Montris 2, Montris 3, Montris 4, Montris 5

I am working on the title games. The reason is that I believe the modern Tetris rules should be preserved.

Modern Tetris has many interesting mechanics that allow for rapid play and various scoring strategies. One of the concepts is the concept of lock delay. What this means is that no matter how fast the gravity is, the piece can stay on the ground for some time until being locked, usually 30 frames (half a second). Furthermore, the lock delay resets on each move and rotation, though the amount of lock delay resets is limited to reduce infinite play. The concept of lock delay makes it feasible to use high gravity, 1G gravity being 1 space per frame, even up to 20G gravity where pieces immediately drop to the ground on every frame.

Eventually when I implement the four modes (Montris 2, Montris 3, Montris 4, Montris 5), I will upload it to the public domain. The details about each variant will be revealed when I release it.

Here is the Montris 2/3/4/5: https://tetrisimplementation.coosucks.repl.co/montris.html

Montris 2 preserves the modern marathon game where the level increases every 10 lines and the speed increases as well. 15 levels is extremely easy, 20 levels still easy, but 30 levels requires extremely rapid movements.
Montris 3 preserves the modern sprint game in order to clear 40 lines as fast as possible.
Montris 4 preserves the modern ultra game in order to get the highest score in 2 minutes.
Montris 5 preserves Tetris The Grand Master where every piece increases the level (except at levels 99, 199, 299, 399, 499, 599, 699, 799, 899, and 998) and every line clear counts toward the level as well, and the player has to get to level 999.

@Novel Games, be sure to convert the source code to the New Flash Game System (HTML5), be sure to convert it as accurately as possible so as to preserve the modern rules (move reset lock delay, super rotation system, etc.) and keep in mind that Montris 5 intentionally deviates from some of the modern rules to preserve another game.

@Novel Games If you have already downloaded v1.0, replace it with v1.01 so as to fix the glitchy Montris 5 hold spawn position of I and O montriminos.

When you make the renderer, be sure to include the playfield (x coordinate increases to the left and y coordinate increases upwards, and I recommend showing some rows above the playfield like I did), the time, lines, level, score, pieces, and the recent line clear event (Single, Double, etc.) as well as the hold and six next previews. And keep the internal gameplay the same when converting. It should be 60fps. 

The ingame instructions should be "Control the blocks to fill the rows. Use left arrow to move left, right arrow to move right, up arrow to hard drop, down arrow to soft drop, Z to rotate left, X to rotate right, left shift to hold, and enter to pause. If you place a montrimino entirely above the playfield, the game is over."

The full description of Montris 2 should be "This is the 'marathon' mode of the line clear game, in order to get through as many levels as possible in increasing speed. In the game of Montris 2, your goal is to rotate the montriminos so that they fill the rows in the playfield and then be cleared. When the game starts, a montrimino will descend from the top of the play area, and the next six montriminos will be displayed on the right side for your reference. You can press the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to move the montrimino, the up arrow key to hard drop, the down arrow key to soft drop, or X key to rotate the block in clockwise direction, or the Z key for counterclockwise rotation, and the left shift key to hold the montrimino (as shown in the top left), as well as the enter key to pause. When the montriminos fill a complete row, they will be cleared from the play area. Every 10 lines the level increases and so does the speed. Up to level 20, you will get 30 frames (half a second) of lock delay each time a montrimino reaches the ground. Above level 20, the lock delay will decrease, eventually requiring extremely rapid movements to proceed. If you place a montrimino entirely above the playfield, the game ends."

The full description of Montris 3 should be "This is the 'sprint' mode of the line clear game, in order to clear 40 lines as fast as possible. In the game of Montris 3, your goal is to rotate the montriminos so as to clear 40 lines as fast as possible. When the game starts, a montrimino will descend from the top of the play area, and the next six montriminos will be displayed on the right side for your reference. You can press the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to move the montrimino, the up arrow key to hard drop, the down arrow key to soft drop, or X key to rotate the block in clockwise direction, or the Z key for counterclockwise rotation, and the left shift key to hold the montrimino (as shown in the top left), as well as the enter key to pause. When the montriminos fill a complete row, they will be cleared from the play area. To win the game, you have to quickly clear 40 lines as soon as the game starts. If you place a montrimino entirely above the playfield, the game ends."

