I checked the last time I submitted in a spreadsheet and it's accurate in that case. But I wouldn't be surprised if some rounding errors occur.

Where are your times KevinDDR? You don't have to wait till you beat me. This isn't the kind of game where you play a few hours and get a top time.

2. ### Muf

I just forced Jago to play this

Updated the leaderboard with K's times over here because I'm not sure if this is okay. I haven't calculated the ovarall time yet.

Forced? What happened? You play too muf!

Edit:

Added the total time.

Edit:

I updated the first post. I'll fix the broken link later.

4. ### Muf

I've only finished it on easy so far.

5. ### Ai

I played Easy mode for a few hours this weekend. These are my current best times for the different stages:

FIERY STAGE : 00:01.98
SWORD STAGE : 00:01.98
JUMP STAGE : 00:04.31
FLY STAGE : 00:07.14
MIRROR STAGE : 00:04.79
WINDY STAGE : 00:09.32

FLOWER STAGE : 00:05.14
ERASE STAGE : 00:09.79
EARTHY STAGE : 00:24.86
SHADOW STAGE : 00:09.70
MAZE STAGE : 00:03.67
ILLUSION STAGE : 00:07.63

WOOD STAGE : 00:06.73
THUNDER STAGE : 00:07.29
GLOW STAGE : 00:07.85
SHIELD STAGE : 00:14.97
WATERY STAGE : 00:03.12
ERIOL STAGE : 00:14.80

TOTAL TIME : 02:25:07

Under 2 minutes is probably possible. I also improved a massive 00:00.88 seconds in Normal mode:

FIERY STAGE : 00:02.19
SWORD STAGE : 00:06.75
JUMP STAGE : 00:04.85

I'll give it a more serious try if I have more time. ; Has anyone played the Tetris Plus and Tetris Plus 2 puzzle mode (arcade or other versions)? I played the arcade version a few times and was wondering if there's someplace where I can find the layout for the different stages. There's a video on YouTube where someone plays all stages of Tetris Plus 2 using an unlimited bombs cheat, but so far no luck finding anything for Tetris Plus. Other pages with strategies, records etc. would also be helpful. I may create a thread for the games in the near future.

6. ### Kitaru

I could try taking video of Tetris Plus GB at some point.

7. ### Edoa.k.a. FSY

Tetris Plus is rubbish; don't waste your time with it .

The puzzle mode is trivially easy to complete, even on the hidden hardest difficulty (which requires a special code to unlock). Honestly, most people here could complete it on 1 credit in 3 attempts or less. And there's too much randomness involved for the mode to be taken seriously in terms of time attack.

And I'm pretty sure you've already heard me rant about how frustratingly bad the endless mode is too - I invested quite a bit of time going for a max-out, but had to give up after being screwed over numerous times by the game completely ignoring my input. Yep, for those of you who don't know, Tetris Plus has 20Hz (or was it 15Hz?) DAS, and completely ignores other directional input on the intermediate frames where the piece isn't shifting. So quick changes in direction -- like when performing a DAS and tap-back manoeuvre -- will fail very frequently, simply due to the bad programming of the input routines.

Tetris Plus 2 is also pretty bad, although I haven't really spent much time with it.

8. ### Ai

Yes, you did tell me to avoid playing the game not long ago. And I agree that the inputs aren't always very responsive.

Tetris Plus seems to provide a nice original concept where you guide a character to the floor by clearing lines as efficiently as possible. Time attack is indeed pretty useless as times aren't recorded by the game (unless it's for the bonus points you get for fast completions). It's score attack that I thought would offer a new challenge. Maybe I'll focus on improving my time in Cardcaptor Sakura, but it's seemingly impossible to do better. ;

EDIT:

Small improvements in Easy mode.

