Bastet (“bastard Tetris”) – a free clone of Tetris which tries to compute how useful blocks are and gives you the worst possible brick. Playing bastet can be a painful experience, especially if you usually make “canyons” and wait for the long I-shaped block.
Have you ever thought Tetris(R) was evil because it wouldn’t send you that straight “I” brick you needed in order to clear four rows at the same time? Well Tetris(R) probably isn’t evil, but Bastet certainly is. >:-) Bastet stands for “bastard tetris”, and is a simple ncurses-based Tetris(R) clone for Linux. Unlike normal Tetris(R), however, Bastet does not choose your next brick at random. Instead, Bastet uses a special algorithm designed to choose the worst brick possible. As you can imagine, playing Bastet can be a very frustrating experience.
The last version of Bastat 0.43.2 was released in June 2017.
