How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

This is the absolutely best (and the only official) Tetris game on the Android. I won't go into too much detail on what this is or how it's played, because (most likely) everyone has already played it, or some variation of this amazing puzzler.

The Good:

- The touch controls are simply flawless, and I have not experienced any problems that other reviewers have reported about them. I only went up to level 12, but even at that speed everything responded fine. You have plenty of time to change the orientation of the Tetrimino even AFTER it falls.

- "Magic" mode puts a great spin on the classic Tetris by giving you set level line clear goals and throwing in a ton of cool power ups into the mix.

- There are Statistics to help you keep tracks of your lines and high scores in both modes (Marathon and Magic).

- Multiple languages are supported. English, French, Dutch, Italian and Spanish. Not that there is a lot of writing here, but at least you will be able to go through the extensive options and help file in the language of your choice.

- The Help menu explains pretty much all the Tetris basics, as well as new features exclusive to this game.

- It's the classic Tetris I grew up on (with a few twists).

- The music is fairly pleasant, mostly remixes of original and classic tunes, with a lot of new ones thrown in for good measure. Purists will hate this, I think it's a good change.

- Graphics are outstanding. The blocks are big and bright, and the backgrounds are cool and bubbly (you can disable these bubbles should you want to in the options menu).

- It does NOT have to be connected via WiFi or 3/4G to be played. I tried it on a tablet and two phones in airplane mode.

1.0 out of 5 stars Permissions September 14, 2012
Wow, sure glad I read all the reviews on the invasive permissions. Love the game but not worth the risk.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the Tetris I was looking for... but playable. October 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
Once upon a time I gleefully sank quarters into the arcade Tetris. I played it on the Mac under System 6.5. I owned the Nintendo Cartridge, Gameboy, Game Boy Advance versions.

This one is okay, but without even an allusion to the classic music, it doesn't feel like anything more than a hollow knock-off. And those are numerous and free to begin with.

I might play this game once in a blue moon, but it won't be on my the first 3 pages of my phone's display. Kind of like having built in Solitaire in Windows. If I had my old phone - it would probably be nuked for storage reasons, but luckily, I don't have to worry about it.

However, I cannot get this app to work. I bought it over a year ago and my device keeps telling me it cannot download it. The same app works just fine on my ipod.
