This simple puzzle game at some point fit into 8 KiB, hence the name. Since then, the focus has shifted to porting and support for various audio synths.

There are ports of this game to DOS, PSP, 3DS, GBA, PSX, Android, NDS, Win32, N800, N900, N9, PocketCHIP, iOS, macOS, Vita and WebGL. You can find these on the game's itch.io page.

How to play: There are 2x2-blocks falling down the top, with two different colors. Use LEFT/RIGHT/DOWN to move the block and use UP to rotate it. Use SPACE to drop the block (it will fall fast until it lands).

Browser notice: Please use Firefox. Keyboard input might not work in Safari (and might not work in Chrome, it did work for me, though), but you can use mouse input (drag/click). Audio is currently broken in the WebGL port.

The controls are sorta janky, there's no music and the keyboard controls don't work in the Newgrounds version. But it's still lumines and it's a really good formula, so I think you can make it work.

To improve the controls besides fixing keyboard compatibility in Newgrounds I would add in a second rotate button for rotating counterclockwise. Playing the itch.io version I think the rotate buttons should've been z and x over up.

While it is impressive how many things you ported this game into, I wish it controlled better.

I am on Chrome and keyboard input doesn't work. And yes, I did see that I could 'drag and click', but no thanks I will pass on it until keyboard works properly.. Additionally none of the sound options produced.. you know sound. For giggles tried the itch page.. same issues, no intentions of bothering with the download.

this was super fun, I don't know why, but I can't hear the music, I tried different browsers but it still does not work, really cool game anyways!

Pretty fun :)
