Tetris Plus (Arcade)
Tetris Plus introduced the Puzzle Mode, in which the player has to destroy blocks so that a tiny archaeologist can pass before the descending spiked ceiling of death can hit him.
Incidentally, turns out the tetriminoes don't seem to crush the ol' guy...
Early Title Screen Variants
The game's graphic banks contain tile data for earlier versions of the game's title, which include Tetris 96 and New Tetris. A graphic for the latter one is loaded in the Gameplay screen, though it covered by an extra layer which covers the "New" section and displays the "Plus" of the final name.
Alternate Copyright Information
Scattered through the object tilebank are alternate graphics for the copyright info displayed in the title screen.
