Highest score at Tetris?


.... I'm talking about the original game boy version of course - Game A... We've all played it at some point, but who has the highest score on tMP.com?

I'll start the bidding at something over 300,000 points and about 244 lines

*disclaimer" it was an "escape" from 4 years of "revising" for uni exams


I am also a Tetris sad geeky master!

I have a version for PC and after a while the score starts going backwards! Bizarre.

However, just tonight on a feeble attempt I managed over 375 lines starting on the highest level and with the highest level of rows that you can start with!

I challenge anyone to a game of Tetris. Even you timbloke!!

Haven't played the Game Boy version, but surely the original arcade version should be the benchmark?

I've always been a fan of Tetris. Can't remember my best score, but the game lasted well over 4 hours...

There's a good version in the arcade at www.retrochat.com. Unfortunately, my score of a million and a half (or thereabouts) was lost when they last reset the high score table.

Unlike some versions of Tetris, though, there's an ending to it. That took a good hour to play through! And the last level, you need 999 lines, so altogether I think I must have got 1200 lines or so. (Not as many as on the 4 hour game)
