Strategies and fundamentals that can help you achieve high scores and improve your gameplay.
Managing your well
A single well, our only option to clear lines is the I piece, clearly.
A double well, we have far more options to clear lines here, I could’ve used a vertical T piece, a 2-wide stair piece or any of the vertical J/L ones. 4 out of 6 pieces are suitable.
A triple well, this one has the most options to clear lines by far, we can use: horizontal J/L, horizontal I, 3-wide stair or T. 5 out of 6 pieces are suitable.
Remember to use soft or hard drops to clear multiple lines all at once thanks to the corruption trail mechanic!
Align the piece first, in this case, vertically.
Once the piece reaches the bottom, rotate it accordingly (counter-clockwise in this situation).
This is useful but situational, I would recommend learning it once you’ve mastered the basics.
