View Full Version : Dual Tetris

July 20th, 2005, 20:13
Ive made a tetris clone with a little variant: 2 pices falling :eek:

BTW the README its in spanish (i'm Mexican) but it just says that

Left Piece:

pad left - move left
pad right - move right
pad down -move down
L trigger - rotate

Right Piece:
Square - move left
Circle - move right
Cross -move down
R trigger - rotate

Start - Pause game
Select - Mute

I Hope you like it. Its difficult in the beginning but then its fun I think.

My English isnt very good i hope u can understand

Check below for the new version

Good that you like it.

Someone request an option to choose the classic tetris and the dual I'll put that in the next version and level change.

Please post any bugs.

Also im cleaning the code to release it maybe in the next version.

Any suggestions are welcome.

really fun game i enjoyed it alot!

About to try it, look like a great concept. Perhaps seperate left and right side level up could be an option. If your left side constantly cleared more lines than the right, it would level up sooner making them go at two different speeds? That would make things pretty crazy.

Edit: Wow, it may just be crazy enough as it is. Perhaps for the layout, have the playing area in the center, and have your upcoming tetris pieces on either side. It's kind of difficult to judge how many squares you have before the edge. Also, selection between backgrounds/turn background off?

That's a lot of suggestions, but it's because I love this game so much! Great work! You will keep me busy for hours!

The custom soundtrack while your playing addition to this is brilliant,
it should be added to all the emulators!

great work

Awesome work! One of the best homebrew games out there.
Keep up the good work.

August 5th, 2005, 04:13
hey i just got v1.65 and have a problem with the buttons to change the blocks around, its changing them around too fast and its hard to control the blocks unlike v1.61, because of this i went back to v1.61. Is it possible to change this in the next version? cheers

August 5th, 2005, 21:44
yeah i know that. Someone said that earlier versions were slow thats why I increase the speed, for the next version I'll fix that.

Excellent job pspepe! I will check it out. I want to see the new backgrounds.

Great Job PSPEPE.

Saludos De Otro Mexicano.

August 16th, 2005, 17:12
Hey, I played the new version. It's really awesome. As your progress, the pieces and backgrounds change. Awesome job Pspepe!!!!

August 16th, 2005, 18:34
Thanks ya somos tres :D

August 16th, 2005, 19:01
got a rather unusual request

IS there any chance of an Harry Potter edition of DUal Tetris in which you have say Draco Malfoy on one side and harry potter on another and stuff like wands and cauldrons etc come down instead of the usual.

the graphics would probaly have to be original to keep people off yer backs but with the current harry pottermania it would bring a lot of attention to the game, site and psp scene :)

August 16th, 2005, 20:13
I can make the Harry Potter backgrounds and pieces.
What do you think about it pspepe?

I don't know if pspepe wants to use only artwork that's not copyrighted.

August 20th, 2005, 01:04
I don't have much free time but if rmedtx do the graphics ill do it.

The other problem it's that i never read or watched harry potter (yeah i live under a rock :) ).

The copyright :( I can't even use the word "tris" in the name of the game but i I'm not obtaining money of this.

By the way if the next official tetris has 2 pieces falling down, you know who was the guy who did that first ;)

How do you install Dual Tetris on the PSP? I've downloaded the software to my PC, but I don't know how to install it to the PSP.

Also, is it possible to download Dual Tetris and install it directly to the PSP?


September 14th, 2005, 16:28
What firmware version of PSP are you using taurus?

September 15th, 2005, 20:27
rmedtx, I am using 2.0.

September 16th, 2005, 19:47
I don't think you can play homebrewed games with version 2.0. You can play it with v 1.0 and 1.5 only as far as I know. Have you been able to play any of the homebrewed games using your PSP?

September 18th, 2005, 21:03
rmedtx, thanks for the response. I have not been able to play any homebrew on my PSP 2.0.

Do you know of homebrew apps/games that can play on 2.0?

Also, I've read that the team working on the downgrader has dissolved. Is this true? Is there another team working on it? Also, I've heard of an "UNLOADER" for the PSP that allows you to play apps/homebrew even if you got 2.0. Can you shed light on this?


September 26th, 2005, 15:13
There are some people working on a downgrader from 2.00. Other people are trying to hack 2.00. For now my advice is that you don't do anything with your PSP. The downgraders are not perfect yet. Let the testing to the pros for now. Once they let us know that it is safe to downgrade. or to run homebrew in 2.00, then it will be the time to do it. Be patient. It's worth it.

September 30th, 2005, 05:39
Maybe this is a stupid question, but how do I exit a mode once I've started?

October 7th, 2005, 01:36
How do i get the games to play on the emulator

October 7th, 2005, 03:07
will we be able ot get grand theft auto lcs on the emulator when it comes outs.

October 7th, 2005, 16:17
Awesome game, thanks!


December 6th, 2005, 01:19
I have an idea for Dual Tetris! Have a game mode where it's just like a widescreen tetris, with two blocks falling at once, and they can cross each other's path, etc. And as soon as one locks into place at the bottom, another block begins to fall!

Pepe no pude leer en que carpeta hay que meter las carpetas, gracias

This project/homebrew/emulator what ever it is, has been unstickied. It has been unstickied because it is either an old release or has not seen an update in ages and is simply taking up space being stickied on the first page.

If the creator has a new update please post the new update in our submit news section or if you have already been granted the power post it directly in the PSP news section. Hell you can even post it in here and we'll re-sticky it because it will be considered an on-going/updated project.
