It's a brilliant concept. Nintendo made one of the best moves in the history of the gaming industry by pairing the new portable with this spectacular puzzler, as it was a perfect fit for play on the go — tons of people got hooked on this title 20 years ago.
Seriously, it was a phenomenon. You think Angry Birds is huge today? That was this this title back at the dawn of the '90s. It is rare for simple gameplay to achieve so much, but this one makes the exception. For the officially managed website, please be sure to visit Tetris. Play on your Tablet or Smartphone! For those of you keeping score, this is our review of why the original classic is still the best.
Read on and see if you agree with us. No matter how good the developer, how powerful the console, or how ugly and bizarre the new shapes they throw into the mix are, this one title has never, and probably will never, be bettered.
It's as simple as that, as no other title in the history of gaming has withstood the test of time like this one. Heralded as the most famous and addictive puzzler of all time, the idea is insanely simple and even more insanely playable. Guide random shapes consisting of blocks down to the 'floor', make a complete horizontal line with no gaps and the line disappears, any shapes that happen to be resting on this line fall down, rather than floating in mid-air like some annoying puzzle games.
Well is it at first, and once you've mastered it, you should be able to blast through level 9 and get that 'spectacular' ending. The graphics do the job, they are never more than dull, but they never need to be.
The introduction screen with Taj Mahal like buildings is quite nice heavily influenced by eastern architecture and history, no doubt and the ending fireworks are spectacularly rewarding, but otherwise it's just some shaded shapes falling down. What's so spectacular about that? It is the simplicity of those basic shapes that creates the magic behind the addictive nature.
The distractions are stripped away, and you are presented on a most basic level the core of what makes this thing pull you in. We inherently gravitate towards this, and no other form of amusement in the history of mankind has done it so eloquently, beautifully, and simple as this.
Classic is the word I think best describes it. There are three different tunes to listen to, plus the option of total silence Why not just turn the sound down? I can't praise the musicians enough for coming up with what I consider to be the catchiest tune ever, and I'm not just talking about videogames. There is also a noise when you rotate the blocks, just in case you wanted to know. The gameplay is where many puzzlers promise, but only few truly deliver. Titles like Mr dDiller are fine for a while and do have an air of addictiveness about them, but are more of a novelty, and this novelty inevitably wears off.
This is one of the few puzzlers that has withstood decades without going out of videogame fashion. Pointless remakes are made, integrating cartoon characters dancing at the side or large un-useable shapes into the otherwise classic formula, but they fail time and time again.
The main reason this has become so phenomenally popular is because it is so incredibly simple, a three year old could easily grip the concept within one go, and would more than likely get past level 1 straight away. Other variations are harmless enough but add too many different challenges and problems to the format so as to make it fiddly and frustrating. Nothing I have played is as instantly accessible and, indeed, as enjoyable as the original classic.
It is beneficial to bet more when the count is positive as the dealer will bust more often. This feature is available for free in the first level to help you get started. You can upgrade it for future levels to help learn this great way of winning at blackjack.
