Tetris Friends has a goal system where the way to get to the next level is to clear a certain number of goal lines that increases as the levels do. The optimal way to acheive a high score is using the Single-single combo strategy:
In Sprint Mode, players must clear 40 lines in the shortest time possible. Scoring is based on time.Edit

2 minutes ultra mode. Score as many points as possible within 2 minutes. In Facebook version, music is selectable from 5 songs. In website version, however, only "Midnite" music is available. This mode was formerly known as Tetris Solo, and 3 minutes mode was also available. Level is not selectable and fixed to 1. Your score will not be recorded if you top out.

The bonus level is semi-invisible challenge, and the game continues until you top out. This mode is available only in website version. In Facebook version it was available as Holiday mode, but it's not available now.gfgfgffg
Tetris 1989 Edit
This mode simulates classic GameBoy version of Tetris, but it's not so accurate. For example, DAS is somewhat faster, the gravity at level 15 is slower than original, and it has lock delay. Both A and B type game can be played, but B-type game doesn't have a separate leaderboard.
Acorn Drop (PROMO)Edit
IceAge themed 150 lines marathon game. All pieces have same colors AND designs. Now discontinued.
It's not a real game mode, but can be played in website version. You can't change keyboard mappings in this game.
Facebook version only Edit
This mode is remake of the first Tetris game released on Facebook. It has classic game elements: no hold piece, no ghost piece, no lock delay, only one piece preview, 15 level game time, and more. This mode is available only in Facebook version, and requires an account to play.
- T-spin is a deadly tool.
