JSLines Game

Start The Game

The idea for this game (and some of the images) are stolen directly from the 'GLines' game that ships with the GNOME desktop environment. I implemented it in JavaScript as an exercise to learn about the DOM etc.

Game Play

Download

You can download the game from here. It will be a lot more responsive if played from your hard drive rather than downloading the images across the net.

You'll need a program to 'unzip' the game files - I recommend ZipGenius (it's free). Then just double-click the 'game.html' file to launch the game.

Prior Art

As I mentioned above, I wrote this version of the game as a learning exercise. I have since discovered that Alexander Gogava implemented the same game in JavaScript well before me. He has lots of other games too (but not Tetris).
