You were challenged to reproduce an ever-growing sequence of flashing lights and musical tones,
using four colored buttons.
Its great success and simplicity spawned a huge number of imitators, and was largely responsible
for the hand-held electronic game craze which continues to this day.
At the beginning of a round, one of these panels will flash briefly, and if the Sound Mode
is on, a tone will play (See Sound Mode in COMMANDS AND TOGGLES section of this file).
You must then repeat that "sequence" by pressing the correct key on the numeric keypad of your
keyboard. Figure 2 shows how the keys correspond to the panels. If you repeat the sequence
correctly, the computer replays the sequence, adding one more panel.
This continues, with you repeating an increasingly long sequence of panels, until you make
a mistake, or you complete the sequence.
Each round plays a little faster, and has a longer sequence of panels to complete!
Points are accumulated for every correct panel, and bonus points are given for completing
a sequence. At the end of four rounds, high score wins!
