If you like short quick games of Tetris, you will like this version. If you would like a game with more customization, where you can actually set a goal, and choose whether or not to have a time limit, you will hate this version of Tetris.
We decided to give this a 2 because the little quick games are ok, but it is disappointing that you can't actually customize it the way you want to play it. It seems like the makers of Tetris didn't give a thought to people who actually like to play long games at all.
In addition to the classic Tetris, there are several other ways to play Tetris in this game. They all work from the same basic formula of various 4-block shapes falling and needing to be manipulated to form lines. What is different is the goals of each game. Some games require you to form combinations of the same colored blocks, others like "Cascade" allow blocks that become unattached after a line clears to drop down, permitting new scoring combinations. Initially, these new games were interesting, but I found myself craving the classic tetris. That is here, too, but the blocks on the screen are rather small, and there is now an option to play with a time limit.
Even if I didn't like the new Tetris games, I expected that I would be as addicted to the classic tetris. I wasn't. I don't know what was changed, but the game just wasn't as fun and addicting, and yet I can play the NES version today and still get wrapped up in the game. This game doesn't seem to be as fast, the screen is way too small, and whatever was changed causes the game to be not as good. It's the same Tetris, but the updates detract from the game rather than add to it. I can't recommend this. I would suggest you find a NES or a Gameboy and play the original. I'll be much more fun to play.
I know I had a problem playing the squares version of this game where you had to make 4x4 squares out of the same types of pieces. I never quite figured that out.
There's another version called collapse where the pieces fall down as rows below them are cleared. This is kind of like Dr Mario, where extra pieces fall down to the playing field below, and unlike classic tetris where you have to clear the rows above a gap to fill the gaps.
There's a version where the same colored pieces stick together. This was challenging because pieces also fall down as you clear the rows like the version above and when two of the same color pieces touch, they stick together. Its an interesting twist.
In both versions pieces are both traditional and segmented, for example sometimes the straight piece made up of 4 segments will be all in one piece/color, sometimes it will be made up of 2 or 3 or 4 different pieces/colors. Which makes it all the more challenging, you have to plan for how the segments of each piece will fall as well.
Another added bonus is that now your piece preview shows you the next several pieces that are in the queque (I think it shows the next 6), not just the next one up. The only version of Tetris that I think is missing was the version for Nintendo '64 Tetris Sphere. That game brought the Tetris game to a 3-Dimensional level where you had to get rid of groups of pieces instead of organize them into groups. When they bring that game over to the next-gen systems then my tetris collection will be complete.Read more ›
