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.

  • 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

  • Lock delay
  • Faster line clear
  • Extend the field by four invisible lines
  • New game over condition

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

The best way to play the original Tetris on Game Boy!

Reviewed By: peacefighter on 19 May 2021

This hack adds many new features to the original game. It has hard drops, shows where the block will drop, shows the block order of the next blocks and press select to save a block for later. Finally I can save my high score too. I love the look of the original Tetris and have more nostalgia for the game than the DX version. This hack has made it so I will probably play this over DX. This is an amazing hack with many great new features. I highly recommend this hack.
