* SOLEAU SOFTWARE PRESENTS * THE ROBIX GAME (1.0) _________________________________ Programed by William Soleau Version 1.0 (c) 1992 Requirements: EGA and Brain Power Files Needed: Robix.exe Robix.ov1 Robix.ov2 Robix.ov3 INSTRUCTIONS ____________ OBJECTIVE The objective of Robix is get your color blocks to the bottom of the game board by shifting entire rows either to the left or right. You can play Robix against the computer or a friend. When playing the computer, you will be assigned the Red blocks and the computer will always play the Blue. SELECTING AND PUSHING ROWS At the start of each game, the computer will randomly decide who will go first. Each player then takes turns pushing a row of blocks left or right. When a row is selected, it will be shifted one grid space. The rows can only be pushed a total of two times in either direction. If your color block is pushed against one side of the grid board, then it will re-appear on the other side after the row has shifted. When it is your turn to play, you will see an arrow pointing to the top row on the left side of the screen. Use the arrow keys to select the row and the direction to push in. The computer will only let you position the pointer icon on valid rows. Once you have selected a row, push the <Spacebar> to activate the push. If a block has the space to keep moving downwards, it will continue to fall until it either reaches the bottom or hits another block. SHORT / MEDIUM / LONG GAMES Robix has three types of games you can play. The Short game ends when the first player can get 10 of his color blocks to the bottom. The Medium game ends after 25 blocks, and the Long game is 50 blocks. In the Medium and Long games, once a block reaches the bottom, it will move back up to an empty space on the top row.
