    Try my Tetris game - last version

    Hey all, a few weeks ago I posted the beginning of a tetris game written in with the Win32 API. Well, here is my latest, and probably last version. Tell me what y'all think!

    For those of you who won't read the directions in the help menu, the arrow keys move the piece, control is clockwise, shift is counterclockwise, up key is clockwise or counterclockwise depending on what you set it as, and the space drops the piece to the bottom.

    A couple of things you needn't bother complaining about because I already know :

    1. I know it probably needs a background picture, but I suck at drawing so I doubt that will ever happen.

    2. The game options would probably be better as a dialog box then all within the menu, but when I was writing this game I was just learning about menus so did everything that way, and to be honest I don't feel like changing it.

    3. I know that the high scores file is just a simple text file that can be easily manipulated to give you like a billion points. If I have time I'll bother encrypting it but I'm not sure if I'll get around to it.

    So tell me what you think, I welcome all feedback/criticisms! Keep in mind that I've only done Win32 for about two months though! Unfortunately the version you'll download doesn't have the music since that would put the file over the file size limit. If you want the version that has the soundtrack, PM me with your email and I'll send it to you.

    I would say that you did a good job. The interface if similar to that of an old windows 3.1 version tetris, that my parents and I used to play often. About the only thing that I would say that you are missing is two player support. You could probably could make the change is speed a little more even (there is hardly any change in speed between the first 8 levels, but the differance between 8 and 9 is phenomenal).

    I only played the game once and I got to level 9, I had completed 97 lines, and had a score of 3585.

    Looks good, but is there a shortcut for pausing it? Nice interface, although a little bland.
    Well, there are a few things wrong with your code:

    1) It does not work.
    2) It does not work.
    3) It does not work.

    Hope this helps.

    I made things more gradual because a couple of people who play it here on my comp aren't very good and requested that the game stays easy enough so that they can play longer

    So far my best is 124 lines and a score of 10345. I got that score starting at level nine and getting quite a few tetrises. And for those who want a REAL challenge, try level nine with appearing lines and squares, so far my best is only like 24 lines playing like that.
