :fetcher github :repo "alezost/ducpel" :files ("*.el" "levels")))


Use M-x ducpel to start the game and the following keys to play:

Key bindings for levels:
