Today's xkcd ~ Tetris

I just couldn't help myself after reading it. So if you haven't read it, first: go here. read it. hover text, too, because you have to, every time. not that that part is relevant.

Then go play Hell:

Thanks for the laugh.

jayisgames featured a game a while ago that had some of the same nature, while being, y'know, a game rather than a joke. You had to stack up a tower of Tetris blocks. They were on the grid until they landed, but after that there was a physics model in effect, which could cause blocks to fall off, or the entire tower to collapse. I can't remember its name, though.

I think I played it, or something similar. :) I can visualize all the blocks jiggling from my nice stacks....

Tetris Hell
The game is posted around the net without your developer information at the bottom.
Geekosystem is looking for you.

"Alas, we couldn’t find any info on the creator of the game; if you know or are the person who whipped this together, we’d love to hear from you."

Re: Tetris Hell
Thanks--that's actually someone else's implementation that was released a day or two later, I think. More accurate to the xkcd comic (I was worried about taking the graphic and just cutting it up, for one). :) No idea who did that one.