The full description of Montris 4 should be "This is the 'ultra' mode of the line clear game, in order to get the highest score in 2 minutes. In the game of Montris 4, your goal is to rotate the montriminos so that they fill the rows in the playfield and then be cleared. When the game starts, a montrimino will descend from the top of the play area, and the next six montriminos will be displayed on the right side for your reference. You can press the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to move the montrimino, the up arrow key to hard drop, the down arrow key to soft drop, or X key to rotate the block in clockwise direction, or the Z key for counterclockwise rotation, and the left shift key to hold the montrimino (as shown in the top left), as well as the enter key to pause. When the montriminos fill a complete row, they will be cleared from the play area. You have 2 minutes to get as high of a score as possible. Be sure to try out back to back T-spins, combos, and perfect clears to increase the score. If you place a montrimino entirely above the playfield, the game ends."

The full description of Montris 5 should be "This is the 'grand master' mode of the line clear game, where the player has to get to level 999. In the game of Montris 2, your goal is to rotate the montriminos so that they fill the rows in the playfield and then be cleared. When the game starts, a montrimino will descend from the top of the play area, and the next six montriminos will be displayed on the right side for your reference.

When the montriminos fill a complete row, they will be cleared from the play area. Each placed montrimino increases the level, and every line clear increases the level as well. However, at levels 99, 199, 299, 399, 499, 599, 699, 799, and 899, only line clears will count towards the level. Furthermore, at level 998, a final line clear is necessary to get to level 999. Up to level 899, you will get 30 frames (half a second) of lock delay each time a montrimino reaches the ground. Above level 899, the lock delay decreases to 17 frames, requiring extremely rapid movements to proceed. If you place a montrimino entirely above the playfield, the game ends."

And preserve the color theme of the montriminos:

Montris 2/3/4: green S, red Z, yellow O, cyan I, orange L, blue J, magenta T — this is the modern color theme.
Montris 5: magenta S, green Z, yellow O, red I, orange L, blue J, cyan T — this is the TGM color theme.

This is used by default in the demo.

@Novel Games To run the C++ demo, you will have to use Microsoft Windows (a Microsoft operating system for Intel computers), 2000 or up, Vista recommended. However, the final HTML5 version will be cross-platform like with all the games on Novel Games.

@Novel Games If you already have v1.0 or v1.01, be sure to replace it with v1.10. It changes the scoring system and introduces Montris 5 Death. As many experienced TGM players will find it extremely easy to get to level 999 in Montris 5, the Death mode had to be introduced and must have a separate leaderboard therefore being a total of five suggested games for now.

Revised description of Montris 2: "This is the 'marathon' mode of the line clear game, where the player has to pass through as many levels as possible in increasing speed. In the game of Montris 2, your goal is to rotate the Montriminos so that they fill the rows in the playfield and then be cleared. When the game starts, a Montrimino will descend from the top of the play area, and the next six Montriminos will be displayed on the right side for your reference. The seven Montriminos are I, J, L, O, S, T, and Z in a random order. If you place a Montrimino entirely above the playfield, the game ends, otherwise, the next Montrimino will spawn. After the seven Montriminos have been generated, another random set of the seven Montriminos will be generated. You can press the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to move the Montrimino, the up arrow key to hard drop, the down arrow key to soft drop, or X key to rotate the Montrimino in clockwise direction, or the Z key for counterclockwise rotation, and the left shift key to hold the Montrimino (as shown in the top left), as well as the enter key to pause. When the Montriminos fill a complete row, they will be cleared from the play area: Single for one line, Double for two lines, Triple for three lines, and Montris for four lines. To get a higher score, you could clear lines by rotating the T Montrimino in such a way that no movement occurs after the rotation and at least three of the four diagonally adjacent Minos from the center of the T Montrimino are covered, and this is called a T-Spin. Another method to increase score is to clear lines with consecutive Montriminos, which is called a combo. If the last line clear before a Montris or T-Spin is another Montris or T-Spin, it will be marked as Back to Back, increasing the score. Every 10 lines the level increases and so does the speed. Up to level 20, you will get 30 frames (half a second) of lock delay each time a Montrimino reaches the ground. The lock delay may be reset by a move or rotation a limited number of times. Above level 20, the lock delay will decrease, eventually requiring extremely rapid movements to proceed."
