Canitrex - Falling Block Puzzler

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to post this, so here is where I decided. Mods can move if they please, it's their forum. XD Anyway, a long time and away ago back in the land of 2005 when I started programming games I played the tutorial of Triple Buffer - Tetris in an hour. Hooray! It was fun to go through and copy the tutorial. I did not learn what it all meant until later, but still fun. Now that I have mastered Win32 GDI last year I went through and finished my Tetris Clone based on the tutorial as a gift for my wife this past Christmas. She is a Tetris addict. Now, after some time of focusing and working every now and again after not for a while on the Canitrex it is done to my satisfaction. I am notorious for getting bored with projects and not finishing them so I made myself finish this one. ^_^ Anyway, here are some stats on the game. There are two game modes: ORIG - Which is classic clear 10 rows go up a level Tetris. BLOK - Every 9999 Points you go up a level and with each new level garbage blocks litter the playfield that you must muck through. Some other features are - Pause - Pause the Game with the Pause Break Key Scoring - Scoring based on how many times you hit the down key, for a piece and how high up the row is that you're clearing. Plus fun Tetris Action. Screenshots - Download Canitrex Hope you enjoy it!

Good job completing a game! I am working on a larger project and got a little unmotivated since I'm at a point that requires a lot of work without much interactive result, so I decided to make a sort of breakout/pong hybrid to actually feel like I finished something. And completely unrelated - I also happen to be moving to Pittsburgh this week. Anyway I really hope your wife enjoys it! Good job learning the fundamentals needed to produce this yourself as well.

Cheers

Hey Thanks Josh, Sorry for posting in the wrong spot.

Hey thanks for the feedback Scott, yeah. Most of the time I just mess around doing different demos or something dumb to kill time when I'm bored. XD I think this is only the 4th Game I've actually finished to completion. lol.

Awesome Pittsburgh and the outlying areas are a fun place be sure to hit Dave and Busters at the Water Front as well as the good Sushi place which name escapes me.
