Nintendo published the first official version of Tetris for Nintendo Entertainment System. Unlike Tetяis, this game has no 2-player mode.

Details

The Nintendo Entertainment System is specified to run at 60.0988 frames per second.

Rotation system is a right-handed Nintendo Rotation System. Lock delay, wall kick, and hard drop are not present. DAS initial delay is 16 frames, and then every 6 frames. Soft drop speed is 1/2G. ARE is 10 frames; line clear delay is an additional 20 frames.
