nTris - Tetris for nSpire -

nTris    - Tetris for nSpire -

Hey, after i searched for Tetris and getting no results, i decided to make one.
Up to now it doesn't look nice, but it works. There is a Todo-list below.
Depending on your comments i will expand it.

Controls are mapped to the numbers and the touch or dpad:
4-left, 6-right, 2-down, 8-rotate, 5-drop

Things left to do:
- improve controls

Thank you Ndless team for making this possible!
Also i want to thank compu for making the block graphics for me and squalyl for hosting the project.

It's always nice to see new Nspire projects! There aren't many right now, so making just one is a huge addition to the Nspire. I don't have an Nspire, so I sadly can't try it out.

Wow, thanks! I'm glad you like it. I will add a score counter and levels as soon as possible, maybe within the following week.

With the screen of the nSpire at your command, you might even want to look into textured blocks like the original tetris :D

I agree it looks great, I can't wait to see it once you update the graphics with some nice greyscale!. I love to see new nspire projects.

Here is a little update for you:
- check if rotation is possible
- changed control system (you can't hold a button anymore but they react normally now)

Heya and welcome on the forums!

Nice project as well, I'M glad to see a Tetris clone for the TI-Nspire finally. It would be nice if that one took full advantage of the 15 levels grayscale screen. Also I'm glad you're using the up number (8) to rotate. :P

By the way for how long have you been coding for calculators?
In case you are wondering where I went, I am still active in the TI community, but I left Omni back in 2015 for various  reasons. I might come back one day, depending of certain circumstances, but my new online home (despite me being Omnimaga founder in 2001) is now CodeWalrus ( https://codewalr.us ). Sorry for the inconveniences.

hey, thanks!
Actually i started prgramming for calculators with this game, before i just played around with Ti-Basic but it wasn't that great.
As you might have seen on the screenshot I updated the block graphics. Compu made them for for me.
Also i updated the download!

Hello,

congrats for this great production.

would you like to get an official page at nspforge.unsads.com?

I'm a trac/svn/git provider for nspire and other calculator developers. The goals are to
* backup your project so you don't loose it if your computer crashes. I have daily backups on a remote secure ftp host.
* manage bugs and issues

I don't care if your project is not open source. private projects are possible. binary release hosting is also possible.

Don't hesitate to post a request on the trac meta project at http://nspforge.unsads.com/p/meta

HTH, squalyl
