In my village every boy age four must go through 18 months of vigorous training to become Tetris champ. My training pays off!

MASTEREDFinally got around to cleaning up some of my "one cheevo left games" and this was one of them. Probably my biggest accomplishment on this site is NES+GB Tetris mastered.

200 lines is actually sadistic. The single worst and most unforgiving Tetris engine I have ever played on. And yes, I can get 100 lines at max speed, but that doesn't stop it being an unforgiving mess of an engine. Does the 200 lines achievement still count if you use the speed cheat, out of curiosity?

There is a bug on the Cleanup Master, the user Nifri, 1st at the moment, has more than 1000 lines but he hasn't unlocked yet the 200 lines cheevo. I don't even know if is it possible more than 1000 lines btw

After Tetris on NES and SNES this one was easy. Nice set.

Fickle randomizer? No DAS? No spins? No problem; mastered ^^
Going back to GB Tetris after grinding TGM2 was smooth sailing.

I really don't like being the "game too hard plz fix" guy(which is why I've restrained myself for even this long), but I am really having a rough time with Tetris Master and Line Em Up Extreme. I am just not getting anywhere near close. I'm definitely no professional Tetris player, but I really don't think I'm at all bad at it. Is there something I'm missing here that makes things easier? Some particular setup, maybe? I read about the speed cheat and starting at Level 14, but even when I was constantly pausing the game with the Quick Menu + line piece RNG manipulation, it just wasn't enough. Again, maybe there's some secret to this I'm missing, but this is really starting to just feel absurd. The requirements for these last achievements really strike me as fitting for only an Extra set, not a main one. Not to mention, considering the immense difficulty of it, the points you receive seem pitifully low. I've really given this so many attempts, but I think it's just too much to ask for. I don't know if this next suggestion is even a thing, but maybe give this set some kind of reevaluation, to make sure it's not just me sucking, I guess?

Hyruehero, I got "Tetris Master" (score of 200,000 or more) starting at Level 8. I basically made sure as many of my lines as possible were "Tetrises" (4 lines at once using the I piece). 1 "Tetris" is worth alot more points than 4 Single lines (see below), so getting more Tetrises helps rack up more points before the line count (level increases each 10 lines) takes the game speed beyond your limit.

Single = 40 points x (level + 1)
Double = 100 points x (level + 1)
Triple = 300 points x (level + 1)
Tetris = 1200 points x (level + 1)

Well, I finally did it. It took me over 7 hours total and it sucked. For anyone else who has trouble, if you're going for score, like cairojake said, go for Tetrises and start around level 8, maybe 7. It is insane how much you need to prioritize going for them. If you're going for lines, don't bother with Tetrises, start at level 0, and for both goals, abuse the life out of the RetroArch menu button to no end.

DavidLR04 28 Feb 2023 21:18

XanaduGCP 12 Apr 2023 17:44

It's taken me a year to get the final cheevo (200 lines). :D
