…Tetris is now available in HD?

Most things are better in HD, but apparently, Tetris is not one of them:

Made as more of an art project than as an actual game, Tetris HD will take you longer to play than it’s worth, but if you turn off your monitor and just check back every so often, the designs that result from the random starting position of each piece are at least beautiful to look at in a confusingly poetic sort of way. (Makes me wish they offered the game as a screensaver…)

Just don’t expect to get your name on the high score list any time soon, since the people that are going for that honor are probably still playing at this very moment.

Mirror's Edge 2D

Considering some of the reviews I’ve read of Mirror’s Edge (See Yahtzee’s Zero Punctuation Review for an example) Mirror’s Edge 2D might just be the first advergame that’s better than the original!

Mirror’s Edge 2D was developed by Borne Games (the same folks that created the Fancy Pants Adventure series) and it borrows and updates heavily from the already fantastic controls to create a fluid experience that will have you running up walls, sliding under bars, and jumping across chasms in no time.

It’s also a very open game, with lots of room to explore, and you can earn achievements along the way that will help you rank on the global leaderboards that they keep updated with the top scores.

Think you can beat your high score?
