Tetris Fight Club (2011 game roundup)

Writing about web page http://www.draknek.org/games/tetris-fight-club/

Created for: MiniLD #24 and TIGSource Versus Competition
Development time: 2 weeks
Theme: Tetris is now a game!
Status: Done
Play online

The name says it all really.

This was initially started for MiniLD #24, which had the best set of themes ever. I then finished it off for the TIGSource Versus Competition, where it placed joint 10th (out of 81 entries).

Paul Forey made some excellent music for it at very short notice, combining the Tetris and Mortal Kombat themes in a catchy way.

During the voting period the game got shoutouts on ByteJacker and Rock Paper Shotgun (who described it as “peculiarly conflicted”, whatever that means).

Later in the year, I spent a weekend in London making it work on The Beast (London’s indie arcade machine), where it works really nicely.

I should really clean up and release the full-screen version, I think it works a lot better with a wider arena. Poke me if you want that to happen.
