Game Glitches

This is a nice rendition of the original game. Great sound effects and graphics. I've seen a few problems that I'd like to post here so that the developers can fix them.

1. Falling cubes overlap stationary cubes and replace them. This happens near the top and at levels 8 or so and up.

2. Cube left and right movement seems to vary with level. It's too slow at lower levels and at higher levels this is disastrous. It really needs to be consistent no matter the level.

3. Can you do something about that corny "Game Over" graphic? It's way too DOS looking, if you know what I mean.

1) Havn't investigated this yet but will look into it.

2) This could be due to the graphics slowing down - try running the game at lower resolutions - if there are many many cubes on the screen and your graphics card can not render them so quickly, it can affect the responsiveness of the keys.

3) I like the Game Over look myself, so not going to change it, sorry.

Found another one....

Sometimes when you are moving the blocks left or right the falling block will snap back to the immediate previous position right before making contact with the stationary blocks.

I believe it IS processing the keyboard input - moving the graphic - and then it goes back! This doesn't sound like a graphics card issue.

Regarding my earlier post, how can the graphics processor put the blocks exactly one row lower than it should be (by overlaying the block)?

WRT "Game Over", its your game!

The graphics card comment was in reply to the point about the left and right movement being slower or faster on different levels, not about the overlapping problem.

Other points all noted, thanks - will investigate later.
