Does not boot in Nintendulator. Tested in FCEUX. Not yet in front of a PowerPak to test with.

The menus
Title screen - "TETRIS" logo should be changed. In this state I can't even link to it on harddrop.com, which bans links to sites offering downloads of video games that obviously infringe the Tetris trademark.
"Karinka" - Just as expected. Where there's an R, there isn't a slowdown in the verse.
"Technotris" - expected "Arabesque" written by Burgmüller, but it's "Angels We Have Heard on High".
"Korobushka" - more repetitive than even the GB version.
Obviously they want players to pick "Karinka"; that's the most fleshed out of all of them.

Game Stah-to-to!
Screen is monochrome, but the left third of the screen is "prettier" than LJ65. Game Boy homage?
Sideways shifting is slow, unlike another famous Japanese Tetris game.
Both B and A buttons rotate clockwise.
No soft drop. Down on the Control Pad does "firm drop", as seen in The New Tetris, Tetris The Grand Master 2, and Tetris The Grand Master 3 in "classic" mode, but there's no way to manually lock a piece down.
No wall kick; it's hard to turn pieces close to a wall.
Pause and the field remains visible.
"PRAYER 3"?
Overall quality of game rule implementation matches a typical JavaScript game.

I'd submit a bug report, but I speak no Japanese. So for now, I'm sticking with eating my own dogfood.

Hmm, that's odd. It works in Nintendulator for me. Different versions perhaps? It isn't all that good though, I like Tepple's version much better.

It gray-screens in Nintendulator 0.970 (January 2, 2010), but it works on a PowerPak.

Oh, and thanks.

- I second that, yes, much better.
