core package for Boson

Boson is a real-time strategy game (RTS), similar in feel to games such as Command & Conquer and StarCraft. War can be waged both on the ground and in the air, with large numbers of units all attacking simultaneously -- defensive turrets can protect your base, while your A-10 attack aircraft strike at enemy tanks before they can destroy your oil refinery. Combat is affected by wind, natural obstacles such as trees, and diverse terrain. Boson also features an advanced graphics core with shader-powered ground and water rendering, reflections, waves in the water, smooth fog of war transitions, night and day lighting effects, and explosive particle effects. Individual units have their own movement patterns, animations, multiple weapons, and intelligent pathfinding. Boson is currently best played with human players, but a computer AI is included for single player battles. Boson also has world and unit editors for players that want to customize their battles. A number of sample missions and maps are also available. This package provides the binaries to run Boson.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
