Excellent tetris clone. Try it!

It was written in GFA?! Bloody hell!.. It is indeed a top game and I spent many hours playing the bastard!.. IMO one of the best 'falling blocks' games I've played, I may also be biased because I had an STE... I loved the 'Ahah!' and cursed the 'Did you have a brain tumour for breakfast?'... Er, nice blocks, dan! :-)

Ah, Blat! Brings back many happy memories... If I remember, it was written in GFA Basic; I did some of the graphics for the blocks, as well as some of the "amusing" comments at the beginning. (I am the 'Dan' in the base hi-score table :oD). The acid melt effect, if I remember correctly, was taken from the movie "Bad Taste", although I could be mistaken - we went through a LOT to get the various effects. I remember the lightning effect came from Terminator, though :o). I was always a bit annoyed that Chris put Gareth above me in the high-score table, but then I suppose he did provide the ace "A-ha!" sample, so I'll let him off :oP. An ace game. Well worth the download. Even if I am biased a bit. BTW - If you're still out there, Chris, get in touch!

Very hard? Not when you get the hang of it. My record is Level 10. You just need to use the bonus blocks - like the 3 clocks in a row which slow things down a lot, and use smart bombs (which you get for getting 5 blocks in a row). Or - playing it with Steem you can slow down the emulation speed, which makes things easier. Anyway, it's probably my favourite ST game of all time. Sound and graphics are amazing.

The most challenging of the tetris derivatives, it is very hard to get to just level 3 or 4, even when you get really good at it! I even got my (ex) girfriend hooked on this, and she made it to level 5 before I did. There are new graphics on each level, and there are dynamite sticks that blow up blocks of...erm blocks, and later there are weird melting potion flask things that "melt" through your stack of blocks (with a groovy sampled sound effect to match) helping you to survive a little longer. The sound effects are mind blowing. I seem to remember it was STe only, and Falcon. Play it.
