Quinn is an arcade-style tetromino puzzle game written and designed specifically for Mac OS X. It features a clean, elegant user interface, beautiful graphics, and smooth, subtle animations for fluid gameplay. Instead of reinventing the game with yet another variation of the rules, the goal of Quinn is to combine the simplicity of the original idea with the genuine Mac experience for perfect user enjoyment.

Check out the developer's site: http://www.simonhaertel.de/quinn

Well, I guess I'm not exactly shocked. ;-) Still, I apologize for the out-of-date download link. I'll disable the listing.

Tetris clones are a dime a dozen; if it's for free, the price is even less. But I've enjoyed Quinn for years, a distinctly Mac-like game interface improving a rock-solid game.

Fun, up to a point. I've been playing this game for a month and it's no replacement for some of the older, obsolete, or other online versions I've played on other systems, but this one has the best graphics and (sort of) response.

Randomness is a major issue, as seen in other comments and links to other forums below. There is a difference between true randomness and the illusion of randomness. Also, the randomness changes to a more "difficult" randomness as the game progresses into harder levels. I've yet to be able to pass level 7 because suddenly I'll have 5, 6, or 7 of the same S and Z pieces thrown at me, and I'm definitely not THAT good to figure out how to get them all pieced together. Also, once I reach level 6 (I fully understand, btw, low levels for someone playing Tetris as long as I have), the pieces just fall and I can't move them fast enough and eventually the game just ends. I can "dodge" a locked tetromino for a while on lower levels, but not so on these higher levels.

I'm not sure, but I think every Tetris I've played has a different "persona" and around levels 6 and 7, this game just becomes a nuisance and annoying. No matter how often I play, I cannot get past these levels without being handed the same tetromino over and over and over. It's very frustrating. This game is otherwise almost perfect. So close.

If you are looking for a good time waster look no further. With a beautiful interface, classic gameplay and an interesting online mode, Quinn is hard to beat. I haven't had the pleasure of playing online yet, but it looks like a lot of fun. For a free game, Quinn has all the basics down and more!

In case you're not referring to starting on level 11 or higher, you can choose New With Options in the Game menu.
