Tetraglyph 3D

by mgeorgoulopoulos - Mini LD Entry

.About

Tetraglyph 3D is a Tetris clone for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, where you can see the blocks and background in 3D, using a pair of red-cyan glasses.
It was created as an entry to MiniLD #71: THE RETRO CHALLENGE, and the 3D feature is supposed to cover the secondary theme of MODERN TECHNOLOGY.
It ain't exactly Oculus Rift, but it's as close as genny will get!

.How to run

Load the '.bin' ROM in an emulator. It has been tested to work on regen and gens (for gens though, you need to manually set it to PAL mode).
It also has been tested on the real hardware -a European Mega Drive model 2, using an Everdrive to load the ROM.

.About the code

Please don't look at the code. It's awful.

If however you need some insight on how this monstrosity came to be, take a look at:

The controls are nice and I tested it with red/cyan glasses. It kinda works although too bright colors will make it hard to see through doubles into 3d.
