Super Tetris 3 (スーパーテトリス3) is the third and final entry in Bullet Proof Software's Tetris trilogy, which began with the Famicom Tetris and continued with Tetris 2 + Bombliss/Super Tetris 2 + BomBliss.
This game uses SRS, but without wallkicks, as well as non-standard piece colors. Randomizer is apparently memoryless, or close to it.
The game does have lock delay, uses step reset, and has smooth fall and rotate animation, just like The New Tetris (with all of its problems with overhangs)
 Standard Tetris
This is either Endless (the standard Tetris) or Standard. Standard has 25 lines to clear to advance to the next level, and clears the screen for each level. It also gives three lives, allowing three top outs.
The Tetrominoes that are dropped onto the play field have a color, red, green, or blue, which can be changed by rotating 4 times in the same direction. Clearing a line that is one solid color erases all blocks that match the color. There are also wild blocks, which count as all colors, but are not removed by a single color clear, and smaller, grey blocks, which are never removed in a line clear. The only way to remove a grey block is to do a single color line clear with no grey blocks in it, which converts all grey blocks to the color. The game features cascade gravity after a single color line clear. Again, endless and standard are available.
The primary change is that Sparkliss lightning strikes in a cross shape instead of in the large squares of Bombliss's explosions. This means that lightning blocks only erase columns and rows, and more lines completed extends the length of the lightning instead. However, creating a box with lightning will also clear any blocks within that box. The end result is that it's harder to get good lightning strikes going, but you can potentially clear much bigger sections of block with less lightning blocks.
Familiss is a two to four-player version of Tetris with special powers:
