History.dat entry:
Cachat (c) 1993 Taito Corp.

Cachat is a very challenging puzzle game where you must complete a line from one electrode along the sides to another, same side or other side. Blocks fall from the top of the screen, but if they reach the top of the playing area, the game is over. This mind-blowing fast game is very highly addictive. The gameplay is quite easy but requires a lot of attention.

- TECHNICAL -

Taito L System hardware

Main CPU : Zilog Z80 (@ 6 Mhz)
Sound Chips : YM2203 (@ 3 Mhz)

Players : 2
Control : 8-way joystick

- TRIVIA -

This game is known outside Japan as "Tube-It".

- TIPS AND TRICKS -

If you want the blocks at the same slow speed make sure to create a few larger chains, instead of making smaller chains which increases the the speed of boxes falling down.
