Game Showcase: Rubytris

Rubytris is a very nice tetris clone. Its written in Ruby, and uses the Gosu library.

To show you my tetris skills 🙂 and what the game looks like :

Besides being tetris, Rubytris has a few things that sets it apart from the crowd. First, it has some very nice sound effects (I really like the sound when tetronimos drop. Is it weird I like a sound effect?). It also has many differently shaped tetronimos, including  the standard set.

For you programmers out there, Rubytris has its code very well documented, so get hacking 😛

Rubytris has some plans and ideas at the bottom of its README, so hopefully we can expect even more good stuff to come!

If you’d like to get the code for yourself: http://github.com/lobo-tuerto/rubytris/tree/master

Or if you use git, clone it from: git://github.com/lobo-tuerto/rubytris.git

Don’t forget that you need Gosu installed first: http://code.google.com/p/gosu (or just gem install gosu)

If you liked the game, you might want to follow the author’s blog.
