A small Tetris-implementation to be used directly form the Julia REPL



This started as an exercise to learn terminal rendering and key-input. Tile-colors, scoring, button-mapping, speed and levels are in accordance to the Tetris Guideline. T-spins and wall kicks are not yet available, but will be added soon.

This is a screenshot playing in the VSCode REPL:
