Anyone try Rising Blocks yet?

I just got this game and though it was great! It is a real nice version of Tetris Attack with 5 different modes (including VS CPU which I sorely missed in Aurora Feint) and even includes a nice amount of acheivements.

There are only three real things I can complain about:

-Lack of sound (there are sound effects and you can play your own music without it being scratchy, just no music)

-Wifi requires both players be on the same router

-a small, but noticable, loading time at startup. (like 5 seconds)

Really nice game at $2.99, just really would push it over the edge if they included sound and an actual wifi server!

hey guys thanks for playing my game! I'm glad you liked it

yeah that little loading screen time is hard to fix I'm not sure what is causing it, I noticed it was a bit long too, something isn't right.

I might add music later in an update, I actually have some background music that fit well. I probably made a mistake not adding it.

but again thanks for all the support it really does help motivate me to create something nice for people to play

As I have already posted, you do have an awesome game here Chandler55. Always nice to see a developer browsing the forums!

Music would be a great update, glad to see you consider it.
