What's New in Version 1.6.3
- minor bug fixes
Great game but with one frustrating flaw...
If you grab the blocks while they are dropping to bring them down faster, the next block starts dropping before you get a chance to place the previous one. I like the option of guiding the blocks into place as they are falling, so I can put them exactly where I want them, but if the next block starts to drop before I placed the previous one, the previous one will just drop anywhere, messing everything up. If you tap the down arrow in the upper left corner to drop the blocks rapidly, this problem doesn't happen, but you lose the option of manipulating the blocks to where you actually need them to be. They need to fit this so you can ride the blocks down into position with your finger, and not have the next set fall until you are done placing the previous set of blocks. Other than that, this game is really addicting and a good time killer.
Don't buy EA's Tetris, get THIS!
After major disappointment from the official Tetris app (should have expected, after all, it was made by EA) which barley resembled the original game at all. Having a few bucks left on my account, I bought this, the obvious Tetris clone. Simply put, it's Tetris with more blocks and two new modes. I can think of a total of two, tiny flaws with this game. 1) the touch screen controls occasionally screw you over when attempting to slide blocks into small spaces at the last minute, and 2) if you use MOG as opposed to iTunes like I do, you won't be able to listen to it while playing, when I attempt to play a song off of MOG in this app, it immediately shuts off the music. Over all, this is the version of Tetris you want to play if you want the classic puzzle game on your iPhone or iPod touch
This 'TETRIS' game is a good time-waster!
I have had a lot of fun with this game. I rated it four stars because I have difficulty with 2 of the 3 game modes. I'm older and my fingers shake sometimes. So I can only play one mode in order to keep from feeling like a 'failure.' I'm stating a fact about my skill level, and not about 'bugs' in the game design... It was simply not designed for older people who might have some physical limitations. A possible cure for the need to be met, might be another mode for those 'seniors' who love 'tetris' type games but just need some 'twist' not particularly designed for the young and spry! You design techies out there just give this opinion some consideration, out of respect for your elders... Please.???
