A fun platformer with a Tetris twist, gotta love creative ways to keep classics alive!



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Neat idea, just not well done.

I can see where you are going with this, and for that, I really like it. But, as others pointed out, the randomization of the available pieces made this less of the puzzle-platformer that you were aiming for and more of an exercise of luck. Also, because of the random pieces, the walkthrough is pretty much worthless.

On a more minor note, the text in the game could be bigger, and the fact that you included a restart key (that's the "R" key, to anyone reading), but never told the player about that in the game from the onset just came off as ridiculous to me.

The playing field...

...It is random, and jagged.

Solid concept, but needs work

Building off of the Tetris gameplay style and making it into a platformer is a very interesting idea, and it does play well as far as that concept goes, needing to use Tetris logic to overcome obstacles. The problem with this is that the pieces randomly generate, this becomes an issue for the style of game you are creating for three reasons, 1: There is no real solution to a puzzle, only vague answers involving stairs, 2: Because of the random generation the walkthrough is next to useless for the harder puzzles as the methods in them cannot be replicated to reach the same result. And three more time is spent hitting the reset button and redoing levels than actually accomplishing anything in the game because you where not given an adequate number or style of piece to complete whatever set of stairs you were building. Long story short, it is a very nice concept, and it would be very fun without all the frustration. Needs work, but is above average.

good, but...

It ramps up the difficulty too fast. Its a really awesome concept.

Great game!

You're a genius man! Incredible idea, to mix tetris and plataform...just a sugestion, it could have "themes", like medieval or something as you're progressing in the game. And so the tetris song could have more variety of styles.
And about the "restart button", they're right, you could make it visible, because some people don't know that most plataform games you just have to press "R" like you did.
