  • This version of Tetris does offer some new modes that allow for slightly different gameplay challenges and play styles, but the addition of these new modes doesn't really offer an experience that's that much different from what Tetris players are used to
  • Thus, this puzzle video definitely requires some serious thinking and planning in order to reach the high levels, where things only get faster
  • It's a puzzle video game that can be enjoyed over the course of many years because there's always room for improvement and to play better and secure a higher score
  • I would've given it a 10 , but I don't think it differentiates itself enough from the other Tetris video games out there quite enough and I would've liked to see some additional modes that would've put a new spin on the way Tetris is played

      Tetris Plus is a puzzle video game for the Nintendo Game Boy Handheld. There are a variety of versions of of Tetris out there, not only for the Game Boy, but for other video game consoles and handhelds as well as multimedia devices. With all the different versions of this puzzle video game out there, one is sure to wonder whether Tetris Plus offers something besides the traditional gameplay which revolves around forming a horizontal line of blocks without any kind of gaps in order to make that row disappear and score points. This version of Tetris does offer some new modes that allow for slightly different gameplay challenges and play styles, but the addition of these new modes doesn’t really offer an experience that’s that much different from what Tetris players are used to. One such mode this puzzle video game has to offer is there’s this professor character that’s a part of the story mode and he’s walking along a line of blocks. The object is to destroy the line without dropping a block on the professor’s head. Destroying the line causes the professor to drop down one line,

      which is good, because as time passes, because the top of the screen falls little by little, and if the ceiling falls on the professor, then the player loses. If the player gets careless and accidentally drops a block on the professor, then the professor climbs up onto the block, and then you have an additional row to destroy that you didn’t have to worry about before. This mode thus requires a different strategy and play style compared to the main game since in the main game, players may indeed actually focus on building row on top of row in order to rack up more points when that crucial piece is dropped in the right spot, resulting in multiple complete rows to disappear and big bonus points to be awarded.

      Tetris Plus and Tetris in general is mainly about seeing the current block that is following and visualizing in one’s head where the block could and should go in order to score the most points. Blocks can be rotated and switched around before being placed, and the puzzle video game challenges the player to look at the blocks as puzzle pieces in

      his or her mind and arrange them in his or her mind in advance of dropping them into place because once a block is dropped, it can’t be moved, so one bad decision can potentially mean defeat. Thus, this puzzle video definitely requires some serious thinking and planning in order to reach the high levels, where things only get faster! Tetris Plus, like regular Tetris is a fast-paced puzzle video game that requires a player keep a cool head, otherwise haste will most definitely lead to waste in the form of wasted time because of the game over you’ll get for not planning out which blocks will go where better! The blocks come in a number of different shapes, so a player must not only look at what’s currently locked into place, but also, what piece they’re currently guiding downwards as well as the next piece that’s about to fall, which is shown in advance, above. That’s a lot to watch! It’s fun, challenging and even addicting, still though. There’s also a two-player vs. mode where you can compete against your friend to see who’s got the quicker fingers and quicker ...

      mind. Both the single-player and the two-player mode offer quite a lot of replay value because in the case of the single-player mode, the difficulty increases dramatically as one progresses through the levels and mastering the single-player mode will take a very long time and the two-player mode offers limitless fun if you have friends that are always striving to improve themselves at Tetris. Tetris Plus isn’t dramatically different from the other versions of Tetris out there, but I feel it’s just about as solid in terms of gameplay, controls and challenge.

      Tetris Plus and Tetris in general proves that a video game doesn’t have to have flashy visuals or orchestrated soundtracks to be entertaining and enjoyable. Indeed, Tetris Plus is, visually and audibly, a simple looking and sounding video game. The gameplay concept of arranging differently shaped blocks so that they fit inside one another, next to one another and beside one another is actually basic and simple, too. However, increase the speed and number of blocks, and suddenly, the simple concept of forming a horizontal line becomes more challenging and daunting! Additionally, the challenge present in deliberately not destroying the

      rows of blocks while waiting for that one special piece that will connect the two sides and result in multiple rows disappearing all at once and a large amount of points being rewarded can be a very satisfying feat to pull off. It’s a puzzle video game that challenges a player to strive for higher scores every time. It’s a puzzle video game that pushes a player to think faster and better each time. It’s a puzzle video game that can be enjoyed over the course of many years because there’s always room for improvement and to play better and secure a higher score. It’s a Tetris video game that actually has some comical and fun characters that only help to make the puzzle video game more pleasant and fun to play. For all these reasons, I’m rating Tetris Plus a “9″ rating. I would’ve given it a “10″, but I don’t think it differentiates itself enough from the other Tetris video games out there quite enough and I would’ve liked to see some additional modes that would’ve put a new spin on the way Tetris is played. Still, it’s a very solid and enjoyable puzzle video game.
