Tetris iPhone App Review

Description:

If you love puzzle games, then you likely already have downloaded this app or are planning to buy it.  The Tetris iPhone app is one of the most paid downloads out there for mobile devices.  Iphone apps users have already downloaded over a million copies and it has made Tetris one of the most popular and recognized games of the puzzle industry.

The idea of Tetris is fairly simple.  You have a rectangular board you are working on, and you have to guide different shaped pieces down into the rectangle to form straight lines across.  As soon as you connect all the way across, that line is dissolved, opening up new options for other pieces.  The more lines you dissolve the higher your score and so on.  A “Tetris” is when you fill an entire five line block and dissolve it at the same time.  you get the most points for this, and are always aiming for it.  As you dissolve a certain number of lines you will increase levels which will change your environment and also the difficulty of the game.  The farther you go, the faster the pieces fall down, and the quicker you have to make a decision of where to place them.

Tetris is addicting and a great way to exercise brain power.  This is a great mobile version that everyone can enjoy.    The developers have done a few things to keep this remake fresh and new to all gamers.  First of all, you can either listen to the background music and sound effects or you can listen to your own iTunes library while playing the game.  Next, there are a lot of different modes to choose from.  You can pick the Classic mode which brings you back to the basics.  Rotate your blocks, slide them, and drop them into place using the unique touchscreen interface.   There is also a magic mode which has five different versions included in it.

Last of all you can get online and track your high scores and other top ranked Tetris players.  This puzzle game has quite a competitive market, so in order to be the best you have to be pretty quick!
