THE ROBIX GAME
Programed by William Soleau
Version 1.0 (c) 1992
Requirements: EGA and Brain Power
The objective of Robix is get your color blocks to the bottom
of the game board by shifting entire rows either to the left or
right. You can play Robix against the computer or a friend.
When playing the computer, you will be assigned the Red blocks
and the computer will always play the Blue.
SELECTING AND PUSHING ROWS
At the start of each game, the computer will randomly decide
who will go first. Each player then takes turns pushing a row
of blocks left or right. When a row is selected, it will be
shifted one grid space. The rows can only be pushed a total of
two times in either direction. If your color block is pushed
against one side of the grid board, then it will re-appear on
the other side after the row has shifted. When it is your turn
to play, you will see an arrow pointing to the top row on the
left side of the screen. Use the arrow keys to select the row
and the direction to push in. The computer will only let you
position the pointer icon on valid rows.
Once you have selected a row, push the to activate
the push. If a block has the space to keep moving downwards,
it will continue to fall until it either reaches the bottom or
hits another block.
SHORT / MEDIUM / LONG GAMES
Robix has three types of games you can play. The Short game
ends when the first player can get 10 of his color blocks to
the bottom. The Medium game ends after 25 blocks, and the Long
game is 50 blocks. In the Medium and Long games, once a block
reaches the bottom, it will move back up to an empty space on
the top row.
