Tetris if it were a side scroller.  The playfield continually moves to the left with an ever repeating pattern.  The scrolling starts at its slowest on level 0 and gradually increases to the fastest scroll rate at level 19.

This hack includes HydrantDude's DAS (Delayed Auto Shift) controls.  They default to the normal game default but DAS can be adjusted to set the initial delay and ARR (Auto Repeat Rate) can be set to control how many frames between movements.    When enabled, ARE charge will guarantee DAS is charged when the piece spawns.

Also included is the ability to adjust how many levels are added when starting a level with A pressed.

Thanks to HydrantDude, Ejona86 and Kirjava for code examples that were invaluable in putting this together.
