Flutter Tetris Game Guide
This guide will help you understand the Tetris game code written in Flutter. The game consists of a grid where Tetromino pieces appear and fall. The player can move and rotate the pieces to fit them together. The goal is to create full horizontal lines, which will then clear and grant points.
This game uses no 3rd party packages, it is built purely in Flutter. Some basic dart packages were used.

gameBoard is a 2D list that represents the game grid.

5. Player Controls
The following methods allow the player to move and rotate the current piece:
moveLeft(): Moves the current piece to the left.
moveRight(): Moves the current piece to the right.
rotatePiece(): Rotates the current piece.
build() method creates the game UI, which consists of a grid, score display, and control buttons.
Hope you enjoy the code and the game!
