Now this is a playable version. It only have one player normal mode, througth. The player scores are recorded in the player statistics (there isn't a global hi-scores table yet)
You can put your own background images and make (and use) your own blocks!
Overall Rating: 8.9
- Tetris clone? Look no further, this one has everything. Responsive control and clean sound. You get a nice soft click instead of an annoying 'clack' I expect from other tetris clones. Great music selection, too. The only down side (?) is too many menus and options. Just take me to the game!
- Well done!Graphics(80%),sounds(85%),fun(85%) and many supproted languages.
I just didn't like that some options weren't avaibale right now and that the game doesn't save your highscores.
- Amazingly configurable. Great audio and visuals. Too bad it seems to have been abandoned without first implementing the crucial highscores feature.
