Tetris® App User Reviews & Comments
Just a downgrade from the ea versionHow the touch controls work where any input blocks other inputs, for example speeding up a drop and needing to lift the finger to do a hard drop instead of just sliding down, is far clunkier than the ea version and personally conflicts with my muscle memory from that version severely. Furthermore, the time it takes for inactivity to make a piece place has been reduced and there is now a delay in action between when a piece has been placed and when the next piece can be affected meaning that the pace of the game feels slower because the player is forced to wait a moment between pieces and it is very easy for the game to simply kill you as a result of this when rows are stacked up near the top. Moreover, in my personal experience the play area is unnecessarily small on smaller devices. Overall, as far as I am concerned this new official version for iOS Tetris fails its predecessor down to basic controls and feel not to mention the additional variety the ea version offered which is lost..Version: 1.0.3
Overall good, with a few complaintsDon’t get me wrong, I love Tetris. I am at almost every primetime and have received money from it (it is legit). But when I first got it (around a couple months ago) there was a 10,000 dollar prize pool and I won a lot. I wasn’t very good, but I was still winning and having fun. Then I show up one day and there is a tickets system which you needed a ticket for everything. You could go offline and play just fine, but any other time it required tickets. I absolutely hated it but they did only make it so tickets are now only for Royale, which I like more. But they also dropped the prize pool on primetime to 1,000, which is one tenth that and almost never winning. One note, a lot of people complain about the ui and how small it is. I disagree, a lot of the time it is hard to tap the hold button or it sometimes doesn’t turn right. But there is a reason behind this. If you tap on the left side of the screen, it will turn left and vice versa. You can overcome the hold button issue because if you slide up it will hold for you. Nevertheless, I will still show up to primetime and continue to love the game..Version: 2.9.1
EXCESSIVE ADSEvery time I play this ANNOYING GAME, there is always ADS. it's making me SICK!!! This game is so fun, I play this for HOURS, HOURS BECAUSE THE ADS COSTS ME 40 MINUTES OF MY LIFE FROM EVERY HOUR. Don't get me wrong, I love this game. But for gods sake pls, I know you're trying to find money to give to your winners in competitions, but I am sick of playing "HEY WHY DONT YOU TAKE THESE SCRAMBLED WORDS AND MAKE THEM INTO A PUZZLE" or "HEY WHY DONT YOU TAKE THESE KEYS OFF THE ROAD FOR THE PIGS TO CROSS?!?!" I am absolutely EXHAUSTED! Playing Tetris makes my brain tired enough, but the same ads over and OVER AGAIN, MAKES ME WANT TO THROW MY EYES ACROSS THE ROOM AND DIE. Anyways, please find another way to make money. I love this game, don't make me delete it. I'd marry it because it's so good. I just love Tetris in general and this Tetris is free so like why not. but don't make a MOCKERY OF SUCH A GOOD GAME into A PLACE FOR ADVERTISEMENTS. let me playyyyyyy I don't have to waste 15 seconds after each game just to play another round ughfhfhfhfhfh..Version: 2.9.1
The new game is great just missing somethingI came from the EA Tetris just like most players. I’m not to thrilled about the new version but I’m not going to complain. The old version was great you had multiple single player modes and I wish you added more single player modes in this version. Another thing is the menu screen I don’t like it I have some random guy telling me I can play Tetris for money I think there should be a multiplayer menu so I didn’t have to listen to him whenever I open the app. The final thing I have to say is the new music and themes i hope you add the original Tetris background and shape colors back along with the music so whenever you select the original or whatever you call it it will play the original theme when you I start a game. Other than that this new version holds a lot of potential and I feel like you missed the chance to improve it and get a lot of new players who didn’t play the old version. That’s all I have to say have a good day..Version: 2.2.0
Increasingly greedyDon’t get me wrong, the game is fun and well developed. It adds a nice competitive edge to what is normally a solo game- but in the three months or so I’ve had it downloaded it’s gone through at least 10 updates, and recently those updates include having to pay to play. Just two days ago they implemented a ticket system where you get up to five tickets, each pays for one game, and you can earn a new ticket every hour (with a max of five). Today, there was a new update, and it’s one ticket per FIVE hours. Furthermore, to purchase only three tickets (for three games) its $1.00. That’s crazy to think about when a week ago it was unlimited! It went from being a fun game to get the mind flowing to something that would literally be more expensive than Netflix if I wanted to play daily. Enjoy the game but I’ll be looking for a new game app to spend my time...Version: 2.7.1
Disappointing and frustrating updatesI have been playing Tetris using this app for sometime now and I am honestly disappointed and frustrated with some of the additions. The most ridiculous feature they decided to add was actual the no ads feature, because it’s $2.99 for a month of no ads. The power ups for royales seem like a cash grab because earning coins to buy power ups seems near impossible. The chests, presumably where you’re supposed to earn coins to buy power ups, mostly spit out tickets and so if someone really wanted power ups, it’d more worth their time to throw money in to buy coins. The royale feature can be fun but it’s overall turned them game into seeming like a cash grab. Along with all those frustrations, the past two weeks or so, unless I am opening the app from a notification for prime time, the app takes longer to load than any other app on my phone, especially if I am loading it up without internet connection. I should not have to wait over three minutes for Tetris to fail to load on my phone when I’m trying to play offline..Version: 2.11.1
Pretty Fun GameI’ve been playing since July and the game has changed a lot, some for the better, some for the worse. The royale game mode was fun but now it’s very complicated and some what pay to win as you can buy power ups to help you win against others, but you can also buy them with points. That’s why I stick with normal marathon mode, which is just plain simple Tetris. It’s fun and simple, but annoying to play with ads. I bought the ad free version but it’s only for a month?? I love Tetris but cmon-ad free should be a one time purchase even if it’s higher. They added a ticket system which I think got a negative feedback from the community as people didn’t want to have a limit to the amount of matches they could play in normal mode. The developers actually fixed this and made it so tickets where only for royale mode, and I applaud them for actually changing it. Overall a very addictive and fun game but I think they should make the royale mode back to what it was like in the summer and just change the ads thing TL;DR: A fun game and worth it but it’s much better without ads. Just a couple recommendations.Version: 2.12.1
The devs listened and they delivered. Wonderful take on Tetris.Old title: EA did better This one will never live up to the EA version. Sure, it’s fine, but there’s multiple ways it could be improved. One is the controls. They could be improved a lot. They’re super slippery and I constantly lose control of the bricks. Next, you should have an option to save and pick it up later. This is one of the reasons I really liked the EA version. If I need to do something or if I’m just tired I can pick it back up later. In this one I can’t do this. It’ll reset whenever I leave and it always pisses me off. Next, please remove the tacky leaderboard thing. Instead make it high scores. Leaderboards show scores compared to other players. It’s just annoying. So yeah. Please fix these things. Please. Edit: This is now a five star game. They actually listened, which is impressive, and I really thank you for that! The controls are better, it’s less of an eye strain, and most importantly you can pick it back up! Thank you so much for actually listening to the feedback of your players, not a lot of devs do that, and I have high hopes for you company as a whole because of it..Version: 1.0.3
