This is like S&M for gamers.
I honestly think someone could be driven mad by playing this version.
I must agree: it did suck every smidgen of joy out of the cursed, time-sucking thing.
I actually had a slight amount of obsessive-compulsive fun trying to build a giant tree so I could get to the top and end the game (there was no special message unfortunately).
This is wrong. WRONG!!!
And once you have been driven mad by that, try the The Petaminx
definately not enough hours in the day for this
it took 2 hours and 28 minutes of just letting them fall before it got to the top, and that was with holding down space. (they continued to fall fast when you switched tabs while holding down space, i didn’t sit there holding space for 2 hours, just so you know!)
Looks like Brandon beat you to it: http://www.offworld.com/2009/03/tiny-tetris-in-a-whole-wide-we.html
I do, however, find it pretty funny that you guys tend to cross-post stuff between the sub-blogs quite often.

My god, it’s the Rubik’s Cube from Hell!!

Still looks like more fun than Desert Bus.
Somebody on offworld posted this link of his 39 minute tetris:
Thank you for this!!! I can’t stop playing.
At the 1 hr mark it gives you a super long strait piece. I did not have the fortitude to see if it was given each hour.
I got one line: 20 minutes.
Make this 8+ player and suddenly it could actually be fun.
Just saying, seeing as I read all them anyways it would be nice if they just made a mode to read them all in one blog.
Here’s an interesting challenge: how quickly can you fail? I tried stacking them up the middle but still it took over 15 mins.
I have to say I more enjoyed playing the polar opposite of this: Burning Man’s four story tall Tetris game which you play on one huge cock-piece.
One of my proudest moments was getting the high score for the evening while people heckled me from below. I guess I could have kept my mouth shut while I wasn’t playing, but it still baffles me that some people still don’t know about the hard drop.
I failed in 5:45… lol… greatest use of my time. EVER!
quick someone make this massively multiplayer.
Many years ago I created a Pac-Man style game in which the levels became progressively larger and the characters smaller. It is still on the web at:
If you press enter instead of space, the blocks fall quicker.
I only got 20 points for clearing a line….. i was expecting at least a million……
22 minutes for one level and I almost went insane and felt the carpal tunnel starting…
