Play Go Tetris! Now
Below is the previous version of Go Tetris! (0.9a), created by Martin Grider. Thanks for playing!
There is a new version of Go Tetris! available!
This version is still available for comparison, but the new one is WAY better! :)
Controls and Instructions:
Rotate Pieces clockwise: Up Arrow or “i”
Rotate Pieces counter-clockwise: “u”
Move Pieces Left: “Left Arrow” or “j”
Move Pieces Right: “Right Arrow” or “l”
Pause game: “P” or “SPACEBAR”
Move Pieces Down (faster): “Down Arrow” or “k”
Gameplay is a lot like Tetris, but instead of lines, the pieces break like Go captures. In Go, a stone is captured by surrounding it by stones of the opposing color (or by the edge of the gameboard). More than one stone may be surrounded in this way, and the more stones you capture at once, the more points you receive.
Living groups of stones are also removed from the gameboard. For the purpose of Go Tetris!, a group of stones is defined as “living” if it has two “eyes”, or single stone holes, in the same group of stones. See the “tutorials” category of posts for more about how to capture living groups of stones.
You also get more points at higher levels.
