EAB/Lemon Super League 2010: Round 4 - Tetris Pro



Starts: 00:01 March 21
Finishes: 23:59 April 10

Rules

Post screenshots of your scores in this thread, and write your score underneath. You can enter as many times as you like within the round's time frame. Set continues to zero.

No cheating of any kind (including score leeching) - this includes save states. No continues/passwords allowed. If you suspect a contestant of cheating then don't post it in public (anyone who does so will have their posts edited or deleted) - please PM me, Biscuit or mihcael and we will investigate it. If we find anyone guilty of cheating then they will be banned for the entire season.

Please only post your score on either the EAB or Lemon forums. If you have already played this year you have to post your score on the same forum for the whole season. If you are new, the one you post on first will be your team for the whole season. However you are welcome to discuss the compo, game etc. on the other forum if you wish.

Remember, anyone can join in at any time. Have fun and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Good fun. But a lot of luck involved because of the bonus blocks.

Attention, those who are depressed, an advice, cut the music
The bonus to flip the screen is fun !

Bah, as soon as I'm not voting anymore a Tetris game is in the Super League! That's not fair!
Think I must at least give this one a shot.

In thousand years people will still play Tetris (unless mankind is extinct).

According to the Mayans, it's 2 years of games (2012), not thousand years
So enjoy it !

That's a good reason to give our best.

I see you're using black scanlines. Did you know you can make the scanlines transparent?

Just set "scanline transparency" to 25 (meaning the lines will be 75% transparent):



And the result looks more "genuine" (thanks @Retro-Nerd for making me realize this):

I completed the game
This tetris is too easy and too wimpy/soft.
But the end (the picture) is...uh...surprising

Well, there's a "hard" mode - maybe that'll make the game faster (= more difficult)...

I can reach 9,999,999 but I stopped to 1,000,000 because it was getting boring...
The scoring is not good for our contest (imho), at least for the best players.
Just before reaching the last level, don't assemble the 4 lines requested, it's the key.
In fact, if you want to make a mega score, don't complete the game !
Ok, i know, you must be capable to survive but it's possible with a good attention.
Anyway the scoring system is idiot, a tetris (4 lines) should always give more points. In this game it's not the case. A simple square ($) provides 5 times more points than 4 lines, it's stupid because it's more difficult (and risky) to build 4 lines...
