Projects / Bastet


Bastet ("bastard tetris") is an ncurses Tetris clone which is harder than every other tetris released. It is based on a heuristics engine which tries to detect which block you need or don't need, and then gives you the blocks that you don't need. For instance, if you usually play by leaving long "canyons" one square wide and then waiting for the long "I" block, you'll have to wait till eternity before you see it. The heuristics have been worked on for some time and are quite nasty.

    Release Notes: This release is a major code rewrite. The algorithm has been split into two: an easier one (with block preview) and a harder one (without it). The algorithms are not fooled as easily as in the previous versions. There is support for user-specific and system-wide high scores files.

      Release Notes: Minor bugfixes. Thanks to those who reported them. There is a brand new AI that should provide much less boring gameplay and avoid some flaws of the old one.
