Hangame is the largest(they claim lol) online gaming medium in South Korea.(which means pretty much the world, internet-wise) Hangame Tetris was taken down years ago, then only available to the Korean IP's, then they got it working internationally again.

Hangame is not just Tetris - it's the Korean name of Ijji. And The Tetris Company bought out N-Blox, which is also crap.

Hangame Tetris was higher quality. :) Seriously, i think they felt that blockles was an insult to the tetris name.

If your facts are right, Blockles is a part of OMGPOP, which has many games. Hangame is just tetris.

Wasn't Hangame originally an unlicensed Tetris game as well? How come they bought out one and sued the other? (Or do I have my facts wrong...)
