Game Play

You are holding a die. You press a buttom to make it cycle through the numbers, one through six. Make you die match one of the ones above you then press a button to throw your die. If your die matches the one you just launched it at the die you hit will appear at the bottom of the screen, below you. When you get three or more dice lined up at the bottom, push down on your joystick and depending on the pattern you have created the dice above you will disappear from the bottom, either one to five rows. If the decending dice reach you at the bottom, game is over.
