13-Year-Old Breaks the Unbreakable, Tetris Record Shattered

A 13-year-old Willis Gibson from the United States has achieved what was once deemed impossible: beating the legendary 1989 NES version of Tetris. This feat, accomplished at the start of 2024, has set a new benchmark in the world of gaming.

Willis Gibson’s Historic Achievement

Willis Gibson, known as Blue Scuti on YouTube, reached level 157 in Tetris on January 1, shattering previous records and expectations. Before Gibson’s achievement, surpassing even the thirties in Tetris was considered an extraordinary feat.

His journey to level 157, which took a mere 38 minutes, ended in a kill screen – a point where the game crashes due to reaching its operational limits.

Gibson’s success can be attributed to the evolution of playing techniques in Tetris. Innovations like “hypertapping,” discovered in 2010 by Thor Aackerlund, and “rolling,” identified in 2021, have enabled players to reach levels never seen before.

These techniques have revolutionized how Tetris is played, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the game.

With Gibson’s groundbreaking achievement, the quest in Tetris is far from over. Theoretical projections suggest that players can reach up to level 255.

The challenge now lies in surpassing the crash points beyond level 157 and eventually looping back to the first level after beating level 255.

Willis Gibson, in just two years of playing Tetris, has not only conquered a level thought unbeatable but also set a new highest score for the game. His accomplishment stands as a testament to the evolving nature of gaming skills and the limitless potential of young gamers.