FIERY STAGE : 00:01.83
SWORD STAGE : 00:01.94
JUMP STAGE : 00:04.31
FLY STAGE : 00:07.10
MIRROR STAGE : 00:04.79
WINDY STAGE : 00:09.20

FLOWER STAGE : 00:04.91
ERASE STAGE : 00:08.64
EARTHY STAGE : 00:23.14
SHADOW STAGE : 00:09.00
MAZE STAGE : 00:03.56
ILLUSION STAGE : 00:07.29

WOOD STAGE : 00:06.62
THUNDER STAGE : 00:06.99
GLOW STAGE : 00:07.07
SHIELD STAGE : 00:14.49
WATERY STAGE : 00:03.12
ERIOL STAGE : 00:13.96

TOTAL TIME : 02:17.96

EDIT:

Tetris with Card Captor Sakura: Eternal Heart Story Mode Easy 02:19.38
Tetris with Cardcaptor Sakura: Eternal Heart Story Mode Normal 02:56:93 ARIKA Superplay

EDIT:

I improved a little more in Easy.

JUMP STAGE : 00:04.06
FLY STAGE : 00:06.82
MIRROR STAGE : 00:02.93
FLOWER STAGE : 00:04.70

TOTAL TIME : 02:15.36

That would be really nice, but I read somewhere that there are 100 levels.

EDIT:

And again.

FIERY STAGE : 00:01.83
SWORD STAGE : 00:01.94
JUMP STAGE : 00:03.92
FLY STAGE : 00:06.69
MIRROR STAGE : 00:02.93

ERASE STAGE : 00:08.57
EARTHY STAGE : 00:21.99
SHADOW STAGE : 00:09.00
MAZE STAGE : 00:03.43
ILLUSION STAGE : 00:06.59

WOOD STAGE : 00:06.62
THUNDER STAGE : 00:06.68
GLOW STAGE : 00:06.37
SHIELD STAGE : 00:13.87
WATERY STAGE : 00:03.12
ERIOL STAGE : 00:13.96

TOTAL TIME : 02:11.11

EDIT:

All stage times under 20 seconds now. I'll look into getting under 2 minutes, but it doesn't seem like I'll be able to get much closer any time soon.

EARTHY STAGE : 00:18.13
TOTAL TIME : 02:07.25

Ok, I finally got to take a couple passes through CCS Normal at SacAnime. There would certainly be room for more optimization, but here is what I ended up with a straight playthrough and a few rounds of re-rolls:

2.79
22.39
11.02
9.59
18.98
17.13

9.48
25.04
54.92
16.33
12.59
14.09

10.22
21.33
20.65
17.27
14.22
1:03.08

Total: 6:01.12

I have my own copy of this game, but I don't have a proper way to play Japanese PlayStation games at the moment. I'd like to get that sorted so I can optimize things further.

10. ### Kitaru

I played a pass through on my old save and brought my total time down to 4:46.21. I was using a DualShock, though. Beside further route improvements, I'll have to bring out the stick to get some cleaner performances.

The leaderboards are now up-to-date. Kitaru for now I've added your older stage times to the normal mode leaderboard and only mentioned your best overall time. I'll update your stage times when I have more recent clear times.

Overview of my current easy mode stage times:

FIERY 00:01.67
SWORD 00:01.81
JUMP 00:02.80
FLY 00:06.69
MIRROR 00:02.93
WINDY 00:07.07

FLOWER 00:04.70
ERASE 00:06.77
EARTHY 00:17.69
SHADOW 00:08.04
MAZE 00:03.12
ILLUSION 00:05.72

WOOD 00:05.21
THUNDER 00:06.68
GLOW 00:06.37
SHIELD 00:11.70
WATERY 00:02.93
ERIOL 00:07.19

Easy mode total time: 01:49.09

I have also unlocked everything in the game (hidden characters for versus play and the extra content in the galleries). This page contains all the information you needed to unlock all the extras. It's time consuming because you need to play AND win about 140 versus games against the computer. If you're skilled enough, the fastest way I've found to complete the battles is to play the CPU on Hard difficulty in Survival mode. If done correctly each game should last about 30 seconds. And then you have some other challenges you need to clear in Easy and Normal mode. The page I linked to above has a few mistakes which I'll report later.
