- move: arrows
- rotate: z and x
- pause: p

My highscore for the given standard configuration is now 2680 ;)

Tetris AI:

The game tetris is played by the computer, which chooses the move that has a maximum blockvalue after landing, where:

blockvalue = number of edges that touch a wall or other block - average height of the block.

Of course other factors can and maybe will be added to blockvalue: we could punish gaps, reward full rows, etc.

After 500 runs, the results of the standard configuration are:

mean: 1733 (160 lines)
worst: 260 (26 lines)
best: 8080 (748 lines)

Tetris versus the AI:

The AI and the original Tetris game are combined in one game. First you make a move in your own field and then the AI makes a move with the exact same block in the other field.
Try to beat the AI!
