The largest Tetris playing field known to man. Can you clear a few lines? Ultimate timewaster!

theres no way in hell im going to finish the game but thats why its good lol

Tetris High Definiton? You mean Tetris High Resolution :D. Anyways, this is a Tetris. I love Tetris.

Nice idea. But if i were grandpa i wouldn't see a shit.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Best Tetris ever! xD

After a few seconds I realized I was wasting my time trying to beat this game xD so I just holded the space key for a few minutes but still xD it's pretty hard to lose in this tetris :D

Nice job xD Tetris HD FTW

One huge suggestion. Down shouldn't turn the piece it should speed up it's fall but not drop it. I use that all the time on a regular tetris game. There is no way I am boored enough to wait for pieces to drop to the last line on this one. Sorry but that totaly knocked your score way back with me.

3/5 6/10

Are you up for a challeng?

Ok, now this is challenging.
And you only give 5 minutes of pause?

The only problem is that the pieces are way too small. I had to be very close to my monitor to see exactly where the pieces were falling.
But I like the idea... and the colors too


Rated 4 / 5 stars


you fucking asshole! ;) this game is awesome! but i think its to small... make the blocks a little bigger, you need to have a 30" screen to see them really good:D

Absolutely Insane :/#)(\

Just like you said, total time waster, even to get one line!!!

This is freakin' great. I love the sense of humor behind it. Also people, I don't think the game was meant to be a practical one. 10/10 for innovation and funnyness.

yeah right...

after laying like 4 blocks i decided to stop playing... the last block i droped hasnt landed since ive been typing this comment

bad-ass it took me 28 minutes to get one line :P amazing game


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Nice idea.

I love the idea, but it's a bit big. It's very hard to see the pieces. If it was maybe half the size I would play it for a long time.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

loven it

i love it i let it fall for two hours strait (w/ space) and i just lost soo mutch fun


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I cannot see the lines!

After messing up one little square, you feel amost as if ou need to start over.

It's a really fun game.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

I left a hole

the beauty of the original was the fact in was about 7 rows across. not a gazillion. if it was multiplayer, with say 15-20 fine.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


Would make a great screensaver ^_^


Rated 0.5 / 5 stars


but no thanks!


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


A good way to improve this game is adding like a "ghost" block on the bottom of the screen, meant to preview the position of the piece, so I won't have to stick my face in the screen just to find out where it's going to land.

Also adding an option focused in making this faster would be neat

Until then this is literally like playing Hide and seek in the middle of the goddamn desert.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Made me laugh.

Almost fell over laughing when i tried playing this, spent 15 minutes before declaring that I don't have the patience to finish making a tetris ><. (had about 2 and a half rows ready)

Nice time wasting variant of tetris, great for if people want to just fit blocks together I suppose.

Oh, and to the people who are complaining that they don't know what is coming next or where... there IS a "ghost block" on the top of the screen which shows up at the point where the next block is coming from, and also shows what block it will be. Look at the top of the screen. Really.
9/10 (because the game had slightly sticky keys with the blocks spinning irregularly with spacebar being held. Not that it was an issue as it still took a good 10 seconds to hit the floor lol.)

The is a great commentary on how HD reboots of games aren't always a winning formula. Great work.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great time waster.

I liked the sheer size of map, but i feel like we should have been able to zoom in on specific parts, you know just to see where the piece would land...

Also for the people complaining about the blocks falling too slowly hit the "Key" button in the upper right corner of the screen, it will change the bindings to space being the piece turner, down being the speed up and up being the super speed up.

And yes there is a ghost piece at the top which tells you exactly where it will spawn and what piece it will be.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Pretty american in its size

Indeed epic time waster.
It whoud be good to have zoom option and speed up space bar.

Oh man!

Do you have any idea of the frustration it is to misplace a piece on your first line and realize you'll need an eternity to fix it? The game is great!

