Alexey Pajitnov, Soviet mathematician, designer and programmer, speaks to American computer enthusiasts:
Dear friends: It is pleasant to know that on the other side of the ocean in America there are many admirers of my games. I would like to propose my new work for your minds. This game is even more challenging than the last one. My son is seven, but he has not yet mastered it. If you like TETRIS, this game will also give you many hours of pleasure. I hope the pieces will be manageable for you on the walls of the well. The main thing is to construct in the square - always adding, imporving, developing. This is my motto. Play WELLTRIS! Good Luck! Alexey Pajitnov
Just when you thought you had mastered TETRISTM! Now we bring you yet another mind teaser from the famed Soviet author of TETRIS, Alexey Pajitnov. WELLTRIS takes you into another dimension as you attempt to position shapes in a three-dimensional perspective. Imagine looking down into a four-sided well with grid-like walls and bottom. Rotate the falling pieces within each wall. But that's just the beginning; you also move the pieces around the side walls in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. Your best score comes from quick, accurate placement of pieces on the bottom grid. Unlike TETRIS you will be removing columns as well as rows in this dimensional puzzler. There are other surprises in store in WELLTRIS, but you just have to see it for yourself. WELLTRIS - another name for "addictive!"
