Quinn 1.3

Quinn is an implementation of the popular arcade game Tetris, written specifically for Mac OS X. It features a neat user interface, perfectly integrated with Aqua, and a smooth look and feel for best user enjoyment. The goal was not to reinvent the game with yet another modification of the rules, but to stick close to the original implementation. Still there's everything one might expect—including a personal highscore for each player, configurable keys, and a custom number of "garbage" rows on startup.

- individual highscore list for each player
- highscore also records the number lines per minute
- highscore file is now encrypted
- more than one keyboard setting can be saved
- two new speed levels
- even more responsive on slower machines
- now begins new games at the same level as the last game
- remembers window positions
- a slight change in playing behavior gives the player a bit more time to move a piece before it freezes
- improved documentation
- now comes as a compressed disk image rather than a StuffIt archive, due to problems that StuffIt Expander 8 has with applications
