Puyo Puyo Tsuu (Genesis)
|Puyo Puyo Tsuu|
The second game in the Puyo Puyo series. Its addition of the rather simple offset rule pretty much changed the way we play the game, and is still affecting us today...
On the main menu, move to the Options item (farthest right) and hold C on Controller 2 until the Options screen shows up. An extra "BATTLE MODE" option will appear in the I/O Test menu, which can be set to either Sensyu or Point.
There is an additional screen of options ("MODE SELECT"), however the game does not provide a way to enter it. You can, however, force yourself in by accessing the option after the last option in the list, and you can have the game let you scroll to that invisible option with code 2833:01. The yellow puyo cursor will move to the right of I/O Test when that option is selected.
Some of the options appear to no longer do anything or are reset when leaving the options screen.
Explore the options, including Battle Mode. See arcade page for reference.
There are several unused voice clips, music, and many sound effects found in the sound test. Most of the music would be used in later versions of the game like Super Puyo Puyo Tsu. Most of the voice clips and sound effects, however, are removed from later versions entirely.
- 02 - Victory of Puyopuyo, the "game complete" theme of the original Puyo Puyo.
- 07 - Used in later versions as the normal ending music; it is also shorter than later versions.
- 0E - Used in later versions as the secret ending music.

Identify these. They may be leftovers from MUSHA (assuming the sound data is compatible; that driver appears to be completely different from this) and Puyo Puyo; 68 is most likely new to this game. (This is a good opportunity to go back through my disassembly and see just which codes are used...)

Transcribe the disassembled routine.
According to the routine that handles color bonus scoring, a sixth color is coded in the game, not unlike what the original had, but is not picked by the randomizer due to a hard cap. It appears as a green Puyo, but will not connect to normal green Puyo.
