Tetris Java Applet
The Java applet below runs a Tetris game that has been modified to
play the same pieces over and over. This game must end (in a loss)
before 70,000 pieces have been played. The current high score
is 400. How many pieces can you place?
This site includes a brief explanation
of why you are destined to lose this game, a link to a PostScript preprint of the author's research
paper on the subject, a list of high
scores, and, of course, the applet below.
To begin playing, press the P key while the
mouse is over the applet.
Applet by: Heidi Burgiel
is based on a Tetris applet written by
Nathan Williams of
MIT. The procedure which records high scores was, for the most part,
written by Herky Gottfried and Shikha Ghosh Gottfried. Thanks also to
Daeron Meyer and Adam Rosien for their patience and help in
getting it all running.
