24,242.  This is my first time playing Tetris in ages (probably since the Gameboy version back in 1989).  Tetris was never my best game so I think this is the best I'm going to do.

Thanks.

 

I want to do even better, but lately I've been getting a lot of terrible rng, stupid misdrops or both, lol.

Pretty sure you will top it within the next nine days. Good luck.

Here's a tip guys. Don't start at level 0. Start at 5, 7 or 9. Tetrises are worth more at higher speeds and you can clear a bunch of lines before moving on to the next level.

I prefer starting at level 16.

[by holding A when pressing start to add 10 to the level]

I'm talking to those who aren't even hitting 70k. Level 18 speed (levels 16-18 are all the same speed) would be too fast.

 

I usually start at level 9 myself.

but still though

just sayin'...

 

plus -- even for someone not hitting 70k it's a good way to play if you want to improve quickly

when I discovered how to start at Levels 10-19

I got better fast
