A downloadable game for Windows and Mac OS X

Trixel is a game made in 24 hours for the UWW GAMED Filament Games sponsored game jam.

Theme: Triangles!

This is a falling block puzzle game with triangles! use the arrow keys to move the piece, up arrow key rotates the trixel, down arrow key pushes the trixel down, and spacebar will send the trixel down to the bottom immediately!

Try to fit as many trixels into the giant trixel in the center of the screen as possible. Each trixel fit into the giant trixel will earn you a point. Try to get 100% of the trixel filled up! Click the finish button when you can't fill the trixel anymore and see your results.

Install instructions


latest version of offline Java. (this might be why your game doesn't launch)

After downloading, unzip the file and run the "PlayTrixelWindows.bat" file if you use windows, and "PlayTrixelMac.sh" file if you use Mac OS X. You don't run the TriangleTetris.jar file, but if you know how to run jars from the command line (and have Linux for instance...) then go ahead!
