Contents

[edit] Gameplay Details

An L-Spin Triple in action.
  • ARE: Yes (about 7 frames in normal modes, about 17 frames in Beginner modes, and variable in Master mode)
  • Initial actions (IRS,IHS): No
  • T-Spin detection: All twists (except for I, O, and other small pieces) are recognized
  • Combo bonus: Yes
  • Bravo bonus: Yes, called "All Clear"
  • Soft drop speed: Native * 20
  • In multi-player modes, players do not receive same sequence of pieces.

[edit] Single Player Modes

  • DS version has 10 modes that you can play by yourself.
  • Wii version has 22 modes that you can play by yourself:
    • There are 10 single player modes as in DS version.
    • There are 9 multiplayer modes with CPU opponents.
    • There are 3 Wii Balance Board modes.

[edit] Marathon

Standard marathon mode that ends when you clear 150 lines, or in the settings you can turn on endless off and play as many lines as you would like. Gravity does not reach 20G in this mode. In endless, the level only goes up to 15.

[edit] Computer Battle

A versus mode where you face off against an AI-controlled opponent.

  • There are 5 levels in DS version instead of 15 levels. In Wii version there are 15 levels as in original Tetris Party.
  • Level 5 of DS version is stronger than original TP's level 15.
  • "Penalty" option allows you to select where garbages appear from. If "Slide" is selected, garbages will appear on the same row that the line(s) were cleared on. The position of hole is still random though.
  • "Map" option has added, just like TOJ and Tet. Fr.. When turned on, pattern of blocks will appear in the playfield. However, you can't select which map will appear, and unlike TOJ and Tet. Fr., you can't select the type of map(T-Spin, Combo, etc).
  • The in-game description says "Try to beat the computer in the shortest time possible", but the best time is not recorded.

[edit] Field Climber

Help a small man (the climber) to climb your tower of tetriminos to the goal line (or keep climbing when Everest is on).

[edit] Shadow

Fill in a design in the matrix using standard and non standard tetrimino's shapes include video game characters and fruit. You can create your own puzzles in this mode. Up to 5 levels (20 in Wii version) can be saved.

[edit] Stage Racer

Guide a tetrimino through a course rotating it and try to reach the goal at the bottom as fast as you can. If "Abyss" option is enabled, the game continues until the tetrimino pushed out from visible portion of playfield.

[edit] Sprint

Well-known 40 lines game. Level is not selectable and fixed to 1.

[edit] Master

Just like Marathon, except the pieces fall at the fastest speed (20G). The higher the level, the shorter the lock delay, with level 15 being the hardest.

[edit] Bombliss

The player must use bomb pieces to clear nearby blocks. This time, however, only Contest mode is available.

The player goes through stages with layouts of blocks, trying to clear the entire playfield to move on to the next stage. At the start of each stage, the player has 100 points. For each piece that enters the playfield, 1 point is lost. If the player runs out of points, the game ends. Unlike previous Bombliss games such as Tetris Blast, there is no way to get points back; 1 point is still lost when a large bomb is created, and no points are awarded for large number of line clears.

You can create your own levels in this mode. A limited number of levels can be saved (5 levels in the DS version and 20 in the Wii version).

[edit] Beginner's Marathon

Marathon mode with small playfield and small and simple pieces. The game ends after 150 lines (or until you die when endless option is on). 2 types of pieces can be selected. When "EASY" is used, only 4 pieces (I2, I3, L3, O) will appear. When "NORMAL" is used, 6 pieces (all easy pieces + I and T) will appear. Gravity reaches 10G in this mode.

[edit] All Clear Sprint

Try to clear the entire field (called All Clear) 20 times in shortest time possible. Level is not selectable and fixed to 1. You can't select the type of pieces.(EASY only)

[edit] Wii Balance Board Modes (Wii only)

Play tetris using only your feet on the wii balance board very similar to beginners tetris. There are three modes: Marathon, Ultra, and Computer Battle.

[edit] Local Multiplayer Modes

All of these game modes can be played against CPU(s) in Wii version (as in original Tetris Party). DS version, however, cannot do that. Even the download play option is limited.

[edit] Vs Battle

Standard battle mode. The items can be used.

[edit] Vs Field Climber

Help a small man (the climber) to get to the goal line before anyone else does.

[edit] Vs Hot Lines

Clear all green highlighted lines before your opponent(s).

[edit] Vs Shadow

Fill in a design in the matrix using standard and non standard tetrimino's. Players are ranked by accuracy rate, then completion time.

[edit] Vs Stage Racer

Guide a tetrimino through an obstacle course and get to the goal before anyone else does.

[edit] Co-op Tetris

Play together on a 20x20 matrix with another player with a shared hold piece. The game ends after 150 lines if the endless option is not used.

[edit] Dual Spaces

2 players compete to get the most spaces by enclosing an area using tetriminos. Unlike the original, Hold feature is available, which is shared between players. However, the AI opponent won't try to use this valuable feature.

[edit] Co-op vs Co-op (Wii only)

2vs2 team battle of Co-op Tetris.

[edit] Vs Sprint

Clear 40 lines before your opponent(s). The players can't affect each other unless items are turned on.

[edit] Tetris Party Premium (Japan)

Tetris Party Premium is the Japanese release of Tetris Party Deluxe. Released in August 5th 2010. However, it's not a simple Japanese translation of TPD. The biggest difference is addition of Mission mode.

[edit] General Differences

  • Mission mode is added.
  • Bombliss mode is not available by default. It is unlocked by collecting all of 2304 "Secret Minos".
  • Secret Minos are purple blocks with a yellow star printed. These blocks appear as a part of Tetromino randomly (similar to items). These blocks appear in every single player mode.
    • You can collect it by clearing lines.
    • In Shadow mode, you can also collect it by placing a piece on the correct spot.
    • In Field Climber mode, you can also collect it if the climber touches it.
    • In Stage Racer mode, you automatically receive it when you enter a new area (where the color of the walls change).
  • Categorization of single player modes are different from TPD. Instead of "Single Player Tetris" and "Beginner's Tetris", there are "Single Player Tetris" and "Variety Tetris".
    • "Single Player Tetris" has all standard Tetris modes: Marathon, Computer Battle, Sprint, Master, and (newly added) Mission.
    • "Variety Tetris" has all non-standard and beginner modes: Field Climber, Shadow, Stage Racer, Beginner's Marathon, and All Clear Sprint. There is also a option where you can check the progress of your Secret Minos collection.
  • Instead of Dual Spaces, there is VS Hot Lines in DS version Wi-Fi battle. Up to 4 players can participate.
  • Combo bonuses are called Ren, just like Tetris Online (Japan) and other Japanese Tetris games.
  • Bottom of playfield is huge rectangle box, instead of spikes.
    • Random single/double/triple line clear messages (Excellent, Fantastic, etc) are displayed here, instead of inside of the playfield.
  • In-game description of Computer Battle mode no longer says "Try to beat the computer in the shortest time possible".
  • Male and Female avatars are different from TPD. Other avatars are same.
  • No quick start ("Play Tetris!") option on title screen.
  • Locked pieces no longer flash in beginner modes.

[edit] Mission Mode

This mode is similar to Time Trial mode of Tetris DS, but missions you receive are not random. There are 5 "Sets" (difficulty levels) in all.
