The main goal in Tetris is - to not let the pieces stack up to the top otherwise you'll lose. Once a 5x5 layer of blocks with the same color is formed,  the layer will be cleared. And, You need to arrange and fix the coming pieces in such manner. That, they should not Stack-up against the top wall. All, you need to do is to rotate, Move and position the pieces in a manner to fill the lower layer. So, that You can get more space for the coming pieces.

Move pieces with arrow keys, rotate them around z-axis using Z, rotate them around x-axis using X, rotate around y-axis with C, and drop the piece using spacebar. The Control and usage is quite simple and easy to understand. And, the 3D output on the CMD screen makes it much more sexy than before. 💗 💗If you'll remove more than one layer in a go you get more points!

  1. The Main command for the 3D is cmdgfx (by Mikael Sollenborn (misol1), the game author itself), with the 3d operation and it's sprite system.

    So, the batch code manage only all the logic and placement (not really easy however) the external since the external command manage rendering 2D and 3D stuff like a game engine or advanced library.

    Good job to him !

    1. Yeah I know right! And even though the plugin does most of the work, it's still hard to produce that much of a smooth gameplay. All in all Blockout is a great game.

    2. maybe you can do a tutorial about cmdgfx.exe?

    3. We'll post an article about cmdgfx too in the coming weeks! But since it's that much complex, we'll have to figure out it's usage too first!
