Tengen's Tetris is essentially a straight port of Atari's arcade game, and is basically an improved revision of Tetris (Vs. System). It was pulled from shelves after a mere month due to complicated licensing disputes with Nintendo. It had a few features Nintendo's own version (released six months later) did not have, and because of that, some consider it the better Tetris game of the two.

Level Select

Pause the game and press Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, B, B to activate a level select. Pressing A increases your level, allowing you to go beyond the usual 9 levels, up to Level 17.
