Description:This is Tetris2, a very nice Tetris game for all HP graphing calculators (38G, 39G, 40G, 48, 49G). Some features: small size (<6.5kb though a very good size/performance ratio), very close to the original TETRIS gameplay, configuration of the gameplay + three game modes, 2-Player games via serial I/O (IR or wire), runs well on Emu48 (sp 8+).

This is a great game. It has good customizability and is fun to play with 2 players. I'd like the scores at the beginning to be nonexistant, and for the scores to work no matter what directory you are in.

In addition to the pieces being absolutely tiny, this game pauses for about half a second after you drop each piece - I suppose it's checking if there are any lines. There are some very fast ways to check that, but this program quite apparently isn't using them. On higher levels, this detracts from the pace of the game.

Rob, you can actually move a piece for some time after it hit the floor -- this time depends on the level you're playing and is part of the lag you're experiencing. Another part is the garbage collection that takes place just before a piece starts dropping and can be minimized by storing the game in port 0 (as recomended in the doc for the 49G).

My favourite game for the 49G! (NB: What are the changes in the latest version?)

Albert, 2.7 is mainly a maintenance release of 2.6 w/ added 39G/40G binaries and an updated documentation.
