Have you ever played Tetris? Always afraid of what comes, want what never wait.
Although this game has been developed for 10 years, but the author has been updating the source code, recently it suddenly became popular again, causing a wave of hot discussion in foreign forums.
So how abnormal is this game? Open the demo link and you'll see.
The strongest player can only eliminate 31 lines
If you want to judge the most disgusting shape in Tetris, it must be S-shaped and Z-shaped.
So, as expected, hatetris's opening strategy is to lose s and Z so that you can't cover the whole plane. It's just obsessive-compulsive.
Although this game seems very easy, so many s are enough to drive people crazy, and the world record can only be eliminated by 31 lines.
It's a big mistake to think that it can only drop s, because although only dropping s can't cover the plane, it can eliminate rows of squares according to the rule.
There's no speed limit, but you still die fast
And there is no gravity in the game hatetris, that is to say, all the blocks will not automatically fall down, only you press?? Key, the box will drop one space, you can play as slow as you want.
As for why automatic falling is not set, the author thinks that this is not the most difficult part of the game. You see, there is no speed limit. The world record only loses 31, OK?
AI's principle of selecting the worst squares is not complicated. It is to test all possible positions of all possible shapes, see which shape causes the worst situation, and then generate the most disgusting squares.
If there is not much difference between all shapes, AI will give you priority to s.
The record of 31 lines was set in 2017 and has been kept for four years. Hatetris is so difficult that some netizens said that maybe only with the help of AI can it be broken. The game AI developed in the past 10 years is obviously not strong enough. Maybe we can create a more abnormal hatetris.
Finally, hatetris supports base2048 coding, and anyone can share their own game records in this way. The coding of world records is as follows:
If you are also a Tetris enthusiast, you might as well try to see how many lines you can eliminate, the game author himself can eliminate 5 lines oh.
