Tetris is one of the most popular videogames of all time. From 1984 when it was created by Russian designer Alexey Pajitnov till now, it continues to attract people. Tetris is one of the videogames that can live forever. Like chess, go, cards and scrabble. By 2010 Tetris franchise games sold more than 170 million units on all platforms, including mobile phones and home consoles.
Last week Nintendo released brand new game cold Tetris 99. It's a familiar to all Tetris with Battle Royale modifications. I played more than 200 games and will tell you all the truth about it.
Graphics: 4 / 5
Tetris 99 graphics are simple. Nothing similar to the Tetris Effect amazing visuals. But, Tetris Effect is like an exception. Tetris 99 looks nice on both the tablet mode and docked mode. The image is clear, the effects are nice. But, not enough of the visual fiery like in Tetris Effect.
Gameplay: 5 / 5
Original Tetris is an example of ideal gameplay. Tetris 99 is even better. In every game, you are competing with other 98 players. The only one will survive and win. Battle Royale adds new mechanics and changes game tactics making it faster and more fun. Even if you lose in the first minute, it's hard to do not press A to try again. You don't compete with records lines, you competing with real players, right now.
Here are some video tips to play better and get the first win:
Controls: 5 / 5
There are two control modes in Tetris 99. Both are nice. Playing with both joy-cons or pro controller is easy. I prefer joy-cons even more.
Replay Value: 5 / 5
It's hard to stop playing. When the game is over, you have to options: press "B" and leave or press "A" and try again. "A" is the answer. The game is so fun that you can't just stop playing it. Over and over again.
The Tetris 99 is a fresh breath to original Tetris mechanics. Like Tetris Effect created a new look, Tetris 99 creates new gameplay. If you are the Nintendo Switch owner, then you should download Tetris 99, it's free for Nintendo Online subscribers.
