This second cassette in the Braintwisters series consists of two well-known programs - Solitaire and Echo.
The object of Solitaire is to rearrange rows of cards, so that each row is made up of cards of the same colour. There are dots on the cards, too, and to complete the game the dots must run in order from one, on the left-hand side of the screen, to nine, on the right.
There are two skill levels, the hardest being rather pointless, as the game could be impossible to complete. Solitaire is, of course, for one player only.
Echo, the second game on the cassette, is amazingly similar to a popular electronic game.
The object of the game, for those of who don't know, is to repeat various sequences of lights/sounds made by the computer.
The computer starts off by playing three random notes. If you repeat these without any mistakes, an extra note will be added to the sequence. This carries on until you make a mistake.
There is a time limit on how long you have to respond, which decreases as you reach higher levels.
