A playthrough of Nintendo’s 1989 puzzle game for the Nintendo Game Boy, Tetris.
This video shows both endings. First I play A-Type mode (endless, play until you lose game) and last until level 12. My score broke 100,000 so I got the rocket launch ending.
At 12:52, I play B-Type mode (get 25 lines on a board already partially filled) at Level 9, Height 5. Clearing 25 lines shows the space shuttle launch ending. You also can get this ending in A-Type if you clear a score of 200,000.
It really says something for Tetris when Nintendo gave it away as the pack-in title instead of Super Mario Land. It was a great move – the game is perfectly suited to the Game Boy in every way. Who would’ve though Bulletproof would’ve given Nintendo one of their all-time greatest hits?
Did anyone not love it? I got my Gameboy for Christmas when they were brand new, and Tetris had my attention way more than the other four games I got with it for the first few weeks, including Mario.
But really, what does anybody remember more about this game than its music? It’s probably just as universally recognizable as the Mario theme song – not bad for a puzzle game.
No cheats were used during the recording of this video.