Thats diffrent

This is torture no tetris is slow no musik and hell how had u got the idea to make this cruelity but i gave you a 5 on the oover vote because of the suprize factor but a too for beeing a shitty game


Rated 0 / 5 stars

You know what??!!

The fun of original tetris was in the little space to play, the rush of accomodate the pieces cuz of its speed, complete a line and disappear it wich, by the way, in your stupid game could take hours!!
Well,, in summary,, ur game sucks man...


Rated 0 / 5 stars

Just Horrible.

there is absolutely nothing fun about this. It's not even a time water bc after 15 seconds I realized that it's simply a waste of time and stopped.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

You people are assholes

'Oh it's not a time waster becaus it wastes so much time' , 'Oh there's too much space' Whine whine whine. Bitches are just annoyed because they couldn't make one damn line. Well I did! Suck it.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Its great.

First of all i would like to tell everyone who watched this and rated it a zero because it's stupid to shut up. It's called a time waster. Its meant to waste time. So yes, it would indeed take an hour and a half to clear one line. But guess what, your wasting time! Just like it said it would. So going by the description, this is indeed THE ULTIMATE time waster.

To the creator...damn man. This is such a waste of life! hahaha


Rated 4 / 5 stars

A good laugh

Haha I love the fact that people are butthurt over "tetris is supposed to have a small space" "too long to make a line" "boring"... people not getting the joke makes the whole thing even more funny

In case you didn't know space will will speed up the fall, unless you press the "key" button, which will make the down arrow speed it up and the spacebar to flip... but is there a zoom in function? My eyes hurt.

Oh, I made one line. Finest achievement of my life.

It was a glorious occasion. it took me forever though, but this _is_ a time waster after all.


Rated 1 / 5 stars

Poor Attempt

If your attempt was to create an eyestrain waste of time, you succeeded.
Since anyone can create a waste of time, you lose significant points because of it.

The design of the game is not original, there have been countless clones of Tetris, ignoring that I've seen this in many other locations, this is not a very original idea. There are many ways that you could have made this game more appealing to players. I would have loved to have some cool looking graphics on the side telling me what would be coming next. Another idea to make the game even more fun is to provide a secondary camera that is focused on the active block, thus allowing players to have more precision when placing a block.
While I don't always like music in games, it's always a good option to have some in game music, especially when making a game that is intended to take a very long time. Obviously there should be a mute button for players that don't want to hear the same music over and over again, but the option would help.
The current interface is not much, it's very basic, a few more colors and the game could be significantly more aesthetically appealing to the players. The sound effects do enough, but they could still be improved.
Overall, the lack of color, the sub-par idea, the eyestrain, and the overall dull appeal of the game leaves the player with a desire for something more without having to ultimately change the concept of the game.

OMG! I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! like this game


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

There is a saying...

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

I play tetris alot.

Here is a list of things you need to fix to have this game be comparable to real tetris:
1)hard drop
2)hold feature
3)ghost piece
4)wall kicking (better rotation)
5)improved color scheme. These blocks are NOT properly colored.
Beyond that, this is a decent game, but far from great. The two primary suggestions I would make are as follows:
1) add music. Simple enough.
2) add multiplayer. Theres a DS game where you can play a game of widescreen tetris with a partner. This screen is a significant amount wider, and it would be alot more fun to play on if 4 or 5 people could play it together.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Dot Dot Dot

The only reson I gave this game a ten is beacuase the pieces where pretty small!


Rated 1 / 5 stars


The main reason I give you a two for this is the fact that this is sheerly impossible. Other than that, It is far too large. It would take hours to get a single line cleared, so it was a total waste of time, as you said (by the way, that isn't a good thing).

Maybe make a smaller screen or bigger pieces to make it less of a waste of time. Azoom function may also help. Music would be enjoyable, too, if you want to come close to the orginal classic tetris.


