It seems for me that the learning curve will be slow for this game.

At least, I was happy to go after level 200, wich some Tetris in the middle, where the speed go down significantly and allow to recover from a lot of errors :)

Here is my current attempt:

  • romset: tgmj
  • dipswitches: freeze = off, service mode = off, unknown = off, unknown = off
  • name: GreatStone (GTN)
  • score: 7435

Wow...just when you think you are doing great the speed goes nuts!!! Then it slows...then goes nuts again. Wow...never played this style of Tetris before.

I doubt this will hold up long but I am happy to see I have a score higher than George, for now :)

Get those "Tetris - lines of 4" That is where the money scores are. And I think the higher your "Grade" is the more points you get per tetris.

Like if I get a tetris right at the beginning I get 700 points but somehow I got one when it was flying and got like 2k

Next slowdown seems to be unreachable... http://tetrisconcept.net/wiki/images/b/b0/Mastercurvecg4.png

And congrats for your score, rtkiii! I have hoping to beat your 7k6, but the last one is really impressive.

Holy <insert profanity>!!! So basically if you can't handle the speed @ 190 you may as well play Sudoku or something :o

I played this another two hours throughout the day yesterday and I always seem to drop around the same place...I'm not sure I can go any further. What a frustrating point :)

Anybody having trouble launching this game from GameEx? Everytime I try, MAME crashes and I go back to GameEx. If I try to load the game straight up from MAME, it crashes MAME about 80% of the time, other times it works great.

Tetris the Grand Master? Well don't consider me one! I haven't played this in years!

I'm just glad I was able to run this one on my newer hardware. It uses the ZN-2 arcade system which is PlayStation based, so I'm guessing this game did eventually get a PS1 release. But it also won't run well on slower machines.

Interesting to note how someone who doesn't get a top spot in many games has it here so far. This just might be your month, but of course I'll put a good effort in.

After a few plays and getting used to the scoring, I was happy to make it past level 200 for the first time here.
