In Tetris DX, your save file has a statistic called "Power", which goes up when you do well, and goes down when you don't.

I never got the instruction book with my copy (bought second-hand), so I don't know if it's explained in there, but I'm not sure exactly how Power operates.

I don't know if it's level-based, score-based, lines-based, how well you play (e.g. number of Tetris' you get in a round or how long you spend fast-dropping blocks) or if it's something else, as every round is different.

As shown in the photo below I'm at Power level 1288. I can't seem to get it much higher than that, even though I'm regularly hitting 300+ lines (and at one point hit 975 lines).

So, what factors determine your power, and what's the highest it can go?

Gameplay data is recorded and stored as "POWER". Each profile has its own POWER data. Using a link cable, this data can be transferred to another cart.

In VS. COM, this can be used to play vs a CPU with a local profile, or a transfered profile's game data.

Your power increases as you play better games using your profile.

I am not sure if this is just a score the game assigns, or if any other stats or game data is taken into account.
