Quads MP HD is Bubble Imagineering' first ever game. Produced thus far for the iPad, this game was inspired by our owner's sister, who loves the legacy game Quads is based on, but through time has found it has gotten easier and easier. We set out to create a game that goes beyond where other "Tris" like games have gone, providing a much more engaging and challenging experience.
Quads uses the 7 standard (I, L, J, S, Z, T, and O) tetromino pieces falling from 4 different directions toward a square center Drop Zone. The twist with Quads is, players must arrange the randomly falling pieces into complete Quadrilaterals (Squares or Rectangles) centered around the Drop Zone in order to clear any tetrominos from the game board. For added challenge, when levels are cleared, the game randomly chooses whether to speed up the standard movement of tetrominos, or increase the size of the center drop zone (shinking the fall area pieces have, and increasing the minimum size of the Quads that must be built). Beyond these challenges, a player may choose to have multiple tetromino pieces falling simultaneously.
Figure 1 shows Quads MP HD being played in multi-player mode with 4 players. Notice all 4 directions have pieces falling toward the center drop zone (purple colored square in the center of the gameboard), the colors of the pieces falling match the colors of the players currently playing, and a "hold" location on each side of the gameboard. In multi-player mode, pieces are assigned to users by color, if you are player 1 and your color is green, all green tetrominos are assigned to you.
