Kobo Touch Does Tetris

The Kobo Touch hacking community might be smaller than that of the Nook Touch, but every so often they do some amazing things.

The following video was sent to me this morning. It shows a Python based Tetris clone running on a hacked Kobo Touch. It’s the latest project of Kevin Short, and he’s also gotten a Pong clone from Pygames running on the Kobo Touch as well.

The Pygames port might actually be the more interesting news here. That is a bundle of games, not just one. Thanks, Kevin!
