editor's review





LTris is an open source, freely downloadable and cross-platform video game designed as clone of the Tetris phenomenon, which is the most popular falling blocks puzzle game for all ages and genre. It is distributed as part of the LGames project, which contains the LBreakout, LBreakout2, LPairs, MindNoise, LMarbles, and Barrage games.

The gameplay is similar to the one of the original Tetris

In this game, the player will be able to rotate and move the falling blocks, and assemble them into whole lines, which will instantly disappear. The more lines you make, the more points you get. The game is over when the screen gets full.

Features three gameplay modes

LTris features three gameplay modes: Classic, Figures and Multiplayer. While the first one offers a classical gameplay, the second one will reset the screen’s contents to a new figure for each level. The Multiplayer mode allows up to three players to play at the same time.

When starting the game, players will be prompted by the main game menu, which allows them to first configure the controls, graphics and sound. It is also possible to configure various advanced options, such as to enable quick help and center preview, as well as to clear the state of certain keys and to choose between Sync and Async collision checks.

Starting a new game

Starting a new game is as easy as 1, 2, 3. First you click on the “New Game” button, then you configure the game by choosing a game mode, starting level or enable preview and export mode, and then you press on the “Start Game” button.

Control the falling blocks with the up, down, left and right arrow keys. When the game is over, press the Esc (Escape) key to return to the new game options. Press the Esc key again to return to the main menu, and press the Esc key once more to exit the application.
