Hi.

I found some years ago a game that we played 1989-1990 called BlockOut that is a 3D Tetris.
And I can now play the original game in a DOS emulator in a browser.
Just Google: blockout online
and you can try some in your browser.
But I could only save my score in browser cookies and that bothered me.
Then I found a game that could save score on a server scoreboard webpage called BlockOut2.
But I had to download it and install it.
Then some years later I found a version on GitHub for a browser in open source that worked quite well.
Just Google: cubeout blockout
and you can find it.
And the code is here.
https://github.com/Ringdingcoder/CubeOut

But I can still not upload score on a server scoreboard so I decided to try my self.

It save score both in browser and on a SQL server webpage now. 😀

I want to make it look and work exactly like the original so if you want to help me,
then I have some code here, on my version on GitHub.

Any bugs or suggetsions?

MagI.

This is nice – especially because the cracked version circulating on the Internet was never officially free – but it really doesn't have anything to do with DOS anymore.

I don't really understand your question. Are you having a problem with HTML formatting..?

I just try to find people who remember this BlockOut game from 1989 and want to be part of the development of this browser BlockOut version with SQL scoreboard.

Pretty decent I must say! Looks relatively like the original game. Of course the 640x350 EGA graphics was something special... but for running in a browser: not bad at all!
Is the playmode configurable? In the original game you could tweak several game parameters.

I will try to make it exactly as the original with all setup parameters.
But hey .....
The coders from 1989 where seriously great people.
This will take time..... 😀

This is how to play it in a browser with a DOS emulator with the original code from 1989.
