"A reverse tetris concept. Climb as high as you can before the lava catches you!"

Known Glitches:
Random Dying
Blocks stop falling

Know Annoyances:
No escape.

This is a game of LUCK with a pinch of skill, some people find they can carry on for meters and meters whereas some get trapped or blocks just fall in the wrong places fairly early. There is a highscore for competitivness ;)

If you want the achievements to count for somthing then I recommend you register at nonoba:
http://www.nonoba.com/tob y/ruins-the-pit (game link, make sure you remove the space between the b and y)
where you can gain achievements for you efforts :)

I hope you enjoy this little frustrating game.

Keys - Move (W,A,S,D also work)
Mouse - Teleport

Ruins 2 will have a mode with predefined paths as well as a mode similar to this, it will also be actionscript 3 so the lag won't be as big an issue!

this game is made to shottily to enjoy, the fact that you are entirely incapable of using any finess to manouver yourself in the air makes this entirely a game of chance and therefore a terrible boring waste of time.

Game was alright...

Sometimes the blocks wouldn't come down and i would just die. Not sure if that's intentional. Seems like it could be a solid game with a bit more improvement and better music.


nice game, only the music gets annoying, so it would be great if add a mute button.

I enjoyed it

for awhile. but why use tetris blocks?
not many complaints

Not bad

That was somewhat entertaining.
