Xbox 360 Tetris
Tetris is a puzzle game created by Alexey Pajitnov using random tetrominos (shapes made of four square blocks) that fall down a playing field. The goal is to create horizontal lines across the playing field with the tetrominos in order to score points and achieve the highest score possible. Features that this game will include are: 1 player game play, 2 player local game play, 2 player network game play, music and sound effects, saving high scores, and power-ups to change game play mechanics. The Xbox 360 is the platform of choice due to the XNA framework (a set of tools that facilitate game development) and Xbox Live (a service for playing games online).
