One-High i take normal but Two-High unlocks in start of the mode.
18 Apr 10:14 2018
I started on 5 high and got One-High through Five-High straight away. Bugged achievements D:

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.
18 Aug 18:02 2018
So far everythings working perfect. Looks like it's in working order now.
22 Aug 11:33 2018
"I Have The Power" and "Unlimited Power" unlocked when at exceeded total lines (1,500 and 2,000 lines). The power at that time was under 1,000.

These two cheevos are working properly on RAVBA but not on RetroArch's Gambatte core. I will demote them until I can find out why is this happening.
19 Jan 18:52 2019
Most achievement don't work for me either on RetroArch/Gambatte, for example "One High" or "Game Boy is the new iPod"
25 Feb 10:30 2019
Is someone looking into why a bunch of achievements aren't working on RA/Gambatte? Love this game, and the new cheevs look amazing, so sad they don't work
7 Mar 8:11 2019
Because retroarch sucks.
7 Mar 8:43 2019
Yeah, I hate how it lets me play all my favorite retro games on all my devices - including my Switch - under a clean and unified interface. Real shit software tbh. /s
7 Mar 11:26 2019
Pretty sure the Gambatte core was changed semi-recently in a way that broke it for all achievements and it hasn't been fixed for some reason. Use Gearboy or Sameboy in the meantime.
7 Mar 11:30 2019
Blazekickn: Thanks for the tip! For Tetris DX specifically or for all games? Because I've been playing regular Tetris and Wario Land and it has worked fine :/
7 Mar 11:50 2019
unsure about GB but a lot of GBC broke for sure.
26 Nov 2:52 2019
Hey, Tetris fans I added 6 leaderboards.
26 Nov 13:09 2019
Decided to settle on just 3 LBs. One for each game mode at the highest difficulty.
26 Mar 10:09 2020
hi, sorry for my english, how to increase the power for 1500 and 2000 achievements? thank you
31 Mar 22:23 2020
Start a new file. Try to get as much tetrises as possible.Rather die with only few lines erased than continue deleting singles and doubles.
1 Apr 14:11 2020

1 Apr 15:30 2020
