Thousands of omgpop.com members are left disheartened today as one of their most popular games - Blockles - has undergone a drastic change to become a completely different non-Tetris game. Upon viewing the blockles page members are greeted with the words "The previous version of Blockles is no longer available." Forum threads from members trying to figure out and make sense of what happened to their beloved game are quickly deleted by omgpop moderators, leaving them to only speculate what happened. Many believe this is related to the TTC lawsuit filed several months ago.

Information about the TTC lawsuit can be found here

So what does this mean for Tetris? It appears as though this change also coincides with the recent launch of Tetris Friend's Live beta. No matter what your stance is, one thing is evident - the Tetris clone scene is dealt a big blow by this news. More details to come.

New blockles=puyo puyo with targetable items. And guess what hit machine is? that's right. it's beatmania. Gemmers=collapse with targetable items. Baloono=bomberman. They just make one clone after another. And TTC BUYS "decent" popular games. they just send takedowns to bad ones. :)

Lol anarchy.. I would imagine blockles got taken down because it was so popular.. tnet is still up and blockbox has like 30 regular users, if that. Oh and tetrisfriends is a ttc game so it won't be taken down Jakey.

That is horrible. All other tetris based games have no chance. At least the new blockles is a game I like to play too. Hope they don't get sued for that too.

I guess I'll have to rely on porn full time now for entertainment. Just kidding.

I won't lie, I can't say I feel for this very much (would have been devastated 6 months ago), but I still gotta pay respect to my birthplace anyway. Rest in peace.
