Bastard Tetris

June 22nd, 2005 by Rory

I had heard about Bastard Tetris or “Bastet” before and it sounded like it would be quite difficult. It’s just regular Tetris except that it uses a special algorithm to determine the absolute worst piece to drop. The preview pane shows you what piece you were probably hoping to get. I don’t think I’ve ever played a game that made me so mad. It dropped about a dozen of the same S-shaped pieces on me and I almost lost because I had nowhere to put them. After playing the game for about an hour I decided that it wasn’t worth my time — though it definitely will sharpen your Tetris skills as you have to learn new patterns to place things. The usual setup for a tetris will NEVER work in this game, so you have to rely on just getting as many lines as possible. I got two lines at once and that was damn spectacular. I ran around the computer lab screaming “OH YEAH, TWO-LINE BONUS, BEESNIATCHES!!!”
