I made this for my final 20% of my mark. What do you think of it?

Nice colors and desing. Close the window after ur done, and it wouldn't hurt to add a intro screen.

looks good, but you could improve your draw procedure...

I'd recomend taking out (or atleast reducing) the delay for the fall and make the piece fall by a few pixels instead of from cell to cell. You can picMerge the board on top to make it look like the piece is falling behind it.

also - it is much faster to Draw.FilleOval rether then drawfill the oval cell Confused If you want to further increase the speed of the program - I sujest saving generated pieces as pictures Pic.Save(), since it would be faster to draw a small image then generate "mapleleaf" each time Confused
