Feedback Request: Cutetris

I’m glad to announce my new game – Cutetris.

Cutetris is a tetris-like game with cute animals. During game creation a lot of time has been spent on making convenient control by mouse. Therefore, please try to play using mouse. Left click will drop figure, right click – rotate it clockwise. You can use mouse wheel to rotate figure. Holding shift and left mouse button will accelerate figure’s falling.

There is 7 bonuses:
1. Red Bonus – rescue all pets
2. Orange Bonus – rescue one line
3. Yellow Bonus – rescue two lines
4. Green Bonus – rescue figure columns
5. Light Blue Bonus – rescue figure rows
6. Dark Blue Bonus – rescue identical cages
7. Magenta Bonus – rescue identical pets

The faster you play, the more scores you receive. At the right of the game field you can see combo-meter. When it reaches the limit, your score multiplier increases and you receive more score for each rescued pet. After level number you can see “#” and then necessary amount of pets, which you must rescue to proceed to next level.

New pets are added gradually. Levels where you’ll meet new pets are 2,4,6,8 and 10.

Help.html file, which must be loaded when you click on Help in main menu, is not presented at this time. I’ll add it a bit later. If you have any questions about Cutetris, please ask me here or through email.

I _love_ the graphics. /me is a nintendo slut.

The graphics are pretty sweet. I used the mouse for a while but reverted back to the keyboard. It was too easy to make a mistake with the mouse. The game ran perfectly fine - silky smooth.

On a side note: I think (Im not entirely sure though) that you may be in violation of some copyright with this game - IIRC the owner of tetris won a lawsuit that said that people cannot make a game of falling bricks with the letters “tris” in it - just thought I’d mention that so someone can validate this.

Really cool graphics! I love the idea of working with falling block games. I am making a quick mod for Stalker when that comes out. It’s called S.T.A.C.K.E.R.

/me commites suicide.
