Tetris Gems is a cascade game currently in beta. It can be played at tetris.com/play-tetrisgems.
The player starts with 1 minute, the objective is to get a highscores by clearing big cascades before the time runs out. The game begins with 5 lines of garbage with gems in the stack. Clearing lines with gems activates their effect. Unlike regular Tetris, when a line is completed it doesn't clear. Instead the line splits into 10 minos which have gravity applied to them causing a cascade, where lines can clear.
Cascades end when a hole in the garbage has no minos above it. This means with a sufficiently large stack, there is always a chance that the garbage hole might end up in the column with the player's well and prematurely end the cascade.
Scoring uses regular guideline scoring, with the addition of a multiplier instead of levels, and cascade storing, 100 × lines × multiplier. The player increases the multiplier by clearing lines with orange gems.
