Tetris DS vs. the Guideline
- TDS deviates from other compliant games in aspects like level counts, down key behavior, 20g, etc. For "follows closely", only TW would probably be eligible, as it itself defines the guidelines.
We know from the interview with Henk that the Guideline is revised annually: "We have a minimum bar that we create every year". Perhaps the ability to cancel lock delay by pressing Up or Down in the landed state was added to the Guideline between 2002 and 2006. And yes, Henk claims that TDS is guideline compatible: "So we do things like make sure we've got compatibility with the guideline, so people can migrate from mobile to the Nintendo version." --Tepples 23:44, 27 September 2006 (EDT)
