Tetris DS Review

Tetris ahs been around for years. And though its gameplay is simple, building blocks to make lines, its proves fun and addictive every time. In Tetris DS, the classic Tetris gameplay is back with some new modes.

The basic Tetris mode is called Standard Mode. Where you try to get as many lines as you can. Push mode has you trying to move the tower of Tetris blocks towards your opponent by getting two lines at a time. Another mode is called Touch mode. In this mode you use the touch screen to move blocks from side-to-side and rotate them to make lines and have the giant cage full of balloons on top hit the bottom. Mission Mode has you get lines in a certain way, like using a square block. Puzzle mode gives you a set of Tetris blocks set up in a certain way. And it gives you a few blocks, that you have to use, in a certain order, in a certain position to clear the screen. The last mode is called catch mode. This is where you control a big pile of Tetris blocks and catch more falling pieces, in an attempt to make a 4 by 4 square. After use do this these blocks and some others disappear from your pile.

There is also multiplayer. There is up to 10-player single cart or multicart local player. This game also has online play. In local play, you can play Standard Mode, Mission Mode, and Push Mode. In online, you can play Standard mode, with or without items, andPpush Mode

That's the review. I reccomend this game to puzzle game fans who don't already own any other version of Tetris.

As trivial as it may be, I can't help but be a little irritated every time I have to experience the relentless and hyperactive nostalgia present in almost all modes, with every level containing animations and sped up music from old Nintendo g...

    It's Tetris and not much else. 0

    Tetris is the art of placing ‘Tetriminos’ into a grid with the sole aim of clearing them in horizontal rows, now we have the blatantly obvious out of the way lets go back to where it all began. Tetris made a name for itself way back with the release of the Game Boy, such a name infact that many gamers still consider to this day the original ‘block-busting’ classic their favourite game of all time. There has been much deliberation as to whether the Game Boy made Tetris famous or if it was infact ...
