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 (An older version ran on Linux, but that port is no longer maintained due to conflicts between Linux and my new computer.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.

  • 6It's good for a laugh, but there's not much else going for it.
  • 6It's more of a joke than a game, really. It's funny as hell, but once it wears of, you're left with a fairly average Tetris clone.
  • 10So, after all, it IS possible to make an original Tetris clone :)). God, that game has only one flaw: it gives a headache if you play it too long. Could use some better gfx - but the effects are kewl. Oh right, going back to play a little more... I MUST get past dose 7 ;).
