About Zyps

Zyps are small creatures with minds of their own. You can
choose whether you want a Zyp to chase the others, run away
from them, or eat them for lunch. Then drop it in the
midst of the crowd, and see what it does. If it's cool,
create a dozen more just like it. If not, choose from the
many other actions and make something else.

This is the demonstration program for the Zyps game library
for Ruby. With the library, you can easily make your own
actions, or even your own games. You can get the source
code from the site at:

science, and computer science teachers whose names I've
forgotten. Nothing I do today would be possible without
your efforts so long ago.

Alex Fenton and Mario Steele for wxRuby advice.
