  • Highscores
  • Its own key repeat system (allows for holding down two keys at once, among other things)

  • Will not cause a raccoon infestation in your home or work place

Graphics: backgrounds are nice. Pieces are not very attractive. Neither are modifiable.

Action: uncomfortable delay between pieces. No undo. Left-right-rotate motion is very responsive.

Window is small by today's standards.

No network play.

Quinn sets the standard for games of this kind.

This is the most beautiful version of Tetris I've ever seen.
No irritating melodies, no robotic feel to the graphics. (If you want that, try Quinn.)

Pure _recreation_ for the mind.

Simple, yet very enjoyable. I did not have any problems on my PowerMac G5.

Thank you!
