For System 6.x - Mac OS 9
This game works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac

A Mac-exclusive bid to create the most vexing Tetris possible. It will lie, cheat, taunt you about your play ("Nice slide!"), give you preposterously unusable pieces, and find a creative "new way to screw you" on every level. While it never saw its intended commercial publication, a leaked development copy became an underground sensation.

This version only refers to itself as Tetris by Randall Cook, but it picked up many other names as it spread: New Tetris, Obnoxious Tetris, Attitude Problem Tetris, Wise-Ass Tetris, Asshole Tetris and most famously Wesleyan Tetris after the author's university. Recently, Cook announced plans to release the source code under the name Original Supertris.

The best damn version of Tetris ever.

[2nd DL] is a copy of the original top DL above as an 800K Disk Copy 4.2 floppy image, compressed with StuffIt version 3.6 (compatible with SSW 6.x and later). Extract the .sit on your host PC and drag onto a running Mini vMac window to mount & play. Or create hard copy from the image and run on your actual classic Mac.

This game is awesome, and I don't usually like tetris variants, just straight tetris. The commentary and the random pieces it throws at you are so funny.

I have this on my SE and wanted to upload it, but I couldn't get it from my SE to my iMac. Sad
I have a USB floppy drive that only reads 1.44Mb, but my SE can only read 800ks. Crying
We always called it "Wise-Ass Tetris". Another name to add to the collection.

Didn't seem to have sounds in Basilisk, but sounds worked fine in vMac. Fantastic! I had missed this game!

Wow! You found Asshole Tetris? Way to go! Can't wait to give it a spin on Mini vMac.

From what I know, the game has some sound problems with Systems after 7.1. This worked great w/sound on my PowerBook 170 with 7.0.1.

Great game btw, it's probably up there among Tetris Max as one of my favorite Tetris clones.

Unfortunately without sounds, which was the most important part of this game:(
