Playfield

The playfield is a 15 row x 6 column grid. The top 2 rows are hidden (rows -2 and -1).

The playfield starts at $0380 and each row is represented by 8 bytes: 00 XX XX XX XX XX XX 00, where XX is a jewel color value.

The falling column spawns at row 0 and column 3 and it is drawn by modifying playfield memory as opposed to separate sprites. Those coordinates represent the bottom jewel of the column. The top and middle jewels are initially hidden in rows -2 and -1, respectively. The game ends if there is no space to spawn a new column or if the falling column locks such that its top and middle jewels are located in either of the hidden rows.

Jewel Colors

The following values are used for the playfield cells and for the current/next top/middle/bottom colors:

0 - empty cell

1 - red

2 - purple

3 - yellow

4 - orange

5 - blue

6 - green

7 - wild

Wilds appear as an X. They always spawn as a column of 3 wilds. And, if a wild column lands on the playfield floor, it vanishes. However, if it lands on a jewel, then all 3 wilds become the color of that jewel and subsequentially, all jewels of that color in the entire playfield vanish.
