as possible upto level 20 (25 for the more experienced player).
Build up a wall leaving a line for a stick to complete a tetris

pieces to bring the stack down slightly. After level 20 or 25
go for lines keeping the board as low to the ground as possible!

too fast, keep the level as low as possible.
||Start with level 0.
Until 20 level risk and wait for only four lines. Then try to
go to the bottom and stay there as long you can. If there is a
chance to make four lines, go for it, but not if necessary. Only

the Smashing Pumpkins CD "Twilight to Starlight" The first few
songs get me into a good mood. When "Tales of a Scorcher Earth"
comes on I am on about line 370 and it gets my blood pumping and
it makes me go ballistic when I play Acid Tetris.
||The best approach
for the game is global vision - stare at the centre of the screen
and practice viewing both the shape falling and the lie of the
blocks below without moving your eyes - only then can you achieve
success at the high levels.
||Start at level 0 and
focus on getting "tetris'". After the speed gets to fast for you
survive by keeping blocks as low as possible. The sides are the
hardest to move a piece to, so places pieces there first.

yourself the best possible score.

than not enough! PULL THE WOOL OVER YOUR OWN EYES!
||Keep working at hand-eye
coordination. push yourself, but don't go over your comfort line
while playing. never give up on getting tetris'...When you think
it's going too fast to get more, move your hole to the middle
of the screen. Take doubles and triples where you can get them
at the higher levels, as they are worth much more than two or
three singles, respectively.
||Don't give up, always
try to get 100% tetris.
||Just keep one side
open for the long one, it will pay off! But keep at least one
backup plan, just in case! If you can`t get BIG points early,
the game will get too fast for you to beat the highscores. Go
for a perfect start, with only dropping four lines at a time,
then try to stay calm as long as possible.
||Don't try to keep
the stack low (contrary to what others might tell you). Keep going
for the four lines at a time if you think there is even a chance.
If you're conservative, you'll never get a monster score before
the overly fast levels. If you're greedy, you'll occasionally
get monster scores. Take your pick: never or occasionally.
||I have a three part
strategy: 1) Prior to playing I put lots of saline solution in

low by not worrying about your score. Relax and always be ready
when a string of like pieces comes along.
||I've found that trying
to beat your own high score is a lot harder than trying to eliminate
a friend's from the high score page. Oh, and a good girlfriend
rooting for you helps too. Stick around for the fast levels, that's
where the points are.

||Start around level 6 because
before that the points are insignificant, and frustration becomes
probable as the urge for four lines causes early deaths. When
the speed get ridiculously fast, I like to create a diagonal
slope on the board from upper right to lower left because of
the fact that the pieces start closer to the right side. Always
leave at least one plateau for the squares, and avoid deep chasms
when not going for four lines

keep trying to stack four lines at a time until you can, then
just stay at the bottom and try to survive. Try not to make
any mistakes that would prevent a line or you're screwed.

a life is infinitely more complicated than playing Tetris.

||One needs to learn to rotate
the pieces correctly (avoid overrotation) to place the pieces
in the faster levels. Also, when in trouble, don't push the
pieces down since the speed of placing the pieces seems to be
independent of the score.
||Try to find a balance between
keeping the stack low and getting tetrisses. As you can tell
by my score, I did not get enough tetrisses.
||Just keep saying "word up" whenever
you get a four liner, and you won't be able to stop.
||Play a lot! I recommend listenng
to the "Tearing up Space-Time" or "Simple Song" track, they
help me concentrate. Also, never use the down key when you are
above Level 12, it gets a lot faster after that. Finally, don't
try to keep the stack small, you can get some quickie 2-liners
and 3-liners if the stack is in the middlish.

