USAGE

trojka [-s]

DESCRIPTION

The name Trojka is derived from the Russian word "Trojka", which means "three", or "triple".

When you start the game, you can select a level by pressing the corresponding alphanumeric key. Level 0 is easy, level 9 is hard. The aim of this game is to control and to place the falling blocks, so that at least three blocks horizontally or diagonally, or both, have matching patterns. This sequence is then removed, and the above blocks will collapse. The latter sequence is repeated as long as there are matching patterns after each collapsion. A sequence of three immediate collapsions results in a socalled "Trojka", which is rewarded with bonus points. If you reach the top of the screen, the game is finished.

OPTIONS

-s Display high-scores.

KEYS

The falling blocks are controlled using the numeric keypad:

4,h left
6,l right
2,j,<SPACE> drop
7,k increase speed
q while playing, stops the current game; otherwise, quits the program.
^L redraw screen (only while playing)
