Yup, it's the same classic TETRIS you've known and loved (or that your parents knew and loved. whichever). This is a totally satisfying update into the mobile realm, up to and including that song (FYI: it's called "Korobeiniki." The more you know!). Just place the bricks into place as they fall. The smarter your placement, the more lines you'll clear, and the faster they'll fall. A couple different modes let you switch things up - Marathon for those times you wanna go all night, Galaxy for tricky little puzzles. Leaderboards let you evaluate your sense of personal worth.
The "ghost piece" option is really useful on mobile, letting you know in advance which places are a potential fit for the next tetrimino.
Nothin'. Tetris is forever.
Original review from Feb 13, 2014:
That song is called "Korobeiniki" and is a traditional Russian folk tune. Now you know! EA's Tetris app is everything you want it to be plus a few extra goodies more.
You know the drill: place the bricks (er, excuse me, [i]Tetriminos) as they fall into organized lines to zap 'em out of existence and rack up the points. They'll careen downwards ever faster as you advance in level, so gear up for a spacial thinking challenge. The "ghost piece" option lets you see suggested possible locations for each Tetrimino, making it much simpler to snap them into strategic place on a mobile device (of course, if you find this takes away the smack of challenge, you can turn this feature off).
Apart from the classic Tetris challenge, the app offers a handful of other really legit modes for Tetrimino play. Marathon mode lets you stack as long as you please using the controls you desire (One-Touch, Swipe, or Drag-and-Place), and Galaxy presents puzzles that you clear using the fewest blocks possible. It's a different shade of spacial strategy, but still recognizably Tetris.
Leaderboards linked with Facebook let you easily connect with friends and challenge them for the honorable title of All-Powerful Tetris Potentate.
There's a reason the classics are classic. EA's Tetris app has neither plot nor funny avian friends, but is a solid game that balances skill, reflexes, and luck just so.
Original score: 8.5/10[/i]
