Tuper Tario Tros. is millionaire !

Posted on March 1, 2010

We are proud to announce that 2 months after it has been released, Tuper Tario Tros. has been played more than 1.000.000 times on Newgrounds. And much more if we count the other websites that featured it (and sometimes “stole” it).

Regardless of the exact number, we are happy that so many people played Tuper Tario Tros. and enjoyed it. Some was inspired by the game and created a little flash movie based on TTT and another mash-up between Tetris and Snake.

Maybe Tuper Tario Tros. will come back at the end of 2010. Who knows ?

Tuper Tario Tros. : a nice glitch

Do you think the final part of Tuper Tario Tros. is too hard ?
Well, here is a protip to build a perfect castle easily !

Few weeks ago, a player found a pretty nice glitch that allows Mario to be invincible during the castle building sequence :

– Be sure to have Mario big before you reach the flag at the end of the level
– Stay in Tetris mode and let the scrolling push Mario to the flag
– When Mario runs to the castle, hit him with a Tetris piece
– Mario is now little, can’t be played but he’s invincible !
– Hit SPACE at the end of the countdown to move the Tetrominos again

This glitch made us laugh a lot, so we decided to keep it in the game.
Feel free to use it to make new highscores.

Tuper Tario Tros. was so 2009

Posted on January 5, 2010

352.624
It’s approximatively the amount of people who played Tuper Tario Tros. on Newgrounds since its release on Christmas day. Or, is it the number of times my mom refreshed the Newgrounds game’s page ? Thanks mom !

Online coverage
It all started with IndieGames, our favorite indie games’ news website, then news and reviews appeared on Kotaku, Download squad, Switched, Destructoid, Ecrans.fr and many other websites and blogs. We also had a little chitchat with Jamin from the Wall Street Journal.

Reception
Nobody killed us for having touched such classics and some also enjoyed our little experiment. So we can say the reception have been real good, right ?

Feedbacks
We had tons of feedbacks from players and really good ones that deal with scrolling speed, level design and difficulty. The sequence that everybody like (even if they failed at) is the boss sequence. Well, it’s also the one we liked to create the most.
Thanks to all players who let us know what they thought about the game !

WTF
It’s the three words everybody screamed looking at the title. Well, you should be happy cause it could have been Platris or Matris. Tuper Tario Tros. is easier to remember (and to have nightmares), don’t you think ?
