Fallout is a single player, keyboard controlled, tile matching game. Blocks fall from the top of the screen. They are always three coloured bricks long and the object of the game is to create horizontal, vertical or diagonal strings, of the same coloured brick that are three or more bricks on length. Such strings explode and disappear scoring the player points and causing the blocks above to drop down to fill any vacant slots. Occasionally the falling bock contains a bomb that can be used to blow up nearby bricks.
There is sound and a boss key and a high score table.
This version of Fallout was designed for personal computers with operating system MS-DOS (Microsoft Disk Operating System),
which was operating system developed by Microsoft in 1981. It was the most widely-used operating system in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was supplied
with most of the IBM computers that purchased a license from Microsoft. After 1995, it was pushed out by a graphically more advanced system - Windows and
its development was ceased in 2000. At the
time of its greatest fame, several thousand games designed specifically for computers with this system were created. Today, its development is no longer continue
and for emulation the free DOSBox emulator is most often used. More information about MS-DOS operating system can be found
