                               COLLAPSE (1.1)

The program COLLAPSE.PRG requires the file COLLAPSE.DAT and 
should also be accompanied by this file COLLAPSE.TXT.

Blocks fall in groups of three. The object is to line up three or 
more of the same type in horizontal, vertical or diagonal rows. 
When this occurs the blocks dissolve and any remaining blocks 
above collapse downward.

Start the game with the F1 key. Exit the game with Escape or 
Undo. Before the game starts pressing the space bar will toggle 
the block design from bars to letters and back. The design type 
is shown at the lower right side of the screen.

You maneuver the block group by the right, left and down arrow 
keys, or you can use the J, K, L keys. The left arrow or J moves 
blocks left, the right arrow or L moves blocks right. The down 
arrow or K changes the order of blocks in the three group that is 
falling. The space bar can be used to drop the group immediately.

The fall rate of the blocks increases slightly every 1.5 minutes. 
So the faster you can drop them with the space bar the more time 
you will have to think before they speed up.

Points are scored for block eliminated as follows: 30 points for a 
row of 3 blocks, 70 points for a row of 4 blocks, 120 points for 
a row of 5 blocks. In addition 20 points are scored for every 
each block eliminated above 5 in a collapse even if they are not 
aligned. So the more you knock out at once the better score you 

SCORE shows the score for the current game. BLOCKS shows the 
number of blocks eliminated for the most recent fall. MOST shows 
the largest number of blocks eliminated on a fall. TOTAL shows 
the total number of block eliminated during the game.

A high score file is maintained so you must have your disk 
unwrite protected in order for the file to be updated.

The program was made in GFA basic 3.07 and may be distributed 
freely providing it is accompanied by this text file.

I hope you have a spectacular collapse!
