Tetris DS is a Tetris clone for the Nintendo DS. Two players can play at once, using one screen and one set of keys each.

It was submitted to the NEO Coding Compo 2005.

Installation

  • tetris.nds - For emulators, loaders or WiFi.
  • tetris.ds.gba - For flashcarts.

Download and extract file.

DLDI patch it if needed (if your card does not have auto-patching) and copy it to the root directory of the card.

Note from developer:

For WiFi only, if boot from WiFi and you want to save settings, insert a gba cart which has Game code as PASS. Almost all DS homebrew has this.

User guide

Playing using drop gives more points due to the nature of the standard Tetris specifications way of calculating score. So only compare scores with same drop-method.

Controls

Start - Restart (after done playing)

Select - Restart at any time
