Intro:
Tetris is one of the "classic" games and can actually be fun even when programmed in DOS Turing. At first I had my doubts, but it actually turned out great. This game doesn't require object oriented programming and being programmed in DOS, the .exe file actually came out smaller in size. (It still working on WinXP)

Review:
Game itself is great. Lots of features:
Top 5 Highscore
Rotation AND inverse rotation
keeps track of score, levels, individual peaces that appeared, how many types of lines assembled (single, double, triple, tetris)
Sound
Ability to mute sound
User level increase
Dropping blocks down faster
Pause Very Happy

I'm impressed. If this game is to be edited, I'd like to change the grid color to grey instead of white for lower contrast (grid is too bright). Also it would be cool is something special happens when you score a tetris(4 lines at same time). Doesn't happen much, but it will make a heck of a differense.

The only bug I find is that the game quits after you lose. BTW, there's a feature to stop at any time without fancy Alt+F4 junk.

Tony's Final Words:
Its great, done much better then many clones I saw before. Its one of the best games I've seen so far and defenatly the best one programmed in DOS Turing.

You should defenatly take a look

Note: While FTP seems to be down, you can download the game from the file attached. You need a WinZip to open the files.

All right, I looked over your suggestions and added a few improvements. It now allows you to modify most colours that the game uses... or if you prefer, use random colours! Smile You can edit them it the "tcolour.txt", by changing the numbers at the beginning of the file. There's a colour code included in the file too. The very first number controls the randomizing.

It also has a "Play again?" option so you don't have to exit the game to start over again.

That's all for now... In the future I may add something special when you get a Tetris (besides just playing a note), maybe flash the background or something?

Hope you like it!
