Tetris is arguably the most universal video game on the market, played by professional gamers as well as occasionally by others. But for players more interested in points, here’s a new technique that might interest you.
With its concept as simple as it is easy to learn, Tetris is a universal game (have fun counting the number of machines it is hosted on and the number of variations that it has been) but one that always attracts the most motivated players . Every new competition and record is therefore an opportunity to push the boundaries of the game. However, during official competitions, you should know that only the NES controller is authorized. And it’s not really easy to learn, especially when you have to be very responsive. The players therefore double their imagination to develop new playing techniques: including rolling and hypertyping, which consist of sliding their fingers very quickly and repeatedly on the buttons and stuffing the buttons to the right and left of the joystick.
A revolutionary new technology?
However, if you are looking for maximum performance, the examples given are now out of date. The latest technique, which will be used for the first time in the competition in mid-April, is … tapping the back of the controller. As the videographer aGameScout says, this technique can be very precise and, above all, can perform around twenty movements per second: it’s not bad, if not to say enormous. The world record of 300,000 points was recently broken! It remains to be seen whether the technology can be further perfected or whether others will quickly take its place.
