The ''TGM'' series uses various rotation system but the primary one is the '''Arika Rotation System''' (ARS). ''TGM1'' and ''TGM2'' both use ARS. ''TGM3'' has two distinct systems used in Classic (extended ARS) and World ([[SRS]]). ''TGM ACE'' uses three systems SRS, ARS1 and ARS2.
  
I'm a Japanese TGM player. Although I'm not a Gm Class player, I write some articles.

ARS inherits its [[tetromino]] colors and rotation rules from [[Tetris (Sega)|Sega's 1988 arcade version of ''Tetris'']], and expands it by implementing [[wall kick]]s, which allow pieces to rotate in tight spots.
So there are not certainly. And I hope that you could understand my poor English...

=== Initial Rotation System ===
So there are many differences from the "World Rule" of The Tetris Company.

[[Rotate#IRS|Initial rotation system]] or IRS is a ability to rotate a piece before it appears by holding a rotate button during the appearance delay.
I write about "Tetris the Grand Master". It is an origin of "Tetris The Grand Master Series".  
 
  
Attension: ''Block'' means tetromino.

=== Delayed Auto Shift Delay ===
 +
[[DAS|Delayed auto shift delay]] (横溜め時間 ''yokotame jikan'') or DAS is the number of frames of delayed auto shift. Holding left or right for the specified amount of frames, horizontal movement will be 1G.

=== Lock Delay ===
# Check the Initial Rotation

[[Lock delay]] (接着時間/固定時間 ''setchaku jikan'' or ''kotei jikan'') is the number of frames until a piece locks down and is no longer movable. If the altitude of the piece changes, the lock delay countdown will be reset.

=== Line Clear Delay ===
Block color is differece, too.

Line clear delay (消去時間 ''shoukyo jikan'') is the animation frames of line-clearing animations. During delays, the game accepts input for DAS, IRS, and IHS.

Tetris: The Grand Master is a series of Tetris games developed by Arika.

Gameplay

Rotation system

Main article: Arika Rotation System

The TGM series uses various rotation system but the primary one is the Arika Rotation System (ARS). TGM1 and TGM2 both use ARS. TGM3 has two distinct systems used in Classic (extended ARS) and World (SRS). TGM ACE uses three systems SRS, ARS1 and ARS2.

ARS inherits its tetromino colors and rotation rules from Sega's 1988 arcade version of Tetris, and expands it by implementing wall kicks, which allow pieces to rotate in tight spots.

Initial Rotation System

Initial rotation system or IRS is a ability to rotate a piece before it appears by holding a rotate button during the appearance delay.

Delayed Auto Shift Delay

Delayed auto shift delay (横溜め時間 yokotame jikan) or DAS is the number of frames of delayed auto shift. Holding left or right for the specified amount of frames, horizontal movement will be 1G.

Lock Delay

Lock delay (接着時間/固定時間 setchaku jikan or kotei jikan) is the number of frames until a piece locks down and is no longer movable. If the altitude of the piece changes, the lock delay countdown will be reset.

Line Clear Delay

Line clear delay (消去時間 shoukyo jikan) is the animation frames of line-clearing animations. During delays, the game accepts input for DAS, IRS, and IHS.

Appearance Delay

Appearance delay (出現時間 shutsugen jikan) or ARE is the number of frames between a last block locked to a new block appears. During this delay, players can input actions for DAS charging and IRS.

Time attack

20G build

20G is when it takes one frame for the block to hit the bottom of the play field.

Synchro analysis

In a frame, actions effect in order 'Rotation -> Move -> Drop'.

If player rotates without DAS to left

  1. Rotate Block
  2. No Move
  3. Drop Block

If player rotates with DAS to left

  1. Rotate Block
  2. Move Left Block
  3. Drop Block

More advanced technics are described in http://www13.plala.or.jp/TETRiS_TGM/kouza/12.htm

Miscellaneous tips

  • 4 directional Arcade Stick limitation need

Basic block control flow

  1. Check the Initial Rotation
  2. A new block appears
  3. loop until a block locked.
    1. Check a block actions. (Actions effect following the below sequence in a frame.)
      1. Rotation
      2. Horizontal Move
