For those who don't know how to play Tetris, the idea is simple. You rotate the pieces
and move them left or right in order to fill up solid rows of blocks. Every time you
fill another row, it disappears and the stack moves down one space to make more room.
This game keeps a record of high scores, so you can compete with other players.
You will see the high scores after your game is over.
If you want to earn points faster, skip ahead a few levels by
pressing the plus (+) key.
You can earn more points by clearing multiple lines at once.
Also, lines are worth more points at higher levels. You will notice that as
the game goes on, the pieces fall faster and your level increases. For that
reason, a line at level 0 (the first level) is worth only 40 points, while
one at level 1 is worth 80 points, and so on.
