Executive Summary

This project builds upon the Qt Tetrix example codé, adding fuctionallity and gameplay to this Tetris-like game.

Features I have added/modified: 1. Added correct Tetris-style keymaps (Z,X,C, Down Arrow, Shift, P) 2. Added hold block functionality from pressing shift. 3. Added correct level progression criteria.

Features looking to add: 1. Music over PWM channels 2. Animations when line clear and Tetrises occur. 3. Ghost Block (?)


If you have hardware, consider Small Build, Big Execuition for ideas on the final packaging.

Here is where you brag about what your project can do.

Include a YouTube demo.

Theory of Operation

Give a high level overview of the structure of your software. Are you using GStreamer? Show a diagram of the pipeline. Are you running multiple tasks? Show what they do and how they interact.
