This was the #6 game with most open tickets on the site (20), I just solved every one of them, ended up revising the code for the whole set. Hope everything works fine now.

Some achievement ideas, some might not be feasible but i figure i'll try throwing them out anyways

-perform a T-spin double (might not be possible due to the game not explicitly checking for T-spins) (name: Super Rotation)
-Finish a game of 40 lines with only tetrises (possible name: decatetris)
-Win a round (or set) against the Easy CPU opponent without getting any tetrises (name: Tetrisless)
-clear 1000/2500 lines on a file (names: Line Clearer and Line Destroyer)
-Pass over 1500/2000 power on a file (the counter might go higher but I've not ever surpassed 2300 myself i think) (names: I Have The Power and Unlimited Power)
-Hold a piece in the air for 30 seconds (name: Infinite Loop)
-Stay in the top 4 rows of the screen for a minute without failing (or if this isn't easily possible, perhaps an achievement for making 10 lines in the top 4 rows in a single game) (Keeping your Cool)
-Go from being in the top 4 rows all the way down to the bottom 4 rows (Recovery Master)
-Starting at level 9, get at least 200,000 points in Marathon before background change (at 100 lines) (name: Points Hoarder)
-Clear 5/10/15 levels in Marathon with the "next piece" display off (could also have a separate leaderboard possibly?) (names: Blind Fumbling, Blind Playthrough, and Blind Conquering)
-finish 40 lines with next piece display off in under 3 minutes (name: Blind Speedrun)
-beat the easy CPU with next piece display off (name: Playing With a Handicap)
-Clear 40 lines in a VS. CPU round (name: 40 Lines: VS. Edition)
-Get an All Clear in Marathon (Perfect Clear!)

Not so serious ideas:

-Perform the secret grade grandmaster build partially, possibly up to the opposite wall or just a bit past it. (in case you're not aware of the general build:
(name: Not Quite a Grandmaster)
-listen to the songs in the song select screen for a little bit (name: Gameboy is the new iPod)
-view all 3 demos and screensavers (name: Wasting Time)
-Hoard I pieces in the bottom 4 blocks, possibly clear a tetris comprised entirely of I blocks (example:
). Only downside is it pretty much requires an I piece to start the build (name: Tetris Deluxe)


-Marathon score (single sitting possibly, the game has a save feature so you could possibly get the maximum 10 million in a handful of sittings)
-Ultra score (9 speed)
-Ultra Line Clear amount (9 speed)
-40 Lines time (9 speed, one for each height)
-Possibly time-based leaderboards for the VS. CPU difficulties?
-Possibly a leaderboard for amount of Tetrises in a Marathon game (a T-spin leaderboard could also be fun)

I put a lot of thought into making different ideas for achievements for this. All the tetris games currently have very basic sets (get to X level, get X amount of points overall, etc), but I feel that this game could stand to possibly have some more complex, challenging, and overall interesting achievements, especially since it's a lot more lenient and easy to control than the other titles (due to lock time and fast DAS).

Coded all cheevos suggested by , they're currently in unofficial. Only exception is "Super Rotation", which is done, but I have to wait for a technical improvement on RA's side to upload it.

Tried to contact yesterday to ask if he wanted to do the badges. I haven't got an answer yet, but if anyone wants to do them, please contact me or PKstarship.

Well... I ended up forgetting to officially propose a revision before doing these cheevos, so I'm proposing it now to promote these to the core set.

Neat! New achievements for a Tetris game is always fun :D

I might be able to do some of the badges if you would like?

Oh, that's awesome! I'm very happy if you're willing to do it.

Please, sir, go ahead!

And thank you!