Rated 3 / 5 stars


Not bad but not good either
It is the biggest game indeed, but it would have been better with bigger pieces. Also, no music? The right music makes the games more enjoyable.
Maybe in a future submission it will be better.
Its a good work, just needs some details, thats all


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Funny idea. Not so funny game.

This might work as some kind of satire (though I don't quite get the joke), but the field is TOO big for it to make sense as an actual game.

YAY! my score is...

1 line, 20 points, in about 30 mins. I AM DA BEST! great game but you'd have to give up you life to get a good score by the way, Jzonanos is stoopid. it only take 30 minutes. not an ower. although i do agree it is too large


Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

sadly horrible

just a horrible game im sorry to say but I give you a one just for effort. this could of been a good game but you just made it too big and the pieces too small.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Too big

I figured I would humor this game and played through 1 line. It took me 20 minutes. I was straining my eyes to see most of the time. It's a good concept for a twist on tetris, but it needs tweaking.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Hoo boy...

Man oh man oh man... Are you serious? Ultimate time-waster indeed, but this is crazy, yo. It takes so long to make a line, and it's hard to see what you're doing, exactly. And you know what takes longer to do than make a line? Lose! I'm giving you points for effort and some originality, but I think that if you really want to make a good and crazy Tetris like this, improve upon the system. You got some chuckles out of me and my folks, but this may be the only way to make Tetris BAD.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Block placing that's more tedious than Minecraft.

With a playfield a few 100 (or maybe closer to a thousand) blocks wide and a height around 2/3 of that (which results in a block free-fall time around 1 minute and 2-3 seconds), you would be tempted to say that you have room for error... Which, paradoxically, is exactly what you DON'T have! One mistake, and you've wasted somewhere between a few seconds and 20-30 minutes of block-placement, just to make a tiny hole you'd have to erase the row above in order to fix... which takes another half our or so to do, assuming you don't f**k up again... *sigh*
The obvious being said, a few changes might be in order:
1. The white background is eye-burning. If it could just be changed into something less straining...
2. I see the joke in only being able to pause the game once for 5 minutes, but really, i think removing that one-shot limit would give the game a bit replayability. I could see someone playing for like 15 minutes, pausing, getting on with their lives, then get back for another 15 minutes ect.
3. As rubikks suggested below, adding music would be a plus.
4. Staying with that, one-field multiplayer HD tetris doesn't sounds so bad!.. X'cept it would be a griefers paradise.

With all this being said... I'm afraid this game might work better as a screensaver. Hell, i'm tempted at just letting the game run, place something heavy on the spacebar, go to bed, and watch the results next morning!

those writing negative reviews do not understand the beauty in this game, nor do they value the humor behind it. I can't stop giggling.

Bad game.

The game isn't fun to play, nor is it funny. The only reason I gave this a 1 instead of a 0 is that you put in the effort to make a working flash game.

Rated 3 / 5 stars


Great game? Not really.

Great spin on an old hat? Definitely, just not executed all that well.

First off, I'm writing this review in the time is takes to move 2 blocks, not pressing spacebar. That should be a bit of an indicator there. I love that you've expanded tetris to such a wide berth, but this is far to wide, tall, and thus slow moving that it's simply tedious to play. If you cut the playing field in half, or quartered it maybe, then we'd have a legitimately novel remake of the game with a great hook and some playability. Anything you could add after that (powerups or whatever, there's a host of ideas out there) would just be icing on the cake.

I think that you've just grabbed a great game concept and taken it to the extreme without thought to balance issues, or to challenge (which really go hand in hand). A bit of moderation would do you well, and I think you could make a great tetris clone with this basic idea. Unfortunately, this particular game falls short of entertaining, at least for me.

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Serious lack of sound.

My one big concern is the lack of any sort of music.

This game is by far too boring with no background sounds.

Also, everything is too small.
I know the point of the game was to make it a lot widerthan the original,
but that was TOO wide.
I couldn't see what I was doing too well.

