What's New in Version 3.0.2
Get ready for the Tetris® Blitz: 2016 Edition! Be drawn into the highly-addictive, fast-paced world of Tetris Blitz like never before. It’s all new, including:
• Step up your game with bright graphics and visuals
• Unlock exciting Power-Ups and Finishers as you level up
• Be rewarded for playing all-day, every day with new Daily Challenges
• Make it rain with fresh Golden Minos – the more you clear, the more you earn
• Be showered with Golden Minos in the Gold Rush bonus round after every level up
New graphics and features, but one problem remains
The new overhaul of the game isn't the end of me playing this app. I do like the new graphics, more opportunities to earn in-game money, all power-ups being unlocked instead of needing to be purchased and daily challenges. I also noticed some game mechanics have changed such as the way some power ups and finishers work. I guess it will take some getting use to. What I would improve include having a choice in what music to play during gameplay like with the previous versions, single player game scores that are beatable instead of impossible, and lower loading times. In addition I would also compensate players who lose power ups, finishers and money due to game crashes as EA apparently refuses to address problems with crashes happening throughout the game. This has been mentioned a lot going back several years and nothing has been done by EA to resolve power ups and finishers lost due to app crashes. While it's not a deal breaker, it does bring down the game score for me as EA seems unable or unwilling to fix this problem. I hope an update arrives that finally fixes this problem.
Update: I also do not like that a player can no longer buy a finisher and use it for later. But on the bright side a player no longer has to deal with the constant buy a finisher message after the 2 minutes are up if they went without one. Again I hope a future update brings that back.
Are You Kidding?
I can't believe you would change this game in the middle of the night! This is my First review
On any game - and now finally a player can go
Beyond level 99 !! The new graphics are terrible - the music change - terrible - the people you are playing against - did they all
Turn into cartoons? Have to reset each time you play - ?? Going back to the beginning? The graphics are for very young people now - I am Not on Facebook - it probably doesn't make any difference! I would always look forward in playing - trying to get that bonus 100k coins in the middle - I didn't look forward to the many ads to get coins - sometimes it didn't work - and the many times the game would just stop during a battle ! I am Not giving this New Game ANY Stars! I hope all the Classic Players Stop playing - I am! I tried to get back to the original but couldn't - I can't believe you would change a classic game once again - I am Not Happy and hope the older version comes back with just minor changes - this game isn't worth playing unless you are 6 yrs old! I feel like I just lost a friend!
HATE the new version
I don't usually review games, but after the latest so-called "upgrade," I had to say something.
The graphics are terrible! I feel like I'm in kindergarten. The game is now hard to navigate (not in keeping with the extremely juvenile atmosphere they developed) and is no longer intuitive.
Used to be you could work through the challenges as you played; if you completed it, great. If you didn't, so what? It would come 'round again. Now you play little one-minute games (which, by the way, stop as soon as the challenge is completed) and move from level to level immediately.
The "new" version removed some power-ups that I had won a few weeks ago. Too bad, so sad, I guess.
The spin board is frustrating; it isn't easy to play. The game board itself is now very distracting with the lightning bolts when a power-up comes up. And those "gold coin" power-ups! What a waste of programming power. Not enjoyable at all.
Additionally, the game board now has very poor contrast. It's difficult to see the frenzy blocks against the background.
I'm likely to delete the game, which is too bad. I spent money to remove ads and buy a couple of power-ups that I really liked.
I don't think the developers are going to listen, but I had to say my piece. If they go back to the previous version or give users the ability to revert if they don't like the upgrade, I might consider keeping it.
