<p>How does one “beat” Tetris? Until now everyone assumed you don’t. The game has no end; it just keeps increasing in speed until it becomes impossible to keep up with. It’s true that a lot of older arcade games, which were designed to have no end, have one because the game will bug out if you play it long enough. But…Tetris? Naw, there’s no such thing as a “kill screen” for Tetris or we would’ve heard about it by now, right?</p>

Is this for real? A kill screen in Tetris? I mean, it's been around for 34 years, and we're just hearing about it now? Color me skeptical. Nevertheless, kudos to Blue Scuti for the achievement. I might not believe in mythical kill screens, but I can appreciate a skilled gamer when I see one.

Tetris has a kill screen? Well, who knew! I've been playing it on and off for years without a clue. Blue Scuti's accomplishment is cool and all, but I'll just enjoy my Tetris at a normal pace. Kudos to the kid for the unexpected victory, though.
Impressive feat, no doubt. But let's be real, how many of us can really pull off those controller gymnastics? I'll stick to casual gaming and leave the intense Tetris action to the pros like Blue Scuti. Still, major respect for conquering a game many deemed unbeatable.

In Tetris, the rising speed fills in as a characteristic cutoff. Talented players can arrive at exceptionally undeniable levels and accomplish great scores, yet at last, the speed turns out to be outrageous to such an extent that fruitful control of the falling pieces turns out to be almost unimaginable.

The kill screen in Tetris refers to a point in the game where the code encounters an error and the game crashes. It occurs when the game reaches its functional limits, usually due to a byte-overflow error. The specific level at which the kill screen occurs can vary depending on gameplay and prior actions.
Blue Scuti, a 13-year-old Tetris player, became the first human to reach the kill screen in the NES version of Tetris. On December 21, 2023, Blue Scuti accomplished this feat after a 40-minute, 1,511-line performance, surpassing the previous record of Level 148
