Tetris (set 1)

0.31 [Zsolt Vasvari]


- To start a game, press the ROTATE button.


- There's no second button to rotate pieces clockwise. Many ports of Tetris (notably the Gameboy version) have two rotate buttons, but the Atari versions do not. Several people have reported that they've played the Atari version on machines that allowed you to rotate the pieces both clockwise and counter-clockwise. However, the currently supported ROM sets do not have inputs for a second button, so it is definitely not an error. While there is a chance that such a version might exist, nobody has been able to provide conclusive proof of it. Tron
