wtf change roatation should be a or s but up my up is broken

To be honest you put the game together well. However, I cannot give you any credit for creativity because this is tetris. It's been done a million times. Others have mentioned that your health system wasn't that great. I feel like you should deliver more damage for making multiple lines at a time. This game got boring fast and there is no way I would finish the whole thing.

thank u for your comment..

vs. Tetris is fine and all, but there's just nothing here outside of playing a relatively slow game of Tetris. You filling lines doesn't negatively affect your opponent aside from the tug of war at the top, and it doesn't seem like there's much of an incentive to build up and fill in 4 lines like in normal tetris or most versus Tetris. The upgrades are expensive and sparse and, to be honest, I don't know how many people are going to be interested in the game long enough to actually make use of them.

There's something you can work with here, but in it's current form, it's too slow and there's not enough to the versus elements.

Exactly what Vhorlen said. The game is more about endurance than skill; it should have a straight health bar rather than a push n' pull thingy.

Aside from the one-color tetris blocks, the graphics were good. Not too showy. Whistling and cheering got a little annoying. And I'm used to hitting the up button to instantly place a block down. I find it a lot easier to use one hand for the rotation and another for the placing. Then again, I'm not sure if the upgrades use the mouse or not. It's a good game... but not much more than that, for me.
