I haven't gotten it yet either. Suppose that's why it's a secret. ::Sadface::
29 May 18:01 2015
The coding is not correct to achieve passing level 9 type-A Since you have to pass level 10 to get it.
29 Feb 7:18 2016
I unlocked the achievement "100 lines cleared" by just running the game. I use Retroarch on Raspberry Pi.
25 Jun 22:56 2016
Anyone achieve the 'Secret' achievement using Retroarch? I got the flashing screen and everything but nothing popped up. All other achievements for this game have worked fine.
26 Jun 14:03 2016
Tried the same thing in RANes on Windows and I've still not had any luck - any tips appreciated!
19 Feb 8:15 2017
I couldn't get secret to unlock either. Assuming it even is the getting the demo score thing.
19 Feb 14:48 2017
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.
