Tetris, a classic video game developed by Nintendo, is thought to have been beaten by a teenager from Oklahoma, making him the first human player to accomplish this 34 years after the game’s first release.
Willis Gibson uploaded a video to his YouTube account that captured the moment he achieved level 157, which resulted in the game crashing upon playing. The young man, who was thirteen years old at the time, dropped back into his chair and uttered, “I’m going to pass out; I can’t feel my fingers.” In just 38 minutes, he was able to completely dominate the game. Up until a few years ago, gamers were under the impression that they could only play up to level 29. This is a remarkable belief.
Alexey Pajitnov, a Soviet engineer, was the one who initially developed the popular video game in 1984. The game, which involves players arranging falling blocks into perfect horizontal lines at increasing speeds, gained popularity after it was first released on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Nintendo’s Game Boy handheld console in 1989.
You may now play the game on a variety of consoles and platforms, including mobile phones, which is a significant advancement.
Tetris was one of the most popular video games for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) console and the Game Boy handheld gaming system. A professional competitive gamer named Thor Aackerlund was able to reach level 30 in the year 2010 by employing a strategy known as hypertapping. This strategy involves the player vibrating their fingers in such a way that the controller moves at a speed that is quicker than the speed of the game. Because of this, other players began to experiment with hypertapping and other strategies in order to see how far they could get; nonetheless, as of the previous month, only artificial intelligence had been able to enter the game’s actual kill screen.
When a player reaches a level that causes the game to crash, they will be presented with a kill screen during the game. What makes Tetris the “perfect” video game to play? Willis’ screen crashes and blocks no longer come down when he beats the game at the end of his 38-minute run. This signifies that he has overcome the game.
The young man, who is known on YouTube by the moniker Blue Scuti, has been playing the game ever since he was 11 years old and has participated in a number of gaming competitions. “I never expected to ever crash the game or beat it,” he stated on his YouTube account. “When I started playing this game, I never expected to ever do either of those things.”
In addition to succeeding in conquering the game, Willis claims that he also smashed the overall score as well as three other world records in Tetris. There are now other gamers who are attempting to surpass the records set by the 13-year-old, and many of them are chronicling their efforts on social media platforms and websites that stream videos.
