A week ago I would've have given it at least 4 stars. But now...
I enjoy Tetris and have since it's release
way- back-when. This new version was interesting and also enjoyable until about a week ago when it began to take my money without leaving my purchases. At first it was the small 2.99 packages then the 4.99 packages where I was asked to confirm my purchase. Then a message popped-up saying something about a connection error, the transaction could not be processed... No biggie, right? I'll just try it again, but no success on the second try. Seems there was still an "error." I gave up and tried again the next day getting the same error after two try's and then it FINALLY went through on that third try. Yeah! That's what I thought until I was charged through itunes for all of the "connection errors". I sent a complaint to itunes and luckily was refunded for those purchases. Now the same issue has happened several times with
the .99 cent finisher purchases. Or should I say "attempts." I call bull sh**t ... Someone is making a profit off of these "connection errors."
I love it, but...
Very addicting. Modern approach to old school Tetris, but there are many flaws.
1. There should be a way to view all available Finishers in this game.
2. There should be a better points to coin ratio, or at least better ways to earn additional coins than watching advertisements that cause my app to crash.
3. 0 should be counted as a second so that when I attempt to make a final move, right before time runs out, I am able to do so.
4. I think it is bogus that if I do not actively spin once every four hours, those unused spins are not accumulated for later use. What if my iPad dies?
5. I am also strongly displeased by how your spin algorithm does not allow great diversity in the prizes. Even when spun every four hours on the hour for days straight, I still receive only 1 to 4 thousand-coin prizes. I should be rewarded for my dedication, don't you think?
6. I do not fully agree with the way in which Frenzy Mode operates. For example, some times tetriminos will break apart while others will not, causing Frenzy Mode to end by covering up the only gap left in the line.
7. What is truly, highly, and utterly disappointing, frustrating, and regrettable is how often all together this application crashes.
8. What disgusts me about this otherwise amazing game is that unlocking more than the first six power-ups is nearly impossible without spending any actual US Dollars.
Fun, but needs some improvement
I love Tetris from wayyyy back, so I was happy to find this version. The game is fun - the classic Tetris we all love with some cool variations. Having said that, there are quite a few things that could be improved on. The amount of coins that you earn seems a bit sparse, the virtual people that you play against if you are not connected to Facebook are lame, and the cost (either in earned coins or in actual money) that it costs to keep buying power-ups is on the high end. It is hard to earn the higher scores needed to climb the leaderboard without the use of power-ups and most people don't want to pay to play a game every time they open the app. Also, this is probably just me, but I cannot figure out how to buy finishers except when they are offered at the end of a round?? Despite all of that, oddly enough, I am quite addicted to it!!!
