    Dream of Pixels's review

    Published: 2013-10-17, by Peter Warrior.

    Place the falling blocks where they should be

    • Outstanding gameplay
    • Worthy to be Tetris conceptual heir
    • No complains. Sure.

    "High Tetris (in the good sense)"

    If there's one game that we wouldn't ever expected to be reinvented in a so majestic way, that would be Tetris. In fact, nearly all re-versions of the original are worse than it, no matter if 3D, 4D, upwards or with scantily dressed señoritas in the background. The original Tetris had a so balanced and accurate gameplay that there are also those who say nowadays that it hasn't been beaten as of today.

    Dream of Pixels is the Nirvana of game developing, because beyond gameplay is about a gaming experience, a game able to reinvent the most classic of classics and, at the same time, be able to be taught and learned by anyone, no gaming experience required.

    Aside of the many awards (including the app of the day here at AppsZoom 10/27/13) it has won, we like to highlight this is a game that needs no further review and will set a new standard for casual puzzle gaming in the months or even years to come. One doesn't simply write a review without saying a thing about what the game does and gives a 9.1 away. There's a reason, trust me.

    Dream of Pixels for Free is a beautiful falling blocks puzzle game.

    A brilliant twist on the old classic - unpack tetromino blocks instead of the usual packing. Tap on the mesmerizing grid to unpack tetrominos and watch them spin, rotate and fall. Clear the lines from the beautiful cloudy grid fast enough - or it's dream over.


    • ENJOY the beautiful ever-changing visuals!
    • UNPACK lines in this brilliant twist on the falling blocks classic!
    • PLAY 5 modes: Classic, Puzzle, Pro, Nightmare and Shattered Dream!
    • RELAX in Zen Puzzle mode - slow down and think about it!
    • LISTEN to the amazing music, matching the visual experience perfectly!

    Game modes:

    * Classic - the original endless unpacking game
    * Puzzle - more than 50 puzzles, no descending grid, no time limits, just thinking
    * Pro - Classic, but starting at level 9 - faster with more points per line
    * Nightmare - starts with floating blocks, clear them all up as quick as you can to win
    * Shattered Dream - Classic with randomly placed holes in the grid
