“Stairs Sweep” is a falling block puzzle game, something like “Pac-Attack”.
You drop down formations of boxed and enemies onto a playfield. Boxes lined up horizontally can be deleted. Enemies can not but beaten by a ball. A ball appears periodically. The level is higher, the period is longer.
Beating enemies will cause the meter to fill up. Once the meter is full, a star will appear that clears enemies in 7 rows below it. You can cancel the star effect and obtain a bonus point by holding the rotation button.
Because of the screen rotation, you must hold your Arduboy™ in a strange way like the below picture.
- Left Right: Move
- Down: Drop fast
- Up: Rotate
- B button: Rotate, choose
- A button: Open the menu
If you’d like to rotate the screen in the opposite direction, enable
FLIP_SCREEN compile switch in “common.h” and build the project.
For special devices like Tetris® MicroCard, it may be suitable to disable
ROTATE_DPAD compile switch. I’m not sure.
