tetrix in Scala: day 3

Today's goal is to finish up the basic feature of Tetrix so it's playable.


A few people in the community is coming up with best practices in Scala.

tetrix in Scala: day 2

We have a failing test from yesterday, which is a cool way to end a day for a hobby project.

[info] Moving to the left the current piece should
[info] + change the blocks in the view,
[error] x as long as it doesn't hit the wall
[error]    '(0,0), (-1,17), (0,17), (1,17), (0,18)' doesn't contain in order '(0,0), (0,17), (1,17), (2,17), (1,18)' (StageSpec.scala:8)

tetrix in Scala: day 1

Yesterday, we approximated the game state using String. Let's see how we can improve this.

modeling the game

On screen there should be a 10x20 grid. I only want the current piece to be rendered in different color. We'll deal with the next piece window later. The different kinds of pieces can be represented using case objects:

sealed trait PieceKind
case object IKind extends PieceKind
case object JKind extends PieceKind
case object LKind extends PieceKind
case object OKind extends PieceKind

tetrix in Scala: day 0

Every now and then I get an urge to explore a new platform, new ways of thinking, even a new programming language. The first thing I try to implement is always the same: a clone of the famous falling block game. I've implemented them in I think eight languages, Palm V that I borrowed, and on Android. Probably the first Scala program I wrote was Tetrix too. Some had network capability so two players could play against each other, and C# one had AI that kept playing on its own.
