The gameplay is nice and I'm sure versus mode is great (I remember something like this in an old Sega PC game).

However, the game graphics are way too simple. It's not polished. It needs an overhauling...

By the way, here's the link for the Rising Blocks Lite:

Embarassing self promotion but... I've made a Tetris Attack like game! From the looks of it I've gone the opposite way to Rising Blocks, tried to make it graphically polished (entirely 3D) but don't have nearly as many features yet.

You can play it free online if you've got the Unity Web Player installed.

If you're feeling generous, it's 99c on the App Store

Hopefully will get an updated version with more features done at some point.

I've been looking for a really polished Tetris Attack/pokemon puzzle league clone for sometime now and I haven't found it yet :-/

Out of interest, what are you looking for when you say "really polished"? Features? Graphics? Something intangible like the general "feel" of the game?

I remember TRISM was one of the first great polished puzzle games out in the app store and it really showed that the iphone could have AAA looking titles from indy developers. What I'm willing to shell out money for in a Tetris Attack is something like this http://ds.ign.com/articles/793/793768p1.html I own the game and it's one of my favorite puzzle games of all time. Of course, I'm really just dreaming though because I understand most smaller scale devs don't have time or resources (or just think it's too risky) to make a game this ambitious.

here's some screens of our upcoming game.

Heavily influenced by Tetris Attack (and Bust-a-Move), if you enjoy TA's chaining then you are going to be interested! I'm planning to get a teaser vid released shortly, and with some luck a Lite version (as well as the full) will be available within a couple of weeks.

As for how it plays, I'll say this - we killed ourselves to make sure to give Tetris Attack (one of my all-time favorites) a run for it's money, gameplay-wise. If you've played that game to death and need something fresh, do keep an eye out-

Oh wow thanks guys I've been looking for a game like "Rising Blocks!"

On the other hand kind of disappointed because a tetris attack clone was what we had on our "next to make" game list... I suppose there is still room for innovation and better presentation.
