Wordtris is a puzzle game based on the popular puzzle game Tetris. The player must line up words horizontally or vertically to spell words. Instead of level numbers, the levels are represented in letters. The game stops at Level J and keeps going until the player loses. Every time the level changes, there is a different background image with a Russian theme and a short music number.
The game claims the music is Russian-style and it is. Ed Bogas did a really good job at writing the music. Unfortunately, the music won't loop. Ed wrote MIDI files in Super Studio Session which were then converted to AdLib Visual Composer (DOS). This could be because the AdLib version was written on AdLib Visual Composer, which didn't have a loop option. The MIDI version doesn't loop either though. This could be because Ed Bogas thought that since the AdLib version didn't loop music, then the MIDI version shouldn't either.
The AdLib recording starts with a 1, the MT-32 recording starts with a 2, and the Tandy 3 Voice recording starts with a 3.
