Yes, it’s much harder. I suggest to use smaller well dimensions, like 6x6 or 7x7 and max depth. Did you see the original DOS game named FRAC? It was a very good game back in the day.

I’ve read this. The problem with Setris was also because of the similar name to Tetris and the music. It’s funny, but the game has now changed title to Sandtrix and it’s allowed to exists. Well, we will see. If someone from TTC would ask me to remove the game, I do it and can’t help it. But until then I don’t feel I did something wrong if I don’t earn money on it and I give credits to the original author of Tetris.
Thank you. I understand that and respect your opinion. You’re right about music sharing and piracy. I agree with you. It’s a bit different case with software because I don’t copy the original protected game and share it, so it’s not piracy. I just made a similar game like many others, but I don’t earn money on it and I even wrote about the original Tetris in the help file included with game. I hope no one resents me about another one Tetris clone made in a homage for this great game. Thanks for the feedback about the Debian. I’ve heard that it works fine on Wine but never tried it.
Probably all developers don’t have any written permission. But there are thousands of Tetris clones all over the world and I don’t think that TTC is pursuing the developers for the rights to the name or game. Especially if game is not titled ‘Tetris’. Besides my Trismania is not a copy of Tetris. It’s a similar game with 3D well. Besides, look at the date. I made it more than 15 years ago and it was downloadable all this time from my website. But if you feel unsafe, don’t download it, please. It’s your decision.
I love it! This reminds me very old classic Ironman’s Off Road from arcade, PC, Amiga and other platforms. But changing it to the farm style is outstanding idea! I hope to see it finished :)
Thank you! It was much work to adjust everything to make it as close to original as possible, but still with a modern touch. And most important for me was to make the responsive movement. If you press a key in any direction, you must be sure Rockford will move immediately.
Ha ha ha! That’s a real frog plague! I love the idea of reversing roles in Frogger. Great! I wish the frogs would be a bit smarter and try to avoid the cars by moving backwards or speeding up horizontally to run away. But even now the game is fantastic!
Robbo na zawsze w moim sercu. Zaraz obok Boulder Dash, jedna z intrygujących gier, okropnie trudnych, wciągających, z super grafiką i klimatycznymi dźwiękami. Co prawda mam to w emulatorze Atari, mam wersję na PC, ale fajnie zobaczyć wersję przeglądarkową niemal identyczną z oryginałem! Dobra robota :)
Oh, my bad, I was suggested by the Atari font, but C64 was similar. If you could make it for the Atari/C64 it would be great. There are still many people loving these computers and developing new games so I’m sure there would be many eager players for your game!
You must be an Atari lover :). Sounds are perfectly suited to an Atari game. The graphics too. Oh, the spiders ate me…
I had an Atari 8-bit for my whole childhood and I still miss it. I’m also a game developer and I made many games influenced by 8-bit games. I have only a few my games on my itch.io profile, but I have more on my own website. It’s so good fun to make games with 8-bit nostalgia.
That’s a nice game! I scored 306. The graphics is superb. It looks like Pacmania but it’s totally different game. I thought the path is generated randomly but I think it wraps and repeats. But still good fun!
Hey! That’s a cool game. Reminds me very old game High Rise for Apple II or Atari computers. With this physics it would be even better… Do you know that game? www.youtube.com/watch?v=XK6guJtMF_M
Wow, if this is only a tech demo, then it looks very good and it’s a perfect base to make the whole game. I also was impressed when they made PoP for C64 or Atari 8-bit, so now for MSX it’s also very exciting! And colecoVision too? Wow! Good work!
