The Amiga Future 142 was released on the January 9th.
ictris is a highly addictive, involving puzzle game. The object of it is simple, you are given a blank grid and you must find a picture hidden within it. To make it easier, you are given the numbers of consecutive blocks in the rows and columns to use to solve the picture.
Although this may seem simple, whenever you make a mistake time is deducted from your clock. If you run out of time, then you'll have to start that level again. All your attempts are recorded automatically, and hi-scores are kept.
The game is divided into 3 separate difficulty levels, and a tutorial mode.
Although the first time you play it, it may seem difficult to play, after you get the hang of it (pay close attention to the tips in the guide file and tutorial) you'll find it very rewarding, and hard to put down
Pictris requires an 020+ Amiga with AGA or a GFX card, and at least 1.4 megs of free chip and 4 megs of fast. It is released on CD only, but can be run without installing to hard drive. (it does need somewhere with write access for save files however).
