LTris

LTris is a Tetris clone with nice effects, graphics, and sound. It has a menu, a highscore, a two player mode, and an advanced game mode in which you get a new figure in each level and later suddenly-appearing tiles and lines.

  •  29 Oct 2013 15:47

    Release Notes: The key state is now cleared when unpausing a game to prevent unwanted block movement by accidently hitting a key. The binary is no longer linked against lib math, as it is not needed.

    •  30 Oct 2011 21:48

      Release Notes: This release adds an option to configure vertical speed for moving blocks down by key, as they drop too quickly on fast computers. A Win32 port is now available.

      •  25 Aug 2011 14:43

        Release Notes: The key for pausing the game, previously fixed to P, is now configurable. If rotation of a block would fail because of a left or right boundary, the block is shifted instead of not rotating at all. The "Game Over" screen can be exited via any key, not just Escape.

        •  03 Mar 2011 14:31

          Release Notes: Pieces are now dealt according to official guidelines: A sequence of all 7 tetrominoes in random order is generated and dealt out piece by piece before generating another sequence, making long runs without a desired tetromino much more unlikely. (At maximum there can 12 pieces before same tetromino is dealt again.) Also, to improve balance in multiplayer games, all players get the same sequence of tetrominoes and expert mode has been modified to deal the most unsuitable piece from the current sequence instead of a random piece.

            Release Notes: This release provides Italian localization and some minor warnings have been fixed.

            cool game, but quitting should be easier
            My wife is totally addicted to this game -- to her, it's the main reason for Linux to exist :-)

            But I echo the complaint about quitting the game. It really should go away when you click the (x) box in the KDE window. It's really not obvious how to get out of it.

            Game is great, but closing it is a bitch!
            ... Ltris doesn't seem to work right with my ximian desktop, clicking the 'X' in the corner of the window doesn't shut it down.


            'esc' requires a 'y' to confirm shutdown, at which point that's one step to 'game over', then another to the 'new game' screen, another to the main screen, and finally one more (plus waiting for fadeout) to quit. That's five keystrokes to stop playing.

            Also, it takes over /dev/dsp even when audio is set to 'off'.
