Petris is a single player, shareware, game which plays a bit like Tetris, however unlike Tetris the blocks do not fall automatically - they are steered into position with the arrow keys. This game has four levels of difficulty:
  • Level 1: The easy game
  • Level 2: Like level 1 but there is a time limit during which the block must be dropped
  • Level 3: Here the block cannot be flipped, what you see is what you drop
  • Level 4: Both prevents a block being flipped and has a time limit during which it must be dropped
The player scores points for each completed row.

The game is entirely keyboard controlled, has sound effects, and uses character graphics.
