Here's some new BASTET type game that recently hit the web.



"Sure, Achewood and xkcd have joked about it, but it took the sadism of Sam Hughes to make Hatetris -- a one-off Tetris clone that spits out the statistically worst possible piece with every move -- a reality.

As it damn well would, it starts with a ton of 'S' blocks -- the bane of every Tetris champ -- but just as you learn patterns to cope with that, it throws something more unmanageable your way.

Hughes has added a replay feature which allows you to view skillful runs -- here meaning those that score over 10 cleared lines -- by other players. Hughes himself has only managed a top score of 5. My own is 3. It really is mean. "

i think it's weird how statistically the ipiece is worse on a crooked field than any other block, like o perhaps o.o but i'm sure they have a proof for that :T

Aha! That 22 is brilliant. It reminds me of the opening to my 8, but I lacked the foresight to figure out how to turn it in to a repeatable pattern. Major kudos to the fellow that pulled it off. :]

I got 8 on my own pattern when this came out. Someone put together a really brilliant 11 and linked it in the comments on his blog. I wonder if someone could pull off 12?
