Challenge: [NES NTSC] Most Tetrises In A row....Level 18...

  1. 19! wowzas.

    I petition David as the thread originator, to make a leaderboard on the first comment through editing. Too much to keep on top of here :)
  2. I will see what I can gather...
  3. thanks for doing this david! looks great, and has inspired me to do the same on 18>19 leaderboard...
  4. Due to a nice steady pace for long bars, I ended up with 19 straight (I thought my previous record of 14 would not be improved). So, at 76 lines, I had 433,560 going for me. At that point, I badly misplaced a block, but recovered decently. One more misplacement later on did me in though. I topped out at 116 lines with 564,871. One of my most frustrating game over's for sure. Looking back at video, at the first misdrop, I was just starting a drought, so even without that misdrop, I would have had to burn, and my 19 straight would not have gone any further.

    On a positive note, I had an 820k earlier in the night (231 kill screen).
  5. nice work Frank! Keep at it.
  6. I got 11 yesterday (I know! it's like OMG :o ) which I am sure is my best ever for NES.
  7. I have uploaded my 19 in a row. I decided I'd show the whole game, so everyone can see both my success and ultimate failure.

  8. that was awesome to watch though! you even got double dinger in there!
  9. 19 in a row is a lot, nice game!
  10. that is fucking absurd. not only do you need the skill and commitment to get this far in a game that is truly sadistic, you also need a healthy dose of luck... which your game clearly demonstrates. a nobody off the street could have done the same with the pieces you were given. you are average at best. :)
  11. Damnit, Terry. Haven't you ever heard the expression, "You can't start the show with a showstopper." There go my hopes for Tetris Quote of the Year 2015.

    Oh...yeah. Good job, David. I guess.
  12. 23 in a row is crazy. Left well too I assume?
  13. terry ...thanks for the mild compliment. . immediately followed by lambasting my game. the way..this still doesn't make up for missing the level 19 max by one line..... :(

    p.s. bring this nobody off the streets to the next tournament so I can beat him with my eyes closed. ...
  14. thanks bdcowe...
    aaronc. yes!!..left well all day everyday..
  15. 25 IN A ROW!!

  16. Dear god well played sir! loved watching it.
  17. 25 in a row is outrageous, great job! Most I have hit on level 18 is 14 in a row.
  18. 25 in a row is insane David! Congratulations brother.... that is a mark that i doubt many can or will attempt to trump. Although I might slug 1/2 a bottle of Beam and give it a go sometimes! haha