||Go for Tetris (four rows) all
the time, but know your limits. Play the music you like. (I
prefer 'Continuum' because it makes me calm and consentrated.)
The more you play, the better you get! Know where to put the
next piece before pushing the down-button when you play on the
higher levels, or you'll soon get a piece in a place you didn't
want it... Start on a higher level. ( I start on level 5) It's
a good idea to keep all the columns at about the same level,
or you might suddenly be in need of a lot of yellow pieces...
||Just sit back, relax breath slowly,
and feel the vibe run through you.........
||No hard way to become good at
tetris, its no secret - just spend a couple of hours at the
game and you just keep getting better. I start at level 5 as
anything below this is anoyingly slow and makes me impatient
so I F@#$ it up! Keep practicing.
||The key to high scoring is the
correct method of preparation. Buy a Hootie and the Blowfish
album. Break it. Get your hands on an old Soul Asylum album.
Destroy it. After sufficiently unleashing your rage, you should
be in a state of near tranquility. Use this to your advantage.
Play ACiD Tetris. Score High. Then go bowling.
||I get my highest scores after
getting into arguments with my ex-girlfriend Valerie. Thanx
||It's an honor just to be nominated...
||Find out what makes you good.
If you're better calm and collected, put on "Continuum" or "I
See It Now". If you're better when you're hyped up, listen to
"Costumed" or "Tearing Up SpaceTime". Early on, go for Tetrises.
As the game speeds up, make sure you have a place to put each
block. Go for small scores, because the Tetris block comes less
often than you think it does
||Try to get bulk Tetrises early.
When the game speeds up, don't worry 'bout getting bulk lines;
just try to stay alive and get one line at a time. Also, don't
try to get a high score; you'll psyche yourself out and throw
your keyboard at the monitor. Just have fun!
||What I do, ya' see, is start
the game, then I try to get into a trance like state. That way,
I'm not actually there to screw things up. My fingers play the

it's just a game right?.....
||Don't stop to play, play 3
or 4 times to day .. or more
||Keep the lines low! Whatever
you do, don't become a stingy bastard and try and go for too
many tetris' as you progress through the levels.
||Pay attention to what comes
next and just stay calm!!
||Just keep playing. Have fun
and beat scors. Start at a high level.

no practice is neccesary, just let youself do it on instinks.

5, then keep 'er low. Oh yeah, and it helps if you're partner

||Playing the game is the only
way to get high scores. the more you play the faster and more
experienced you become and the better scores you get.
||Keep an eye on what's coming!
||All I have to say is that to
succeed at any tetris game you have to get as many tetrises/4
lines at a time as possible.
||Gettin' Jiggy WidIt!!!
||First, I put the game into
a higher level, then I start off trying to get as many tetris'

||Start On The Highest Level
First. Then just focus mentally to not build up your pieces.
||Complete concentration, no
distractions. (and psychotic fanaticism helps)
||In addition to keeping one
open column on the end, make sure you always have level ground
for squares and uneven ground for "S"-blocks. Also, forget
about the computer's music; put Rush or The Alarm or something
equally good into the CD player and listen to that instead.
||You have to be relaxed. The
start is the point of doing good in the end. So try having
a good start by clearing 4 lines continuosly.
||I can't tell you the secret
to the game, just stay on your toes!
||Just keep playing...and playing..and
||Start at Level 9. Try to keep
it low as the levels get higher. On level 16 or 17 don't
worry about getting doubles or anything. Just try to get
singles. By then they are worth a lot. Listen to the music.
Stay calm. If you can help it do not use the down button.
(I have a habit of that.) Use all your time.
||I thought i was good.. but
now I know that I have to pratice it more than i'm doing.
But that's the point: listen to the music, get four lines

as possible 4, 3 or 2) in the beginning of the game, but if
the blocks are piling up too high (more than halfway), eliminate
them, even if you have to do it one row at the time. At higher
levels, just try to survive as long as possible and keep one
eye on the next piece, trying to plan where to drop it before
it is entered in the game

||Keep cool and look ahead!!!
Sometimes you must bite the bullet and leave a gap or two.

groove, and that includes food, washroom breaks, and your

piece because it has given you one in a while, tell it.

||In the beginning try to get
as many true Tetris's (4 lines at once) as you can. Around
level eight or so, start playing your pieces horizontally
so they don't stack up so fast, and concentrate on getting
1 or 2 lines at a time.
||Lots of practice and keep the
lines real low for as long as possible.

your way up. Also, put all the pieces on one side and leave
one whole row with nothing on it and when those long yellow
pieces come, shove them down there and watch those blocks
