Why that unconventional keyboard configuration? It’s 20 years that we use the arrow keys to move the blocks, and use UP to rotate it…

Andrea, Tetris has its roots from nintendo. Grid movement on the left, rotation on the right. Every solid gamer should at least be used to that alternate configuration.

@laurent: That’s correct. There was no real Ajax going on – but as you said, I might eventually incorporate some to save high scores etc…

@laurent: On top of what Dustin Diaz said, the article does not claim it is Ajax.

[…] Der Grund weshalb das Spiel entstanden ist, war eine Wette. Er hat gewettet, dass er Tetris mit JavaScript in einem Tag entwickeln kann. Die Wette hat er verloren, denn er hat 2,5 Tage benötigt. Jedenfalls ist das ein sehr schönes Beispiel für die Möglichkeiten mit der Yahoo! User Interface Library. via (Ajaxian) […]

Crud, it’s down. Legal threat, I guess.

But the status message is pretty funny.
