This is a fully playable version of Tetris in fewer characters than a moderate-length email, including:
- Line removal
- Level progression (speed increases after every 10 lines cleared)
- 'Lines cleared' display
- Soft drop button (with slight delay when next piece appears)
- Reset button
Fitting everything in this small a space was really tough, but I made it. I had to cut a few corners, for instance there's no next piece preview, only one rotation direction, and there wasn't space for logic to allow movement of blocks once they land, so overhangs are a nuisance. With all that said, though, I worked hard trying to make this an actually decent version of tetris and not just a technical curiousity, so hopefully somebody actually enjoys playing it instead of just staring at the indecipherable souce code. Shoutout to 2dArray, whose Tweetjam Tetris and its genius piece indexing system I built on for this project.
My criticism is more towards the speed of the soft drop and the lack of a proper restart button when you reach a game over tbh. The lack of sound isn't too much of a hindrance, but overall great tweetcart. Maybe you could make it a full game sometime.
