Game objectives

  • Emulator used: vba-rerecording-v21
  • Completes 25 lines at level 9heart, height 5 as fast as possible
  • Manipulates luck

This movie beats Nineko's submission by about 13.5 seconds. I mainly made it to prove the point that it could be done with 7 lineclears (6 tetrisses and a single line). It nearly gets the approximately highest possible score, but the last lineclear obviously isn't a tetris as that would take longer. I picked a 'level' where it would be possible to make the single line clear at the end with a single block.

The goals of this movie are quite similar to the Tetris DX movie. This completes 40 lines at height 5, and this 25. A difference, besides the amount of lines is the blocks underneath (it's solid at Tetris DX, and has holes at this version). There are also a few other differences, but they are pretty small. I don't know if this movie is different enough to be published (I would have never made it if it wasn't for Nineko's submission)...

Anyway, enjoy! Baxter

Baxter: I'm cancelling this run, since it's too similar to the Tetris DX movie. I never really intended to get this published, but I was pleasantly surprised by the positive feedback it got... thanks!
Baxter: Uncancelling this run in light of the site publication reform.
adelikat: Due to the positive viewer response, I am accepting this for publication to the Moons tier.
Guga: Processing...
