Double Block

Double Block is a clone of the classic Russian game, Tetris.

You have various shaped blocks falling down which you can rotate and move left or right to fill the playing grid. Each full line that you manage to fill with blocks then disappears. This ends up being a race against time, as the blocks fall more quickly and once the blocks reach the top of the grid your game is over.

This is a good implementation, with a two player mode, and also a more difficult mode with even more oddly shaped blocks! The game was programmed using Metacomco "C" and the title screen was made using Concept 3D.
