Bintris is a tetris-like puzzle game for Emacs.
Original game concept by Juha Lainema. This Emacs version is a remake of his Win32 version.
How to run it
· Start Emacs in windowed mode
· M-x load-file, bintris.el (or (load-file "bintris.el"))
· M-x bintris
How to play
You need to understand the binary numeral system to be able to play at all.
Use left & right arrows on your keyboard to move the bits. Press spacebar to drop them.
A single row is composed of black (zero) and white (one) blocks. Each full row forms up a binary number. Say, if you have a row with
W W B
it's interpreted as 110 (binary) or 6 (decimal).
When a full row matches the "target number", it will get collapsed. The goal of the game is to collapse as many rows as possible.
Warning: If your Emacs background is customized to black, you won't see the black pieces against the background. I'll fix this in future versions. A work-around that works for me at least is to run Emacs without init scripts, like so: emacs --no-init-file
