daBlox & daBlox Gold

A game of falling blocks for the hard core fans of Tetris, with a novel twist - first person rotation mode.
Pieces don't rotate, but the board does - creating an unexpected new fun game which will change your perspective.

Also includes:
* Open Feint integration for highscores and achievements.
* 4 new pieces above the classic set, to be unlocked as you play along
* two new game modes to be unlocked

The game was developed in 3 weeks. It was submitted to Apple today and will be live in a few days.

daBlox is free and powered by ads; for a non-ads experience and for instant access to the unlockable games, daBlox Gold will be available for 0.99$

3 weeks, huh? No doubt inspired by this headache inducing video...

It's an interesting concept. I'll have to check it out. Hopefully it doesn't give me as much vertigo as that video.

Actually yes, the board rotation was inspired by http://www.firstpersontetris.com/ (of which I found via BoingBoing.net).
daBlox doesn't pan with the piece's movements, also adding extra pieces, OF integration and other stuff.

PS. also, the headaches effects have been minimized, I tested it on parents, wife and friends and there were no side effects
