Demo: LiveTris shows how powerful the new Mango Live Tiles can be

Rudy Huyn, the developer who brought you TVShow, has just posted up a video showing how one could create a Tetris game, using just the new and expanded Live Tiles in Mango.

The developer has no plans to actually release this commercially, but the code exists and he's going to be putting it out on Codeplex for others to look at. The point, of course, was more conceptual: to make an app without an app. And in doing so he took advantage of Mango's new features for developers, including multi live tile + agents + deep link.

It's nice to see devs like Rudy pushing the boundaries of programming less than 24hrs after the release of the Mango SDK. It will be very interesting to see what devs come up with next!

This is quite amazing proof of the potential behind the new tile features. Nice.

Hello !For information is just for fun to try the new features of SDK (which are not documented yet ...)!Basically, I wanted to use controls "previous song / next" to move the pieces but it does not work with the emulator. If I have a device, I add:)I try to publish the code next week

Very cool, but I'm glad Rudy didn't play the game to completion! ;)
