Time Is Of The Essence As You Stack Tetriminos And Clear Lines In Tetris Blitz
Got two minutes to spare? Then you have just the right amount of time to play a single session of Tetris Blitz. Be cautious, though, or you might just end up playing this addictive new game from Electronics Arts for hours on end. Tetris Blitz is, of course, based on the classic puzzle game Tetris, which Electronic Arts had revamped for iOS in 2011. That explains the first part of its name. The second part of its name apparently comes from the fact that it couples the basic Tetrimino-stacking gameplay of Tetris with the fast-paced gameplay of PopCap's Bejeweled Blitz. But unlike Bejeweled Blitz, which gives you a minute to win it, so to speak, Tetris Blitz gives you two minutes to score as high as possible. If you can't see the video embedded above, pleas click here. In order to obtain high scores, you must always endeavor to trigger the game's Frenzy mode, in which you earn double points. You can also take advantage of various power-ups to boost your scores. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Tetris Blitz is available now in the App Store. Like it's fellow Blitz game, Bejeweled Blitz, Tetris Blitz is a freemium title. Tetris Blitz was announced by Electronic Arts last February and was soft-launched in the Canadian App Store earlier this month. While it retains the original "swipe" placement control, Tetris Blitz features new controls, including a "drag-and-place" option and a quick-action "one-touch" option.
