Manual Reference Pages - TROJKA (6)
TROJKA - a game of skill.
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.
The falling blocks are controlled using the numeric keypad:
while playing, stops the current game; otherwise, quits the program.