Not to mention there was no way I was going to sit there THAT long to even bother making a single line.

Another note, having a wider Tetris actually makes it easier to play, you have near infinite room for error.
The reason Tertric works so well on a small playing area is that it actually requires you to think and act quickly and make smart moves.

With this, I can't even fathom how long I could play this making bad move after bad move and still never lose.

waste of time

absolute waste of time.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not what I thought

Great game and concept, but i would have two requests for the game. 1)Make the width and heith smaller, I couldn't fir the whole game on my screen and that ruins the funness of a game a little bit. 2) Make it so that ther is an actual way to lose the game, I tried to lose, but could do nothing but not die.


Rated 0 / 5 stars

i see what you were trying to do

i once played a normal game of tetris for 2 hours, but this just doesnt hit the fun factor. i admire you trying to make the gameboard bigger but then it takes a long time to get a score. i predict it would take about 40 min just to clear a row where as in a normal tetris game it would be 10 secs. so maybe update it, make the shapes bigger, make them fall from the middle, put in power ups, put in some music and make it have a really eye catching backround. right now it seems abit too dull.


Rated 0 / 5 stars


I think its more fun to try and lose as fast as possile. I managed to lose in about 10 mins. Try and beat that.
Its still a rubbish game.


Rated 0 / 5 stars

fail (should be an epic fail)

1) the pieces are so small that it hurts to look at them
2) getting the spacing perfect is near impossible.
3) music is missing
4) some of the colors (yellow and gray) on the white background are hard to tell where they are lined up to or if there is a piece even there.

the list could go on and on, but this concept from the original game was tedious enough, to blow it up to make it this size is a nightmare.


Rated 0 / 5 stars


Tested it and it took me 44 minutes to lose the game by stacking in a tower. horrible horrible game. Its to big to get a line except by taking literally hours to do something.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


The true fun is in the realization that the entire point of the game is to play a cruel joke on the player. Kind of like Desert Bus. Alas, while I appreciate the humor, I can't give a score higher than this. That's reserved for things where the effort truly shows and is more than a quickie gag.

Umm... Horrible twist on a Classic game

Well everyone knows Tetris as a classic simple yet fun addicting game, this has really lowered the bar...

1) The pieces are WAY to small making them hard to align to one another
2) Having the play area so big just makes the game boring and tedious
3) The game is lacking alot of features such as: music, creativity and much, much more...


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Too long to lose! lol

Took 7:38 to get a game over, stacking pieces all the way to the top then hoping for a piece to spawn in the middle.

Problems with the game:
1) The pixels for the tetris pieces don't always line up, sometimes causing one to fudge a piece one column left or right. The pieces also don't seem to be the same size mid-fall as they are when they set; not always, at least.

2) For sanity's sake, I would suggest spawning all pieces in the middle, just as in traditional Tetris.

3) Set a toggle for fall speed.

Optionally, I would also add a wrapping toggle, allowing pieces pushed off the left side to appear on the right. I think it might add an interesting level of play.

If you're at all serious about creating a real version of this game, allow the player to set their own field size.

That's my 2¢.

when you turn or shift a piece during "speedup" it returns to normal speed even if spacebar is still held pressed.

I'm a big tetris fan especially that I reside in the Harddrop community, however this is too much!

Rated 1 / 5 stars

Ultimate bore

Not really a good concept at all. Ok lets make a tetris game but make it huge and boring. There has been a shitload more tetris games done way better than this. You're supposed to play games when you're bored and they're supposed to entertain you... not bore you even further. I never even finished a 10th of a line. Even the controls where bad. Barely touch a button and the piece would spin 4 or 5 times.

Sorry but its not fun.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Nice concept...

But a nice concept is really all it has going for it. It IS the kind of thing a guy with WAY too much free time could do someything awesome with, but for most it's just kinda "meh".

