(About the author)
     This code will generate a 1-player Tetris game. The game is 90% complete and won't crash. Heavily commented. Well organised code which will offer an easy introduction into the world of DX7 and it's DirectDraw functionality. The code is heavily commented since this project was supposed to turn out as a tutorial (with a nice Word file to go along with it).

A very well done Tetris clone!  I have 
no complaints about the program itself. 
 As for the game, a few points of

controls. (Rotate cw AND ccw, Change 
over to WASD instead of up down left 
right, etc.)

went the same speed the whole time 
until I got to level 7, where the speed 
increased dramatically, and I lost very 
quickly.  Unless you meant that to 
A few minor rotation 
oddities that I don't quite understand 
(Try Bricklayer some time.) that are 
based upon a different point of 
rotation than I am used to.
In other 
Tetris games I've played, blocks stay 
the same color.  Meaning if I get a 
long skinny block, it's always 
And, of course, get the Next 
Block window working.
These are just 
suggestions that /I/ think would 
increase the quality of the game.  Not 
necessarily the program, because the 
program itself, as I have already said, 
is already very high-quality.
