Yeah, even with recent updates to Retroarch I've no had no luck despite most other issues being sorted. Must just be an awkward one!
3 Sep 8:47 2017
GOT IT! Do the demo trick and then load Game A rather than Game B. Kicking myself here!
5 Oct 2:40 2017
B-type very hard was a pain, almost 4 hours playing so I finally did it @_@
27 Oct 22:07 2017
100 lines cleared, achievment description has spelling errors, It wouldnt be hard to add the "r" to OR. :)
22 Nov 18:16 2017
That 50 pieces achievement wow....
14 May 2:47 2018
We could have Tengen Tetris (Unl) too, it would be fun :3
11 Sep 18:43 2018
That three lines, I can't get one
21 Dec 21:28 2018
28 Achievements got in a few hours, but maybe there's more to find out? ^^ BTW I got 200% complete.
4 Feb 19:34 2019
Mastered!!!... Again.
8 Feb 9:58 2019
Thanks for making those! I like that the achievements aren't too hard/grindy and that I'm not required to reach level 30 :-). Getting 200% actually seems possible.
26 Mar 3:53 2019
Mastered, never thought I'd get the Type-B levels (lvl 9 and 10 seemed hardest to me), once I switched to playing on my laptop with less input lag I could finally get those I pieces to the left edge.
4 Nov 16:11 2019
How do you start B Type on speed above 9?
12 Nov 6:05 2019
Holding A button on selection screen will increase speed value by 10.
17 Jan 17:32 2020
Mastered! The last few B-Type achievements were devilish.
25 Apr 7:55 2020
Took me dozens of tries to get the Level 16, Height 3 achievement... First tried Level 18 lol
3 May 6:53 2020
This plays really well with an arcade stick. Because it solves the problem of the game not reacting to rolling motions on the dpad. Its better to control when you get into the neutral position after each move on the dpad/stick.
9 May 8:33 2020
Mastered. I am the strongest.
6 Jun 5:27 2020
dayum, i accidentally got 37/37. seriously i'm not good at tetris. can barely survive level 19 and die after a couple of lines. my pb is only around 300k. and now i feel like i awakened my true potential. i hope so
16 Jun 10:21 2020
lol how did you accidentally work through the very challenging Type B awards :D
16 Jun 13:58 2020
IDK fam. I tried to beat easier level of B type like 9 months ago but can only pass the 9-5. then unintentionally i opened my retroarch just in early of this month (June) and it just happened, lol. It was very hard, tbh
