Re: DeBlock (NES) - 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ Contest

Hi all!

Sharing some (initial) considerations about this game:
- Despite I don't like Tetris-like games (and other puzzles), I liked this game for now;
- I played just some hours;
- Never heard about it before... cool idea;
- Bad responses of the controls (well, many NES has it).

Some tips that I already figured out... sharing it...
- Each 10 cleared, advance 1 level;
- All clear bonus: 20k bonus if clear all the blocks. Increases 10k each level;
- How earlier you touch new blocks, higher are the points for that;
- Higher the level, higher are the bonuses (ie: combos, larger blocks) [not sure];
- If 3 blocks pass in a row, game over!;
- If a new block touch you in the same frame when it appears in the screen, game over!;
- the screen is 20x20.
- blocks colors (sizes): 1-blue, 2-yellow, 3-pink, 4-brick-blue, 5-brick-yellow, 6-brick-pink, 7-blue, 8-yellow, etc...

Strategies:
#1) go straight away focusing in clear block as fast as you can (good to keep a clean screen, however in advanced levels, you need a lot of skill to survive, and low score);
#2) focus on big squares/blocks, it's bonus is good, yet more if combo-ing. I focus on size "4-brick-blue", but I think I already cleared some "5-brick-yellow", but it's very hard;
#3) focus on All Clear Bonus, mainly after level 2. See the next block and let some blocks to pass, waiting for the right block to fit for your ACB.
Note: It's possible to use the strategy #2 mixed to #3, receiving ACB after a big sized clear.

Probably my current record will be smashed as soon as other players quick-learn the game too.

Good luck to everyone!

Thanks RevJ. Considering it's a "new" game for most of the players, and I couldn't find tips about it, I decided to share tips, no matter if it's very early and these are only "basic" tips. I hope it's useful to everyone for now.

Tip for the later levels ie 5+
Unless a block is a perfect or very easy fit, let the first one pass and while its running across the screen use that time to work out and align your next move. This is pretty much essential in level 6+

I'm doing something wrong I think, once I hit the 200k mark, it's just going too fast.

You have to go for the bonuses that's where all the points are. To do this you have to complete an entire square leaving only your initial starting piece. The higher your level, the bigger the bonus.

Re: DeBlock (NES) - 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ Contest

The bonuses go up in 10k increments starting at 20k for level 0.
However my latest game, I got 3 clears on level 7 which netted 190k each.

Tonight I decided to play to level 8 and get a clear, using save states. Weird thing is I only got 110k from a level 8 clear. (BTW this level is pretty much impossible unless you are a god)

New highscore - 1,854,360 by d3scride. No level 7 (190,000) point clears.
2million+ looks do-able provided you get a few clears on level 7. 2.5mil would be a great score.. 3 million is probably possible with an absurd amount of luck
