Falling Up is a cross-platform twist on the traditional "falling tetronimos" game "Tetris".

Product Description:

A twist on the traditional "falling tetronimos" game. It starts out simple, but every level gives you a different perspective. The board will flip, spin, and dance.

The game supports a "soft" drop (if drop is followed by either left or right, then the piece will attempt to slide left or right as soon as it hits bottom).

Falling Up will have you giggling with evil glee. I wrote it as a precursor to other games, a way to learn new technologies (GLUT, OpenGL, OpenAL, NSIS, ...), and to brush up on old ones (c, for that matter).

The (OSX/windows/linux) source code is essentially free to do with as you please, if you like. If you "steal" most of it, I'd prefer you give credit back to here, but really... whatever. I learned from lots of places and anything I can do to pay that back is cool.

The game is now also available for the iPhone through the App Store! Support? fallingup - at - erif dot org.

Falling Up
Yes, it's another tetris clone. No, I'm not trying to make any money off of it or claim it as particularly unique. It is fun. Try it. It's evil. I'm told that frequently. People have even praised it. I wrote it as a precursor to other games, a way to learn new technologies (GLUT, OpenGL, OpenAL, NSIS, ...), and to brush up on old ones (c, for that matter).

I learned from lots of places and anything I can do to pay that back is cool. The game is... tetris. You have the same old blocks, and they fall down. You use left and right to move blocks left and right, up to rotate, down to move down a line, and spacebar to drop. There's a 'next' item (optional), sound (optional), and... stuff like that. Please, just download it and play it already! Geeze! You'd think I was just rambling...
