Polygures is based on the works of Russian mathematician Alexander Iglitsky, who in 1996 invented his "universal theory of tetris". Outrageous as this claim may be, some tetris modifications proposed by him were not implemented till now - when I, Ilya Chentsov, contacted him and proposed it. So, 16 years later, the theory meets practice. - Never-before-seen variations of the falling block game - in abundance, and with a perspective of creating more. - Laconic but original visuals. - Retro game written by a real old man, as opposed to youngsters who are just too lazy to do some good art. - A game with a theory behind it.
Alexander Iglitsky's 1996 article that started it all is now available in English!
