I would like to see a bluetooth version of this game - we mostly play bluetooth multiplayer here at work since the local wifi blocks a lot of the games.

Favorites include Flight Control and F.A.S.T.

Definitely a 1+ for bluetooth Support!

There're not many quality-bluetooth-games on the store yet, so it's a way to make your game shine..

Thanks for your responses. After we submit our next game (hopefully) this weekend, we'll work on multiplayer for this. We already have something rudimentary up and running, and we've been playing it in the office. We just need to make it more robust.

The next question is : What do you guys want in a multiplayer puzzle game?
Just garbage blocks thrown at your opponents? Up to 4 or 8 way bluetooth?
Special attacks or abilities? Or you just want it now?

Been playing this game for a little while now, its very similiar to Tetris, the main difference being that the pieces are either longer, shorter, or the same size as in that game. The touch controls are good and overall its a nice game. Graphics are decent and the size of the gameboard is just right. There is online leaderboards to submit high scores. The one area where I think the game could use some improvement is sound. There is music and its ok I guess but I would prefer more than one music option to choose from. Sound effects are minimal, when a row clears it almost sounds like a gunshot. Not bad but maybe sampling some other cool sounds would be a good idea and even including them as options for players to choose from would be a nice addition. Maybe add some special effects when the rows clear just to juice up the presentation some more.

Right now the game is good, very playable, nothing flawed about the gameplay. If you want a Tetris style game but feel EA's mediocre Tetris isn't doing you justice, then check this game out. Ill look forward to seeing what kind of creative ideas are implemented into the game in the future. Multiplayer is good.
