Replay archives

Included are four superplays:

  • Counter stop (one person) - 54m25s - This super play maxes out all 3 counters. The player also shows off by building a stair pattern at one point.
  • Power-on pattern - 12m57s - This super play optimizes score by doing mainly perfect clears for score bonuses. This optimization is only possible because the pattern is memorized. It does not however abuse the level timer to get early level increases.
  • Stairs - 7m10s - The player attempts to build a double '>' pattern.
  • Counter stop (synchro) - 28m44s - A player attempts to play both sides (1p and 2p) at once and counter stop the score counter. They fail on one side and counter stop p1.

Extended options (System 16)

  • Start level - Select a level to start on. Selectable levels are 0 through 15.
  • Game speed - Normal or boost 2, 3, 4. Boost will multiply the normal gravity speed values.
  • Skip warning - Pressing Start while this option is enabled will skip the warning screen.
  • Extend counter - When enabled, the score counter will have 7 digits, with the line counter having 4. Both the 7-digit score and 4-digit line counters would later be used in the Mega Drive Mini port of this game.
