Twintris - Hiscore Competition

Finally we have our next hiscore competition.

This time we are playing the Tetris based game Twintris. Some love the game, others hate it. You can't please everyone all of the time. ;)


The game is really designed for two player action, with the lines gained by one player impacting on the other, but as this is a hiscore competition we will be playing it in single player mode.

The settings for the competition are as shown in the following screenshot of the game menu:


Mode: 1/2 Player Arcade and Normal difficulty.

Good luck to everyone. I hope at least some of you have fun playing this version of Tetris.

Platform: A500 WS1.3
Emulation: WinUAE standard A500 KS1.3 512K Chip, 512K slow
Controls: Joystick or keyboard. Use mouse to navigate and select menu items. In WinUAE if using joystick emulation I found you needed to use cursor keys and right shift to navigate and select menu options.

Length of Competition: 2 months (ends Friday 27th June)
Competition Rules: Obtain the highest score using game mode stated above.

The competition is as always, get the hiscore and take a screenshot of the hiscore. Then upload your screenshot to the members gallery on the main site and then link to the image in this thread to prove your score. Or you can also attach your screenshots directly into your posts if you prefer.

Points to be won:

1st Place: | 5000 points
2nd Place: | 2000 points
3rd Place: | 500 points

2271 but I'll stop now. Tetris is making me totally nervous, and I think this one is the best I can get anyway.

The difficulty level in Twintris is definitely much higher than any other Tetris game I've played before. The speed increases at a much faster rate than any other meaning you have to make sure you have your blocks setup exactly right. Get a couple of blocks in the wrong place and its a nightmare. That and the fact it doesn't seem to distribute blocks very evenly, with you wishing for a specific one for ages and then suddenly getting 4 of them in a row.

One good thing is that the scores are kept relatively low. Some Tetris games quickly clock into the millions, so it keeps it all much closer, which is perfect for a competition. ;)

I think due to a lack of enthusiasm regarding this competition I will be closing it at the beginning of next week, and then launching the next competition. So this weekend will be the final chance you all have to get those final scores in, so hurry!
