This article was written and requested by gs68! I'm more than happy to oblige!

The Tetris: The Grand Master series is perhaps one of the more infamous variants of the classic block-stacking game Tetris.  Designed as a challenge for advanced players, TGM offers gameplay that ramps up in difficulty faster than other versions of Tetris and a grade system in which the ultimate goal is to attain the coveted "Grand Master" rank.

Today's track is Katjusha by Super Sweep from Tetris: The Grand Master ACE


Please note due to copyright issues I can not make this song available for you to download directly. 

 

Unfortunately, this is not the case with the only console release of TGM, Tetris: The Grand Master ACE.  ACE was released in 2006, when the "Tetris Guideline," a series of requirements by The Tetris Company that new Tetris games must abide by, tragically forced ACE to become a totally different game.  Gone were some of the signature elements of TGM that made it challenging and appealing to expert Tetris players in the first place.  It does have one small solace, however--it has some pretty awesome music, such as this remix of "Katyusha," one of the big three Tetris songs along with "Korobeiniki" (otherwise known as A-Type) and "Kalinka," which plays in the "Another Road" mission.

If you're a big Tetris fan who's looking to challenge himself or herself, the original TGM is emulated on the emulator ZiNc, and Tetris TGM 2 is emulated on MAME32, as well as the TGM simulators Texmaster and Heboris. Look them up on Google!
