Electro

Pitch:
In this Tetris like, your goal is to make lines from left to right with tiles of the same shape, connected by side or by corner.

Controls:
- Move with left/right arrow
- Increase speed with down arrow
- Go back to previous shape with up arrow

Details:
- Transform a shape back to the previous one (up arrow) one time per shape. Not available for the cicle which is the first shape, and for "blocking" tiles.
- Blocking tiles (red ones) won't move down when you complete a line, but you can remove them doing a full line like other shapes!
- You will unlock new shapes as you will make more lines. Higher level shapes earn more points.

Coil subscribers:
- 10% extra points
- a "ghost" tile to preview where your tile will land

The gameplay is a remake of an old game I used to play on DOS in my childhood. In my memories it was named "Electro", but I never found it on abondonwares... so I decided to develop it. If anyone remember it, please let a comment with infos!

Feedback from the experts

Nathan Lie: Really innovative take on Tetris - I'm glad this was recreated or I might've never heard of this style of Tetris game. I would suggest doing a few things to make the game a little snappier, like adding a button to instantly drop the falling piece like in Tetris, as well as a fix to the Web Monetization bonus - I couldn't get it to work, probably because in a live environment there may be latency to the monetization stream starting.

Florian Rival: I like the idea, and the game is nice to play. I would have made the game area smaller to make the game faster and maybe increase difficulty? Game style is minimalist but pleasant to the eyes. Good job!

Jupiter Hadley: Challenging game!
