One problem with that: This game has absolutely nothing to do with Tetris at all. Or Yoshi/Mario, in fact! It was given the Tetris name and YI characters to help generate more sales. The original game was called Panel de Pon and was about fairies. I think that back then, fairies were considered "girly" things and boys would never want to play the game if it was about fairies, so they changed it to a YI theme instead and renamed it Tetris Attack, since Tetris was (and still is, I believe) very popular. I highly doubt they based it on Tetris code AT ALL.
Anyways... How exactly did that glitch happen? I've never seen anything like it in all my years of playing TA. o_O
EDIT: by the way, I have no idea what Panel de Pon means at all. As far as I know, no one's translated it before, so it's just Panel de Pon everywhere. (I mean the title itself, not the game. The game's been translated, I know that- but even the translation shows the title as "Panel de Pon".)
