not bad but...

despite the diffuculty and the "u need specific shapes in this level to go on" there are two other things that bother me
first the size of the window. (if i am stupid here please smack me) the stardard size is too small and the enlarged one is too big. something in between would work way better.
and the other twing is the presentation. the pixel style is part of the whole thing i know but when you are not concentrating on the block placing what do you have left? ONE tetris theme and muuuuch gray rooms. it's just not that appealing

all in all: good idea, but needs more je-ne-sais-qoui to keep the players attention
sry for bad english, anachon out

AAAAAAAH, LEVEL 7 AAAAAAAAH

Fuck, there has got to be a better way of doing that... I always hit the block to the side of me as well, and my path back up to the "surface" evaporates. It's frustrating as hell. Sorry I can't offer any ideas on how to fix it...

I can be better

I won't whine about lvl 7, that has been said before.

I would like to ask, why the tetris pieces aren't preset? It's not hard to arrange them, but sometimes i needed more than 5 tries before i could get the right pieces to complete a level.

Needs moar work. But it's a good idea.

Interesting but frustrating

This game had a lot of potential. A lot of people's frustrations obviously come from not knowing a few of the little tricks you can do while platforming (like the C shaped jump you can do while directly under a block with an open space above it), which allow you a lot more flexibility with placement of the tetris pieces. After discovering this I actually started having fun!

In the end though that fun was crushed by you going out of your way to make placing the tetris pieces a frustrating experience, if not the most frustrating experience possible. Placing the pieces is by far the most time consuming part of this game as a single error anywhere in the process sends you back to the very beginning. This isn't so bad early on but later, some of the longer puzzles have you placing a ton of pieces that must be played extremely precisely in order to complete the level. When combined with being handed pieces at random it makes getting through the later levels much more of an action/arcade style game than a puzzle type (and people who like puzzle games don't necessarily have quick coordinated fingers, you know).

You just go out of your way to make completing levels really hard and frustrating for no good reason. I'd really suggest dialing back the difficultly of placing pieces and allowing you to just restart the platforming bit rather than absolutely everything. Personally I'd even remove the random pieces and probable the automatic part of the falling as well.

If you make the above changes you could then also use nonrandom pieces to help introduce people to a few of the platforming tricks at different stages in the game and in general make the difficulty curve a lot smoother and much less jagged.
