    You can find it there: http://code.google.com/p/tris/
    Not much information but a download link.
    You have to upload it to your iPod/iPhone via SSH as usual when there is no installer repository. Shouldn't be too much trouble and I tell you, it's worth it.

    It comes with neat touch controls and quite good looks. It has some bug though and I have no idea how old this release is and whether there is still any progress.
    Anyway, I like it a lot. Found it while tumbling through Google code pages.

    Left/Right like with the Jiggy-Tetris game swiping left or right.
    Swiping up/down turns in either direction.
    Double tap drops the piece.
    There is a bug that lets you play indefinitely, since it won't stop running when you reach the top

    Yeah... it's the best tetris game for the ipot. It's kind of tricky when you first use it but once you get the hang of it... it's just easier to play than the other tetris.

    for the download.
    And to stay on topic, the tetris game play is REALLY smooth. Instead of the regular tetris where you have to press the arrow keys, this tetris or tris just required a gently push right or left and hold to drag the piece. It's much better than the other tetris. The design is sleeker and simple with vibrant block colors. It's amazing how this amazing app was just discovered now (Or rediscovered)

    Under the download tab it says the most recent version was uploaded 5 days ago, so most likely it is still being worked on.

    I have to say, it's an amazing app - this is what game developers need to see. New ways to control old games using the touchscreen technology. Kudos to the developer for not trying to take up half the screen with virtual buttons...

    Oh, and just a hint - you can double-tap to drop the piece straight down
