Two Finger Play

iPhone game development, by a college student with a short attention span

Location: Atlanta, GA, United States

I don't wear shoes. If you see a barefoot kid walking around the Tech campus, say hi.


Tris 0.6 released!

Got the new version of Tris out, finally. You can download here; updated Installer package coming soon. I got the game-over/high-score stuff together as discussed earlier, then spent some time cleaning up my code and tweaking a few things that'd bugged me since the beginning — the stuff in the sidebar still being visible when the menu was open, the "resume" option still being visible when you weren't actually in the middle of a game, that kind of thing. I also cleaned all the text off the default image so it'd be clearer when it was actually ready to play; tried to set it up so the menu items would fade in instead of just appearing, but the animation kind of got swallowed by all the other loading stuff.

I've had a few people now ask me to add in-game sounds. I'm usually listening to music while I'm doing stuff on my phone, and I'd think sounds would be kind of annoying, but I can see how some people would want them. I'll futz around with GarageBand sometime and see what I can come up with.

thank you for the game. unfortunally after level 9 it is not playable for me, becourse then i cant twist the blocks.
I hit on the phone, but most of the time, they dont turn.

What a wonderfull game! It's amazing how the "old skool" apps still make their comeback in one way of another! I thing that with this app you show us that the iPhone is the future, playing Tetris with just your finger! Amazing! I'll have to get used to it :-) but I'm all ready addicted to this game and I have add a description to my iWebSite! Keep up the good work!

PS: my dad, who is 62, used to play a tetris game where the field was in 3D, you could also place the block in front of another! Maybe this is another idea for an app? :-) And btw: my dad really likes this game!
