Tetrisphere is best described as "what Tetris would look like if it were in first-person view". It also features some really trippy visuals, and the soundtrack...oh boy.

Debug Messages

The game contains a lot of debug text, starting at offset 0xC6370 and mixing with the rest of the game's text. Here are just a few samples of them:

*** GAME CRASH CONFIRMED!!! ***

Inializing heart skull animation thing

Most of it is routine stuff, but there are some interesting gems in there. The developers were certainly not in a good mood or this was "kinda" a joke from them.

Regional Differences

Removed Track

The song Flim Flam is not present in the European version. The Brick variation which used this song now uses Extol instead, which is also the song that replaced it on the Audio menu.

Playing the song Prophetic during gameplay

Normally, if you change the music selection to Choose in the Audio menu, the game will not allow the track "Prophetic - Title" to play. However, a glitch in the European version causes the song to play if the player loops through the list by pressing D-Right after the last song. This is the only way the song can be played in-game, though the game will change the song to Azule Lux every time a new level is loaded.

This is most likely caused by the game trying to play the song Extol, as it was the last track in the US version. Since its placement was changed, the game loops the list and plays Prophetic instead.
