Game mode Achievment

Rotation system

ok you certainly know the basics, but certainly it's not sufficient if you want to become a Gm Class player.

I'm a Japanese TGM player. Although I'm not a Gm Class player, I write some articles. So there are not certainly. And I hope that you could understand my poor English...

Rotation system is based on Tetris (Sega). So there are many differences from the "World Rule" of The Tetris Company. I write about "Tetris the Grand Master". It is an origin of "Tetris The Grand Master Series".

Attension: Block means tetromino.

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. Horizonal Move
      3. Vertical Drop
    2. Check to lock a block

Rotation Rules

Block color is differece, too.

Red Yellow Cyan Purple Green Blue Orange

Please see 'cource on TGM' to the details. http://www13.plala.or.jp/TETRiS_TGM/kouza/1.htm (Japanese, but includes animation GIFs.)


On TGM, the difficulty is decided by only 4 parameters. The names are unofficial ones. And I cannot transrate them well.

Name Description
Syutugen Jikan (Appearance wait?) The frames between a last block locked to a new block appears. Is this called for 'ARE'? while this time, players can input actions for shift / IRS.
Yokotame Jikan (Shift wait?) The frames to shift. If I keep to press the left or right while the specification frames, horizonal movement is faster to 1 row per frame.
Seccyaku / Kotei Jikan (Lock wait?) The frames to lock until a block landed on. If the block's top is changed, this counter is reset to 0.
Syoukyo Jikan (Erase wait?) The animation frames to erase lines. while this time, players can input actions for shift / IRS.
