The new application has completely replaced the old TETRIS iPhone app, which EA appears to have pulled from the App Store. Because of this, customers who purchased the old TETRIS app cannot access this all-new version through a free update – instead, because TETRIS has been relaunched, it must be repurchased.
As outlined in a press release published by EA, features of the new application include:
- The fan-favorite Marathon Mode.
- A brand new level-based Galaxy Mode, where players can use game-changing power ups to dig down and shatter their scores.
- Innovative Marathon One Touch Mode, a simple and easy-to-use control scheme for Marathon mode that is specially designed for touch screen gameplay.
- New gameplay challenges delivered via the never-before-seen Tetris Log system.
- Tetris Rank functionality that tracks players’ lifetime “lines cleared” to assign an overall rank.
- Ability to subscribe to the T-Club, the only Tetris fan club to give members exclusive access to new mobile challenges and content.
The new application is currently available to purchase in the App Store for $0.99. Take a look at TETRIS for iPhone now, and let us know if you’re impressed enough to repurchase the app in the comments below.
