Here's a rare peek into the celestial kingdom in which the Tetris God decides which shape to send you next.
The Tetris God
Just peek at it.
man that guy was creepy
dang… based on the entry in my RSS feed, I was hoping this article would be video of some crazy-awesome tetris player on a 97-hour run of tetrads.
Tetris may seem like it hates you, but it doesn’t really. Bastard Tetris http://fph.altervista.org/prog/bastet.html on the other hand actually hates you. It sorts the blocks in order of usefulness and then gives you the worst one.
love it, these college humour guys are often better than what’s on tv
So that explains it. I was wondering.
This is why you leave the empty column along the side of the stack, not right in the middle.
The mortal’s hubris, of course, was to dismiss the oracle who normally predicts the next piece. Fool!
That sequence of tetraminoes is impossible in modern, licensed Tetris games. Additionally, the colour scheme is wrong.
In Soviet Russia unlicensed Tetris plays you!
If they didn’t screw up the color scheme, they could be infringing on someone’s IP, oh no!
As a Tetris aficionado, it’s painful to hear the S-tetramino referred to as “reverse squiggily”. Otherwise, amusing.
Yeah, a reverse squiggly is still a squiggly.
