Four Up




Published in the book The Giant Book Of Games For Your BBC Micro from Fontana Publishing. The book contains the following description:

In this game, as its name implies, the aim is to get four of your pieces in a line in any direction before the computer manages to do this with its pieces.

Once you've decided which column you wish to move into, the piece drops to the lowest available position in that column.

The computer plays this game fairly well, and surprisingly quickly, when you see how many loops it has to go through.

In this version of Four Up, the BBC Micro always allows the human to have the first move, and bases its initial move on the move made by the human.
