You need reach to level 11

Thank you, I won it.

Why does this game lack a Quadruple Tetris achievement? I mean, the game is all about the number 4, right?

I haven't gotten it yet either. Suppose that's why it's a secret. ::Sadface::

The coding is not correct to achieve passing level 9 type-A Since you have to pass level 10 to get it.

I unlocked the achievement "100 lines cleared" by just running the game. I use Retroarch on Raspberry Pi.

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.

Tried the same thing in RANes on Windows and I've still not had any luck - any tips appreciated!

I couldn't get secret to unlock either. Assuming it even is the getting the demo score thing.

chashodges
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!

GOT IT! Do the demo trick and then load Game A rather than Game B. Kicking myself here!

B-type very hard was a pain, almost 4 hours playing so I finally did it @_@

100 lines cleared, achievment description has spelling errors, It wouldnt be hard to add the "r" to OR. :)

28 Achievements got in a few hours, but maybe there's more to find out? ^^ BTW I got 200% complete.

Mastered!!!... Again.

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.

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.
