Morphris -- if you like fitting cats into small spaces, then this is the game for you!

A take on Tetris where the pieces don't rotate -- they morph!

Made with ReactJS / Aseprite and no game engine.

No sound this time as I only had a day this weekend.

Thanks for playing!
<3 Stevie

PS: My hi-score is 9800 -- post yours!

FIRST BLOOD! - First game I try and rate in this submission. (led by your nice comment, thank you!)

I'm truly surprised, a bit hectic, but in a good meaning, because I'm surprised.

Simple Tetris, with a twist that blew my mind!

3 overall, because it's kinda average, but I hope you won't consider it something negative.

Definitely 5 for Innovation and 4 four Theme.

It's fun because it's tetris! Graphics are cute, too.

It's an interesting twist on Tetris. I like how the cats reposition themselves for the different forms. It seems like natural "shapeshifting" if you exclude the box-to-cross cats! Haha

Fantastic use of the Theme!

it was basically tetris with very interesting stones and turning features, which was hard to predict and understand but very fun to play. A nice feature was that once you finish a line, the blocks fall in place, so you can come back from a bad mess (which is nice for not so good tetris players like me). the art was fitting and very polished. choosing a cat as stone also benefitted the mood. it is a very nice submission, thank you :)

@justacookie Yeah, I added the save your butt blocks fall into space feature after you complete a block to make it a bit easier. As long as you can make at least one line you have a chance to come back!

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
