Two minutes to take out the lines? It's Tetris Blitz

Published by at

There are countless variants of Tetris available, and some of them are even allowed to use the Tetris name. EA's Tetris Blitz covers both of those bases, with an inventive reworking of Tetris, but with a time limit. Oh, and some Freemium elements.

Tetris Blitz works to a time limit - you have two minutes to score as many points as possible using the regular Tetris grid and rules. Of course there a lot more 'arcade' to this version than your standard game, so expect lots of chains and cascade effects, fast graphics, lasers, avalanches, and power ups to get involved.

One hint for you at the moment (we'll have more in the full review next week)... focus on getting four lines completed in one drop to rack up the bonus multiplier. Coins are earned every game, and these can be used to earn more bonuses or arcade power ups... or you can pay for them with the in-app purchasing. And boy are there a lot of things to buy.
