I've gotten that before. Also, flying through tunnels/rooms like in Descent...

No worries, hope you had your go - also we'll have a hard time accepting new submissions for this update, but - please, if you ever get a good idea, the puzzle editor is there, waiting, longing even for more puzzles - if not for this update, then the next one!

<rant>Doesn't surprise me, Dream of Pixels is better set up for the touch screen. Also they might be grumpy (as a lot of us are) that the "New" Tetris was another app, not an update to "Tetris." that many of us bought. (And the Starbucks codes redeemed copies of "Tetris." despite the graphic on the card...)

In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they copied your 'touch-to-drop' mechanism, it's much better than how they implemented it in the "New" Tetris.</rant>

This game is much funner to play especially on a touchscreen compared to tetris.

Haha, thanks! Yeah! That'd be something to post about!

Admittedly, they still did a pretty good job at converting Tetris to the touch screen. I mean, way better then the old "Sliding-Finger" Tetris crippling UX.
