TetriCycle is Tetris projected onto a cylindrical surface. Rotate the cylinder left/right such that the descending piece falls into place.

TetriCycle is freeware, can be distributed freely and should never be charged for.




Original video here. A higher quality video is available here.


In Game Controls

Any combination of the following control schemes can be used by up to 4 players.

  • "shake" indicates a quick downward movement, causing an acceleration along the z-axis.
  • Any player can pause the game.

Forwarder Channel

You can download a forwarder channel here.

  • Important: If you load the game using the forwarder channel, then you must exit the game using the option "Exit to Wii Menu", or else you will crash your Wii.
  • There's no reason to download the forwarder channel (unless you're bored and want to see what I look like), but I had fun making it.
  • I used CustomizeMii, which is a great piece of software!

Development Log


  • 3rd Release: 4/5/10
  • Better menus.
  • Ability to reverse the direction in which the Tetris cylinder rotates.


  • 2nd Release: 12/14/09
  • Added support for Nunchuck alternative.svg + Wiimote.svg and WiimoteHorizontal.svg.
  • Added support for up to 4 players.


  • Initial Release: 12/6/09
  • I consider this release "pre-alpha", as it's not yet feature complete, but homebrew tends not to follow the typical product development cycle; thus, this is the first "beta" release.