Believe it or not, I actually plan to keep it running until it fills up the screen (or whatever). AFTER OVER 18 HOURS, THE SCREEN IS ONLY ABOUT 1/5 FILLED, this is along with me holding the Up arrow for about 5 minutes in total. (There is an Alt Controls switch at the top right). I'll keep it going and hopefully not miss the point at which it fails.

As the concept DOES kind-of impress me, I give this a...

3 out of 5

Nothing impressive, but it does work. Meh.

This is 1 of those times where bigger is not better.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

It only looks like a tetris game

Might have been hilarious as part of a video, but fails to be a time waster as a game. Time wasters should be pointless but fun, not tedious and boring. I was also disappointed in the lack of wall-kick and hard drop. I couldn't even practice my tetris.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

Too much

I'm sorry, but the game didn't keep my attention long enough to clear a line. I think that it may just be a bit too big for most tetris fans to get their fill. Other than that, its basically the same as any other tetris game. I'd play it if it were a bit smaller, maybe with some music?


Rated 2 / 5 stars

This is a joke, not a game

The subject line above says it all. This submission, while it pretends to be a game, is really more of a joke. Throwing gameplay to the wind, the author of this submission had an idea: "Wouldn't it be hilarious if I took the well-known concept of Tetris, but made the playing area ridiculously large and the pieces hilariously small, so it would take an absolutely aggravating amount of time to complete a line or lose the game, especially since everybody would be required to squint really hard to see what they're doing with those tiny pieces?"

The thing is, it's not that funny. As soon as you open the game, see your playing area, and see your first tiny piece, you get it, and you're ready to move on. It's a little silly, I guess, but it's definitely not playable or fun after making that initial comic impression.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

This is pretty unplayable...

I dropped three pieces before I realized that it will take 15 minutes to get one line. Not a game. It's not even funny... Sorry, but I'll play the original. Thanks

I love it

Only problem is the maximum 5 minute pause, but I feel that it's part of the game's unique charm. I paused it the first time and went out for several hours, and when I came back it was STILL going.

Anyways, this is one of the few games that completely wasted my time that I've enjoyed. Thanks for the experience.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

It does what it says it does...

It's just not very much fun. The only way I would wait long enough to fill out one line is if I knew Christina Hendricks would blow me at least once per Tetris.

But then, masochism is the name of the game, isn't it?


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

...well ok...

pretty cool,but i'd rather play the old tetris...


Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

It took me nine minutes to purposefully lose.

This game is a novelty. It is not fun to play.

As I said, it took me nine minutes to intentionally lose at this game. If I had tried to form any lines, or, god forbid, a tetris, it would have taken me much longer. For just one line.

Not worth it. Tetris isn't this big for a reason.

My highscore is 20, after 20 minutes and 23 seconds with 1 line! Absolutely great!
Did anyone get tetris so far?

Strangely enough, i saw this game already last year about in the summer - was it resubmitted? I Am not sure if it was Newgrounds or somewhere else...


Rated 1 / 5 stars


So you made an annoyingly enourmous version of a classic game with the only innovation being it takes a good minute and a half to get a block down. Hell, I started typing this when a block was at the top, and it hasn't made it down yet.


Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

Tetris, Tetris, Tetris.

A game created for the person who wants a cheap game that can go wherever you go, and can pass an other whys utterly boring time frain, such as a flight. Kinda cool when people do remakes with huge perks, like super powerups, explosions, and that one Super mario game on this site that uses tetris to get through obstacles.

What you made, sir, is a complete pos, that it's sole purpose is just to become a file that takes up space for a game that is extremely boring, very time intensive, and Complete waste of time. All it is is a super maxed out space version of tetris....that's it. Take a game where the purpose of the game is to try to tame a crowded box full of smaller boxes, and make it the size of Texas with boxes the size of a pebble, and try to fill a room with at a grandma's pace.....even with rocketboosters strapped onto her back.

