I've been working on a Tetris game that features the BoldPort Club "Matrix" project.

So far, it has the essential game mechanics, increasing speed with advancing levels, and scoring. Later I may add a high-score system.

The controller is a 5-way switch that I salvaged from a cheap webcam, although it's rather touchy. I want to replace it with a rotary encoder to spin the pieces, and buttons to move and drop them. I'm also considering adding 7-segment displays to show the level and score in real time; right now the score is only shown on the screen when it's game over.

The code is not very polished, but it is available on Github. See the G+ post about the game which also includes a video.
