The only controll issue i have is that it is very easy to accidentely press the up arrow on mobile. But this is an issue with almost every game. Maybe the accelleration when pressing down could be a bit stronger? I didn't notice it at first. Still a nice tetris though.
@Doriencey fall speed is tied to your level
The exact formula for how long it takes for a piece to drop down a row, in seconds is (0.8-(level-1)*0.007)^(level-1)
That is the guideline tetris speed curve, and the level caps at 15, which at that point is roughly 5 rows per frame
I realized that scores were actually being ordered by only the last 4 digits, but I fixed the way it's ordered, and I made it so that any out-of-order high scores are reordered into their proper place as the game starts
I also added the ability to reset all high scores
Nice! Tetris is certainly a good way to get comfortable with Pico-8
That was my first cart as well: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31128
My version is intended to be closer to the NES version with the addition of hard drop on up.
I intended to make a zany P-Type but never got around to it.
@ToxZc clearly has never played Tetris before and doesnt realise that you push down to make the pieces go down faster. and that by the time you get to level 100 ou will be wishing it slowed the heck down.
this is really well made. i also love that you can replace the piece you have with a new one from the left.
@trevorade Tetris has always been one of my favorite games, I grew up with tetris words, and also that weird tetris game where you had to guide some explorer to an exit before the cieling fell down on him
I really wanted to see how well I could re-create it, and I'm very happy how it's turned out, but I'm also excited to make my own original games now that I'm more accustomed to pico-8
@someguy17 To be honest, I had no idea what a T-Spin was before researching for this game, I just added it for the sake of completion. But then I discovered that it's SUPER SATISFYING so I'm very happy to have it
And I'm glad you like the buttons, it was hard to come up with something that didn't make you accidentally hard drop everything
Great updates. Love this version. Adding the new control for hard drops and swaps is a game changer. Especially on mobile devices.
I like message for the scoring, but it can be a little distracting when it appears over the active line. Could it be offset to a less active area of the playfield? Maybe in the stack of blocks if the tower's high or empty area above if the stack is low?
Definitely the best Tetris on Pico 8! Been burning some time on it for weeks now. Just got my highest score with 561.767 points! Weirdly enough after 13 minutes I got used to the insane speed, but, as you can see by my other attempts, the 10 to 12 minute range is absolutely brutal. Great cart!
Can't state enough how this is definitely the best Tetris cart on Pico 8! Great for killing time and/or to play while watching other stuff/listening to music! You got me hooked and addicted to this, man! Finally got over the 500k hurdle, now to the 600k gauntlet!
@0xFFFF967F I've encountered the same issue a handful of times at this point and it seems to be for the same reason: saving up on a lot of lines and then doing a Tetris high up makes the cart crash. I would guess it happened about 10 times, but then again I've played hundreds of times, so it seems pretty rare as not every high up Tetris causes this.
When a piece touches the ground, a timer starts, and when that timer ends the piece locks to the floor automatically if it's currently on the floor. However, hard drop does not stop this timer, meaning the lock function calls twice, which doubles the amount of lines cleared (which is only programmed to be 0 through 4).
It's much easier for this to happen while higher up, so this might be what your thinking of. And if it is, then it's fixed.
@Steven()#6 Oh I'm completely aware it will take me ages to get even close to that score again, hahaha. I was in the zone and didn't even process I was that far in, but then again I'm mostly playing this while watching/listening to other stuff so I'm bound to zone out again at some point.
Wonderful game! Dont listen to those players that the controls are slow. Probably having a bad daw or doesn't understand how tetris works.
I got this for Miyoo Mini, however some colours are not showing up. The darker shades are not showing up. Any ideas? Would love to play more of this game
