    Using a JavaScript function shorter than a tweet's length!


    An user from a website called 140byt.es managed to implement a JavaScript version of Tetris called 'Binary Tetris' using a function with less than 140 characters.

    Well, this is a surely interesting JavaScript approach. A website, called 140byt.es says it's possible to write a program in no more than a tweet's length.


    This is a Tetris variant with only two types of blocks, called "Binary Tetris".There is no rotation, but it the same basic idea.

    Yes, there are a few things to note, like the fact that the 'game' is pretty limited, and some people says it takes a few more bytes in order to call the routines. It also seems they aren't counting the number of libraries required to operate it, but it's a nice implementation that makes you remember the good old programming days.

    And, if you're bored, you can always participate at the 140byt.es website and go for a challenge.

    You can check the game's demo and its source code at the websites below.
