:Also, as someone noted in the comments on the YouTube video that's linked in the article, the lack of a hold function may be considered a hardware limitation, as there's no button that could be used to send a piece to a hold, with Select already being used for the Next on/off function, and A & B being clockwise and counterclockwise rotation respectively. Since any guideline element is a subject to hardware limitations, perhaps this version is considered as compliant as could be for the hardware.

Retro-bit rotation system

I wanted to talk about your edit of the rotation system for the retro-bit. I know there's no page for BPS rotation, as of Super Tetris 3, it's basically SRS with no kicks. If I recall correctly, my version does not have kicks, I was wondering if yours did? I know there are different versions of the rom, but as far as I know the only thing that changed was the removal of the hard drop function. In terms of it being guideline or not, I'm not sure, it's lacking a lot of things like scoring, hold, bag randomizer, etc. I would prefer to say it's closer to a classic version of Tetris with a few guideline rules.

And thanks for your contributions today, very good stuff! :) --simonlc (talk) 16:31, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
