Welcome to Battletris, a Tetris game for all Atari computers.
Well, at least most of them...
Battletris works on every ST with every combination of TOS 
and memory, but you will need a colour monitor or TV. If you
have an old ST (not a STE) you won't get the digital stereo
music and some other goodies. Battletris also works on
Falcon030 and perhaps on the TT too. 

Battletris is GREETWARE. This means that if you want to play
this game you MUST send greetings to New Core, preferably by
mention us in a wonderful new and mindblowing demo or game.
Otherwise a postcard will do. The address is:

               New Core

Battletris is not a standard Tetris game. There are many 'special 
effects' which makes Battletris unique. For those of you who have 
never heard of Tetris before I will briefly explain the objective 
of the game.

Tetris was invented by a russian programmer for a couple of years 
ago. Tetris is hard to explain but very easy to play and very fun 
too. It's kind of a jig-saw puzzle where you control the pices 
(blocks) which is falling down from the top of the screen one by
one. You have to rotate and move each block, while it is falling,
so it fits the rest of the puzzle. If you manage to build a
complete vertical line, the line will disappear and the blocks can
continue to fall forever. But if you fail, the blocks will pile on 
top of each other. When the pile reaches the top of the screen the
game is over.

You can control the blocks either with the keyboard or with a
joystick. The joystick should be connected to port 1.


LEFT ARROW KEY / JOYSTICK LEFT

This will move the falling block one step to the left.


RIGHT ARROW KEY / JOYSTICK RIGHT

This will move the falling block one step to the right.


ARROW DOWN KEY / JOYSTICK FIRE

This will rotate the falling block 90 degrees.


SPACE BAR / JOYSTICK DOWN

This will make the falling block drop down immediately.


The score is located on the left side of the screen. It shows 
your current score. You are awarded one point for every block 
that lands. Every block you drop down fast by pressing space or 
fire give you an extra bonus point. Every completed line give 
you 10 points and if manage to do a 'real tetris' (That is 
completing four lines with one single block) you are awarded with
50 points.

In the top right corner of the screen is small monitor. It shows 
how the next falling block will look like. This can be very
useful when you are deciding where to put the current block.

It is possible to link two computers together and play against
each other. Connect a null-modem between the two computers and
select link mode. In link mode it is important to complete as
many lines as possible as fast as possible. Life will very fast
become difficult for the player who has completed least number
of lines. The status is displayed in the bottom left corner. 

Have fun!
