BlÃ¶dtris - or Dumbtris as it's called if you install it in english version (the game can be installed in english or german) - is a game that can be sorted into the Tetris-category. Well... at least the name of it claims that sort of kinship. Now it's a bit difficult to write a proper review about it I have to admit. First of all - this game is not really... well... serious. The goal of it is the same as you have in Tetris - you have to build whole lines, they vanish, you get points and after a certain amount of points you go up one level, which means things go faster and so on and so forth.
Weeeellll... this is the case here. Just that there is only one type of block... which is a whole line. And technically you don't really control anything here. The Bricks just keep falling and falling... and you go up one level and one more and so on. So how should we look at this game? The creators call it the end of the line of the long list of Tetris-clones. I'd say look at it as sort of a satire. It mocks the endless stream of Tetris-clones that don't add anything new to the genre. While I do like these in general the question has to be allowed - why? Why do people keep on reprogramming the same gaming idea over and over again? I myself am not such a great programmer and would probably suck at doing a Tetris-clone. But if I had the skills to do one properly - and one has to admit that there are a lot of very well programmed Tetris-clones - well, if I had those skills I'm pretty sure I would invest them into a whole new game instead of doing something not one, not two but at least onehundred people did before me.
So well... this “game” is a good laugh at exactly those programmers who keep on reprogramming.
If you choose to get this and actually play it - always remember: Winning is like waiting, but much more interesting. (quoted from the readme.txt)
