160x102 actually - enough for a portable unit... ;-)

That was my thought too - the reason for my question. Anyhow,
there is already a Tetris for the Lynx but I'm sure the
'building-blocks' are smaller than 8x8 pixels. Beside a smaller
font size, another solution could be the 'rotation of the Lynx':
It's common style for games that need more vertical than horizontal
resolution (i.e. 'Klax','Centipede' or 'Lexis' (also a Tetris clone)
All these games have 102x160 pixels... ;-)

I'm not sure if the rotation should go to 'conio'.
Maybe it should be a #ifdef'ed Lynx-specific call, when porting
your Tetris to the Lynx...
