Tetris - Rosy Retrospection

Hack of Tetris

Description:

“Tetris - Rosy Retrospection” aims to combine the joyful nostalgia of playing classic GameBoy Tetris with the established comfort of modern gameplay mechanics.

This hack is published as patches in BDF and UPS format for the original game. You don’t need to apply both, just choose the format that’s more convenient for you to use.

For UPS, there is a great browser app at https://www.romhacking.net/patch/.

Rosy Retrospection includes a lot of additions and improvements. See the readme file for more detailed descriptions.

  • Implement Super Rotation System
  • Shadow piece
  • Three previews
  • Use SELECT to hold
  • 7-Bag with new pseudo-random number generator
  • “Hard drop” and saving from “Classic Harddrop” hack
  • Redesigned screen layout
  • New demos
  • Award spin clears
  • Faster “delayed auto shift”
  • Lock delay
  • Faster line clear
  • Extend the field by four invisible lines
  • New game over condition
  • Adjust difficulty
  • Higher start location
  • Fix two bugs in the original game

In addition to hard drop and saving, it includes all the other features of the “Classic Harddrop” hack:

  • No more waiting for rockets and disclaimers (START to skip)
  • Independent Highscores for ‘Heart Levels’
  • Character input recalls the last name entered
  • Pressing B at name input deletes the current character

Please contact Ospin on romhacking.net if you notice any issues.

Enjoy

Excellent Work!

Reviewed By: lsignoret on 11 Mar 2021

Just tested this out and have added it to my handheld rom collection. The implementation of all these QoL features is really professional.

I’m always grateful when I see this kind of efforts to bring vintage games to modern standards. Thank you!
