Tetris Plus is a Tetris variant produced by Jaleco in 1995 for their Jaleco Mega System 32 arcade hardware. The game includes two single player modes, Normal Mode and Puzzle Mode, as well as a two player VS Mode which plays like a competitive version of Puzzle Mode.

On November 1st, 2019, it was re-released on the AtGames Legends Ultimate Arcade.

Normal Mode

This mode is described in the selection menu as "Regular Tetris", and plays similar to SEGA's 1988 version, with a speed curve which rises and falls.

To either side of the playfield is a pair of bars which slowly rise with the passage of time; clearing lines will fill the bars more rapidly. When the bars are completely full, the next tetromino locked will advance the player a level and empty the bars.

The amount of points awarded for line clears increases linearly from level 1 to level 10, and from then on remains constant. For a given level, n, between 1 and 10, the points awarded are as follows:

  • single: 100n points
  • double: 400n points
  • triple: 800n points
  • tetris:1600n points

The scoring for level 0 is the same as for level 1.

  • Speed levels, in frames per row:
Level Easy Normal Hard Hardest
0 50 50 50 50
1 25 20 16 16
2 20 14 10 10
3 16 8 7 6
4 20 15 16 12
5 14 8 8 8
6 8 6 5 5
7 6 4 3 2
8 16 10 8 8
9 10 6 5 5
10 8 4 3 3
11 4 3 2 2
12 12 6 8 8
13 8 4 5 5
14 6 3 3 3

  • Lock delay remains constant at 15 frames.
  • DAS has an initial delay of 10 frames, and a repeat rate of 20Hz.

Puzzle Mode

Puzzle mode involves clearing lines to get a professor to the bottom of the playing field.

The player gets a time bonus based on the clear time. The maximum bonus is 20000 points (corresponding to 10 seconds or less) with 100 points subtracted for every 1/4 second over 10 seconds.
