Blockbuster is a computer version of the N game, and it's a good one too. A game to test general knowledge, spelling and speed of recall which may be played by one player against the computer or between two players. The general object of the game is simplicity in itself, but the content makes for a lively and playable one.
The screen is broken up into 25 six-sided blocks, interleaved like a honeycomb, so that there are five vertical columns of five blocks. The blocks are coloured yellow and the object is for the player (or player 1) to make a linked bridge from left to right or vice versa, while the computer (or player 2) does the same vertically. Player 1 makes the blocks turn blue with a correct answer and player 2 turns them white.
At the start of a game the players are asked their names and the skill level desired (1 to 9). Then the blocks appear with the central one being 'free'. Randomly chosen letters appear in the rest. The first player then chooses which block he wishes to conquer and a question appears below the screen asking the player to identify and spell out whatever word the computer chooses which begins with the initial letter in the block. The trick here is that the question is open to both players (or the computer), with player 1 using left hand keys to interrupt and player 2 using the right hand keys. It is possible to interrupt before the question is complete. An incorrect answer will award the block to the player's opponent, and the first to complete their bridge across the screen wins.
