Customizable Tetris(tm) with textual interface.
yetris is a customizable Tetris(tm) clone for the terminal. It has some features found on modern adaptations and aims to please both casual players and Tetris(tm) enthusiasts.
It has full textual interface, check out these features:
- Colors and animated interface;
- Customizable gameplay, with several game mode possibilities: ghost piece, hold piece, slide left/right, invisible and custom initial level and noise (like the old B-mode).
- Customizable interface: up to 7 next pieces, toggle game borders, center screen, modify game random algorithm...
- You can change settings on in-game menus and options;
- Game profiles: settings are automatically saved and restored at startup. Multple profiles supported.
- Game statistics: cleared lines, individual and total pieces...
yetris was originally developed in C, now reprogrammed in C++ with ncurses. It runs on pretty much every terminal around here, but it's limited to POSIX systems.

|c||Holds the piece|

Makefile has lots of toggles and switches, check out
it's first lines.
To build yetris from source, you need the
ncurses developer library
libncurses5-dev (>= 5.7).
Note that this is not the one that comes by default with your distribution.
To get it, use your favorite package manager. An example on apt-based systems:
$ apt-get install ncurses-dev

In there I try to explain the source and how could you play
If you want to contribute, there's a lot we could do together! Don't hesitate to contact me, any addition is welcome.
TODO files are nice points to check out
what we could do.
Also, if you're like me and love ncurses games, with textual
interface and stuff, the
src/Inteface/* files could be of
great use. I tried to make them very flexible so you could
just insert them into a project without too much change.
