Tetris is one of the featured games on the Retro-Bit Go Retro! Portable, a NES-based handheld system, and was developed by Shiru specifically for the device.[1]

Gameplay

There is a single mode. The player may choose which level to start on, and a handicap level from 0-12 in increments of 3. The player also has the option of disabling the ghost piece.

While most of the game doesn't not follow the Tetris Guideline, the colors used for the tetrominoes do.

Pieces spawn in the 22nd, and 21st rows, and use SRS base rotations. A bug causes the S and Z pieces to sometimes spawn rotated 180°, which causes finesse to be affected.

The level increases every ten lines cleared until level 15 is reached. Higher levels have a higher gravity. If a line clear brings the total line clears for that level over ten, they are discarded, but still count towards points. Level 15 lasts 50 lines, and at that point the game ends, with a screen saying congratulations and showing your final score. Starting on higher levels does not increase the line clears required to increase the first level, unlike NES Tetris.

Scoring

Action Points
Single 50 × level
Double 150 × level
Triple 250 × level
Tetris 400 × level
Soft drop 1 per cell
Hard drop 2 per cell

Development

The game was developed exclusively for the Retro-Bit Go Retro! Portable, a device which is a clone of the NES hardware, thus technically this game could be played on a NES.[2]
