Catalyst Blockbuster Beta

I've recently begun to explore Microsoft's Silverlight 2.0 and WPF. Once I started reading up on Silverlight, I decided that creating a simple game would be a fun way to start the learning process. The first game that came to mind was Tetris.

Using Silverlight 2.0, I was able to create the following tetris-like application called Catalyst Blockbuster in about 16 hours. It is a beta version, and it does contain a few bugs. However, I have started an internal project related to this, during which I am rewriting much of the code, so I don't plan up updating this version further.

It is built on Silverlight 2.0, which can be downloaded at the following link: I am hosting this application using Silverlight Streaming, which was recently upgraded to support Silverlight 2.0.

Special thanks to the author of WPFTetris from here: I browsed through his code to get an idea of how to start my application.
