Balltris is a twist on the typical Tetris and Columns formulas. Actually it's a bit like a combination of the two. Groups of 1-3 colored balls drop from the top of the screen, and you must rotate them and place them into the well, attempting to match sets of 3 or more of the same color. When a match of 3+ occurs, those balls disappear. That's pretty much it, except that you're given three "special effects" (push F1 to use one, or push ? to see all of the keys) which can help you out if you get into trouble. It plays quite well and looks nice enough but not many options.
You must use the NUMERIC KEYPAD! If your keyboard doesn't have one, you're out of luck!
