Game

The goal of the game is to make completed lines while avoiding the blocks from reaching the top. Every time a completed line is made, it disappears and the blocks on top of it fall down. You must try to figure out the most effective way of arranging the pieces based on the next 10 pieces as displayed on the left to the play area (preview box). The next piece is the highest on the preview box.

There is no end to the game. The goal is to accumulate the highest score possible without letting the blocks drop at the top of the pile. You score highest the lower the blocks are dropped and lines are made, as well as how fast the block is at the time. You also get scoring bonuses according to how many lines you do at once. At every piece you drop, the next piece will be slightly faster the speed will build up and it's up to you to heighten your reflexes to match.

You control the cursor with either the mouse or the keyboard (see controls). Move left and right to choose where you want the block to go and rotate it to best match the target location. If you are sure of your target. You can drop the block immediately by dropping it. You can also make it fall faster by moving it down

When playing with the mouse, the block will always try to follow the cursor's horizontal position. And if you try to turn and the block cannot fit at the given the orientation, it will rotate again on the same direction until it can fit. You can use those to fit the blocks into tight spaces.
