Here is my first contribution to this group, a blast from the past in the files I've been extracting from my TI/Geneve hard drive.  This is a version of Tetris that I wrote back in 1989.  I was able to run it on my newly resurrected Geneve (thanks, RickyDean!) and was able to run it in MAME as well.  If I remember correctly, I tried to match the timing of the levels to the version I played on the Mac back then, which means level 9 is super-fast.

 

This was written for MDOS version 0.97R back in the day - not sure if it would work on a "modern" version without changes.

 

Have fun!

Someone complained here that there was "no good version" of Tetris for the TI-99 some time ago, so I began writing one.  It was ready for compiled XB.  Just needed polish.

 

Here's my github repo: https://github.com/u.../master/howtris

I never spent much time writing games so finding this little Teris tutorial is very informative to me.

Clever way to rotate the pieces.

Mike,

 

Just had time to check out your copy of Tetris.  Good work on the program.  And yes, it does run under MDOS 6.50 when I checked it out.

 

Also, glad to hear you got your Geneve up and running.  What was the issue?

 

Beery
