Torus: 3D Tetris Fun

Category: Fun, Games

Nearly 4 years ago, Ben Joffe created a fun Tetris-like game called Torus that takes the classic and makes it cylindrical. He just updated the game now that browsers can power his canvas game sooo much better.

  • Smooth falling motion
  • Smooth left/right motion
  • Row clear animation
  • Slightly higher playing field
  • Visual indication of death zone
  • “Sparkling” blocks
  • New points system
  • New piece types (you’ll have to wait a while to see these appear).

Nice work Ben!

Canvas is cute but if we have lots of object on screen (>200) performance is horrible… We really need GPU hardware acceleration for beautiful and rich online javascript/canvas game. This is why I use pure HTML/javascript in my project:
