Tetris X is the first console Tetris game to be released on a non-Nintendo platform (not counting the Mega Drive port which didn’t have a proper license) as Alexey Pajitnov’s license with Elorg (and subsequently the console rights to Nintendo) had expired and he had gotten back the rights to Tetris, which lead to the creation of The Tetris Company. It also features a 4-player battle mode starring the playable characters from Tetris Battle Gaiden.

Drum Track

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: How to properly play drum tracks on the SPU?

The drum tracks for all of the music tracks don't play properly. However, the drum track data is not broken. It's likely the sound driver has problems managing the maximum amount of notes that can be played at one time. When converting these tracks to MIDI using a tool, you can hear these drum tracks.
