About the game

If you like Tetris TM, and looking for a simple way to extend your experience to a new dimension, check this out.  You  probably wouldn't  think of anything easier  (and  more addictive) than packing rectangular prisms  ("3D oblongs") having at least two reebs (sides) of same size, and this is what the game is about !

Originally released in 1990 by Simsalabim Software (Max Shapiro & Per Bergland),  FRAC  very soon became a bestseller in  Mac and MS DOS world and still has supporters all over the world.  For Linux the code was rewritten completely from scratch  with adding 'demo' mode,  256colour support, and more.and  and released in 2000  as ifrac.  Windows part of ifrac (wifrac) appeared in 2001.

This release is based on my Palm release (PiFrac) appeared a month earlier for which the code was substantially revised.

Features:

  • More relaxed  game conditions:  rollover from level 9 back to level 1 (registered version only)
  • Consistent scroring: the  new scoring system encourages skipping levels or starting with a non-empty keybopard
  • Local table of high scores (number of scores depends on the implementation)
  • World-wide score table on the web (up to 60 entries) 
  • Demo mode (plays itself!) - unavailable for Nokia series 30
  • Sound effects (Nokia 7210, Motorola A830 and i95cl)
  • Background music

Currently supported J2ME MIDP devices are

  • Siemens  - all J2ME models
  • Nokia Series 40 - all models   
  • Nokia Series 30 - minimum 50MB midlet suit:  3410, 3510i   
  • Motorola - T720, A830, i95cl
  • Ericsson  T610 and P800 - experimental-
  • A generic J2ME device with MMAPI support (AMR, WAV, MIDI sounds) - experimental
  • A generic J2ME device with screen size 120x160 or more (no sound support)
FYI  Given a variety of mobile phone manufactiurers, we can't test the application anywhere. Please, try before you buy, and your feedback of any king is extremely regarded.
