It's wild how much the variable speed through the level (instead of just constantly ramping up) changes the feel of Tetris so much. It's great to just barely survive a high-speed part and then have a slow section of the song to catch your breath and clean up your board.

Yeah itís such a good feeling to get out of a rush and watch your gently caress ups slowly melt away

It's really loving good. I appreciate that they've lowered the scoring requirements a bit from the demo, too. It's nice to actually be able to get above a B.

I wish I knew what the scoring reqs actually were and if they factored in time spent at all or are just pure score -- I can get an A on Journey mode stuff but no S's and I can't break B on any Explore Mode stuff

edit: also add me on PSN at mattnotgeorge please! i have like no leaderboard friends

As far as I can tell it's just score, they don't show your time at the end, but I also think level completion might give you a bonus based on time? Not sure. They might ignore time entirely to focus on setting up Tetrises and combos, but I also think time affects your Zone meter, which I still haven't triggered.

You know you gotta press L2 or R2 to trigger zone mode once you max it out right? I'd be surprised if you haven't maxed it at any point during journey mode unless it's super-dependent on combos and back-to-backs and stuff, I usually manage to max it out twice during any given set of levels

it takes 8 line clears to build a quarter of your zone meter

i just redid area 1 and SS'd it really easy by just popping the zone button whenever it was up and i could get 8+ line clears, afaik rank is tied to score not time

I've been getting better scores by activating zone like just as soon as I can get eight lines out of it, which is usually at around two clicks. There's some math involved that I don't entirely understand but you can see it here.

If you watch someone really good you'll see them activate after one click and I'm not there yet lol

It's cool cause you're like betting on how fast you can put up a bunch of lines.

the theatre mode is kinda cool to put in the background for chilling. Since you can manually activate some of the music cues you can kinda make a rhythm game of it.

Does anyone have any advice for a beginner?

I'm on the last stage of journey mode and when it goes into speed 10 I just completely fall apart. Zone only gets me so far. I feel like the pieces fall faster than I can even scroll.
