This is "sequel" of sorts to the classic Tetris: this time you must deal with tiles in 3D, coming in from all 4 sides of a well (hence the name). The game certainly retains the addictiveness of the original, while making the concept even more difficult -- now you must contend with filling 5 surfaces instead of one (the 4 walls, plus the well bottom). Graphics is not as good as the original, but then again that's not what will keep us playing :)

This game had a lot of hype and a lot of anticipation behind it, based on the success of Tetris. It wound up being a major flop sales-wise, because what looked great in concept - Tetris from four sides and not just top-down - made for some really difficult gameplay. Someone did a shareware variant on this where instead of revolving the pieces around the shaft, you rotated the target base and game play worked significantly better. Sad I can't find a copy of it online anywhere, otherwise I'd post the link here :(
