Game keys:

* Playing the game + Game purpose: fill horizontal lines of squares, making them disappear. + Your possible actions on the falling piece: Rotate piece, Move piece to Right/Left, Throw piece down. + The game will end when the table is so covered by incomplete horizontal lines than there is no space for the incoming piece. + And try to make as many points as possible! * The arrows will control the movements of the falling piece: + The LEFT key will move the piece to the left + The RIGHT key will move the piece to the right + The UP key will rotate the piece + The DOWN key will throw the piece down * You also have two alternative sets of keys: [i,j,k,l] and [8,4,6,0]: + The [j] or [4] key will move the piece to the left + The [l] or [6] key will move the piece to the right + The [i] or [8] key will rotate the piece + The [k] or [0] key will throw the piece down On some platforms, if you have the focus on a button, you can press the SPACE key to activate that button. But please, just don't mistake "Pause" with "New"!

The scoring system:

* Things taken in consideration when computing the score for a placed piece: + If the "Next Piece Preview" option is ON + Game level + How far from the bottom of the table the piece was * Things taken in consideration when computing the score for a filled line: + If the "Next Piece Preview" option is ON + How far from the bottom of the table the line was + How many lines did you fill at once Any entry in the TOP100 will stay there for at most 30 days, after which it will be considered "old" and automatically removed. In this way, the TOP will refresh itself and any new player will have a chance.

What is Pentix?

Essentially, it is the same game as Tetris, with the exception that the set of pieces is extended, they are made from 1 to 5 squares, not only 4. This gives the possibility of a much bigger number of pieces (almost 30), with stranger shapes. The game is a little more difficult, but it is also much more exciting!
