Tetris 2 is the made-by-Nintendo sequel to the made-by-Nintendo rendition of the classic game. Tetris 2 was...not so classic, although it wasn't for lack of trying.

CHR Test

In all versions, Game Genie code GAUKLVZE lets you access a CHR Test by pressing Reset.

Music Test

...Wait, "Tetris 3"?!

In all versions, Game Genie code IAUKLVZE lets you access a Music Test by pressing Reset. Oddly, it refers to the game as "Tetris 3".

Unused Graphics

Hmmm...
To do:
Rip the rest.

A stone tablet with a snake, similar to those which are used for CPU difficulty levels in both versions.

What appear to be the viruses from Dr. Mario.

  • Part of the title screen of the Japanese version is obscured by a black box at the bottom, but its CHR data is still present in the CHR ROM.
  • International versions contain part of the Japanese title screen.

Unused Music

Hmmm...
To do:
Rip the music.

There is a song present in the ROM that is not present in the Game Boy version. It sounds as if it were meant as a cutscene theme, but none of the cutscenes play it.

There is also an unused fanfare, which sounds like it might have played when the final level in Normal mode was completed, but it plays the normal jingle instead.

Regional Differences

The Japanese version has a very different, well-animated title screen. It is completely static in the international versions.
