Title Queue v0.9
Description Queue is a TI89 / TI92+ clone of both Tetris and Quadra. Tetris mode is the classic Tetris that we all love. Quadra is essentially Tetris with gravity. When a line of blocks is cleared, the pieces above fall as far as they can go. This leads to some awesome chain reactions. IMPROVED MULTIPLAYER! [NOSTUB program written in C, source included]

Attention span: 9/10 It's Tetris! Who can say no?
Controls: 10/10 Lets you jump right in.
Implementation: 8/10 No 2p mode but great otherwise.
Overall: 9/10 One word - Sweet.

Tetris. This name almost always guarantees a game success. But there are so many of them, you say? What to do? Throw in some super nifty features to make your program stand out.

Queue does just this. It throws in a shadow showing where your piece will hit (don't worry purists, it can be turned off), statistics for all the pieces that come down, your next three pieces to come, how many times you laid a certain number of lines, etc. etc.

Of course, who wants to play just Tetris? The real icing on the cake is the Quadra mode. This throws the element of gravity into the mix, meaning pieces will fall until they land on something, even after you've placed them. This can make more lines, dropping more pieces, causing a chain reaction. Definitely cool.

The only drawback to Queue is a lack of a two player mode. I would love to build up a massive combo and completely bury my opponent. If it had a two player mode it would have a higher score.

I see need for only two tetris clones: ZTetris with its two player mode and Queue with the chain reaction inducing gravity system. If Queue had a two player mode, then ZTetris would not be needed - this game is THAT good.
