Tetris: New Century is a Tetris Guideline compatible game. Can be obtained in the Japanese PS2 game Sega Ages 2500 Series Vol.28 Tetris Collection.



A 150 line guideline marathon mode. The player has the option to choose the starting level and rows of random garbage.

The block design changes at levels 5, 9 and 13.

If the player completes the marathon mode, they will receive a message from the monkey. The message changes depending on how long it took for the player to complete the mode: more than 10 minutes, between 5 and 10 minutes, or less than 10 minutes.

40 Line

A sprint mode. The player has the option to begin with garbage.


A 3 minute timed mode.


An endless mode where the level increases every 4 lines. After the gravity reaches 20G, the lock delay becomes shorter and shorter. The level cap is 99.

The block design changes every 10 levels starting from level 10. The score multiplier is the same as the level from levels 1 to 20, but after that only increases every 10 levels:

Level Score multiplier
1-20 Same as level
21-29 20
30-39 21
40-49 22
50-59 23
60-69 24
70-79 25
80-89 26
90-99 27


A versus mode with garbage.

Gameplay Info

  • ARE: No
  • DAS: 1G
  • You can toggle the infinity. When turned off, it uses classic step reset behavior instead of modern move reset.
  • This game has "Lock delay cancel using down key" feature, like the Tetris DS. Touch the ground by using soft-drop key, then push the sort-drop key again to lock the Tetromino instantly.
  • Screen layout is similar to TGM3 and TGMA.
  • You can change the settings of buttons. You can even set to "NO ASSIGN". [1]

The game recognizes T-Spins even when they don't clear lines.

Also, the game recognises back to back, but doesn't distinguish between tetrises and t-spins. so if you get 1 t-spin double and 1 tetris, it counts as a back to back. Yes, this means ST stacking is the way to go.
