Author's Description: You've mastered Tetanus, part of freepuzzlearena. But can you perform at that game even while high on LSD?
Tetanus On Drugs combines the Carbon Engine of Tetanus with a heavy dose of screen distortion. It bends, waves, spins, and zooms the playfield, making the player dizzy. It also introduces a play mode similar to Nintendo's The New Tetris; make 4x4 block squares out of pieces to earn lots of points.
A Pentium or faster processor is required; the game supports resolutions from 320x200 to 1024x768 and keyboard and joystick input for one or two players. Binaries for Windows are included, and the source compiles and runs without problem on DOS. (An older version ran on Linux, but that port is no longer maintained due to conflicts between Linux and my new computer. It may still work.) It has also been ported to Game Boy Advance.
Overall Rating: 8.6
