Yeah, I figured. Though, the starting level may have to be set at 8heart not 9heart. I started at 9heart and it leveled me up to 10heart when I cleared about 17 lines.

Can someone explain how to get the challenge of the gods achievement? Whenever I start at heart9 and get 20 lines, it changes to heart10 and I don't get the achievement. I tried it on heart8 and it levels up to heart9 and 10 lines and heart10 at 30.

The way the achievement is (currently) coded is that you must land in EXACTLY 20 lines cleared, anything different and the achievement won't trigger

Challenge achieves fixed to accept numbers greater than 20, I apologize for those that have to achieve them again as they are the hardest ones, but at least that work better now.

Speed Cheat: when you get to the main screen, press the DOWN ARROW key while pressing the START key to begin the game. You will play with levels faster by 10 levels, which means that Level 1 = Level 11, Level 2 = Level 12, and so on.

Hi all, yesterday I did type B level 9 and height 5 but the achievement didn't pop for me, do I need to do all the type B achievements to get this?

anyone else feels lag when playing this? it seems that button presses sometimes feel slow. not encountered this feeling before unless when playing with a wireless pad over BT. will try other gb games to verify.

Challenge of the Gods popped up for me immediately upon starting the game after the second demo (speed cheat on).

See my earlier post, btw respect for mastering nes tetris (not the tengen one right? i have not played that one), i also took my time in mastering that one :)

Looking forward to giving this a go. Played the hell out of it when I was a kid, and I remember hitting the 200 line mark in Type A twice. Considering how much I played, it was pretty rare. Wondering if I can pull it off again.

200 lines is not that hard if you can clean 20 lines starting from level 14. Because after starting from level 0 you'll advance a level for the first 10 levels for 10 lines each and after that -- for 20 lines each.

i did it starting level 0, and using the ra gameboy emu, does that make me good? :P

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.
