Disk No: 2880 Disk Title: Quatris II PC-SIG Version: S1.0 Program Title: QUATRIS II Author Version: 1.0D Author Registration: $16.00 + $4.75 shipping Special Requirements: 640k RAM and EGA/VGA card. The ultimate brain game? You be the judge. This tetris-like game is very easy to operate and play while at the same time exercising your brain to visualize and measure objects and space. If you know Tetris, QUATRIS II shouldn't be any problem for you. This game has 3 complete levels and 40 extended shapes to play with. QUATRIS II supports 16 color, high resolution EGA/VGA graphics mode using 3D graphical-user-interface, and now works under QEMM. It will automatically save your game, allow you to redefine your keys, track both your score and the number of lines left, and is provided with a grid to help you more accurately drop the blocks. A unique feature that can improve your score by giving you another chance is the ability to enlist bombs that will either wipe out a line, wipe out particular pieces, or wipe out everything on the screen, provided you have enough "energy." Challenge of the playing field changes from level to level with the fluxuation of the two-dimensional "well" where the blocks fall. The shareware version of QUATRIS II has only 3 levels of play, yet many people find (and we tend to agree) that even in this form it provides you with more fun and addiction than Tetris or any of the other tetris-like programs.
