The document produced by running Haskell2LaTeX then LaTeX is a detailed explanation of the structure and internals of the program.
Gottet is a tetris-like game written by Graeme Gott. The latest version of the game is 1.1.1 released on January 25th, 2015. It is licensed under the GPL. It is written with the Qt library. The game's website features an optional tipping section near the downloads, as a pay what you want model.
1D Tetris or Tetris 1D is a version of Tetris made to be one dimensional, mostly as a math joke. The game exists in a number of versions, some of them free software. The game is also sometimes described as Tetris for those who think that regular Tetris is too hard.
The game uses 2x2x2 levels, thus having a 8-cell bottom like most 2D Tetris games do.
The source code (there is no media, shapes are drawn automatically) is licensed under the GPLv3 or any later version.
vitetris is a Tetris clone written by Victor Nilsson. It was originally written with only Linux and minimal library dependencies in mind, but is now very portable and can optionally make use of a curses library or Allegro.
|Sedtris||May 26th, 2008||Tetris|
A Bash script can be used, which presses Enter once a second and adds more(?) randomness. The script is based on playsed.sh by Aurelio Marinho Jargas (doesn't seem to have any license attached).
Xultris is a Tetris variant implemented as a Mozilla Firefox extension.
BlockOut II is a falling block game in 3 dimensions. The camera is located at the top of the pit and 3-dimensional connected blocks fall to the ground. You score for filling a complete layer with blocks, you lose when the blocks reach the ceiling. Try to aim for the highscore, but the longer you play, the faster the blocks will fall.
You can move the falling blocks horizontally and rotate them in 3 cardinal directions. To master this game, you must be spatially aware.
