Editors' Review

+

Quinn is a free, "falling blocks"-style arcade game with simple, solid gameplay and thoughtful multiplayer extras. Quinn doesn't tinker with the time-honored format for this popular type of game: four-block "tetromino" shapes fall down a vertical game board, and you have to move and rotate them into a neat stack along the bottom. Every time you complete a horizontal row of blocks, that row disappears and lowers the entire stack, giving you more room to maneuver the infinite supply of incoming, ever-faster-moving pieces.

Quinn does the basics well--the game runs smoothly, and you can customize the appearance of the shapes and the game board with tons of user-created designs on the Quinn site--but what makes it exceptional is the easy-to-use multiplayer features, including in-game chat and an online leaderboard. You can have two-player tournaments on the same computer or over a local network, and you can also play online through public servers listed on the Quinn site. For the truly motivated, Quinn even offers "unofficial," hidden preferences that you can activate through the Terminal. Overall, Quinn is an excellent value and one of the best options on the Mac for a game of this type.

"Addictive fun"

December 21, 2013  |  By M. Pitts-Campbell

 |  Version: Quinn 3.5.7

Pros

Gives a Tetris-like game, with self-selected levels of difficulty. Plays well (all versions), never had a glitch.

Cons

Would wish that it could be made larger on the screen (marked down 1 star for this). As mentioned in the CNET review, also miss the original (Apple ][+, LONG before Nintendo) Russian line drawing backgrounds and music.

Summary

Very good Tetris knock-off. Since there isn't a Tetris for the Mac and this is free, try it. You'll like it!

Pros

Extremely addictive. Ability to change settings. One-player and tournament-style modes, as well as a highscore board. The higher the level, the faster the game, the more addicted the player becomes.
