About: RubyTet is a tetris variant written by Han Dao. The project aimed to create the most serious clone, but more importantly make money for its developer.

Latest version: 0.1.6

Homepage: http://wiki.kibabase.com/RubyTet

Changes: Quit button allows people to return to the game menu.

Roadmap: Red gem drillers.

==Initial announcement==
After five month of haitus, rubytet emerged cleaner and healthier after eating too much bad code!

Version 0.0.7.1 comes lost a few features and revert to a tetris clone, but the biggest and most dangerous rewrite of its life is now over. Expect to see rapid succession of new, small features in the next few weeks. If all goes well, rubytet will finally evolve into final form as a multiplayer game a month from now.

In the mean time, the homepage of Rubytet is at http://wiki.kibabase.com/RubyTet

Right now, I am trying to get a working distribution mechanism so that window users don't have jump through so many hoops to try this game.

Edit: fixed link

Rubytet 0.0.8 is now available!


Screenie:

How to play:

Use the arrow keys! Space for complete down. Up for rotating shape, right and left for horizontal movement.


Sorry, there won't be a window executable soon. However, there is a developer who is promising to work a jruby port for rubytet. I guesstimate a month will come by before the guy will have anything.

That looks cleaned up a lot!
Two requests:
-Why don't you put the preview and the current a bit downward that the preview doesn't mess with the score label? ;)
-A frame or a bold line around the game field would look it even more smooth in my opinion :D

best regards Sauer2

Cool, this makes the game optical perfect IMO. :)

Is RubyGame faster than PyGame?
I mean, the PyGame docs recommends me not to draw a whole frame, but to use "dirty rectangles" instead due to the poor performance. So you can't make a sidescroller. So I wonder if this is possible with RubyGame.

That's a lie. I wrote a side scroller in python once without any dirty rectangles.

Anyway, rubygame is like pygame, because it mostly use SDL for most of the heavy lifting. So they're plenty fast for what I wanted to do.

OK, not my lie. Maybe the docs are very old. It also says that OpenGL is disabled or should be disabled. Well, let's see, how PyGame 2 will perform.
About the Sidescroller you wrote: Did it ran with an acceptable framerate with more that, let's say 20 Sprites and a bigger Window that 640x480?

Oh, and I'm curios about your PC's specs. Also, would you expect your game to run on a 400+ mhz ARM CPU ?

I would recommend that you edit your first post with all your updates and then make a new post with a short summary so we all know it has been updated. This way new people coming to this thread will see the current form of the game without having to read the whole thing.

Looking good, by the way. :)

I'm looking at the screenshot and I'm getting ideas to improve the interface, but then I don't feel like using my time on it, because I'm sure it will serve nobody, as tetris games are boring (at least I believe that).

So instead I wonder: how to make tetris an interesting game? Powerups perhaps? Oh I don't know.

The UI are an important polish to any game. I welcome the feedback.

I am way ahead of you and it doesn't involve "power-up". However, the game design I have in mind necessary involve online play and an infrastructure to support it. I am working on it in the "network" branch but it is taking a long time to develop it.
