OK, I tried for 4 hours and got nowhere near to the required score in the required time. Any help would save my controller from interfacing with my TV.

Yup, that achievement is rediculous. I'll be stuck at 975 in this game forever, because even if I tried nonstop to get this achievement for the next year, I doubt I'd ever get it!

Not impossible but it was very frustrating. I believe it took me roughly 70 tries to get. The key is to keep doing nothing but tetris' as fast as you can. Back to back to back and so on. Eventually you'll get it.

This is my last achievement and I have treid so many times and I cant do it. I can get within a couple thousand but that is it. I figured there is no real trick to it. I just have to keep playing it over and over until I catch a luckybreak.

Could you try to get speedster and old school in tetris splash? I want a gauge on your skill. Presonally, I found those two easy and if you think they are easy also, I will know this is actually hard to get.

try adjusting the settings so there are already two fill lines when you start the game and bang out a t spin or two (it really depends on where the spaces are) this should give a quick 2000 points right off the bat then from here just do tetrises.

If this helps anyone get closer or actually achieve score gold please let me know. I am curious if this will help others. thanks

SCORE MODE GOLD IN 1:16

Insanity. Helpfuly though.

I just got it, try to do nothing but tetrises, but you gotta be quick with your pieces. I had 4 seconds left and got it on a 2-liner. Try to have 20000 by 3:00 - 3:30.

Hehe, I hate the fact that the T-spin is equal to a Tetris, and I hate the fact that you have to make "errors" (i.e. missing blocks) in order to accomplish it. I feel it goes against the whole aesthetic that helped to make the original such a definitie classic.

I know the game kinda needs an update, but I felt that the silver and gold blocks (I think they were introduced in the N64 version) were a much better inclusion, and I'm sad they got rid of them .

So I refuse to play in the style shown in the video. However, I acknowledge and admire the incredible skill of the people who can pull it off at that speed. I also acknowledge that the techniques they use may be more skillful (i.e. less dependent on luck) as you don't have to wait for "longs" to score, and there's kind of a "rightful" place to every piece. It's just that I have an intense disliking for the aesthetics of such play.

Generally speaking with score mode gold, I don't know why people find it so hard. You don't need Tetrises all the way through at all. You just have to play fast, and chain a few back 2 backs here and there. I got 4:07 on my first go, and beat it on my second, and when it comes to multiplayer (which is effectively the same thing - build and score fast and consistently), I'm only slightly above average.

If you don't/haven't played much Tetris, or aren't used to switching pieces, then sure, it's very hard, but generally if you just work on your speed and consistency bit by bit (look at some of the monthly top scores for tips - not the ones using insanely fast T-spin tactics, just the regular ones with fairly consistent Tetrises), you'll soon be able to do this at least 1/10 times.

"Wipes two years of dust off"

Ok so i have this chevo left. I watched all the videos on people doing it, but.... my brain isnt wired to these dumb t-spins. Tetris is about tetris's and i have done those for years.

I understand s-t stacking , but i cant do more then 2 back to back before my brains goes back to correcting and doing tetris's. plus i cant keep looking at a diagram and concentrate on the game at the same time

If anyone has an explanation on how to do this i would love to hear it. If you think its just fast play with non-stop back to back tetris's then i can practice that and i could do it (maybe).

the best i have been able to do with tetris in 4min is like 15k, i did 17k with t-spins.

thanks

Update:

So i can get to about 22600/25000 with around 14 tetris's. I think i need 16 + misc to get it.

If there is anyone who has gotten this chevo with only back to back tetris's and no t-spins please help me, i dont think i can play any faster.

thanks,

UPDATE


Got it finally, what a pain..... you need 17 tetris and on top of that you need to play fast and slam the pieces down quick. Did it in 3:55 or so. If you can do it with t-spins i suggest doing it that way. I have seen it done in like 1:08.

Game is done.....................

It is possible to do without Tspins. I got it in 357 with 16 straight tetrises and finished with several single and double lines. I had 70 total lines

I gave up on this last achievement for a while now but I think it's time to get back on it and give it another go.

The achievement is a PAIN! I finally got it yesterday with 26,000 in 3:46. 17 tetris' and 15 back to back. The game has to be perfect and you can't have any faults. If you get the right pieces at the right time you will get it

This took a while to get done. 25.000 points hit at 3.55. Just did back-to-back Tetrises, I tried to do the T-spin method too, but I sucked at it. If you are going for this and your game is just getting weaker and weaker every try, it would be better to just stop and try the next day. I spend like 6 hours one day going for it, I barely could break 20.000 in the last hour, but next time I tried a couple days after, I got it done in 30 minutes.

I will say this, I suck at T-spins, so I tried the "only tetris" method, and i was just too slow.. I watched a few youtube videos on tspinning, and tried perfecting it.. after about 2 hours, I had the perfect setup and I got it with just over 28,000 only doing tspins and a random 1-2 lines at the end.
