The objective of the game is to score points by filling in lines horizontally
in the game area. When a line has been filled it will collapse and everything
above will fall one step down.
Every brick you use gives you a point, but clearing lines gives a lot more.
Bonus points for filled in lines are allocated as follows: Single - 50, Double
- 150, Triple - 300, Tetrys - 500. You should also note that 'dropping' blocks
(pressing the space bar) earns extra points. The higher you drop, the more points
About the HIGHSCORES...the game keeps track of your all-time personal best
achievement in each of the three categories. Who are we to say that points are
more valuable than lines?
Finally, the game picks up speed every round so keep your wits about you.
You're gonna need 'em.

Another, ahem, Article 19 original. We know this game has been done a gazillion
times, but that's only 'cause it's a true winner. So, being impressed with the
arcade version as well as the plethora of on-line implementations we couldn't
resist the urge to do 'yet another' one ourselves. We hope you enjoy it.
