Maybe Columns(like tetris, but you match colors instead of shapes)? Besides that, I don''t think there is anything you can do well with WinAPI

Nooooooo,

I always recommend using SDL (www.libsdl.org).

It's a multimedia library that allows quick and easy window creation, graphics and input etc in 2D. It also provides 3D using OpenGL, so when you do step into the third dimension it serves as a helping hand.

Oh! Here''s an idea. How about a Tetris where the field is very tall. Now, the blocks come out of the side, and go randomly either up or down. And, you could also add (if wanted) little dots in the field that switch the direction of the gravity. Just a crazy idea, but it seems kinda cool. Plus it would make for some pretty cool ''Upward Cascades''. :D
