DescriptionSome games are both so compelling and so relatively straightforward to implement that programmers are driven to duplicate them upon first sight, if only to have a version to play at home. So it is that after his first round of Tetris, British programmer Graham Cluley was driven to hash out his own serviceable keyboard-controlled clone of the original falling-block megagame, never pausing to even confirm that his version had the same column-width as the standard version does. If it failed to take over the world, it's only because by '90, the market was already flooded with homebrew Tetris clones.

Boss keyThis little Pascal-coded diversion was so popular among the game author's classmates at Bristol Polytechnic that in order to permit them to play it in the school computer lab without interference from the teachers and tutors he implemented arguably the world's most sophisticated boss key, a faux version of the VP-Planner spreadsheet that actually accepts user input!
