Description (by MrFlibble)

Floatris is a Tetris variant that spices things up with eight wells instead of just one, which are also turned upside-down compared to the original Tetris game. Some original non-tetromino pieces are also added into the mix.

The game starts at a relatively slow pace, with pieces appearing in one well after another so there's enough time to switch between wells. But as the game progresses, more pieces starts to appear in different wells at once.

Floatris was marketed as shareware and the unregistered version can be freely copied. Registered users would receive an updated game with more piece types and other bonuses.