Fun but ruins game for skilled playersI love Tetris and have played it for a few years now and have gotten pretty decent at the game. I’ve gotten first in royal a few times and most of the time place top 10. Primetime I typical get within the top 500 globally and top 5 in my own region. My issue with this game is the power up system. The fact that they cost money and people can just buy them totally ruins the game for people who are actually good at the game. Because someone could buy like 50 of each if they really wanted and constantly send garbage to other players while getting rid of their own. And it makes it extremely frustrating and it kind of takes the fun challenge away from the competition. To me it’s become a pay-to-win game rather than a skill based game where you actually have to be good to do well. The rest of the game is really fun, just not a fan of the power ups. If you wanted to get money, I’d be a fan of seeing more backgrounds and icons for purchase instead..Version: 2.12.0
A good take on tetrisLike many people, I was pretty disappointed to see EA’s version of Tetris get taken down, however after coming across this game I’m pleasantly surprised to find that this is a great replacement. EA’s version was great, but was quite buggy, was full of micro transactions, and it also felt quite outdated. Playing this version of Tetris felt like a breath of fresh air. At the time of writing this review the game is still very early in its stages but there is a lot of potential here. There are multiple (free) themes to choose from and variety is always appreciated. However, a problem i run into often most with this version is the “next bar”. Without the colors of each individual piece appearing in the next bar to properly indicate the pieces, it makes it quite difficult to plan your actions. I find myself squinting at the next bar to try and make out which pieces are next while simultaneously controlling the falling piece. I do realize this could be an artistic choice by the developers for a minimalistic look depending on the theme, but perhaps an addition of an option to enable the colors would be appreciated. Overall I’m very happy with the way this game turned out and am excited for future content..Version: 1.0.1
This Used to Be So Simple and GoodI got this app before they added all the extra features like the Battle Royale, Primetime and whatnot, and it’s been a while since I played on the app but I came back to it recently and it’s changed so much. For starters, there are so many more features and what seems to be an always online functionality. Yes, the game will ask if you want to go offline when not connected to the internet, but immediately after “going offline” it says it couldn’t connect to the servers and won’t allow you to do anything until it does. I tested this on a plane and I couldn’t play a single game of Tetris. The other thing that frustrates me is how cluttered everything feels. They seem to have favored the money over the game because playing classic Tetris seems to be almost nonexistent now, replaced with all the battle Royale and other features. Back when I was first on the app, the only thing you could do was classic Tetris, with a few different themes and music. It was honestly great, and I wish they could’ve just kept that simplicity without adding all of the extra things. Or at least keep the simple classic game in the first place. 3 Stars might be a little generous..Version: 2.12.1
Ads cause issuesThe game looks nice and the controls are okay (sometimes they don’t react the way I want them to and cause me to misplace tetriminos). It’s a bit annoying that the default mode and the one that is displayed on the title screen is the 3-minute timed mode, I feel like endless mode should be on the title screen alongside it since it is the original mode. What irritates me the most about this app would be the ads though. An ad will play every time you start a game, which is a bit annoying on its own, but what’s worse is that after the ad is finished playing there is about a 30% chance of the app just freezing on a dimmed screen with no way to continue other than restarting the app. When this happens, if I’ve selected to resume a game, after I restart the app and go back in the option to resume my last saved game disappears and I am forced to restart and lose all of my progress. The game is alright but this bug needs fixing..Version: 2.12.3
Good but with a flawSo I’ve been playing Tetris for a while now and I’d consider myself to be pretty good, but there’s only one thing that the added recently and that’s tickets. Tickets are dumb and serve no purpose in my opinion. It limits how much you can play and it’s frustrating. I’m happy that they made it a lot better but in my personal opinion they should remove it entirely. Just think about it for a second, they made it so that you can play against people online 24 times, 25 if you counting the event. That may seem like much but this is throughout the day. On average I play against people roughly around 36 times a day before the patch and that’s only in a 8 hour limit. You see wear I’m getting at. When you play against people it’s competitive and fun, that’s one of the main reason why I play Tetris in the first place and they basically removed it. I actually stopped playing for a while for this exact reason alone. So please if you are seeing this do something about tickets. Maybe 10 or 5 minute timer delays, it just feels like I’m not free to choose if I can play competitively or not..Version: 2.7.2
Needs changesI’ve been playing Tetris for about 12-13 years and the biggest problem with this game is it has a cap on the speed. I played one classic marathon, got to the max level around a couple hundred thousand points, then made it all the way to 2.4 million until I had to go to sleep. I tried to save and quit but it lost my progress. Could have gone on forever at that speed, really pointless to play. Then I tried the BR mode, and capped at level 15 again. I played a few games and won them all, but once me and the last few people were past level 15 for a good 10 minutes it became incredibly boring. I got to 2.6 million in BR mode, with one guy left finally dying at 1.5 million. The game felt like it must have taken around 30 minutes. I was also growing the lead but there was nothing I could do if he was just good enough to survive the game would go on forever. Also I’m not sure if I had died before him would he have won, or needed to get to the points I was at? I will not being playing this game until they remove the speed cap. My thumb hurts, I lost over half my phones battery, and it’s just a huge waste of time..Version: 2.0.0
Awful mobile experienceThe touch controls for this game are so awful that you might as well be playing the classic Tetris. None of the new Tetris things work. The difference is that this Tetris is full of ads and has Millend Baird constantly telling you about the Tetris competitions going on. I do not understand why any competitive Tetris player would be playing mobile. Tetris would probably control really well with a keyboard and mouse, though for all I know the pc port of Tetris could be completely awful, too. This game isn’t completely terrible, but I think it deserves no more than 3 stars. Tetris on its own is good, so all of the extra stuff here does nothing to improve it. It all makes sense for a pc game, but not on mobile. I feel like most mobile users would prefer to just buy Tetris for 1 or 2 dollars and play normal Tetris without interruptions. The online stuff should stay but it shouldn’t be shoved in the faces of people who just want to play the regular game. Overall, you need to learn a lot from Tetris for the Gameboy..Version: 2.3.0
Great take on the game but awful executionI really enjoyed EA’s version of this game however I understand their contract ran out and it was time for a new developer. This game is a great take on Tetris however the controls are very sloppy and sluggish. It feels like every now and then a piece just slips and goes exactly where I didn’t want it to go. With this, the game becomes almost unplayable after so many levels, I’ve gotten to level 20 but it just becomes unbearably fast to the point where I don’t have time to execute how I want the piece to move. This begins around level 11-12. The ui is extremely small which doesn’t help. They could’ve easily increased the play area, especially the pause button. It’s extremely small and sometimes you have to hit it two to three times before the game registers that you want to pause the game. All the whole pieces fall and go whoever because you’re not paying attention trying to pause the game. Please fix this in future updates I’d like to continue playing but it’s annoying and frustrating when compared to the ea version..Version: 1.0.4
