ghextris - Hextris game for GNOME
is a Python/GNOME reimplementation of the semi-free Xhextris by
David Markley. The object of the game is basically the same as in Tetris; use
the pieces that fall down from the top of the game area to construct fully
filled lines, which will then disappear to make room for more pieces. The
twist, as first introduced by Markley, is that the pieces are composed of
hexagonal blocks, so your visualization skills will get an extra workout.
The pieces can be moved left and right with the respective arrow keys and
rotated with the up and down arrow keys. If you're satisfied with where a
piece is going, it can be dropped by pressing the space bar. Fully formed
lines will disappear from the playing field. The game will end when the pile
of pieces reaches the top of the game area.
You get 1 point for every line that you drop a piece, and 100, 200, 400 or 800
points for 1, 2, 3 or 4 simultaneously destroyed lines, respectively.
