StackRabbit: the AI that broke Tetris

Did you know Tetris had a kill screen? I didn’t!

Who needs hypertapping when you can build an AI that breaks NES Tetris? Greg Cannon and Christian Harris created StackRabbit to play Tetris better than any human. So much better, in fact, that it got to the Tetris kill screen. The AI is written in a variety of programming languages including C++, Python, and JavaScript and you can use a web client called TetrisTrainer to draw a board and ask the AI about the best piece placements.

BOOM! Tetris for StackRabbit!
