Tetris Applet

This is an adapted version of Per Cederberg's Tetris applet. The changes I made are: addition of a high score list that's saved between invocations (in application mode), and more elaborate scoring (e.g. more points on higher levels, additional points for completing several rows with a single figure, and more points for dropping a figure from a higher altitude). Like Per's version, it is released under the GPL. The jar file contains the source code and also works as a double-clickable application.

You need Java enabled in your browser to be able to play this game.

The following keys control the game:

  • Left
    Moves the falling figure to the left.
  • Right
    Moves the falling figure to the right.
  • Down
    Rotates the falling figure counter-clockwise.
  • Up
    Rotates the falling figure clockwise.
  • Space
    Moves the falling figure all the way down.
  • N
    Toggles preview of next figure.
  • P
    Pauses or resumes the game.
  • S
    Increases the falling speed (by one of ten steps).
