TETRIS is awesome, so I made this as a tribute to the beloved game.

Made in less than a month from scratch for OneGameAMonth.com.

Thank you very much for playing, reviewing, and voting the game up! Be sure to follow me if you want to play more games like this (I encourage this type of stalking!).
And thank you for the front page, Newgrounds and Tom!

By me: Zanzlanz (Zanzlanz.com)

Due to popular demand, slippery placement (sliding) was added, and left/right controls may be held down to move the piece automatically. Also, a scoreboard bug was fixed and so was a sound bug. Keep the reviews coming - I will listen and reply!

May be extremely challenging to new players. But with time, you'll be a pro. Don't get discouraged; you're amazing! See below for information on how to play :)

The concept is somewhat hard to explain until you actually begin playing. The goal of this game isn't to fill rows like in the original game, but to create squares of blocks (starting from 4x4 in size). The more blocks you manipulate, the more points you get! Don't forget to beat your friends and foes in the leaderboards and collect all of the precious medals (haha!).

There are three modes. Complete the first mode to unlock the second, and so on. Beating each mode results in a fun particle explosion and NEW STUFF!

Move the pieces to the side of the world to flip the world around, hence the name FLIPTRIS. Survive as long as you can!
The controls are shown during the game (kind of a bad placement, I agree, haha).

Press M to toggle mute.
See the credits menu if you want to download the music.

TIP: Use the Q and E (or Z and X) keys to jump the the left so you don't waste time moving the piece when flipping ;)

good game if I was blind game breaking bugs ruin the game

Zanzlanz responds:

Make sure to list the bugs or send a message to get them fixed. Otherwise, no one has reported a "game breaking bug". Also all crashes get automatically reported, and I don't see any recent crashes from you, so you'll have to clarify what you're talking about.

But, I think you just complimented the music though, so thanks!

Edit: Hey thanks for the DM! I can probably improve the Newgrounds timeout issue. I'm not sure how I could make the gap prevention any more clear at the moment though.

Edit 2: I made improvements to both! There are new sound effects for invalid moves, and the game attempts to keep you logged in every 5 minutes, so Newgrounds doesn't lose connection.

No joke: I have played this game for about an hour every day since it came out. It's been 7 years. I don't regret anything. This game helps me organize my own thoughts in a way no therapy could have done since. Thanks for this game. <3

Zanzlanz responds:


This is probably the nicest comment a game developer can receive. It makes me really happy to know you found this game and that it helped you in ways I could have never even predicted.

A couple years ago I got a message about how FLIPTRIS helped a guy mitigate PTSD, and that stuck with me quite a lot. Your review will have the same affect, and so I thank you for giving me that long lasting inspiration and motivation.

Also, hopefully you'll be happy to know I already faithfully recreated FLIPTRIS for HTML5 - so it will continue to be available here long after Flash is gone.

i still can't believe people prefer mine blocks over this.

Zanzlanz responds:

I was really proud of this one too, thanks! I only spent a month on it versus 9 years on Mine Blocks, but it definitely shouldn't dictate whether it can provide an enjoyable experience or not! :D

Fliptris more like flipetris XD

Zanzlanz responds:

Filipe-tris O__O

i'm crap at this game but i like the idea of it

Zanzlanz responds:

Hahaha, when you code a game you get used to it, then end up making it really hard xD
My bad xD
