Hi,

in the Hollydays i started to play Tetris again and i would like to know if there are other "freaks" like me who play such an old game this times again ... ok many may play that new tetris for the DS but i am talking about the very first one for the GB Mono.

Only bad thing is that it seems that there are no more rockets to see ... i think i have all

I play Tetris DX, used to play it for hours on end until I got Tetris DS, but now I play it a lot less because I really miss fast drop. And in DX, there is way more ships than that.

No I still will fire that up in some form or other of that original GB title as quite frankly it's still the best and most pure and challenging form of the game. DX had that rotate up the wall bug and aggravating music, the spinoffs mostly blew or were average...that is until Tetris DS. BUT the DS title you can let a piece rot in the deck down below and move it about to place things right with rapid rotation so it takes a bit of the challenge off in a way, though alters the game enough that it's not exactly straight Tetris anymore either.

Ya know what's funny in seeing those rocket pics? The 3rd one is the soyuz capsule on top of the rocket used to boost it. But I doubt most would realize that but the 4th image is not the space shuttle persay...it's the soviet 'Buran' shuttle with it's own rocket booster. Take a look at the booster in back, the Buran used a booster with that shape, and it has the smaller engines in back which I believe were semi-positional which made it easier to land.

Yah in Tetris DX there is no real reason ever to have the game finish as long as you can hold out with thumb stamina. Depending which wall you want to climb up the piece hit that sides button. For left use B and for right use A. Mash like hell and watch it scale up the wall and see how high it can go.

For the most part I agree about with Vampire Hunter D about the various tetris versions although I must once again trumpet the virtues of Minna no Soft's Tetris advance (not to be mistaken for Tetris Worlds which with the exception of the hidden classic mode deserves to burn).

Tetris 2 on the NES is a damn fun game in my opinion as well and nesDS runs it flawlessly.

    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/
