Android Tetris and Welltris

App Source Code Executable
tetris Tetris.zip Tetris.apk
welltris Welltris.zip Welltris.apk

Unzip somewhere and then put in Eclipse like File->Project->Android Project from Existing Code. Then build, install, and run as usual. Any trouble building and getting on your Android, let me know so I can make fixes or better instructions.

See project notes for todo list and history.


Java Tetri

Click on one of the games below to run Java program (need Java 8 JVM) written mostly by David Bagley. A few updates recently on getting the look better including a frame around field. The X Manual Pages are written for the X versions but may be useful to understanding the Java programs. You can download the jar file (preserve the extension), and then it can be run as an application by prefixing the jar file name with "java -jar ".

Applet Source Code X Manual Page Jar File
Tetris tetris.zip tetris TetrisApp.app
Tertris tertris.zip tertris TertrisApp.app
Hextris hextris.zip hextris HextrisApp.app
Welltris welltris.zip welltris WelltrisApp.app

Cookies are used for keeping track of score. The delay for loading scores is intentional because if done at initialization, javascript seems to cause certain browsers to deadlock or crash.

See project notes for todo list and history. Please let me know if I left out anything.

Notes

The background icon is not random... its was found with the help of Stephen Montgomery-Smith's polyomino search program. There are 2 sets of all the seven quadrominos in an 8 by 8 square where the holes are in an 8 queens arrangement. Except for the square quadromino, all quadrominos are in a different orientation and not touching a similar quadromino, even if tiled. Also the holes do not touch each other diagonally, if tiled. The intent is to show the worst game, where each line almost filled.
