Go Nuts contest entry: STARBLOCK_DE_PON

STARBLOCK_DE_PON
Author: MrmediamanX of 3mx digital.
A simple columns style game with a cutesy chibi art style.
Not really a whole lot to it due to how busy things are for me right now.
Hopefully I get more time to tweak things a little more possible add more modes
I just don't want to fall into feature creep and not have enough time to polish and finish it.

CONTROLS:
LEFT/RIGHT - move blocks
DOWN - Hard drop
UP - use meter
A/Z - toggle block

I've decided to upload it now as i'll be busy in the up and coming months.

Good stuff. It's very pink/bright for me but it's consistent so I'll let you off :)

As you're doing a kind of Tetris thing, I'd recommend adding in some kind of gameplay twist or addition. Not sure what to suggest but Tetris has been done to death, which might put people off a bit. Remember Triss that Morpheus submitted in competition 5? Also Tetris but he had power ups and you made your own shape blocks by shifting squares in a design pad using mouse or keyboard. Very clever game idea that was and it worked really well.

That won't work for your game but doing something to shake up the basic gameplay will make the game even more appealing.

Oh, and don't forget I should be in there somewhere <glares> :-)

@Xerra

Thanks man, there are some interesting idea with TRISS, I do have a power meter which fills by doing the whole columns style match 3 block breaking which when used will clear a few rows just to keep the push forward/keep down moment to moment game play going as its possible to get a bad stack considering there a more combinations of blocks.

It definitely needs something else in terms of power ups or power downs. oddly even for me the game is kind of hard
and i'm a pro at columns. suggestions i'm all for. If I have time I may add a quest mode just so there's more of an incentive
then just getting a high score.

For sure boss your in there and damn you look cute. ;)
