Tengen Tetris is a version of Tetris made by Atari, which pretty much follows the basic formula of stacking tetrominoes and completing lines. Even the theme music has a similar feel to the more familiar NES Tetris game by Nintendo.

This movie plays through just the final level, level 17, and clocks in at over one line per second. Notably, luck manipulation does not work the same way in this game as in other versions of Tetris, leading to quite different strategies.

Spikestuff improve the predecessor movie by 5.54 seconds.

Tengen Tetris is a version of Tetris made by Atari, which pretty much follows the basic formula of stacking tetrominoes and completing lines. One difference, however, is a Cooperative mode that allows two players to play on the same board simultaneously. The board is 12 tiles wide in this mode, rather than the usual 10 tiles.

In this run, the author controls both players and completes just the final level, level 17, as quickly as possible.
