I just read that there was a new, official NES Tetris released in 2018! On a Retro-Bit handheld NES clone.

Looks great.

Yes, licensed by The Tetris Company / Tetris Holding, so the game can legally use the Tetris name and logo.

That’s straight out of Tengen (Atari) Tetris, 1988.

Heathen! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’ve been reading about NESmaker, a game maker type software app that outputs NES roms playable on real hardware or emulators. I want to make something.

NESticle source code released.

Ha, I need to try that.

I started on a couple of rom hacks a few years ago.
