SIS has to be installed on same disk drive as python interpreter 1.4.x: either both on Phone Memory or both on Memory Card.
I always use memory card for both PyS60 interpreter and these applications, never had a problem.
No Symbian Signing is needed, you can install SIS as-is.
The playing field is vertical 10x20 square field. There are seven different shaped pieces dropping down ever faster, which you have to arrange nicely at the bottom. All full rows are removed, to give you some more space to arrange even more pieces.
You can play either with joystick or keyboard or both at the same time
You get to next level after removing 10 rows. At each level the speed of pieces dropping increases.
I started Jomtris late 2008, when I had flu and some fever. Wanted to check the old tetris.py sample, but it just kept crashing. So I started to debug, couldn't understand how it worked and did some minor renaming, reordering, optimizing etc. normal things that people do.
The big mistake
happened, when I got rid of busy game loop and made things work by
events. I should have gotten well first and then forget all about
tetris! I really should have!

Source code is not made available.
There are people, who believe all software should be free. They don't listen to any excuses.
There are people, who believe software developers should be able to make a living. They don't listen to any excuses.
My excuse for those who listen:
I wish to make commercial PyS60 applications in near future, if such thing is possible. At some point I will release an application without source code, so might as well practise it now.
Nevertheless, please enjoy!