Can't completely disagree that's it's HD, because High Definition could be used for dementions as well as pixelation, but pixelation was probably and most likely not the reason.
1 star for making this piece of shit, and the fast spinning of some pieces brought a slight chuckle.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


If you're bored, I guess this is OK.

It really doesn't introduce anything new except a huge board, which isn't really good. Sure, it's huge and surprising and a little overwhelming, but after playing for five seconds you think, "Well, that wasn't as good of an idea as I though."

Personally I think it's funner to just hold space bar, let the shapes drop and just look at the shapes and colors they make...


Rated 4 / 5 stars

You're missing the point.

Just sit back, make a sandwich, check your emails, and then check for opportunities to make lines. Stress free tetris

For you people who want an immediate reaction, go somewhere else, because this game's not supposed to be fast. Stop being so negative.

God damn, our whole freaking society is so fast-paced(and so stresses) when we're faced with something that's supposed to relax you, we whine and complain about it "being to slow".

World record?

Nice idea. Im just holding space and letting the blocks fall, and Im trying to see what happens. This could be considered a world record, yeah?

Nice concept, but people dont have enough respect for stuff like it. An INCREDIBLE timewaster, only for those who have many, MANY hours to waste.

Good job. 4/5


Rated 4 / 5 stars

noooo... not spacebar...

There isn't much to say, just that
1 - I respect the epic
2 - I don't have that much time to lose
3 - Srsly, tetris should be played with one hand, up is enough for turning, make down for speeding the fall. If you really want spacebar, make it for instant drop.

My eyes are killing me, if i make the screen bigger than it cuts off pieces of the game, fix this... o wait, this isn't yours.


Rated 0 / 5 stars

tetris is good

but this isnt, now to the game is so tiny and so wide even if you have the time to lay out all those blocks side by side theres no way you have the patience to not use quick drop and end up missing a single square and then you have to start all over trying to lay the second layer and this could be avoided by adding a grid so add a grid so i can line stuff up properly and quick drop it from the top and not spend an hour trying to get a single line. 0/10 for not giving credit to the creator whose name is %u0425%u0423%u0418%u0422%u0410 and the game was originally called tetoris not hd tetris.

Solid, unaldulterated poo.

Not only is this a rubbish game (seriously, who has enough time on their hands to play this?!)but it is copied straight off a game called Tetroids. Go look it up! I HATE it.
It would be better if instead of just ripping off tetroids, to tweak it - maybe give it real physics or somethig. Anything instead of trying to pass off tetroids as your own.

I'm going to ignore the accusations that this game was stolen and judge it by its very concept: a giant Tetris game.

Why? Who wanted a time waster like this? Was regular Tetris not good enough? Were you just bored? Are you compensating for something? This is just too big and too slow to be any fun.

I found this game amusing, and fairly fun, although it is a little OTT. It should perhaps have 2 modes, tiny mode (as it is now) and 'practical' mode, where the pieces are a little bigger so it is possible to come anywhere near losing.


Rated 0.5 / 5 stars


I'm so confused can you ruin a great game and be a douchbag at the same time ?

timewaster indeed.

seriously 10 minutes wasted laying pieces just to see if ill clear a line but didnt made it cause i was bored like hell. 2 points for the WTF and laughing moments but thats about it. And put the Tetris music at least for the people to feel a little nostalgic before they turn it off :)


Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

Would be good

except nothing happens at all. Seriously how slow do the pieces want to fall, I've actually managed to open itunes, choose a song and write this review before the first piece reached the bottom. This game definitely needs a speed button so that, at least during the beginning stages, it can be played effectively


Rated 3 / 5 stars

space bar

i've had it sit for 37 straight hours now and the screen is only about half full. And that's including quite a few speed ups.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Going for a tetris!

Some tips before you write a bad review. you can change the controls by clicking the little box that says "Key" at the top right, and drop the pieces much faster by pressing down, or even faster by pressing down.
i can't find any evidence that this game is stolen. I doubt it would be featured on the front page if it was stolen.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


if you want it to go fast try pressing ENTER for once before writing a bad review


Rated 1 / 5 stars

I'm sorry...

