That's a tremendous lie.
First off, seems people are blind. The Tetris I look for looks EXACTLY EQUAL TO ATARI TETRIS FOR ARCADES. I've been shown only clone after clone of Tetris, none similar to Atari Tetris (with the only exception maybe being Tetren)

Now, teh list got updated later, in a newer post, not in the main page. I can copy and paste that data to the first post.
I dont think I cant be arsed to link to HOL, this is not my full time job, so maybe some day I make it but no promises.


Keep on searching.

I just bought an old pc cd game from 1992 for Windows 3.0/95 (perhaps this is the game but its PC edition) that resembles the picture very much. The games name is Tetris Classic apparently and by Spectrum HoloByte.

The cover resembles the original well, but not the ingame graphics :

Sorry if I jumped, but I take this thread seriously.
Have you ever seen a poor man looking for a game for so many years?
And 7 are the years of search in EAB. I've been wanting this bad mofo since I was 13 years old.

The game is DEFINITELY on Amiga, and I am almost 90% sure now, that it was an argentinian production, seeing as no one in europe or the US has found it.

I forgot to update, so:
This is month 75 of search.

It's almost May, so let's say we are entering the 76th month of search.

Current reward for game finding: 76 US dollars

A dollar a month? Come on, this is now a multi-national gamehunt. You are going to have to raise the bounty on that sucker to find him!

Also, I could make a dollar a month brushing my teeth! You need to make this worth the while! (just kiddin) I sympathise with your hunt for this, I know what its like. There are still games that I can't find for the life of me and it hurts.

Out of interest, why was it so good? I like tetris but not enough for a search of this scale.

Whatever.
I live in fucking south america so no raise.
And even if I offered 100 a month, no one will find it, I bet.
Yes, it was the best Tetris port to any system. Second place is for Gameboy Tetris and third is for Tengen Tetris on the NES.

It was so good because it was exactly like the arcade version, which is the best one.

Hi. This guy posted a piece of that program (it seems that he worked on it) on YouTube, so you might ask him for more footage. I hope that you find the relevant clips. AmericaTV El Cerebro Magico Creditos Final / [ Show youtube player ]

So, Akira. You seem, um... Very desperate to say the least.

Have you tried hypnotherapy? Perhaps if you've seen the game title and cover disk once in your life, then perhaps it'll be possible to bring the exact memories back.

... If you're open-minded.

With the bounty being offered (still?) it would probably work out easier and cheaper to pay somebody to code the game from your memories. You may even be able to shareware/sell the game and make the money back.
