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.

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!

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.

P.S. Now I don't have to wait till everyone else has played. I have my own Gameboy and Tetris. WOW!

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.

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

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!

I'm not going to bother explaining what Tetris is, as by now, all of you have been laying bricks for the past two decades.

Instead, I will explain why this just might be the best tetris since the original.

Except for missing the catchy original Tetris music, this versian improves vastly over the original.

Giving the game a nice color overhaul made it really pretty to look at, and they beefed it up with several features I wished were in the original (without ruining it like they did in Tetris Worlds for the gba)

For example, there is a save anywhere feature, so you can play it anytime you want. Also, how many of us wish that you could play Tetris against another? Well, in the origianl, you had to have a buddy who had a link cabe, a gameboy and a copy of tetris to play. You still have to do that in this versian, but you can also challenge the computer to matches, and it will send you garabge blocks just like it would if you were playing one of your friends. You can set the difficulty three levels, and the higher you set it, the more aggressive the computer becomes.

Also, my main complaint with Tetris Worlds was there was no scoring feature, but this versian has plenty, and even saves the when you turn off the game. Not even the original did that! (At least, not in my gb game)

There is the "view next piece" feature, but you can turn it off if you wish, but there is no"infinate rotate" feature, or "ghost/shadow piece" to let you see when to drop it.

I was very disappointed with the gba Tetris Worlds, and it's funny that I should tell people to go buy this instead of the gba game, but this one is worth the purchase, folks!

Get this, and forget there ever was a "Tetris Worlds", as this one improves over the original in almost all ways (exept the music..I would have liked the russian tetris music, instead we get this weird techno-pop music.)