Ruined it with the tickets, please change it backI really loved this game, one of the two games I have on my phone. I loved primetime, even knowing I’d never be good enough to do very well. When the first royale mode was around I was definitely much happier than the second, as it was just easier for me personally. But it wasn’t a big deal, I was still happy playing the game. The ads were annoying but manageable, although still quite often. I opened the app today so see the ticketing system and I am disappointed enough to be writing this review. Highly considering deleting the app altogether after finding out that I can’t even play solo games without spending a ticket. To the developers: You had an amazing game, and you’ve ruined it for a lot of people simply by putting this ticket system in place. I realize that these reviews likely won’t do anything but it really is a shame. You make enough money off of your ads, I’m sure, get rid of the ticket system. This used to be a very calming game for me that I enjoyed, I am sad to see that it can no longer be a game I play regularly..Version: 2.7.2
THIS IS THE WORST GARBAGE I HAVE EVER SEENWow. A shocking example of corporate grubbing for money. Terrible, terrible, and terrible. I love Tetris, but this is a disgrace. Stupid boosters and power-ups like candy crush, 25 second long ads, and worst of all, they don’t even have the original game!! You can’t. Even. Play. Infinite. Tetris. Omg. That is literally what the game is!!! So instead, you can play a round with a 3-minute limit where you have to get a good score, or a glitchy, laggy, insanely difficult “100 person Tetris royale”, which isn’t even remotely fun. The controls are garbage. Drag an item to one side? Well, if your finger slides just a little bit over, the piece will move across 3 columns. Once, when I was testing out the horrid 100 person royale, I dragged a piece down to place it faster. When it landed, it glitched over to the other side of the game, ruining the layout, which was suddenly followed by three gray rows suddenly being randomly added, which happens erratically with no pattern or signal in sight. Just terrible. IF YOU ARE SEEING THIS, AND THINK THAT IT’S NOT SO BAD, PLEASE, I BEG YOU, DO. NOT. DOWNLOAD. THIS. GAME!.Version: 2.10.0
Ads and controls.Tetris is Tetris - it’s fairly hard to make the experience unenjoyable if you’re already predisposed to liking the game. This app somehow works miracles, then, by utilizing Voodoo level of ads and consistently interrupting the flow of the experience. All the cliché mobile game tropes are present as well, including loot boxes, power ups, and tickets. To make matters worse, the ‘base game’ is limited to 3 minutes instead of a steadily increasing pace. I suspect the reason for this is because, while playing a knockout game mode variant (battle royale), the speed *does* gradually increase, and it becomes abundantly clear that the controls are not designed to accommodate this. You will turn pieces when you want to slide them, or drop/save then when you want to move them, and the speed becomes unforgiving quickly. This is a poor, hollow husk of the nostalgic experiences you may have had when you were younger, but if all you want to do is play some Tetris on the go, then this will suffice I suppose..Version: 2.11.0
Great game but could be better.This is a very good game but it also has lots of potential. I’m, like most, a person who played the EA version. This game has improved that version in many aspects as we have a version adapted to new phones. My problems with the app are mainly four. The first problem is that we can’t see the quantity of lines needed to pass to the next level. The second problem is the fact that I believe that there is a maximum of 15 levels, as, even though I have completed in level 15 many more lines than in level 14, I can’t seem to pass it. The third problem is that the colors of the pieces in the waiting room, aren’t very noticeable which doesn’t let me see very well which piece will come next. Lastly, the ratio of screen to screen where you actually play in feels very small. I understand this is a very early version and the app will probably keep updating so I gave it a 5 stars but I still wanted to put the problems of it to see if it can be improved. Moreover, the gameplay isn’t laggy at all and it is very fun..Version: 1.0.4
Love it! (I also have 2 suggestions)Could you add a training mode where we can chose a speed level to train with and the score is kept track of in-game, but doesn’t count towards the leaderboard? The earlier levels are easy to pass but once I get closer to speed level 10, it requires lots of precision. A training mode would help with players who want to get better at performing at the higher speeds. The second thing is a bit harder to get in, and if your team of developers decide it would inundate the app with ads to get funds, then it is fine not to implement. But the second thing is multiplayer, I mainly just want the ability to challenge friends via game-center/local wi-fi. If you can make a large multiplayer server, that would be cool, but again, I prefer quality over quantity so if it stresses your resources, it’s all good. Thank you for the amazing game! I’m glad that there is finally a solid Teris game on iOS..Version: 1.0.4
Absolute disasterI don’t write reviews, and yet i’m here. this should explain how frustrated i am with this version. i used the EA version for years, and loved it. bought the ad free version happily for a few bucks. that version is now unplayable, completely wasting the money i paid for that version. downloaded this one, hoping maybe i could carry over my ad purchase, only to find you have to pay BY THE WEEK to get rid of ads. absolutely INSANE pricing. i dig the visuals and it’s snappier, if laggier and slower to load. i liked the battle royale mode, before again finding that it is absolutely ridiculously pay-to-win. no matter how well you do, someone who guys powerups with real world money is just going to obliterate. just a disgusting level of monetization here. 2 stars for the effort put into the presentation. overwhelming updates that make the game slower, some of the worst monetization i’ve ever seen, and downright unfair gameplay made me uninstall. stay far, far away from this. break out the old gameboy instead..Version: 3.0.0
Don’t botherThe amount of ads is unbearable, even trying to start up the classic Tetris mode forces you to watch an ad. The ads themselves are awful too, often being shady, misleading ones. The royale mode is a waste of time too, summing up to be not a battle of skill, but of who saved up enough power-ups or sank enough money in them to win the match. When you can use the 3 power-ups to get rid of the bottom 8 rows, get rid of the garbage sent your way, and also send 3 rows of garbage at your enemy and increasing the amount sent form you in quick succession, it’s no wonder people that don’t appear to be review bots rate this game low. The music is unpleasant, the controls are shoddy as well, being to close together and being unresponsive as well. There also seems to be times when the game will do something I didn’t want it to, like during a royale match the blocks I was placing dropping suddenly when I didn’t press the button for it to fall. You’d have more fun buying a Gameboy online or finding one, finding a copy of Tetris for it, and playing it on that, or even on any other platform besides this app. Don’t waste your time or money, and just pass up on this one..Version: 2.16.0
You ruined Tetris with greedThe games amazing, but now you only get to play five games then you have to wait like in Candy Crush. Before there were never tickets, you just paid for ad free and played to your heart’s content, I know I was there. The contests are cool, the online mode is entertaining, but now you can’t even play all you want like before and now you have to pay to get rid of ads AGAIN AND NOW ONLY TEMPORARILY!!! This has got to be the worst strategy ever for a game since it wasn’t done from initial release. I can’t enjoy it anymore, and I’m not wasting more money on it for tickets for the entertainment I had for the original price that I had already paid in the past! If you guys are so hung up on trying to monetize Tetris then design some cosmetic level styles and sell those, keep the old styles free, make different ones, and charge like 1.99 for each cosmetic. Not charge individuals who’ve had it for long while and already paid before just to pay again just to simply play now. This is totally unethical and as someone who loved this app, I am not supporting it any longer..Version: 2.7.2
