…Tetris is now available in HD?

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

Tetris HD

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.

…It’s TGI Friday: 99 Bricks?

99 Bricks

I got 99 problems but a brick ain’t one.

99 Bricks is like an anti-Tetris. The goal is to use 99 bricks to create a tower that is as tall as you can make it, but in 99 Bricks, and unlike in Tetris, the blogs have a bit of give to them.

The result is that as the tower gets taller, it starts to sway and wobble under its own weight, and one misplaced brick can bring the whole thing crashing to the ground.

The controls are simple, the graphics are simply perfect, and the concept is easy to understand, but difficult to master, so it’s the perfect weekend time waster.

Be prepared though, because this one’s addicting.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Spada Vetture Sport TS Codatronca?

Spada Vetture Sport TS Codatronca

Spada Vetture Sport’s TS Codatronca looks like the car Batman would dive if the Batmobile got a bit boring one day.

The front looks like a cross between a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, and a Corvette, and the rear looks like…like…well, it doesn’t really look like anything else on the market right now, since a giant Tetris tail and stealth bomber lines aren’t exactly in vogue over at GM’s design shop.

The interior however is both beautiful and functional, with plenty of suede and carbon fiber to remind you that you aren’t in a car that will serve fleet time as part of a rental program.

The engine also reminds you that you’re in a race-bred car, with 600 horses on tap, and a short ratio gearbox to compile with FIA GT1 regulations.

For the green lovers, there’s an ad-hoc “converter kit” that allows you to fuel the car with E85 ethanol and also gives you a slight increase in torque and power.

It’s definitely not your daddy’s supercar, but then, who wants that anyways?

…Retro games have been sabotaged?

Retro Sabotage

Retro Sabotage takes classic arcade favorites and gives them a modern twist.

New games are updated each Thursday, and so far, Tetris, Pong, Pac Man and Space Invaders have already gone under the knife, so there’s plenty to play with.
