If you found yourself questioning why anyone would turn Tetris into a battle royale, here is your answer.
It doesn’t initially seem like a good idea, right? The classic game of dropping blocks paired with the winner-takes-all style.
Until you get to the final few, and then Tetris 99 becomes unbearably intense. Case in point: this game from cobretty on Twitter, where they comes back multiple times from the precipice.

In case you’re wondering, this was all done with regular JoyCons plugged into your bog-standard JoyCon grip. You know, the controller with a pretty ordinary D-pad.
Over two minutes of mashing those tiny buttons to survive. Good lord.
But if you thought that was insane, here’s another video from the same player. After about five minutes, they’re faced with an absolute nightmare of a board, with holes everywhere that make it look like a Minecraft creeper.
And yet again, for a few straight minutes, they just continue digging themselves out of the hole.
This game is insane.
