3D Tetris BlockOut from 1989 now online with sql scoreboard

  1. Hi.
    I played a 3D Tetris called BlockOut 1989-1991 and then 2019 I found it again.
    It can be played with original source code in a browser with a DOS emulator.
    Just Google: blockout online
    and you will find some to try.
    But you can only save score in cookies of browser.
    So I then found BlockOut2 that you can download and after game you can save score to a server and be ranked with gamers from all over the world.
    But I do not want to download anything to play BlockOut.
    So I found a GitHub code of a BlockOut version and now I and friends have been able
    to make it save score to a server.
    So our version is in JavaScripts, PHP and HTML5 and it just run in your browser
    and after game score is saved on global server and in your browser.

    What do you think of it?

  2. Can someone please try it and say what you think about it?
     
  3. A few things:
    • all the pieces start in the upper left corner, why not in the middle?
    • a description; maybe a preview for the block sets would be helpful
    • the randomizer seems to be pure random, which feels unfair at times. But that might be a design decision
    • add sound effects?
     
  4. --------

    1. Yes. I will try move start position to center.
    2. Yes. But the original version did not have it but I will make it possible to choose a preview in settings as a special game version.
    3. Yes.
    4. Yes. It will be implemented.

    Regards MagI
