Have you ever thought Tetris was evil because it would not send you that straight "I" brick you needed in order to clear four rows at the same time? Well Tetris probably is not so evil, but Bastet certainly is. Bastet stands for "bastard tetris", and is a simple ncurses-based Tetris clone for Linux. Unlike normal Tetris(R), however, Bastet does not choose your next brick at random. Instead, it uses a special algorithm designed to choose the worst brick possible. As you can imagine, playing Bastet can be a very frustrating experience!
