Extended Comments from Tetris Interview

As mentioned last week, my commentary as part of the Vilcek Foundation's article on Tetris and its creator, Alexey Pajitnov, was published. As also mentioned - and something that I typically like to do anyway - I said I would publish the extended commentary that did not fit in the article. Check it out below, where the questioner is Joyce Li and the answers were supplied by me, Bill Loguidice:

Pajintov and Loguidice - Together in Tetris

OK, maybe not, but I still had the distinct pleasure of providing some commentary for a wonderful new feature article featuring Tetris creator, Alexey Pajitnov, entitled, Alexey Pajitnov's Tetris Plays It Forward-Now an App Fave. The article was written by Joyce Li for the Vilcek Foundation's Fall 2010 newsletter. At some point soon I'll release the rest of the commentary I provided that didn't make it into the article. Enjoy!

Armchair Arcade Games

Please enjoy these free games, courtesy of team members at Armchair Arcade, as well as Neave Games:

Match 3 InvadersMatch 3 InvadersMatch 3 Invaders is a hybrid of two classic genres: the shoot'em up (Space Invaders) and the Match 3 (Bejeweled). Can you concentrate on lining up color matches while simultaneously dodging enemy fire? Can you endure the excruciating time limit as the aliens descend lower and lower upon your position? Most importantly of all: Can you rack up enough points to enter you name on the hallowed High Score Table? Wouldn't you like to know? Match 3 Invaders was created in Unity and runs right in your browser.


Thrust LifterThrust LifterThrust Lifter is a game of timing and precision. Guide your lander into narrow tunnels, avoiding collisions with walls, fires, lava, electricity, and all manner of aliens. Get to the Chilenoids before they run out of oxygen and bring them back to the home pad before taking off to your next destination. Features 15 beautiful levels and an original soundtrack, available as a separate download. If you like the game, purchase a registered copy.


Jeepney JeepersJeepney JeepersJeepney Jeepers is an homage to classics block-busting games like Arkanoid and Breakout but with a crazy twist! Blow up blocks, roast the invaders, rescue your fellow humans and--above all else--get to the last level and take on the awesome might of THE GORFINATOR. Collect upgrades and unleash the unbelievable block-busting power of the five-pronged MULTIBALL. Bust that crit bubble for the amazing SUPERBALL. Bounce up them balls as much as YOU want, no more, no less! If you have trouble downloading the game, try right-clicking on the link and use "save as."

Cool Classic Game Watches

Fossil Atari Centipede Animation WatchFossil Atari Centipede Animation WatchThe last "fun" watch I got, save for a relatively recent MP3/WMA/Voice Recorder/FM Radio/512MB Storage/USB watch, was a Nintendo Tetris watch, which I believe I got around 1998. I just found out about this new watch from Fossil, based around Atari's Centipede (and here are the others). Unfortunately, unlike the classic watches of old - like the ones from the early 80's based around Pac-Man and Space Invaders - you can't actually play this one. That and the high price make this a bit of a dissapointment, despite being well designed and in color. I'll take a classic 70's/80's computer, red LED or playable game watch any day over this, though if I ever saw it cheap enough...
