Product Description

Product Description

Originally developed on a Russian DCC clone PDP Computer by a humble employee of the Moscow Academy of Sciences, Alexey Pajitnov's mega hit succeeds where other puzzle games have failed: by keeping it simple. Seven blocks, known as Tetraminoes, and one empty "well" quickly translate into hopeless addiction. There are few games that haunt you even after you stop playing -- but 30 minutes with this puzzle masterpiece and you'll see Tetris pieces wherever you look. No matter what platform it's on, Tetris remains one of the purest and accessible videogames ever made, proving that some of the most addictive games are the simplest.

From the Manufacturer

Tetris and Game Boy go together better than peanut butter and jelly. With the bright colors available in Tetris DX for Game Boy Color it's become a match made in heaven. Opting not to tamper with perfection, the developers have delivered a classic Tetris game. The main difference between this game and its portable predecessors is the presence of colorful graphics. The backgrounds change color as you build lines and the brightly colored pieces are easy to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Addictive, a great step up from the original! November 20, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Tetris DX is a great game, and improvement over Black and White. The new colors allow swirling effects that makes this game simply irresistable. Following the basic tetris format, the game gives you the same amount of challenge, but with new levels. It has memory for 4 players. The computer notes a players stratagy, and you can play aginst that player without him/her being there. Also, unlike the original, this game actually saves your score.. Try another new level. See how many lines you can clear under 3 minutes! No more waiting to get the rocket, each level under the "B" game gives you some kind of rocket(including the Statue of Liberty). Even Screen Savers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grandma Tetris August 17, 2000
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As I am a grandma of 62 years old, I played my first game of tetris this month on my grandsons gameboy. I moved to Georgia, from New Jersey and on the trip down here, I played tetris from N.J. to GA. Because of that experience, I went out and bought a game boy and the tetris dx game. I am turning into a tetris junkie. I love the game. It is very challeging to try to beat everyone at this game. We all play the game in this household. Only complaint I have is I have to wait to see the fireworks go off. I go through 4 batteries a week. My next step is to buy another game so I can switch. This game is fun for a beginner. Thank's for your time.
Grandma Rose Terhune
P.S. Now I don't have to wait till everyone else has played. I have my own Gameboy and Tetris. WOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very addictive! December 28, 2000
Tetris DX is a very fun game! You will be addicted to it in no time! There are many different things you can do to change the game settings. For example, you can change the music. You can also change the level you are on yourself, although I wouldn't recommend doing it until after you have become a very good player. There also many game modes you can play in, like 40 Lines, on which you have to get 40 lines without your blocks hitting the top, Marathon, on which you just keep going and going and going until your blocks hit the top, or Ultra, where you see how good you can do, except you only have 3 minutes to do so. The computer also keeps track of your best records and displays them when you are choosing your level. Tetris DX is an absolutely terrific game! I would recommend it to anybody! You'll have a lot of fun playing it. Thank you for reading my review. I hope it helped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tetris Game! September 18, 2002
I have both this game AND Tetris Worlds for Game Boy Advance, And I love them both as much as the other. Tetris worlds my not have a Battery Back-up, but it more than makes up for that with the extremely fun game variations and the classic tetris Music.
Tetris DX DOES Have a battery, but it's just basic tetris. I'm able to score at least 400,000 points regularly, so every time I top out I have to put up with that annoying rocket launch sequence, wheras with Tetris Worlds, when you top out, you can start the next game right away without having to put up with annoying rocket sequences. the bottom line: went I want to play Classic Tetris, I play Tetris DX. when I want Enhanced graphics and effects and Nostalgic Music, I play Tetris Worlds

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely addictive April 7, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I only get hold of the Game Boy after my 6 year old is tucked up in bed! For the first few nights this game led to some VERY late nights as I was unable to tear myself away from it: "Just one more go!" Then I dreamt about little funny-shaped blocks falling, falling.....So beware! Tetris and Colour Game Boy - a match made in heaven. Sure there are more sensible things to do with life but this is a lot of fun!

You will love Tetris DX! I had the Tetris Gold Collection from Spectrum Holobyte CD for Windows, and I didn't think I would like this one, but it hooked me! You can change the music, pause the game and it keeps 3 of your highest scores. Very addictive and enjoyable!

5.0 out of 5 stars a cut above the previous version November 11, 2001
This is the only game I play on my GBC, which I've had for just over two years now. The two modes I stick to are Ultra and Marathon. I mostly play Ultra because the rocket ship animation that comes up after you lose when playing Marathon can get annoying after a while.
The previous version only allowed you to move one space laterally for every space the piece dropped. Very tough. In my opinion, the nicest change in this version of the game is the ease you can slid blocks laterally. The one for one idea is gone. Here in DX, I've gotten to level 30 with regularity, whereas before in previous versions, I was lucky to get past level 20.
I'd recommend this game on that change alone. The fact you can keep records for yourself is just a plus.
