SYNOPSIS

bastet

DESCRIPTION

bastet (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.

USAGE

bastet 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:
DOWN moves the tetromino down (one single step)
LEFT moves the tetromino left
RIGHT moves the tetromino right
SPACE rotates CW
UP rotates CCW
ENTER drops the tetromino as far down as possible (hard drop)
P pauses the game
CTRL+C exits the game without any further prompt

PLAYING MODES

The 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.

FILES

$(HOME)/.bastetrc User options

$(HOME)/.bastetscores User-specific high scores file (used only if the system high scores file is unavailable)

/var/games/bastet.scores System-wide high scores for bastet.

OPTIONS

None.

BUGS

Many.
