A beta version of "Stécker vum Himmel", a Tetris-clone powered by the bell0bytes game engine, was just released.

Download and Configuration

A Windows installer is available here.

Resolution

The current build should work with every screen resolution, the game was designed to look best on a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080, however.

Gamepad

To enable gamepad support, set the apprioate flag in the preference file to "true". This file can be found in your "My Documents" folder, under "bell0bytes/SvH/Settings/".


Gameplay Features

The Oracle

As long as the oracle is active, the landing position (if left alone) of the currently active Tetronimo is displayed on the board.

Shift / Switch

An unwanted Tetronimo can be switched for the "next" Tetronimo. This can't be done twice in a row though.
