A very n00bish question about a certain jump.
« on: February 23, 2008, 06:00:00 pm »

On the Tetris screen, does the double jump to get on top of the final block usually take a while to get, or am I just jump-retarded?

I've seen plenty of videos in which the jump seems no problem, but for some reason I can never quite make it and get pill-squished over and over again because of it :(.

Just wondering,

Its all about timing, you'll get it if you try more.

Haha, I must really need to work on my timing. I've got 95 deaths on this save and I'd attribute about 3/4 of them to this jump.

Oh, well. Back to getting squished.

There is an easier way to get on top of the pink block. Simply go to the left side, and wait on top of the dark blue block. When the grey strip comes down, jump on top of it, then jump on top of the pink block. I found this to be easier than trying to jump from the cyan block to the pink block. It helped me, see if it helps you.

Listen to this. I'm pretty sure this is the way Kayin intended it to be done, as the final gray strip comes down much more slowly than the others and allows plenty of time to jump on top of it.

Indeed... This is the way I used because jumping to the pink block 1st is epic phail.
