  • Really impressed with this, not just a really nice take on the theme but also a nice twist on tower building games in general.

    I think I'd quite like to see a little bit of Tetris added in where maybe it shows you what the next block will be so you can plan accordingly, and potentially also allow you to manipulate the rotation of the block Tetris style before it drops however that may over complicate what is a nice and intuitive game.

Pre-Existing Work
Framework is Ponyblitz, Music by Alexander Ehlers, Sound Effects from the free RPG Sound Pack by artisticdude. Wrote the lighting routines and pretty much everything else during the jam.
