Under Pressure is a single player, block moving, puzzler.

The player starts with a play area in which there is a grid containing coloured shapes. These must be moved to matching 'energy tanks' in the walls of the game area without touching the sides of the arena.
All game play is mouse controlled. The cursor is an arrow which occupies one cell in the arena and is moves by the mouse. The direction of the arrow rotates through ninety degrees with each right mouse click, all cells in the row/column selected by the arrow move one position in the direction of the arrow for every left mouse click, thus the player can select and move the shapes into the energy tanks.

All levels are timed
