Curious coincedence, the definition of “Tetrical”

December 13th, 2007 4 comments

When I named the game Tetrical, I didn’t know that it was actually a real word. I was simply mashing together “Tetra”, a prefix meaning four, with the name of my other game, “Cubical“. While searching for sites that have linked to my game, I came across the existing definition of the word Tetrical:

Tetrical: Forward; perverse; harsh; sour; rugged.

From the comments I see from most people that play the game, I feel like they might agree with that definition more.

How to integrate the Kongregate AS3 API into your game at runtime

December 6th, 2007 6 comments

Kongregate as finally released an AS3 version of their API. There are two methods to integrate the API with your game. The first method is to download a component and compile it into your game. The second method is to load the API at runtime.

As easy as it is to integrate with the Kongregate API through their component, I prefer to do as much as I can through ActionScript without using the Flash IDE. Also, if you are a game developer that posts your game to multiple portals with their own APIs, you may want to only include the API for each domain as needed.

Tetrical Version 1.0.0 Released

November 25th, 2007 Comments off

The first version of Tetrical has been released. Tetrical runs on the same engine as Cubical, but is a more challenging game. Instead of regular shaped boxes of polycubes, Tetrical has polycubes composed of all combinations of four cubes in three dimensions. This makes Tetrical a direct analog to Tetris in three dimensions.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)
