Dev Challenge! Is Squarez Deluxe worthy of an iPhone port?

Hey Gang,

My favorite puzzle game of all time is Squarez Deluxe! Grab the weird Tetris like pieces, place them on the field, and if you can get a solid block of at least 3x3 cells, the bricks disappear. Where the game really excelled, however, is in all of the wild powerups stored in the cells of the pieces. Stuff like acid, goo, missiles, bombs, spikes, etc. to either help or hinder your attempt to keep placing pieces on the field. It's a 1993 DOS game but it worked fine in XP for me (no sound, however). If nothing else it surely would be a great source of inspiration for something greater by some of you crafty developers.

OT: There was a PC Tetris version with BOMBS. Very basic graphics, just little black bombs, played it around 1990 or so. Anyone remember the name?

We that on the iDevice and I may never have a life again
