bloxorz: an OpenGL Logic Game written in Haskell

You can play with it on Arch Linux via:

    $ yaourt bloxorz

On other systems

    $ cabal install bloxorz

                    Packages for the Haskell bindings to SDL are now available in Arch.:

                    Simple DirectMedia Layer is a cross-platform multimedia library designed to provide low level access to audio, keyboard, mouse, joystick, 3D hardware via OpenGL, and 2D video framebuffer. It is used by MPEG playback software, emulators, and many popular games, including the award winning Linux port of “Civilization: Call To Power.”

                    Many parts of the library are available:
