bastet — Tetris(r) clone with bastard block-choosing AI
Descriptionbastet (short for "bastard tetris") is a Tetris(r) clone which tries to give you the worst possible block. Playing bastet can be a painful experience, especially if you usually make "canyons" and wait for the long I-shaped block.
Usagebastet tries to conform as much as possible to the tetris guidelines. We refer to those for the rules of the game. In the starting menu, you can configure the key bindings; the default ones are:
- moves the tetromino down (one single step)
- moves the tetromino left
- moves the tetromino right
- rotates CW
- rotates CCW
- drops the tetromino as far down as possible (hard drop)
- pauses the game
exits the game without any further prompt
Playing modesThe game includes two playing modes. In the second one (harder), you do not get the preview of the next tetromino, and the algorithm is modified to take advantage of this.
