An Onslaught of Tetrises!

Back in September, I decided I wanted to try my hand at making a Tetris game called BTetris (BASIC Tetris), to expand my abilities as a programmer, and because the CSE had such a fancy colorful screen. Starting Sept 11th, and working on it off and on until yesterday, Oct 30th, I finally managed to get a fully working version, completely done in BASIC with no outside library dependencies.

And during the progress of this project, users encouraged me to make this available to work on the black and white screened calculators, so I did! The screenshots below are from the TI-83 and TI-83 Plus versions, respectively.

Kerm graciously decided to take my version for the color calculators a step further by utilizing the hybrid libraries in Doors CSE to make it shine, and you can see the results here. The game is called Tetric H.

You can find these files at the links below. Don't hesitate to post in the attached topic with questions, comments, and bug reports. If you need help getting BTetris or Tetric H on your TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, this video about putting games and programs on your calculator should help.
