NAME bastet - Tetris(r) clone with "bastard" block-choosing AI
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 pre‐ view of the next tetromino, and the algorithm is modified to take advantage of this.
