NAME

       bastet - Tetris(r) clone with "bastard" block-choosing AI

SYNOPSIS

       bastet

DESCRIPTION

       bastet (short for "bastard tetris") is a Tetris(r) clone which tries to
       give you the worst possible block. Playing  bastet  can  be  a  painful
       experience,  especially  if you usually make "canyons" and wait for the
       long I-shaped block.

USAGE

       bastet tries to conform as much as possible to the  tetris  guidelines.
       We  refer to those for the rules of the game. In the starting menu, you
       can configure the key bindings; the default ones are:

       DOWN   moves the tetromino down (one single step)

       LEFT   moves the tetromino left

       RIGHT  moves the tetromino right

       SPACE  rotates CW

       UP     rotates CCW

       ENTER  drops the tetromino as far down as possible (hard drop)

       P      pauses the game

       CTRL+C exits the game without any further prompt

PLAYING MODES

       The game includes two playing modes. In the second one (harder), you do
       not  get  the  preview  of  the  next  tetromino,  and the algorithm is
       modified to take advantage of this.
