[Found: Squigs] Looking for a tetris game

Hi, my father used to play this tetris variant like 30 years ago and all I can remember of it is that it had dynamite blocks and very vibrant colors. I'm also not sure was this on my Amiga 500 or Playstation 1.

I know the info is scarce but I was a 6 year old and now I want to give this game to my father for his birthday cause he played it till 4 AM every evening in my room so I still hear those cartoony sounds when he cleared a row

Thanks

Heya darje666,

Welcome to EAB

To be honest I don't remember any "Tetris" game on the Amiga that had dynamite blocks; but my memory could be hazy...

Here are some Tetris / clones on HOL.

Not exactly a Tetris game but the Cartoony graphics and sounds with vibrant colours and bombs keeps making me think of Dynablaster

Thanks guys but none of the above match I'm afraid. I check the whole list of puzzle games on Lemon Amiga and none of the screenshots match anything like that game. Just gotta keep on digging.

I just ran it with a 512k chip 512k slow ram A500 setup with kickstart 1.3

I used the ADF from the tosec set though.