DO NOT DOWNLOAD. NEW UPDATE ADDS PAID SUBSCRIPTION.This, for the short time since it’s release, was the best Tetris option available for the modern smartphone. Straightforward, classic Tetris gameplay with no strings attached. However, since the most recent update, the developers have decided to take an active leap backwards by including advertisements not in the initial release, and a weekly (WEEKLY!) five dollar subscription for the “convenience” of playing without the ads.l they decided to include post-release. I understand that the mobile gaming market has become a cutthroat enterprise, where those who throw their hat into this ring are going to want a guaranteed return on their investment, but surely there were other ways to consider monetizing this product before settling on one of the most scummy, deplorable business models on the mobile platform. As a matter of principle, I will be deleting this game from my phone and I will not touch another product developed by this company..Version: 1.0.4
Good game with some super annoying flawsI’m going to keep this short, I have nothing to add to the positives said about this game, it’s a solid Tetris app for killing time on your phone. My problems revolve around the games inability to handle your phone doing anything aside from Tetris while playing. I’m on an IPhone XR, and when I’m in marathon mode or Tetris Royale, the game will lag a horrible amount, borderline freezing for a short period of time, whenever I get a notification from another app. This makes it almost impossible to play the game in the faster speeds because if you get one notification, the tetrimino will have fallen on its own by the time the game can recover from this attempt on its life. A smaller gripe but more understandable, when I’m wanting to manage a notification, I have to swipe down from the top of my screen, and this will almost always drop the current tetrimino on screen. This isn’t an issue in marathon mode, I can simply pause, but if I’m in a Royale or in the Prize games it can really mess up what I’m doing if I need to check what the email I just got is for. Simply making the top 5th of your screen not be affected by swiping would be a clean and easy fix to this..Version: 2.2.0
Solid game but just one nit pickSo i love tetris i think the controls are just fine except the soft / harddrops are kinda finicky but anyways the only thing that i would change is how the gameboy theme works. Basically in that theme its all grey like a gameboy would look but when you get a tetris BOOM the game rewards you with a pop of color for a short while. My only problem is that it kinda hurts my eyes going from a long grey screen to then suddenly color and then switching back. I wish I could have an option to only make it grey and no color when you get a tetris or even better (in my opinion) is to add the gamboy theme with color and either making it that every tetris makes it grey or getting a tetris would only make the fireworks pop out. Now I know I can just use any other theme like the new basic theme but i really like the music and how the gameboy one looks and its just how i like it. I just want to be able to either see it in color always or see it in grey always so that it doesn't mess with my flow playing the game..Version: 1.0.3
Ticket system will kill this gameComing from someone who only plays the offline modes on this game, this game was great at first because of how much better it’s controls were than any other mobile Tetris game. But this new ticket system literally puts a limit on how much I can play this game. I’ve gone from playing 7-10 games a day whenever I’d like, to only playing 5 games that I have to strategically spread out in order to be able to play it all day. This is not sustainable because the reason I’m playing Tetris on mobile is for the convenience. Putting a limit on how much I can play destroys that convenience and will simply cause me to find a new way to play Tetris, rather than pay to play more on this app. I think many other people will agree with this statement. This ticket system was not thought out as it not only kills the major reason use this app, but also limits how many ads that you guys get from the game. If I play less games you guys get less ad revenue. That ad revenue will not be made back by people paying for the game because those people will simply find another place to play Tetris. This new system was put in place without considering any of the things that made people use this app and will 100% kill this app if it is not removed.Version: 2.7.0
Dismally bad presentation of a good gameThis is horrendously bad and has only gotten worse over the time I've tried to play it. Always online so don't bother trying to play without internet, and even when you do have it, the app is so slow you probably can't play anyways. When it finally starts up you're greeted with some dude screaming at you about winning cash prizes in a game mode you can't connect to. And on top of all that you have to fight through the UI to figure out how to play regular tetris, and not that survival crap or whatever other annoying game modes they have. And of course there are ads before and between every round you want to play. Want to get rid of them? 3 dollars a month. Now that would be fine if the rest of this app weren't such a sh*tshow, but I'm not paying a dime for an app that won't even let me play half the time because it can't connect so I can play a singleplayer game. This is an extremely frustrating app, I'd rather just pay $10 for a classic tetris app, but that doesn't even exist. I don't recommend this at all..Version: 2.12.1
Solo IssueSo far, I am enjoying this version of Tetris after coming from the EA version, but I have one big issue. I strictly play the solo mode, because I just like it simple. The controls are good, the different themes are good (love 8-bit the most), the score system is good, but the main issue is the Save & Quit. I don’t know if anyone else has this problem, but anytime I save and quit, it never saves. Whether I force quit the app or save and return to the menu and then continuing the game without closing the app at all, the game does not save. When I reopen the app, there is a screen asking if I want to continue or start a new game and when I click continue, it either crashes, or loads an app before continuing. Either way, it puts me back at level 1. Every 1 out of 100 times, it will continue where I left off, but mostly, I have to start over. If this one issue is taken care of, I would have no other gripe, because I enjoy this take on the original Tetris..Version: 2.7.2
Why?When this game first came out, all my Tetris problems were solved. There were great themes, and each theme even had special music! I had to delete it because of storage issues, but when I come back, there is online multiplayer, and you just had to scrap all the good features that made this game feel like a huge game of bait-and-switch. Now when you play, there are no more special themes, no matter which one you choose, the pressuring Tetris theme remix is all you’ll hear. You can’t even use the themes offline anymore! You won’t even let us change the settings offline while really, REALLY pisses me off. I knew this game had room for improvement but I think you just made it worse. And what I meant about the bait and switch? You attracted people to download this game with these special themes and music, and once it finally boomed, you practically scrapped everything good and added stuff we never asked for. Please bring these old features back. The special music to each theme and the ability to use the themes and change the settings offline..Version: 2.9.0
Worst version of Tetris I have ever playedI was so excited when I found out that EA no longer had the rights to the Tetris mobile game and that there was a new one. I knew nothing about the developer n3twork but I am a huge fan of tetris and have probably put in something like over 800 hours into the game over my lifetime, so I thought making a version of Tetris that could disappoint would be very difficult. Somehow this app managed to disappoint me nonetheless, which I really have to give it props for- I didn’t think that was possible. This app is a complete failure with some of the worst slippery and imprecise controls, trash music, and worst of all A PAY TO WIN SYSTEM. I’m not sure why anyone would add pay to win power up mechanics in a game that would be otherwise so perfectly balanced, but once again the game industry proves that it will always choose profit over making a decent game. The game isn’t enjoyable at all especially when you realize other players can give themselves an extreme advantage just by purchasing power ups. This is once again another decent game ruined by money hungry executives and it shows how soulless this industry has really become. This app especially when compared to the old one is a failure in every way and I think the entire development team should give up because they somehow managed to be more money hungry and soulless then EA..Version: 2.12.1
