ghextris - Hextris game for GNOME
ghextris is a Python/GNOME reimplementation of the semi-free Xhextris
by David Markley. The object of the game is basically the same as in
Tetris; use the pieces that fall down from the top of the game area to
construct fully filled lines, which will then disappear to make room
for more pieces. The twist, as first introduced by Markley, is that
the pieces are composed of hexagonal blocks, so your visualization
skills will get an extra workout.
The pieces can be moved left and right with the respective arrow keys
and rotated with the up and down arrow keys. If you’re satisfied with
where a piece is going, it can be dropped by pressing the space bar.
Fully formed lines will disappear from the playing field. The game
will end when the pile of pieces reaches the top of the game area.
You get 1 point for every line that you drop a piece, and 100, 200, 400
or 800 points for 1, 2, 3 or 4 simultaneously destroyed lines,
