Probably the Best Tetris clone for the 48/49 out there.

A few bugs, like the keyboard not reporting the correct keys in the keys setup in-game, but still playable. Just remember what YOU input, and ignore what the screen says.

Well, I commend this game for being faster at line-checking than other HP Tetris games. This one at least doesn't pause for half a second after every piece. However, it has its own fatal flaw.

This game focuses so much on the pretty interface that it forgets to be fun. The pieces never start falling faster! Imagine playing the original Tetris except it wouldn't let you advance past level 0.

There is still no decent Tetris clone for the HP49.
