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.

The idea is awesome.

Like people said below, it needs just a little more care.
The guy below explained the problem of random pieces, I add also the bad difficult curve. The game starts too easy and jump for too hard without giving me the chance to develop playing skills and get used to the game.

Even so I'm recomending this game to my friends.
Hope you release later a better done version, cause the idea itself is kick ass.

Needs Polish to be Perfect

I never thought Tetris would be reinvented. I thought it will remain as is since, let's face it, why fix what it ain't broken. But this is re-inventing the wheel (heck, just fired cliches after cliches), and it's actually quite interesting and fun. It gets frustrating as you progress. This game will benefit from polish especially with the soundtrack. Make it more modern, remix it or something.

And add a little on what is happening in the later levels because it's hard figuring out what we don't know.

15 minutes and walkthrough on lvl 7

great game, good concept. only problem is i think those disappearing blocks of level 7 and a few higher levels kill the game. I'm not one to say something is too hard to learn, but its an unnecessary addition that adds nothing of value to the game play. I liked everything else about this game though. overall good job.
