Rotation system File:25%.png

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".

Attention: Block means tetromino.

Re above section: This is one part where the usage of the word is different between Japanese and English. In Japanese, the word "block" can refer to a tetromino piece or a single grid cell; However, in English, the word "block" is used to refer to a grid cell while the word "piece" is used to refer to a tetromino piece. As this document is in English, the writer of this section proposes that we follow the English usage in this wiki.

Rotation Rules and Piece Colors File:25%.png

TGM inherits its piece colors and rotation rules from Sega's 1988 arcade version of Tetris. It expands upon Sega's rotation rules by including compensations, allowing pieces to rotate in tight spots.

Parameters File:25%.png

The speed of gameplay in TGM is basically determined by the following 4 parameters. The names given here are unofficial, as no official names are known.

Name Description
Appearance Delay (出現時間 - shutsugen jikan, ARE) 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.
Delayed Auto Shift Delay (横溜め時間 - yokotame jikan) The frames to delayed auto shift. If I keep to press the left or right while the specification frames, horizonal movement is faster to 1 row per frame.
Lock Delay (接着時間/固定時間 - setchaku jikan or kotei jikan) 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 (消去時間 - shoukyo jikan) The animation frames of line-clearing animations. during this time, the game accepts input for DAS / IRS / IHS.
