Opera Mini will fail to provide a game experience using Extreme Data Savings. This is inherent to the way the Opera Mini Servers treat the Trezjr game loop (window.setInterval()). The servers run a handfull of seconds worth of script, then stop, and send you the result. Refer to Opera Mini's documentation for a more detailed explanation.
The ΩJr. HTML5 adaptation of the world's most popular video game
How to play
Hit the start button on the top left. Await the countdown.
Puzzle pieces will appear in the top row of the stacking column. The game contains 7 different kinds of puzzle pieces that drop semi-randomly. They will fall down at a predictable speed, giving you time to fit them together into lines (rows). Each complete line will disappear, making room on top. The game is over when there is no more room to place pieces on top.
Touch-screeners: Use the buttons on the sides of the screen to rotate the pieces, or move them left-right, or make them drop instantly.
Keyboardists: use the cursor keys to do the same. Use the space bar to pause the game.
Each cleared line will increase the speed at which the pieces fall, up to a maximum, making the game more difficult along the way. Points are awarded for cleared lines. The more lines you clear at once, the lower you keep the speed, thus the longer you can keep playing.
We wanted a free game for our young children, that would not annoy them with ads popping up and interrupting game-play.
This is a public beta. Expect things to crash, or not work at all.
ΩJr. did not invent this game. No copyright infringement was intended. ΩJr. intends no profit from this exercise. What you find on this page is merely an html5-representation. It differs from the original in that it lacks some functionality and uses its own algorithms and a limited scoring system. We did not ask for access to the original coding; instead we rebuilt it based on what we saw.
