A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

You'll yearn for the regular tetris blocks.

Tetris Bane A Tetris clone with a deliberately frustrating set of blocks. There's also a classic mode for the purists, an ultra hard metal mode and even a chill mode!

This game is open source! Check out the code.
