Original Tetris A-Type Music

Hack of Tetris DX


This simple patch changes the default A-Type music to the Korobeiniki-based A-Type song from the first Game Boy Tetris.

The song has actually been in the ROM all along, just unused. No idea why they didn’t include this as an option in the first place! This patch is based on the Game Genie codes found on The Cutting Room Floor.

Tested on both emulator (BGB, VBA-M) and real hardware. Works like a charm.

Known Bugs:

  • The preview track that plays on the main menu when selecting the song is incorrect. This is likely due to the previously-unused song not having a preview version for the menu. If someone with the required hacking expertise wants to step up and help, it would be appreciated. It is ultimately a very minor flaw, though.

Why didn't Nintendo do this before?

Reviewed By: Rodimus Primal on 14 Feb 2015

Back when this first came out, my mother was a Tetris addict. We used to play Tetris on the Gameboy and the Type A music was the only music she would play with. When we played the DX version, we were turned off by the terrible choice for the Type A music. While I owned a Gameboy Color, my mother always reverted back to her B&W Gameboy to play that version of Tetris.

This hack restores that super catchy tune so Tetris can be played in color anywhere. I can’t help but thank the author for bringing back another reason to get 150 lines and humming that theme even when playing a different game.
