Hey all, I’ve just finished version 2 of the first game I’ve ever made. It’s inspired by the popular Tetris, but with some small twists. The new version has much better graphics, an improved gui system, a settings menu, nice transitions, multiple level sizes, and more… Oh, and it’s 100% free.
I built this in Java using Slick 2D (http://slick.cokeandcode.com/), and working with this library had been a breeze so far. I’ve built my own gui library, error handling, and other support code which I hope to reuse.
Feel free to play! I’d appreciate any feedback, especially on problems / exceptions you may encounter, even though I’ve tested this reasonably well. I’ve made a standalone installer for Windows (no Java required), which should making installing and getting started a breeze.
- Inspired by the legendary game of Tetris
- Complete a line of blocks of a single color and get triple points!
- Five different modes available: from baby (extremely easy with huge blocks) to Rain of Blocks (very difficult, with tiny blocks)
- High scores for each mode
- Available for Windows
You can download the game from the Square2 download page.
Please let me know if you encounter any problems! In case of problems, there should be an file named error.log in the game directory where you can find more details. My next project will be a bit more challenging and a bit more original, and will involve conquering the galaxy and pew pew lasers ;D
