    Gaming Cockroach - schizokoa - Mini LD 49 Entry

    ... Gaming Cockroach is a game about a cockroach that loves to play Tetris... Yet, a Nes pad is quite big for a cockroach!

    I'm pretty confident that this is both the most unplayable version of Tetris ever and one of the most stupid games on the internet :3

    Yet it's fun and it features quite a lot of new things for me:
    _Local multiplayer (twice as many cockroaches! You need to have at least one gamepad to play it)
    _Online leaderboard (so don't freakout if your firewall ask :p)
    _3D (Used during the development... The game is still 2D)
    _Konami code! (A Konami code? What Konami code? Where to use it? What does it do?)

    This is also the first game I did all alone (Even though Etienne did help me with php... But technically it's not inside the game), and I'm very satisfied: I put everything I wanted in without even rushing.

    You need to have at least on gamepad to play multi, sorry, I'll add it to the description.

    •Graphical bugs (especially in multiplayer)
    •If there is no gamepad connected, you will know that you can't play multiplayer
    •Fixes in the Tetris (won't crash at the end anymore)

    Awesome idea and great execution. I hope you can excuse that I didn't play very long though ;)

    Love the little touches like the leaning D-Pad when you press on it.

    Excellent idea! Not as easy as one could imagine... Will you try to implement another game?