Good AppThe closest thIng Tetris Friends in my opinion. I wish there were more game modes like Tetris Friends on this app such as Battle 2 & 6 player and Arena, where you could play people online but in a smaller setting. Playing on a mobile device is an adjustment for me, I can still play good but my speed isn’t what it could be if I played on a computer. I wish I was able to play this on my computer (non Apple) though so I could use my keyboard instead and my battery life would last longer than my mobile device. I’m a bit in the middle with the ticket system. I like that once you use all your tickets it forces you to take a break from the app and wait if you exclusively play royale. The downside side is that avid Tetris players just want to play and not have to wait 30 minutes to get one ticket to play people again after using up all 5 in one sitting (I hope I am playing real people)..Version: 2.7.2
Pretty good version of TetrisWell, it’s Tetris. It has all the modern rules with t-spins, holds, back-to-back clears, and the all-important Tetris. The controls are decent; not as good as a controller, but good for a mobile port. The soft drop control of slowly sliding your finger down has led me to more than a few accidental hard drops, so I’d love an easier way to soft drop. I’d recommend turning down the sensitivity, too. There’s only a single player mode right now, unfortunately. Hopefully a battle mode and a zen/infinite mode are added. The themes are cool; the Neon Future theme is Tron-like but sorta boring, Toytris is basically a big homage to Toy Story, 8-Bits is Game Boy inspired (with a burst of color when you get a Tetris), Shooting Stars is minimal and calm, and Monstris is cute and reminds me of Adventure Time for some reason. Overall, a decent port of Tetris, but it feels a bit lacking in its current state. I like it a heck of a lot more than EA’s though..Version: 1.0.1
A good replacement to the EA versionSince EA announced that they’ll be removing their Tetris app from the store it was a little disappointing, but not surprising considering I would lose my runs due to the game crashing constantly and hardly allowing me to play through all the ads. This is a very good replacement but there are some awkward issues to work out like the slight latency and rather quick auto placement of pieces that leaves little room for error and recovery but they are easy to ignore because of the multiple themes and simplified hud. Granted I am writing this review a month after it’s original release on the store so there’s bound to be bugs like any game. However it is still satisfying to slam your pieces down and the screen shake and the pieces fall so smoothly. 60fps is already a large improvement over the EA version which could hardly run 30 (if even) I would highly recommend this game for those who enjoy some classic Tetris and who are looking for something to fill their free time..Version: 1.0.1
Mobile Tetris 99 for real this timeThe updates for this app in the past have been a mixed bag for me. Previous versions have paywalled what was once free content, added unnecessary fluff that at best did nothing useful and at worst sapped your battery. Several updates ago, a mode was added where you would supposedly face off against a hundred other players in a Tetris 99-esque battle royale, but without any trash lines it had no functional difference from single player with an arbitrary point where it tells you you won. However, this time was different. The addition of trash lines makes this a wonderful competitive Tetris experience. The only thing separating this from Tetris 99 is the lack of a targeting system, but that is largely unimportant at the end of the day. In fact, the many music options let this truly rival Tetris 99, something I never thought I'd say about the iOS Tetris. Worth a play if you like Tetris, great pleb stomping for higher level players too..Version: 2.6.0
Ads, pvp, skinsIts fun but there’s too many ads, it feels like you cant do anything. If you want a gift, watch an ad, if you want to play, watch an ad. if you accidentally started the wrong mode and need to go back you need to watch an ad first, then quit, then pick the other mode, and watch an ad to play that. I wish there was a pvp mode without the power ups. Another issue I have is that some games I have no attackers, and the next I suddenly have two from the start. I’m not sure what determines that or how it works, but its hard to keep up getting tetris’d twice in a row at the same time, if they decide to use the power ups it’s an instant death right from the start, which has happened to me before. Another thing I have issue with is the previews for event skins. Soo, I really liked the way the valentines event “love letter” looked, it was so pretty with the roses, however the preview doesn’t show you *everything* so I didn’t know about the animations or the music. When I got it, I was disappointed by how terrible the elevator-ish music was and how distracting/hard it is to play when a million rose petals block the screen when you get a Tetris. The previews should be little videos or animations or even let you try it first so you don’t waste your time on getting an absolutely terrible background..Version: 2.15.0
What???Maybe I should’ve reviewed the original version a few months ago. I don’t make a habit out of writing reviews but maybe if I had it would’ve prevented these weird changes. Before it was a very simple and easy to play version of Tetris. Easy to understand. You opened the app and you could play Tetris. Honestly, that’s all I needed and I was perfectly satisfied with it. Sure, sometimes it crashed and sometimes the ads would randomly play with volume when my phone volume is off and I’m in a public place, but it was solid. Now you’ve gone and added all these modes. Not only that, but you’ve prioritized them over regular Tetris. Now I have to actively search for the option to play single player Tetris. I’ve never met anyone in my life who has thought “you know what? I could really go for a battle royale version of Tetris.” All of this extra stuff bogs down the functionality of the app, it runs slower, takes longer to open and bothers me about tournaments that I don’t care for. I just wanted some good old-fashioned Tetris. I’m sorry to be harsh but I miss the old version of the app a lot..Version: 2.0.1
Built up good will to mask bad faithI’ve said to myself for the past few weeks that if the game wasn’t free it would be unplayably terrible because of their method of delivering adds. Finishing a royale game would deliver a video add you’d have to mute individually since they don’t give you the option to default mute. The way you found out you won a royale game was that you were given an add even though you weren’t even close to topping out. But now they introduced a “ticket” system for EVERY MODE OF PLAY. You have to spend one of only 5 tickets to play BY YOURSELF. The only way to play without having to spend a ticket is their “together” mode but they purposefully made it so you can’t play by yourself in a lobby. There’s also “Primetime,” where you supposedly play for real money, but the entire time they’ve offered it they’ve always made it sound so shady, like some hyped-up unwinnable carnival game. First of all, if you aren’t a literal grandmaster playing on a MacBook you have literally no chance of ever doing well in Primetime. That is all not even to mention that the background is a loop of a live action add specifically for Primetime and I just really want to ask whoever thought that was a good idea what the heck they were thinking. What makes it so annoying is that they had a relatively good thing going for amateurs and casual hobbyists but then they introduced these ridiculously broad pay to play features..Version: 2.7.0
Great gameI love playing this game it is my favorite app on the store. There’s just some things that kinda annoy me. So when I’m playing Tetris royale and I’m under pressure right, then I try to reach the hold button to get the other Tetrimino but I miss and that makes me Hera misplaced block, so I say “oh it’s just one” but then I get super unlucky and get blocks I don’t want at all 😂 and get even more misplaced blocks and end up losing. If I didn’t miss the hold button I probably would’ve lasted longer. I just really want an option to make some buttons bigger. Right now I’m playing on IPhone 11 Pro and it’s kinda small because I saw a review that they had the pro Max which is bigger so mine is smaller so it’s harder. Anyways, I’d love if there was a option to make certain buttons make bigger. Thanks for reading this. Other than that the ads are a tad bit annoying but nothing too bad..Version: 2.7.2
