Fallout Alternate Version (fallout_old.zip, 25k) - This seems to be an alternate, probably older version with a different menu interface and other minor changes.
Fallout (no relation to the popular Interplay/Bethesda developed series of RPGs) is a decent-looking variant of the Tetris / Columns style game. It plays mostly like Columns, except that you can both change the order of the three falling blocks, and also switch the triad's orientation from vertical to horizontal. The level setting changes the game's speed, while the difficulty setting chooses how many different colors/patterns are in play, with more of course making the game harder. You can change the tileset by pressing '+' during the game, which I remember being fun when I first played this many, many years ago! (This is referred to in-game as "Fallout 1" but I'm unaware of any sequel.)
