Xwelltris – 2.5D tetris like game

XWelltris is a 2.5D tetris like game.

The idea of this game originated from the Russian programmer Pogitnov. It has the same gameplay concept as Tetris.

Imagine that you are looking into a glass from the top. You see four walls and the bottom. The flat 2D figures falling down from the walls one by one. You can move these figures from one wall to another or rotate the figure. If the figure leaves the wall it moves on the bottom while another figure is pushed. You need to form complete rows and/or columns on the bottom. When you form suchs row they disappear and you receive additional empty space on the bottom and score points.

The game options allow you to play with two, three, four, five or six piece figures, mix them together, show the next figure and switch on rotation of the game board!

Features include:

  • Various modes of gameplay:
    • Dutris.
    • Tritris.
    • Tetris.
    • Pentris.
    • Sixtris.
  • High score chart.
