    Tetris Blast, direct captued with my Nintendo Gamecube with Gameboy Adapter and Gameboy Everdrive.
    Bootup, game selection, and cheat screen are show at the beginning of the first video. Gameplay begins in the last 10-15 seconds of the 3rd video.
    Total score - 3821
    When you start the game, you start from level 1. If you beat level 25, you are given a password that allows you to continue playing up to level 50. You must enter the password to access level 26.
    The passwords in this game are unique based on level of play and score. For example, if I end level 7 with 548 points, I'm given one password. If I end level 7 with 501 points, I would be given a different password
    In the case of this game, you can see that the password I am given after the credits is used to access level 26 and my score carries over.. The question in addition to my gameplay is whether using the password to continue on to level 26 in one continuous game is allowed or breaks the rule of "must start a new game"

    Gonna bump this for discussion purposes...not looking to screw anyone over with cred hits, so even if you're not comfortable voting on this, would still appreciate opinions and discussion. The issue at hand is outlined above...is the continuation of play to level 26 allowed under current rules?

    I'm not familiar with this game, and I haven't watched the video.

    My first thought is if you start a new game, receive the password, and immediately continue playing its fine. But if you take that password and come back tomorrow and start from just there, its not fine.

    Are there any other situations besides this where you could start from not a new game, that the rules might be getting at?

    Beyond what you outline above, I don't believe so. I believe the rules were written by someone who didn't know the game continued on after level 25 since a set of credits run after that level. But the game was clearly meant to be able to progress beyond level 25 since the password you are given in level 25 is automatically entered for you in the password screen after level 25 and it maintains your score into level 26.

    Then I don't see any issue with continuing on to level 26 immediately from 25

    As long as one uses the same password they are given during said performance I think thats just fine.

    As far as the break between levels the other have commented on, I dont see that as a problem really because that would require a break in filming, which already isnt allowed. As long as there is no break in filming I see no reason one couldnt take a break during that time period in between levels. I think its a non issue though, as one can do that on nearly any game.

    I accept this submission, voting yes

    Maybe a request could be made to put in the rules that a player must start on level 1
