2pi Tetris

Have you ever wondered what 360° tetris would be like? Well now you don't have to! Try your luck in this minimalistic game with easy controls and amazing features such as: rotating blocks that are here to ruin everything you're trying to achieve!

Left & right for block movement, up for placing a block and down for rotating it. In two players mode, controls for the second player are: A & D for movement, S for placement and W for rotating blocks.

A fun take on the classic Tetris, that could use a little work to be excellent.

Neat game that kept me entertained for a while. A few suggestions:

1. The game desperately needs a difficulty curve. I got up to 2000+ points and 500+ seconds and without the game progressing (e.g. less time added per dropped piece?), I could just go on forever.

2. Also, since how the piece fragments shift after the board rotates is an important part of the game, I think they should be distinguished. Right now they are all white squares, some are connected and some are not. I got a hang of remembering what's attached to what but it'd still be nice to be able to see.

3. The score simply equaling the number of rows cleared times 11 is pretty boring. Bonus points for multiple-row clears? Row clears by consecutive dropped blocks?

4. Game can be more snappy. Once I hit the up button, you can just make the piece snap onto the board immediately. Then the next piece immediately appears. Would be so much more fun if the game was like 4 times more fast-paced.

5. Some token background music would be nice (with the option to mute it).

Overall, very good idea that can be much improved. I hope to see the finished product of this some day :)

A very neat concept but its still 2d flat and its very hard to play at times

This was a delightful new take on an age-old evergreen. The simple design helps you focus on the task at hand: thinking ahead in four directions. The game being rather self-explanatory, I would have liked to see other game modes, i.e. increasing fall speed, or increased turn speed.
Nonetheless, I thoroughly like this for all its simplicity!
