A modern version of Damian Yerrick's Tetanus on Drugs (TM). I'm currently updating it to support Allegro 5 and modern operating systems. On hold. Trying to determine how I want to redo the GUI.

What is this?

Fallarium is an effort to port Damian Yerrick's Tetanus On Drugs(TM) to Allegro 5 and allow it to run on modern computers. TOD is a Tetris-like game with added visual effects commonly associated with hallucinogens.


I played a lot of Tetanus on Drugs(TM) when I was younger, mainly the GBA port. I recently rediscovered my love for it and want to make it available to users of modern computers and those without GBA flashcarts. The original version of the game (non-GBA) was written over 10 years ago for computers much less powerful. After getting the game to compile with all the new Allegro 5 features, etc. I want to begin turning it into a more visually appetizing game.

How do I use it?

You can't yet. It doesn't compile. I'm not done updating the Allegro 4 (and in some cases Allegro 3) functions and such to Allegro 5. A lot changed between A4 and A5 so there's a lot to do.


  • Update A4 functions and constructs to A5.
  • Replace A4 GUI with something more modern that works with A5.
  • Bring in gameplay elements from LOCKJAW: The Overdose (GBA version of TOD)
  • Update graphics, effects, sound, etc.
  • Take advantage of modern 3D hardware.

What are the requirements?

Literally any computer running GNU/Linux, Windows, or even Mac OS X that was made in the last fifteen years.

For future proofing, though, make sure you've got a graphics card that supports OpenGL 2.0.

Where/How can I use this?

The program is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3.

If for some reason, you have yet to memorize the GPL, take your lawyer out for a nice lunch and see LICENSE for more details.

How can I help?
