DOWN to MAKE THE BLOCK FALL FASTER
Hello! I've been working on a pico-8 version of Tritris in my free time. If you don't know, Tritris is a web game developed by Goel based on Tetris but with a twist : the blocks are made up of triangles. (I recommend learning how to play on the official website.) I added a few features that make the gameplay a bit different from the original. It's kind of like the difference between modern Tetris and the classic NES version.
There are still a few bugs that I haven't been able to pin down, but I've been sitting on it for about a month now, and I think it's pretty playable. Today I finally uploaded it to itch.io. I decided I'd upload it here as well because after all, I've learned so much from the various Tetris remakes others have made here.
I hope you enjoy!
thanks for playing!
i just realized i should have added the controls into the original post - especially since it differs slightly from Goel's version.
@wsadasd12333 all is not lost when you have a hole: in tritris, there's a mechanic called "phasing" where you can drop, rotate, or slide into a hole when you're right next to it!
@SmellyFishstiks thanks for playing :D phasing might seem strange at first but you get used to it once you understand it, and it makes for a more fair game i think!
@dw817 interesting... maybe i'm not understanding the issue, but i can't seem to recreate it myself. if it's not too much trouble, would you be willing to record it in action?
