Not Tetris = Classic Tetris + Real Physics

Not Tetris (Images courtesy 'Maurice')
By Andrew Liszewski

I don’t think anyone can ever get tired of playing Tetris. The game definies ‘replay value.’ But if you feel you’ve already mastered those falling blocks and are looking for more of a challenge, then give this version of the game a shot. Not Tetris looks and plays just like the original game, except that real-world physics and gravity come into play. And it doesn’t clear lines either, the goal of this version is to basically stack as many pieces as you can without them reaching the top of the screen. Doesn’t seem like a challenge? Perhaps this video will convince you it’s not so easy.

You can download Not Tetris from the Facepunch forums where it was posted and created by user Maurice, and as far as I can tell it’s PC only at this point. Also, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I still think Tetris has one of the greatest, most catchy soundtracks of any game, ever.

    I can honestly say I never liked Tetris perhaps because I could never win

    Actually, since it's made in LÖVE, it's cross-platform (Windows, Mac and Linux).

    I wonder if this real-physics version can even be won, unless someone has Jedi-like precision? In this video, I don't think they cleared one line…

    You cannot clear lines in this version of it.
