Teserae


Teserae was developed by The Albanian Sausage Corporation - funniest name ever?? It's a Tetris clone if you hadn't guessed and one with fantastic aesthetics: jazzy graphics, a wobbly logo, zooming backgrounds, a scroller and gorgeous music - all at 50fps!! However, it wouldn't be worth its salt if the gameplay was rubbish.

Well, it's not and, once you've got over the visual carnival, there is a fantastic and challenging game of Tetris to be had. You know what, it's a darn fine take on the genre too. I'm not a Tetris fan but I've really enjoyed this!!

  1. Got it free on an ST Format disc, and still one of my favourite takes on Tetris.

    If you can get a high score without ending up both nauseous and with a splitting headache, however, you're doing well. Not recommended for long play sessions in a darkened room whilst sat rather too close to a 50Hz CRT. Don't ask me how I know that... :D

    It's also well worth loading it up at least the one time just to start a game, pause it, and read the entire scrolltext. Or, probably closer to the true intent, read it whilst bored and watching the screen waiting for your turn whilst a far too competent sibling sets a score you're never likely to beat.

    My head! My neck! Anything but my hard disk!
