Build me a heart by TheAlleyRat Build me a heart by TheAlleyRat
It's not easy, and if you mess up... you have to start over.
Tetris represents a guy trying to build a relationship. But it get's harder the further up he goes, messing up along the way. Thus, he has to start over to try and build the love.

Just an idea I had while playing the game. I said...heeeey xD

*also, I've had some complaints about the shapes being inaccurate. Yes I see that, but the reason for it is simple. I didnt think this would be noticed (like some other contests I've entered). Nor did I think I even had a chance, so I just did what was best for me. Sorry for the confusion.

Vision: i thought you accomplished exactly waht you wanted to, and portrayed it perfectly (5)

Originalty: haven't seen anything like this (5)

Technique: 5, becasue whantever you did, it worked haha (5)

Impact: you expressed yourself and lack of the ability to be in a perfect relationship nicely. although you seem to be not satisified with nayrelationships, i would have makybe liked to have seen a couple rounds of this game being played, round one he screws it up, but round 2 or 3 he completes the heart (it is afterall valinines day :D)
but i can understand whyyou didn't (to keep true to the fact that you think he'll mess up, or that you wanted it to stay short and sweet and simple)
one other thought, i'm not sure about other tetris games, but after i lose on mine, it says game over... that might be to difficult to do on the pixil grid (but then look what you've done here!) and it's just a thought (4.5)

overall, this is amazing and original, and so clever
good luck, this deserves to win
What do you think?

Lemme start by saying this thing is awesome! ^^ Anywho.

The lines arn't very straight but that makes it a bit easier on the eyes to me. The colors are great and the speed is nice. I like the black line surrounding it. And I also agree with what you said about love vs tetras.

This isn't a bad thing, per say, but it drives me insane when I end up just staring at this thing for HOURS trying to get it to build a heart! XDDD

I need to say 100 words in this thing so BLA BLA BLA BLA BLA BLA

your tetris is all wrong, the blocks are REALLY wrong (mostly all) :( just saying :D but I love it though, especially the message :love: :heart:
