Work in Progress

Modern Tetris (WIP)


UxoZii 2019-03-07 11:10

Hello guys, it's been a while, I decided to start coding on NX :p
Since tetris is my favorite game of all time, I decided to re-create it here but with modern rules (which i wasn't able to do on classic lowres)

Modern rules, that means:
- SRS ! (Super Rotation System, you can squeeze pieces into unreachable places in classic tetris, that means you can do t-spins triples for example)
- The bag system (pieces aren't completly random, no more waiting decades for the long piece)
- Holding a piece
- ...

Still work in progress, it's perfectly playable but the score and a menu are missing

Left pad :
LEFT - go left
RIGHT - go right
DOWN - softdrop

Right pad :
LEFT - counterclockwise rotation
RIGHT - clockwise rotation
UP - hold
DOWN - harddrop

But I think you should try to squeeze the controls into one gamepad. On mobile it works ok, but if you use a keyboard or a real gamepad it's complicated. Maybe remove harddrop and put "hold" on the first gamepad?

And here some info how to make screenshots:

What I think I'm going to do is make controls for each device, before playing, the game will ask you what are you using to play, and will change the controls. Because I really don't want to get rid of the harddrop function by squeezing everything into one gamepad. Mobile will have the current controls, for pc i'll make controls similar to most tetris games on pc, and the real gamepad will have the controls you just mentioned, being the only one not being able to harddrop.

Also I'm having a hard time with the screenshot, it doesn't work on mobile for me, when I save it I can't add it to the post because it's not a png file.

Hm, do you have iCloud disabled? If you have to save the screenshot to your photos, maybe they are converted to jpeg, I didn’t think about it :/ Something else to work on...

Wow really good

Thanks :)

I updated the website, now it should be possible to upload jpeg images (if they have the correct size). Actually screenshots are now required to upload a program. I'll try it too now...

Timo 2019-03-08 15:28

No, I broke it :/ More work to do!

Timo 2019-03-08 15:42

Now it seems to work :) you can choose images saved in “Photos”.

Timo 2019-03-08 15:48 (Edited)

Don’t want to disable my iCloud now... If you can select the source code file, then can’t you select image files from the NX folder the same way? (You’ll have to create program icons in the app before)

UxoZii 2019-03-08 15:54

Yup it works ! :D

To upload a source code file i'm using an external program called "Documents"
I click the share button and there's an option to "import with <<Documents>>", and it saves a .nx file that I can share. But I can't select the image file with this program, I simply save it to my photos.

Timo 2019-03-08 15:59

Well I definitely need an option in the app to post programs easily, if Apple allows... (there’s no rule about UPloading code)

UxoZii 2019-03-08 16:12

That would be great!

Nice! But proves were never random. It is always a shuffled set of every piece and then another shuffled piece.
