VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A Vancouver man has taken pumpkin carving to a new level by turning one into an arcade game and the amusing 'How To' video is going viral on YouTube.

Nathan Pryor created Pumpktris mixing the physical features of a pumpkin with Tetris. He turned the stem into a joystick, and he made one of the sides into a screen.

On his website, Pryor explains how he made it work.

Earlier in the month I was looking through (an idea notepad) and found 'Make Tetris Pumpkins' from sometime last year, Pryor notes on the website. Since Halloween was only a few weeks away and it was too late to start growing pumpkins, I thought 'Why not make a pumpkin you can play Tetris on instead?'

His high score so far:9,800 points.
