This is a clon (more or less) of SameGame, a tile-matching puzzle video game, originally released under the name Chain Shot! in 1985 by Kuniaki Moribe (Morisuke).
This game it's derived from my own previous Blocks for CP/M, now ported to the new KS library.
It should run in any version of the CP/M operating system, running in any computer with a supported CRT, and a Z80 CPU.
To start the game, type at the CP/M prompt the following:
TTY_NAME is one of the supported TTY names,
and follow the instructions.
To know the supported TTYs, just type
blocks at the CP/M prompt - ie:
A>blocks Usage: blocks tty_name Supported TTY names: VT52 VT100 PCW CPC SPECTRUM KAYPRO
The object of the game is to remove all the blocks on the board.
You can select just one block, or a group of blocks of the same type.
Then, if you are in the normal mode, you can place all the blocks against a side (top, bottom, left or right).
If you are in the automatic mode, the blocks rows will be placed on the bottom side of the board, and the columns will be placed on the middle of the board.
The partial score is the square of the number of selected blocks.
The special block 'X', multiplies that result by 10.
