On a personal node, I'm proud to say that, after over 10 years of on-and-off development (mostly "off"...), Falling Block Game finally has all the features that were ever planned for it. Please give this release a shot and send along any bug reports. Once everything stabilizes, Falling Block Game will (finally) be declared complete!
Developing Falling Block Game from the ground up (twice) has been a great experience and I've learned a lot about writing/debugging cross-platform code, creating sound effects and 2D/3D graphics, promoting beta releases, and listening to feedback. Thanks for your support and I hope you enjoy playing Falling Block Game as much as I do!
