    Neotris, a new puzzle game for the Neo·Geo!

    Hello everyone,

    Neotris is a new Neo·Geo puzzle game, a Tetris-like that adds some new gameplay features, including a very, very special one I'll talk about in a bit.
    It is developed by FlashLogic/Totologic, a member of the Yaronet forums. I've met him a couple of times, at 2 conventions, the Stunfest and the Retro Gaming Connexion 2019.

    Let's talk gameplay; One of the features Neotris introduces is called the Interlock, and works like this:

    Its purpose is to create an alternative to the "T-spin" method, making it a bit easier, and also feasible using all available pieces.

    Here is a 2P gameplay video:

    Now, here's the very special feature that Neotris introduces. A feature never seen in any Neo·Geo homebrew game, and in only one official game: the game supports 4 players!

    Here's an old 4P gameplay video, hopefully we'll get a new one soon because there have been some nice improvements:

    FlashLogic, Neotris' developer, made the game 4 player compatible by creating a multitap:

    Here's the latest, and probably final version:

    The final version will not be 3d printed but made from molded/injected ABS.

    The game will be available soon in AES format, with 50 Japanese games and 50 Export/US games. An MVS version is very likely, and if it is made, it will be released soon after the AES one.

    The AES version will come with a snaplock box, cover, sticker, and a full-color manual. It is very likely that everything will be offset-printed (best feasible quality, which nowadays offers a quaity even better than original games), same for the MVS version whick will come as a full kit (cardboard box and artset with 2 mini marquees, move strips, DIP sheet and flyers).

    You can follow this project on the official Facebook page: www.facebook.com/NeotrisAES

    I will also keep you updated on these boards, which should happen quite often as the game is now around 90% complete.

    When will the home cart pre-orders open? Will there be US and JP versions?

    This looks cool and all, but you can't expect those of us who pay $300+ for physical carts of homebrew to keep going forever. At some point each of us will have decide where to get off the homebrew train, and this may be it for me, sorry. This should be a free rom.

    I was FLOORED to discover recently that most of the NES homebrew I had been hearing about were not available as roms. I realize people want to get paid, but if you want me to care, then these should all be free games. There is simply too much glut for everyone to wade through now.

    Okay, I will pay $10-15 for a rom. The way Micro Mages was done on Steam is a good example of the right way to do it. I will happily support something reasonable like that.

    I think it kind of depends on the quality of the game. If something is good enough that it could have been sold on the system back in the day then sure, charge for carts. If it looks a AOL freeware game from 1993, then yeah don't bother.

    Exactly. If you want the big bucks, at least put in some effort to make it worthy of a Neo Geo release.

    Will this game only work with its own multitap accessory, or would it also support the NEO-FTC1B board?

    I think at this point in the days of flash carts available on almost all platforms (including the Neo) physical only community games should not be physical only. Yes you are gonna have ROM pirates but at least give the option available to pay the game devs $10-15 to support a release.

    Whatever he does he better finish and sell his neo carts/roms before Pajitnov smells the faint odour of trademark infringiment.

    Seriously, making a tetris clone and appending "-tris" to the title is only asking for trouble. Even free NES tetris homebrew get hit by their banhammer from time to time.

    I would be interested in a Rom for MVS or CD but doubt I would pay for an original cart or crazy money at that.
