NAME
       Fours - collection of simple Tetris-like	games

SYNTAX
       Fours [-scores]

DESCRIPTION
       These  are  simple games	of real-time bin packing.  During the game ob-
       jects composed of 2, 3, 4 or 5 squares appear at	the top	of  board  and
       drift downward.	They stop when they land on the	bottom of the board or
       another object.	During an object's fall, you can control the  location
       and  orientation	of the object.	The following keys control falling ob-
       jects:

	      d	    - moves the	object 1 square	to the left
	      f	    - rotates the object 90 degrees counterclockwise
	      j	    - rotates the object 90 degrees clockwise
	      k	    - moves the	object 1 square	to the right
	      space - drops the	object as many squares as possible
			and scores points

       Whenever	a solid	row of objects is built, the row disappers and	you're
       awarded	some  points.  The game	is finished when an object is stuck in
       the top row.

       The object is to	score more points than anyone else you know.

       Click "Go" to start the game.

       If "-scores" is specified, the score file is printed  and  no  game  is
       started.

       Your  best  score  is  retained in a file.  If the environment variable
       "GAMEALIAS" is defined, it will be used as your name in the score file.
       Otherwise, your login name is used.

BUGS/MISFEATURES
       Be serious, this	is a quick hack.

TASKS FOR THE BORED
	   Do a	better job with	the animation.

	   Add non-90-degree rotations.

	   Add sound effects.

	   Pick	beautiful colors.

	   Build a multi-player	version....

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
       I saw a similar game called "tetris" on a PC.
