Have you ever wished your screen saver would do something besides-just save screens? Are you short of room-and need things to do double duty around this joint? Then this one is for you. Play with your screensaver.

Your screensaver is the classic game Tetris. While you are not around, it will play with itself, dropping the shapes down the middle of the screen, while the left and right sides are taken up by the score box, the next shape box, and the background, which is a pretty picture that changes every so often.

You can access the screens necessary to setup your game either by going to control panel, display, screen saver, or by clicking on a shortcut for the exe file. Then you can see the top 10 list, access the homepage for this program, change the level it starts on, change the difficulty level, which consists of arcade, normal, hard, very hard, and blitz. You can also register from there, turn on or off the sound, music, or the small clock that appears on the screensaver, see the help file, setup password protection, [which is only good on the registered version, and change the options, which determines whether starting the game from screensaver mode will be a keystroke or movement of the mouse. Default is mouse runs off the screensaver, and keystroke starts the game. Finally, you can start a game right from there, and not have to wait for the screensaver to appear

This is a pretty slick program, the game is as enjoyable as it always was, and the screensaver works good. If you're not sure, download it for free, and try it out. If you like it the price is good, isn't it?.
