Authors' Notes

Tetris Attack is a cartridge video game released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in North America and Europe. It is a puzzle game in which players try to keep a rising stack of colored tiles from reaching the top of the screen.

Tetris Attack first existed as a Japanese video game called Panel de Pon (sometimes referred to as Paneru de Pon), which was released for the Nintendo Super Famicom, the Japanese equivalent of the SNES. Tetris Attack is virtually identical to Panel de Pon aside from character substitutions and some minor differences in graphics, gameplay, and game music (see Differences from Panel de Pon).

A version of Tetris Attack was also released for the Nintendo Game Boy, with grey-scale colors, a smaller on-screen play field, and slower overall speed, making it far less playable than the SNES version. Tetris Attack was made available in Japan via the Satellaview attachment to the Super Famicom, as Yoshi-no Panepon. Since Tetris Attack, there have been many updated versions of the game released for newer systems than the SNES.

It all begins at peaceful Yoshi's Island, where all is well. Until one day, Bowser and his Minions showed up and planted curses on all of Yoshi's friends, except Yoshi and Little Yoshi. They now have to Battle their friends in order to save them from the evil force. After rescuing all of his friends, Yoshi and Little Yoshi prepare to brave Mt. Wickedness, all of his friends decide to lend a hand.

Upon entering, they are greeted by Bowser's cronies (Hookbill Koopa, Naval Piranha and Kamek). They all challenge Yoshi and his Friends but are defeated by them. Yoshi and his friends now encounter Bowser at the base of the mountain. Bowser doesn't think Yoshi and his friends stand a chance of winning but challenges them anyway.

Yoshi and his friends defeat Bowser and free the island from his evilness, then peace returns to Yoshi's island as Yoshi and his friends return to their natural environments. Anytime Bowser attacks the island, Yoshi can always count on his pals.

The maximum designation of a chain in Tetris Attack is "x13". Any chain higher than a 13-chain gets zero points for each additional "link". This bug was fixed in Pokémon Puzzle League, where every link over 13 receives the same point value as that of the "x13" link. If playing in the competitive mode (in either version of the game), it is possible to make a chain that is larger than 24. From "x14" to "x24", "x?" is the on-screen representation. After this point, no symbol appears. This level of play is sometimes referred to as "chaining blanks". Outside of competitive mode, the theoretical maximum chain length is 24, since each link in the chain requires at least three tiles, there are only 72 that can fit on the screen at once, and the screen cannot be raised while a chain is occurring.


Comment by overthruster on 2006-10-18 22:29:02 <-link to the mp3 ...btw the mp3 is in mono +only 96 kbps, so the little bells part at the end is sort of messed up sounding... the rest sounds okay but the part at the end doesnt sound right, so youll have to listen to it in renoise for the original intended pure sound or whatever

Hilarious entry!! A++ for the introbeats only, hehe. Love that style.
Oh, and that 1pattern-distorted mess you made was exellent fun. And LOUD, holy shit!!

I've got friends in the norwegian noise-scene who would love this.
Cred for consistency, this was too noisy/atonal for me to bring on my mp3-player, but I enjoyed listening.

I like the beats and D&B ideas like the saw sounding effect from the vocal sample. At certain points the distortion goes on too long for my taste but thats me. There is creativity within and without the distortion though so fans of the genre should dig this tune. Gotta love the title too.

YES YES YES! I was wondering how you were going to squeeze these samples, and you just ripped it. Full on distortion, all the way nice. I'm not entirely sure what this has to do with tetris attack (which is a good game btw) but I am sure I like it.

Ah yeah, Tetris Attack really rocks! Try Pokemon Puzzle on N64 as well, same concept only more. Quite teh exellent!

I don't understand you.. You start off real well with a solid beat that could've developed rythmically and been a good solid foundation for some interesting instrumentation... but instead you mess it up tonally, rythmically and fucking with all sorts of levels... it's like a splitting headache that won't go away no matter the amount of aspirin... the best parts are the beginning (which actually sounds real nice and promising) up til when the bass kicks in, a mid-section 01:10-02:20 and the very end... *tounge in cheek* as Ive said before.. you're too fast for your own good... spend more time on your basics and drop that "fuckall" attitude you've got... cheers - all in earnest -

well i disagree with andyray, i think the intro is pretty cheesy, however when all hell breaks loose at 1:10 with the distortion, i love this part, especially the distortion on the "snares". the song is a little long/repetitive, (especially the minute or so before the bells), but overall has a good flow and is one of your best entries to date (standing behind only itsukigoshi)

Comment by andyray on 2006-10-25 11:14:55

mmm... I love cheese... but then again, not all people do ;) ... and maybe, just maybe this is a genre that do not agree with me... ;-/
