TextTris is a twist on the traditional Tetris/Falling blocks game, in that the object is to try to spell words with the words. You score points depending on the length of the words and the letters that you're able to use. Single letters fall out of the tube at the top of the screen and you must arrange them into words. There are plenty of options that you can set before the game begins. The graphics aren't great (of course, its a puzzle game ...) but the gameplay actually works quite well. (The sound doesn't seem to work in DOSBox, so leave it off if you want to run the game there.)
