Does anyone know how the random garbage is determined in mode B? --Lardarse 00:30, 14 November 2006 (EST)

I'm fairly sure it's populated completely randomly on a tile by tile basis up to the height selected, but can't find a source right now - Taratang

Tetromino randomizer?

How does the Tetromino randomizer work? Esachs 20:59, 5 March 2007 (EST)

The randomizer in this game appears to behave the same way as a standard memoryless randomizer. To what detail do you want to know? Do you want a formula that generates a piece sequence with the same statistics (try nextPiece = (rand() & 0x7FFF) * 7 / 32768;), or do you want a formula that generates the exact piece sequence that the game makes (a la Sega Tetris from 1988)? --Tepples 22:54, 5 March 2007 (EST)

Thanks, that's all I needed. Esachs 19:04, 6 March 2007 (EST)

Game Breaking Glitch

I found by luck a game breaking glitch in this game. I performed it again to confirm that it can be duplicated. In order to perform it, you set your game to Type B, you select Level 9 & High 5, and then you play through the level. When you are about to make the last line vanish, you set your piece, and just after it locks, you press start to pause the game. If performed correctly, the game will pause, but freeze for a moment. Then you will see the dancers without the music and without the background they appear in. The game won't respond to any button from that point on. The screen won't proceed neither to the missile scene, nor the score calculating screen. You have to reset the game.Gomess 512 18:30, 12 April 2015 (PDT)

Ending Scenes

There are 9 ending scenes in this game. On Type B, there are 6 ending scenes. The first one appears after beating Level 9 & High 0, the second one, after beating Level 9 & High 1, etc, up to Level 9 & High 5. On Type A, there are 3 ending scenes. All of them appear after you lose. The first one appears, if you accomplish to gather 100.000 points. The second one requires 150.000 points. The third one, requires 200.000 points. Through youtube, I saw that there isn't a fourth ending, no matter how much points you gather. I didn't check if these endings appear in the hard version of the game - the version with the heart icon. Gomess 512 18:39, 12 April 2015 (PDT)
