Tetris (tengen) Box Description

TETRIS is a dynamic puzzle that seems easy enough: Rotate and flip moving geometric blocks into unbroken rows. When you completely fill up the bottom row, it disappears from the screen and your score rises. When enough rows vanish, the blocks descend faster and faster. Nothing to it, right? Wrong! When you can't find the way to make the pieces fit together and more blocks tumble down to clog your screen, you'll wish you had ten hands - and ten brains. Warning: Although TETRIS may be great food for thought, it's so much fun, it's positively addictive. So don't forget to eat something to fuel your body (maybe apple pie?).

Tetris (tengen) Review by: supersonic44 - 9/10

Tetris (Tengen): The best one
Are you seriously looking up a review seeing if Tetris is worth your time?  Seriously?  And you have the decency to call yourself a gamer....... my MOM knows Tetris is worth your time.  And the last game she played was Portal back in 2008.  But, if you somehow have been living under a rock for the past 20 years, I'll catch you up to speed on why Tetris and this version specifically is worth your time.

While Tetris isn't known especially for its graphics, I like this games graphics.  For a NES puzzle game, its got a nice, family friendly feel.  You begin to notice this really well when this is an Unlicensed NES game made by...... well...... we'll save that for later.  8/10

The only bad thing I can say about this game sound-wise is that the Tetris theme type A is absent from this version of Tetris.  That's it.  Everything else you can't give it anything else but praise.  Seriously.  Bradinsky is a standout track especially.  Seriously, stack your tetris tower close to the top so the song intensifies and try to play normally after that.  Go, ahead try it.  I dare you.  While the theme type A would've been a nice inclusion, the song choice you get here is absolutely great.  8/10.

Tetris is the master of all puzzle games.  Why, you ask?  Because it follows the marks of a great puzzle game.  Scratch that, it MADE the puzzle game.  How did it do this?  Simple.  It's a simple concept that's extremely easy to play, but extremely hard to master.  You take shapes made up of 4 blocks, and use them to make full straight lines.  You have 1 button to rotate the block clockwise, one to rotate it counter clockwise, and the D-pad to move the block.  Easy stuff.  Or is it?  Its simple premise may make it a bit off putting, but the difficulty can be conquered with some quick and easy tips.  So, I present to you 3 of the most important things to remember when playing tetris:

Tetris Tip 1:
It's better to try to place pieces horizontally, then to create columns. Keep the wall as low as possible.

Tetris Tip 2:
Watch the preview window. When you know, where to put the next block, the game is getting easier.

Tetris Tip 3:
When you have to leave a hole in Tetris somewhere as an "overhang" you can then slide the next piece under it. Just press and hold left or right control before that hole and the piece will slide into the spot.

These tips will make you a pro tetris master in no type.  10/10

Interesting thing about this game:
This game was made by Tengen, a subsidiary of Atari, a company that was a rival of Nintendo.  Because of the rivalry, the game was only on shelves for 1 month.

This is, simply put, the best version of Tetris.  Period.  Even better then the version on Game boy.  Easily.  Now that you know about Tetris and the best version, please go and play it.  9/10

Tetris (tengen) Game Description

This version of Tetris is one of many conversions of the famous block-stacking game. The goal is to place pieces made up of four tiles in a ten-by-twenty well, organizing them into complete rows, which then disappear. The goal of each round is to clear 25 lines, after which the player moves on to the next round. If the stack reaches the top of the field, the player loses a life, and if all three lives are lost, the game is over.The game lets the player choose the starting stage and round, as well as one of three background tunes. Difficulty is increased throughout the stages by an increase in speed and the addition of garbage blocks in the well.

 Best version of tetris, on the NES.
Red626 12-07-12 - 10:13 PM
 I don't know how to fast forward in Tetris. However I can make the blocks fall faster by pressing the down arrow key. I do it all the time. When I focus on speed, I always have good practice, even when I am at a low level.

 It's a matter of how good you are at a specific game. Competition is going to be hard, but one day, someone will be proud of winning. :P