Solid, recommend, not perfectI come from the EA Tetris, like many others, and will likewise be comparing to that version. First off: this is a solid take on the game. I’ve already played this version a good bit, and am happy that it’s done as well as it is. I would recommend this app if someone asked. I echo what I’ve seen in other reviews though, particularly, the feeling of inconsistent controls. I occasionally feel the sting of a tetrimino locking into place far sooner than others. Buuut I will admit, as annoying as it is when that happens, I generally feel the controls are well implemented. So here are the two things I really wish were better: 1) the option of a larger UI and 2) more levels. There’s a lot of unused space on the screen on my phone, and yet the small UI makes it difficult to nimbly pause or switch a held tetrimino. I also get bored of the game stopping at level 15. I reach 15 pretty quickly, and I know there’s the high score, but that just doesn’t do it for me. On the EA version, I would usually start at level 16 and push to reach higher and higher levels. My failure was just as inevitable, but it was so much more thrilling to replay..Version: 1.0.4
Battle Royale now unplayableOne of the few game modes I liked in Tetris was battle royale mode you play against up to 100 people and you play till your the last person standing, nice and easy. Then to spice things up another player could sabotage by sending garbage your way and like wise as you clear more lines and more combos you send garbage to your foes, a nice change. But now they added power ups. Now this is what breaks things. normally you can buy power ups with coins you earn in game. Cool and all, but what if you pay cash money for it. You get tons more of the power ups. One of the power up cos the ability to toss 2 or 3 lines to your opponent and you have to either clear it away quickly or use. Shield or row remover power up. And there is no cool down so you can toss 3 or 4 power ups and can blockout someone with in seconds. And you see how your opponents screen looks you can tell they was using them and not attacking with skill. Now I understand they need to make money. I just wish there was other ways.......Version: 2.12.1
Not My TetrisI love Tetris and I can play it for hours to pass time, but they’ve ruined this version. You use to be able to play classic Tetris and the ads weren’t even much of a bother, but now the only way to play is with people or a quick game for 3 minutes. I’ll try to keep this review short, but I’m seriously frustrated by this version of Tetris. I just want to sit back and play a game of Tetris to burn time and see how long I can last. Now my only options are a 3 minute snore-fest to see how much score I can work up by the time it’s up, and cluster **** 100 player mode that is anything but satisfying. I just want my Tetris back. I don’t want a game that’s begging me to hand it cash every now and then. I would be willing to pay one flat price for a mobile Tetris game on my phone but the only official option I have is an ad-infested, money-milking, piece of crap that’s not worth my time anymore. Not my thing to write reviews, but this was the only game I cared to have on my phone and now I’ve been brought to the decision to delete it..Version: 2.12.1
Too many ads, play area is very small, players should be able to play using a remoteEvery single time I’ve lost a game was due to thinking I’m pressing one of the onscreen buttons, but in all reality turns out I’ve been missing because the UI and the rest of the play area are both unnecessarily small. As of now I am using an iPhone 11 Pro Max, but the play area is smaller than my little brother’s iPhone 5c. I don’t have the greatest vision which makes this problem a bit more frustrating, but I think there should be an option to make everything larger. I currently struggle and feel very uneasy with the given controls and would very much appreciate if players were allowed to use a remote as I’m sure the game could be played with fewer mistakes. I would also like to ask for the option to have a different menu background rather than hearing the guy talk as soon as I open the game. The last thing this game needs is to cut down a little on the ads. There’s usually somewhere you would go to remove ads, and I’m not sure if there’s a spot I missed, but I’d definitely buy that in a hurry. Other than that, I think this game could be a lot better with these changes. I really love this game, but I will unfortunately be taking a break until at least one of these features are implemented. I hope this game grows and I look forward to rating higher soon..Version: 2.5.0
MehThe game is okay, all things considered. The elements of Tetris are there, but I will echo a few of the reviews in saying that the pay to win method of gameplay is tacky and unnecessary. Additionally, this game has repeatedly failed to save my progress after saving and quitting a game. I’ll return to the game later only to be forced to watch an ad, after which the game resets my (Classic) Tetris progress to 0. I wouldn’t have an issue with pay to win IF there were systems in place that helped worked around that style of play (if you could even call it that). But any opportunities to overcome that system, in addition to progress repeatedly being wiped away, are usually fruitless. The Battle Royale mode isn’t impossible if you invest enough time in other game modes to earn power ups, but the sheer number of people who simply pay for those advantages instead is off putting, making the Battle Royale mode frustrating and unrewarding. I’ll be uninstalling the app after writing this. I expect that the developers truly don’t care if one person quits their game, but hopefully this will give somebody else some guidance when.Version: 2.15.0
Terrible reconstructionUpdate: Glitches out all the time. Smaller screen then the original. Controls don’t respond as well and messes up your play often. A massive downgrade from the previous version. Seriously how do you make it worse?!?! It’s Tetris! EA needs to give up the rights to this game so someone else can it correctly. This is such trash and so frustrating to see Tetris treated so poorly and exploited by EA. The previous version was vastly better. This new version has a smaller screen to view when playing and is littered with ads. Two ads just to play a solo game! It’s insane, unplayable. Also there’s no option to just buy a version with no ads! The solo only goes to level 15. Just full of ways they try to exploit money from people. This kind of crap should be illegal. I hope this company loses its rights to Tetris so a better version can come to phones. This is the only version of Tetris available on phones. What a waste! Awful reconstruction. I wish they would just release the old version..Version: 2.2.0
Ad-tastrophyGameplay wise, this is one of the better Tetris games brought to mobile. Quickplay, Marathon, and Tournament are pretty fun, until the catch... The biggest issue with this game is all of the ADS. It doesn’t just feel like you’re watching ads more than playing the game, you ARE. Every single gamemode you play you have to watch an ad either before or after. This is especially annoying when you want to play Quickplay, it’s not very quick when you have to watch an ad every single time you want to play it. To add on to this heaping pile of ads, if you want to claim your Daily Reward, you have to watch AN AD YET AGAIN! I have never played a single game where in order to claim my Daily Reward I have to watch an ad. Of course the number of ads and when they occur is by no mistake, the Developers behind this version of Tetris just want every single cent they can squeeze out of you. The initial thought one would have after the number of ads is, “Why not buy the add-on to take off ads?” Well when your AD-FREE add-on doesn’t last FOREVER and you get to only keep ad-free for 30 DAYS, the purchase just looks so unappealing. This game could be so much fun, but in the current state it’s in, I’m just as better off if I were to watch ads all day long. In all my (short) lifetime, I have never seen such a money hungry and devious group of developers. And I thought other mobile games were bad! The fact this is an officially licensed Tetris makes it even worse..Version: 2.16.0
