Default [Game][2.3+]Antigravity Tetrix

Hello to the forum from (troubled) Greece. I'm posting my first game on the android universe:

The game: Antigravity Tetrix



Get it on Google Play


Top features...

It is a whole new take on the classic tetrimino puzzle..

- Solve the puzzle while antigravity occurs and blocks fly away.

- Play on 6 different planets where nature events and alien attacks occur.

- Defend your tetrix territory from alien miners.

- Exploding blocks, thunderstorms and missile attacks increase difficulty

The first 6 planets are somehow easy (for the experienced tetris player), but more planets are on the way

Screenshots




Requirements

Works on all devices (phones, tablets) from 2.1 up to 4.3. Game shows best on larger screens
(> 3") but works ok on smaller ones too, so you can try it on your old 2.7" phone

Get it on Google Play

Found out about your app on the portal.

Looks good so far, but the controls need to be advanced. On my Nexus 7 the game just doesn't feel snappy, the control is delayed and not very accurate and doesn't get all my inputs.

So I am sorry, but I have to say for now I prefer the Tetris from EA.

Include a multiplayer mode like the tetris like on the PSX/PSONE/PS1 Version and fix the control and it's gonna be good

EDIT: But don't get me wrong, great project nevertheless

Thanx for the comments.

It is strange that response is not snappy since we've tried it on
several actual devices (ranging from 2.1 phones to lame chinese
tablets with little or no memory available) and response was not
a problem.

Can you help us pinpointing this response problem ?

a) Update to tetrix 1.1 which reduced frame rate from 45fps to 40fps
(since fps doesnt make a difference on block games like tetris).

b) Try DISABLING "background scrolling" on the Tetrix preferences
(it should make a difference, especially if your device is loaded
with running apps) In version 1.1 this (background scolling) is
not active by default

Your feedback will be appreciated.

PS: Version 1.1 also introduces 4 new levels (so 10 levels
are now available, including blitz mode)

There have been tons of updates since we last posted Antigravity Tetrix on XDA.
Then it was version 1.1 and now it has reached version 1.9 !!!

Now the game features 16 planets to play, new enemies and nature effects, improved frames
per second and drastic reduction of battery consumption.

One of the most fun tetris games out there

The original review by XDA is here (when it had only 6 planets to play )

Direct APK download is here: http://www.carbonpeople.com/android/TetrixRelease.apk

and ofcourse on Google play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...npeople.tetrix

Tons of updates since 1.9, current version is now 1.17 !
  • Two new levels
  • Game engine updated for smoother graphics
  • Less battery consumption (due to HALF_WAKE_LOCK)
  • Moved to google play services, min android version is now 2.3
  • Dozens of minor optimizations
