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.
Once you get to about speed 9 in you need to already know where you're dropping your next piece. You can rotate pieces on the ground a few times so try to build flat areas. Remember that zone mode can fix gaps and you don't have to have a full meter, so you can use it if you gently caress something up real bad. Stop focusing on building for a Tetris and just start clearing lines as quickly as possible. Otherwise just keep practicing, those last few stages are pretty tough.

The Zone meter is one of the best new mechanics in a Tetris game in a really long time, and I wish it was available in more modes.

I took a break from the game for a few days and went back to it and it was even better than I remembered, like it had wormed it's way further into my brain. It's really good.

Yeah it's definitely way less fun than simply no longer being able to play because game speed becomes faster than controller response. I hate that they gave the player more input and control.

I haven't, I've just played a lot of NES Tetris and I like the mechanics changes.

there are far better ways to give more control to the player than let them move and rotate the piece jnfinitely

I dont mean the game should start at like tetris grandmaster 20 gravity or somethingg. And the weirdly slow lock delay before the piece sets affects me mostly at the slower speeds when I think i piece should be in place but the I bump it. The sponny spins are whatever it was like that in tetris ds too and i liked that a lot.

in modern games typically its either unlimited or the limit is very generous.

Okay, I do see what you mean about the lock delay. I was conflating it with being able to delay by rotating blocks on the ground. That can be annoying.

The board does a little dip when the piece locks and that helps me get the tempo

I spin blocks for an eternity once they hit the ground and they still end up hosed because I am flaming garbage at Tetris.


Doing the T spins is satisfying as hell tho

it is very generous. the lock delay on hard mode feels quite a bit shorter tho. but you can still rotate in place for quite awhile
