|Type of game||Tetris Attack Clone|
Crack-Attack is a clone of the SNES game Tetris Attack. It is available under the GPL. Daniel Nelson wrote it for Win32 and Linux. Richard 'toast' Russo has ported it to KOS/dreamcast as part of an independent study in hardware and software for the Dreamcast.
There are some outstanding issues, but its playable.
- I can't get the textures to work, so I disabled them all, this is done via #ifdefs, so its reasonably easy to compile it with support for textures and see how ugly it becomes.
- Sometimes, while playing, the display goes blank; I don't know why that happens, but hitting B twice should fix that.
- When garbage is becoming blocks, there is a vertical line that shouldn't be there; this is ugly, but not a big problem.
- After the game ends, some ugly stuff comes up, and the game stops being responsive; I think this is due to the gl reinitialization by hitting the B button.
- Theres no network support; there was gonna be, but my plans to make a network adapter didn't work out so well.
- Also, in ASCII gfx mode, there needs to be some sort of redraw limiting, so it doesn't look as ugly.
- D-pad: move the swapper
- A button: swap the blocks in the swapper
- B button: switch between ASCII and GL graphic modes
- Y button: speed up the advancing blocks
- Start button: pause, get past prompts
