Emulation
This game works with: Basilisk II,

3Tris (or the slightly newer 3Wiz!) is a three-dimensional version of the ubiquitous Tetris game. It was made by a student as a hobby originally to play by himself, so, even though you must only fill a 5x5 grid, the additional dimension makes this a very difficult game. There are few options to make the game easier: by adding some depth and avoiding some difficult shapes (using only 2D shapes) but nevertheless it does require some time to master.

During its life, the game changed name from 3Tris to 3Wiz!, and was made available in both color and black and white. The author calls it "the game you'll really hate" because of its difficulty, especially in the beginning.

I was the author, 3Tris and 3Wiz! are the same game, it was just a change of naming, you can still download the latest version from the "ancient" retro web site here http://esurfers.com/francesco/gadgets.htm

I was (and still am) awful at this game. My 3-D spatial awareness sucked to high heaven. Oh well, My sister and best friend battled each other for supremacy on my brother's Performa 475 (I still hate the name Performa, but that is what it is) and I could do little more than watch on.
