Tetris- Not functioning properly

Hi All,

I tried to run a code which was developed by one of my friends but the code is not running as expected. I tried to debug the code to figure out the problem, but was not successful. Would some one mind to look into this and explain me the problem..

This code is based on Tetris game


When I ran this, the starting score is displayed as 3430. When I debugged the code, instead of "0".

Can some one help me in understanding the problem and the possible solution to correct that.

Here is the problem :-

This method checkGame() loops N rows and N columns
This will in turn call checkShape() method which will loop 15 times i.e for the shape for each row and column
This will in turn call clearShape() method which loops till next value becomes 4 adn updates the totalscore and then so on ....

I tried printing rows and columns when the total score is updated,
You can try the below code to see when totalscore is updated


I believe the logic is completely off ...
