Try this computer game for free and see what you think. Learn about the power of squareing a number
The playing field is filled with colored blocks. There are two objects to this game -
1) Remove all the blocks from the playing field - the fewer blocks remaining the more points you get.
2) Remove the largest group of blocks possible - all the blocks in a group must be the same color.
If you remove a group of 5 blocks you earn 5 squared = 5 * 5 = 25 points.
If you remove a group of 10 blocks you earn 10 squared = 10 * 10 = 100 points.
If you remove a group of 20 blocks you earn 20 squared = 20 * 20 = 400 points.
Every time you double the number of blocks removed you quadruple the score !!!
To remove any group of blocks, just click on any block in a group of 2 or more blocks. All the blocks in the group will be removed and the blocks above will drop down. If you clear an entire column of blocks, all the columns to the right will move left to fill the space created. Remember - try to leave as few stray blocks as possible at the end of the game !! The Wild Card will substitute for any color - use it wisely. There are 5 game field sizes to choose from.
If your system has 256+ colors, you can easily switch to beautiful ray-traced granite and marble blocks. If your monitor is only capable of 16 colors, use the 'B' key to select simple solid colored blocks.
