Pampling’s Game Port

Game Port by Robert Ritcher is a must-have for the avid Tetris fan. I think having two areas where blocks are stacked, both the dock and the ship, is a brilliant choice because it gives space to show blocks moving in multiple ways (sliding down the ship and swinging from the crane) and being used in different ways (stacked both horizontally and vertically). That creates the story of real-life Tetris being even more difficult than the video game, and it also gives the artist a lot of places to show off the different block shapes (so crucial to making it feel authentic to the game). The strong angle of the artwork makes the stacking feel extremely dramatic, and I like how the outlined versions on the upper left help keep things subtly balanced despite the strong visual skew. Really slick work.