Even with the obvious method of speeding up, I can't see the point with this. It is a semi-interesting concept, sure. But it would make a game last for HOURS, which, in my opinion, knocks down the score by quite a large number. Once I got 10 pieces down on the bottom, I realized just how long it would take me just to fill up the bottom row alone.

Um.... no

Who in his right mind would want to play this? Under ANY conditions. I was at first going to see what happens when you complete a single whole row but even that was such a pain, I stopped when I was about 10% there. It gets 4 stars out of me just because it earns that much as a joke. But it's not a very good joke.

When you finish a row, a beam of light destroys the bricks from left, to right. Totally worth it. Took me about twenty five minutes. But this is very boring and at the same time, very addicting.

Epic... in size!

I thought at first it was going to be a huge screen with macro size pieces, it was totally the opposite, I laughed so hard at the thought of this and am sad that no one else can see the humor in it. I'll admit, it is kinda boring, but not in a bad way, it's just so big (that's what she said). The only thing I could suggest is some music is much much needed.

Maybe on a followup, you can add some things, different play options, like maybe a random button to drop dozens of bricks all over the screen, just to fill the space, but music is a must. I might add that people would prefer original Tetris style music, but that's up to you since it's probably copyrighted anyway

good idea...

this game sucks... its way to big and the pieces are too small. If the peices moved at a fast pace it would be a lot better.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

not that great, needs improvement

Whether you actually made this or not, it isnt very good. i like that its way bigger than the original tetris game, but it has problems. Its TOO big. who has the time to even make one lvl all the way across? And, in it's current state, it would take a long time to actually lose. I think it's a good idea, but there's no way it would be fun to play if it's any bigger than 4x the original size. Also, the blocks are too small. its hard to see where they are going to land. I personally think a grid in the background would help fix that problem. Overall, it needs work. If, of course, you actually made it.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


I take it this is meant as a joke - and I'll give it 5 for being funny.

great idea

but it realy is way too oversized...
it took me nearly one hour to get at least one line cleared (after 30 secs i found out to speed up by pressing space)
ans yes i realy tryed it but this is way too big ...
anyways the idea is great
4/5 and 7/10

I hate you personally.

I got sucked into this game for 2 hours, 14 minutes, and 13 seconds just to clear two measly lines... and make awesome skyscrapers...

You ripped this idea from another person.

This seems like an EXACT duplicate of a flash work I played a year or so ago. The only difference is that you decided to make the dimensions longer.

If other people could help verify my claim, I'm sure the NG community would greatly appreciate it. The only thing I hate more than people incapable of being creative is people stealing the credit of another's work.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

It's okay...

It's an okay game, though I was much more amused in watching the blocks fall than trying to get them to all fit together and create little lines. The playing field really is too big; I could barely see the blocks without having to strain my eyes. I played for about five minutes before it really got to be too much.
Maybe what you could do is have it zoom in on the individual blocks as they're falling. It might keep a nice little suspense element to the game, and keep people more interested. Or maybe you could just make it a little bit smaller. Bigger doesn't always mean better. Sometimes it can be painfully worse.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Wow O.O

Tetris of epic proportions.....I love it....I don't see why you are getting so much hate about this. No one seems to like the "go big or go home" motto anymore. I do wish it was a little bit faster drop wise (without me holding down)....I would like an instant drop but only if you have a ghost at the bottom showing where it would fall....otherwise ....crap...Anyway, keep up the good, supersized work........lmao you should do this for other games....Battleship, hah....

High Defenition

I have to give this a ten just for making me laugh and being unique. Even though it is a huge pain this is definitely creative and for all the people bashing on this game just because you don 't think its fun get a sense of humor. If there was a hard-drop key (if there is I didn't find it) I would probably give this game a 9 or even a 10.
