Paying homage to the 2018 installment of the franchise.

This is lovely!

Great Game! I'm attempting to develop a Tetris like game myself.
Personally if the player had the ability to slide a piece into place instead of the Tetrominos sticking
once they make contact with something would be a definite plus. The ability to negotiate pieces to fill
holes on stacked pieces really adds to the experience for me and makes the game more forgiving.
Nonetheless great game! I really liked the visuals! And the music is top notch :)

Looks and sounds great!

I'd recommend changing the controls, though. Up to rotate feels awkward. I kept hitting X instead (where I'm thinking spin should be) and dropping pieces.

Awesome! Already addicted. The controls change, as enargy suggested, would be really good. That music can be listened to all day and helps get you in flow. Well done!

Absolutely fantastic! Going straight to my favorites. I haven't gotten the chance to play Tetris Effect for myself yet, but Eurogamer named it their Game of the Year, and if this is any indication, then it could be mine, too. The music is an excellent conversion and very relaxing, and the background visuals are super fluid and cool. I always love seeing Pico-8 demakes of big games, and you did a really good job here.

Solid Tetris clone.
I'm somewhat unclear what Zone does but I do like the effect for it.
Controls seems off, but I think I'm definitely comparing it to some more recent Tetris game I played. (Specifically I notice that I want to rotate with Z and hard drop with up)

This game is awesome. Gameplay, visuals, sound - I love it all. I showed it to my wife and she told me that I can't just throw such addictive stuff at her whenever I want. That's a complement, so you know.
I played Tetris a lot on a GameBoy so I feel that controls do not fit what I'm used to, what led to some errors during play. I also spot one bug. I completed two lines: 1 (at the very bottom) and 3, separated by not completed line 2. This led to situation where remaining blocks were floating over empty line at the bottom.
Great work!

I wasn't planning more work on this, but I had so many great comments and encouragements about it that I can't really ignore.
So that's why I've updated the control scheme:
X: Rotate
Up: Hard Drop
Z: Zone (...which makes sense)

For those of you not familiar with what Zone is, I would recommend that video to understand better:

For the issue of the floating lines, I've seen it a few times. It all comes down to the algorithm of Gravity https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetris#Gravity
I have implemented a classic one without chain reaction. Which means that floating pieces can definitely happen.

Thank you so much for all the great feedbacks I appreciate it. I believe my next game will be made with Unity
(or Game Maker, still weighing on it), so follow me on Twitter for some updates https://twitter.com/tromagon,
or see you around here for my next pico-8 game.

Awesome game! IDEA--what if both buttons rotated as usual, but a simultaneous press zoned??

P#60658 2019-01-07 16:28

Compliments first. Good job on making tetris. It's very pretty. I like the zone and the zone effect. I do wish pico8 had a 3rd button so we could rotate with it, and still get the drop, but that's the limitations of a limited system.

However, I don't like that there's no slide before pieces lock in. Also, pieces don't enter the arena oriented like they are in the preview. Either rotate the preview or reset the rotation of pieces entering the arena. It's one line of code.

But I do like floaters. That's just right.

P#60662 2019-01-07 20:50

I love this except I kept wanting for a straight [][][][] but it didn't show. Thinking maybe you should add some weighting to the randomness? How does the original do it?

P#60677 2019-01-08 09:24

I had found a bug while playing in Level 3 after my zone was depleted I lost and a console had appeared. Just wanted to let you know just in case you want to fix some bugs.

P#60747 2019-01-11 13:36

Thank you very much for all the feedbacks, I don't plan more work on it, even if it's just "one line". It's never just one line anyway ;)...

Have fun!

Thanks for this, it's lovely. Although the RNG seems weighted. I never get threw or more of the same brick in other tetris games and just had five or six of the same here. Since you don't want to work on this any more I may look under the hood and try and tinker despite having no LUA experience. I've never played the original effect but am dying to so this fills the gap very nicely, cheers!

I've been playing this a lot lately, so here's my Pico Playtime video on Tetraminis Deffect

bug report

when I cleared line 1 and line 3 at the same time, line 2 didn't fall down to the bottom as expected.

Whatever,it's a nice cart!

P#84990 2020-12-03 13:08

This music is familiar for some reason...

P#84995 2020-12-03 15:57

I love the soundtrack. has a nice retro video game style with some amazing synthwave touches!

P#89985 2021-04-04 21:16

tetris, yes

P#105476 2022-01-21 17:56

Slight problem, @tromagon. Seems to have missed removing one of the layers.

P#105485 2022-01-21 22:24

Really great demake! Trying to get to level 12 from level 1

Edit 1: I got to level 10 first try.

P#105687 2022-01-26 17:43 ( Edited 2022-01-26 18:26)

The zone is from Tetris effect.