Jesus H touch controlsTouch control do not work for a precision puzzle game like this. Add or subtract sensitivity you want, there will a moment where at a critical moment your piece will just drop for no reason and end your run. Of course there are ok screen controls but someone made the terrible decision for having it just be a d-pad set up where hard dropping a piece is up. UP ON A D-PAD TO DROP A PIECE. Do you not understand basic human nature? Now this a mobile version I understand, if the control were just a little finicky, I’d be able to accept. But this is mobile Tetris so there’s all the terrible trapping you’d expect from games as a serve BS. Annoying ads, terrible UI, pointless gates to gameplay modes, and somehow they messed up the Tetris music and I can find no way to change it. If you’re gonna put a pointless currency in this game at least let me grind to get a half way optimal experience. Or how about don’t and play a game who’s design doesn’t fundamentally conflict with the IPhone control scheme. TL;DR: It’s flawed from a fundamental level and all the other mobile garbage makes the experience even worse..Version: 2.9.1
This game crashes all the time, especially just as you are about to join a gameIf you want a nostalgic tetris game that reminds you of your youth this is perfect, as it has all the bugs you would come to expect to have just like your old cartridge did in your NES. Be prepared as you are rejoiced to see there is friendly competiton only to be thwarted with ticket/tokens to play against other live players but beware as the game will randomly disconnect you just as you are patiently waiting for the lobby to fill up and the countdown is initiated. Then BAMM you are booted out and lose a your chance to play... Now this has happened to me on more than just a few occasions while looking forward to Primetime and preparing myself too, I am rewarded with an ejection just as Millan Beard is saying “primetime starts now” I used to enjoy this game before the ads were pushed and I am not sure if the game is lost in translation but I fear I may not rejoin this worldwide epic saga of tetris, for the game is just like any other over crowded app with not enough bandwidth to handle. I will say it was fun while it lasted..Version: 2.7.2
Almost as fun as it used to beI remember playing Tetris for hours on my game boy classic back in the day. I even had the attachable magnifying glass and light. And when your friend brought his gameboy with the cable to connect your gameboys together and play 1v1. Man... those were the good old days. When my wife and I found this game we were hooked immediately. This game brings back great memories especially with the ability to play 1v1. The one thing that kept me from giving this game a 5 star rating was because in the 1v1 game it does not send over your cleared blocks to your opponent. This was a complaint my wife and I both had. The 1v1 mode should leverage how many points you have and how fast you can clear the blocks rather than just being a game of how long you can last against your opponent. It would be a more interactive 1v1 if I could send my cleared blocks to my opponent just like in Tetris Royal or how it used to be in Tetris classic. I want to be able to hear my wife grow frustrated at how blocks keep piling up on her screen and immediately feel the sense of competitive satisfaction. I’d give the game a 5 star rating if this were added to the 1v1 mode..Version: 2.13.0

Great if not for overuse of ads, and stupid new ticket systemI want to love this game. It’s a great touch implementation of Tetris, but they removed the purchase option for ad removal, so ads are now unavoidable and annoying, and now hey have a ridiculous additional ticket systems which limits how many free games you can play, even after watching ads. Super disappointing. Please just let me throw money at you to play a game without these stupid F2P money-grabs..Version: 2.7.1
ConflictedThis is a great app and has provided many hours of great gameplay. However, I am very, very unhappy and disappointed with the app’s inability to retrieve saved marathon games. With scores upward of 2 and 3 million it is extremely frustrating when saving such progress then attempting to continue on to beat high scores, only to find the game freezes for 1 minute, runs the same advertisement that it always runs, then begins a new game. This needs to be rectified to prevent people from deleting the app out of annoyance..Version: 2.14.1
The Ads are ridiculously overwhelmingI get it ... we want a free game so we have to watch Ads, actually I don't usually mind ... HOWEVER this is taking it to a whole new level. The length of time an Ad takes and the number of times you have to watch one is ridiculous. I'll keep checking back to see if it improves, if not, I'll just be adding it to the old App junk pile..Version: 2.12.3
The game is good but the app is terribleI’ve always loved competitive tetris but this app has not executed it very well imo. the power ups in the battle royale seem so unnecessary to me, and feel so artificial. that’s all i can complain about gameplay wise but about the app. the loading times are far too long for such a simple game. also, why can’t i play the 3m mode unless i have internet connection? seems unnecessary to me. on one occasion i spent a ticket on the battle royale game but the actual game didn’t load. i just had the sidebar and hold piece button, but no screen, only the menu. this meant that i wasted a ticket and couldn’t even play the game. on another occasion i was in the top ten of a battle royale iirc and my phone must have disconnected for a few seconds. this instantly kicked me from the game and didn’t save my position. i don’t know why..Version: 2.12.1
New change to Tetris RoyaleI was enjoying Tetris if I had given a review before the change to Tetris Royale I would have given it 4 stars. But now they introduced the new system into Tetris Royale. It is no longer about being good a Tetris a good placement of blocks. But it is now about who is able to buy the most power ups and use them in the game. It is meant to be about who can play Tetris the best in Tetris battle Royale but now it is basically pay to win. Please fix this..Version: 2.9.0
Flawed but has potentialI'm a big fan of tetris so I was pretty hyped seeing this on the store. But I can't help but be a little disappointed with how the game controls and how tetris royale plays. About the controls they're actually pretty good... for right handed people. Meanwhile for left handed people like myself it feels a little off. And I know there is a left handed mode but that's only for off screen controls. It would be nice if you could add some invert options to the game so your controls are a little more customizeable. Also having powerups in tetris royale, that you can pay for, feels super cheap. I'm not saying get rid of them but I think you should add a system that makes it more fair. Like maybe they can only use one of each powerup per round. All that out of the way I think, with more polish this game can be real good! Hope yall keep updating the game Edit: I'd like to add that the hitbox for the hold button is way too small please fix it and make it bigger it has ruined my runs multiple times.Version: 2.14.0
Great but keeps crashingWhen I’m loading into a game (no matter the game mode) I always get an ad. sometimes the entire screen goes white for a few seconds and then the ad keeps playing then crashes. so i have to go out of the app and close it then open it again. I’m wondering if you can fix this but over all the game is great..Version: 2.0.1
Pay to play 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽Please remove the pay to play for Tetris Royale it’s really ridiculous, it was completely free for all and now you’re charging $5 per day to use it!? If the internet connection cuts out you loose a ticket to play it aswell which is completely unfair!! I’d rather it be on Apple Arcade and completely free to play than this 👎🏽😔.Version: 2.7.1
Ad filled Mess and Unfair to BootAs an avid fan of Tetris, I thought I’d install this and have fun, however with all the recent changes it’s made the game frustrating and annoying to play. ADS EVERYWHERE, like you can’t play a match without seeing an ad before or after the game, this is especially annoying when it ends up lagging or you can’t exit out of it because of the ad’s close button being either unseen/too small, or the ad won’t even play. Now onto my biggest gripes with the game, the controls as well as the power ups and changes to garbage in Royal mode. I REALLY hate these changes, the power ups just give players who either pay of power ups or get them out of crates an unfair advantage, felt like a cute gimmick at first until you see that in the beginning of Royal, you get piles of garbage that incentivises the player to spam single lines to bully players. The fact they lessened the amount of garbage and how little time you can hold them before they drop is awful, a huge mistake in my opinion. Now to the controls. PLEASE FIX THEM, they’ve been awful since the game came out with constant missed fast drops and barely allows to the use of moving a block while rotating it where you want it to go, making T-Spins, Z/S-Spins frustrating to try and pull off..Version: 2.12.1
Tetris is greatThe game is a great puzzle and is addictive I really enjoy Tetris but only one thing I would like would have to be the controls so If you could can you create arrow buttons to make the controls better. But the game is really fun..Version: 2.4.0
DisappointedWhen the game gets hijacked by greedy advertisers this is what you get. Ads woven into one of the best games ever made and when you get frustrated enough to try to buy the game the cost is ridiculous - a weekly cost to play that’s more than normal games upfront cost. A seedy, greedy disappointment of what was a once great game. Even the lame attempt at choosing a few backgrounds to pad out the tiny gameplay area is just sad. Pathetic..Version: 1.0.4
Not so good right now, but Im hoping it becomes really goodIts definitely new and satisfying to play, but it does not really live up to Tetris2011 which is going to be deleted :(. It definitely has alot of potential; I would like to see updates that make gameplay fun and interesting, but keep the classic tetris feel without too many complicated gamemodes and whatnot..Version: 1.0.1
Update ChangesI was hoping that the purchase of ad free would be added to the game as an option and I’m glad that it was even though I don’t love that it’s only for 30 days but I get that you have to make money. What I wish hadn’t been implemented was the ticket system. I understand why one might limit entry into the Tetris Royale with tickets but it just seems greedy to include the solo version in the ticket limits as well. What’s the point of playing Tetris if you can only play 5 games and then have to wait another 6 hours or whatever it is to play again or you have to consistently fork out money to play. I get adding some form of monetisation outside of ads but the way it’s been implemented seems greedy and that’s not something I like saying as a game designer because I know that you need to make money but this just rubs me the wrong way..Version: 2.7.2
Great gameLove playing Tetris and would highly recommend it to anyone that likes a game that is peaceful and fun. The only thing I would change is add a ranking system to Tetris Royale as I am always matched with players way better than me. Maybe in the coming updates?.Version: 2.12.1
This is Tetris!I started playing Tetris with Tetris Effect: Connected on Xbox. Then, I heard about this and thought that I would get it since it is mobile and on the go. Overall solid game with some unique game modes and will be solid for people looking for a classic experience or something new..Version: 2.11.1
.I was excited to see that you could now have goals but I don’t like the new setup at all. I also hate that the rewards chest has been removed (10 stars you got a reward). It was easily a 5 star game before now I’m not sure if it’s even worth the 4 stars I’ll give it..Version: 3.0.0
Crashes And Other ThingsThis game wasn’t what I’d hoped for. I’ve had some fun with it, but more than half the time when you open it or begin playing it will crash. The area to play Tetris is also quite small in comparison to my phone screen, making it hard to see. The controls are also laggy, which is game ending later on. Please fix these issues, as I love Tetris but can’t play with so many issues.Version: 1.0.4
Ads are a killerGreat gameplay love the game, little bit tricky to get used to since no keyboard & buttons. Main problem is the ads, it’s insane.. after 1 game a ad comes up every single time, not a quick ad, a 30 second + ad And it’s $10 to get rid of ads, not forever ... for only 30 days. That’s ridiculously Expensive up your game Tetris..Version: 2.12.1
A good gameThis genuinely captures the original game and adds to it aswell! Though I feel like there are to many extra things to help newer players like the joy cons and the hold feature, but they are good non the less..Version: 1.0.4
Only one change required!Can you please make or at least have the option to change the colour of the pieces in the “next” column to their actual colour and not just all the same colour? When playing fast I look for what colour is coming next so I don’t get confused between the L,J and S,Z blocks. Other than that a two player battle mode would be a nice addition..Version: 2.9.1
Great game, shocking amount of AdsI love this game. It’s a nice little time filler but the amount of ads is beyond ridiculous, not to mention they taakke sooo looong to get through. One after every game is way over the top and the options to remove them are just plain, straight out greed. Try turning off the sound- not on the ads you can’t. Like the game but I think it has to GO.Version: 2.14.1
Overly sensitive swipeI find the pace of the app sluggish at times and as of the most recent update, it’s a bit too sensitive to the swipe up movement. Often it replaces a piece when I’m swiping to drag it left or right. Very frustrating! Also frustrating, the two adds per game..Version: 2.12.1
Royale update disappointingYou’ve ruined a fantastic game... too many ads, Royale update allows more than one player to attack and block players out quickly, and now we need to buy tickets to play?? Sorry, but a classic, simple game like this is not worth constantly paying for to play. I would have been happy to pay once off for the app but not this... uninstalling and I will take my money elsewhere to buy a different game..Version: 2.7.0
Tetris is AmazingI extremely enjoyed playing this awesome game! It is so entertaining because it gives an new spin to an old retro game 👍. It gives it a new coat of fresh paint as in the art is incredibly satisfying including the backgrounds, avatars, the home Screen and the “loading” sign. If anyone is reading this please get this excellent game..Version: 3.0.0
Polished well but a few annoying stuffI love the design of the game, because its so basic and easy to understand. The games modes are fun however an ad before every single match is annoying. Power ups are only useful on a slow speed, because on a fast speed you’ll have to take a finger off the game to press it, as well as accidentally using the power up. I would like more game modes for the competitive scene, like 1v1s or team battles..Version: 2.11.1
Ad’s ruin the gameWas excited to see a new tetris game on the app store after the previous ones removal, but the insane amount of ads just ruins the experience altogether. there’s an option to to pay money to go ad-free, which only lasts 30 days and in my opinion is way too pricey- all the add-ons are. i like the more minimalist design of the game, and the music’s fun too, but it’s so hard to enjoy any of it with ad after ad playing after every single game..Version: 2.14.0
FrustratedI like the interaction of this version of Tetris. However, compared to other versions, the sensitivity is terrible — particularly when the blocks get close to the top. You can change the sensitivity in settings but I’ve found this is more relative to swapping out the blocks not reacting to spinning/rotating the blocks. $4.00+ to remove ads for 30 days? Why not option to get rid of all of them. You also used to get rewarded for watching the videos. Nothing now..Version: 3.0.1
Good visuals, relatively intuitive controls, over-eager Ads.This app has good minimalist design and iconic music. The standard controls do become harder to manage as the pace quickens, although it is fairly intuitive and easy to understand the controls. Good job. However, the issue with the Torrent of Ads really overcasts everything as I see a 15 second ad within 1 minute of installing and selecting the solo play. I haven’t even placed a Tetris block and I see an ad... After skipping said ad, the feeling of excitement really dwindles. Additionally, solo play NEEDS you to have internet connection- which is rather questionable. In any case, the visual design of the app has greatly improved. I can only review the solo play as I don’t really enjoy the competitive aspect- just practice— without (too many) ads. I make sure to turn off internet connection just in case an ad decides to pop up in the middle of gameplay, please don’t do that. Classic game, good basic concept, modern profit complications..Version: 2.7.3
New updates have ruined the gameTetris wasn’t broken, why bring in power ups which have to be purchased? You can have multiple power ups in royal and defeat someone within 20 seconds. Was a very enjoyable game before this happened, and could understand the 5 game max when playing the free version because everyone needs to make money. But this has made it extremely unfair to true Tetris players..Version: 2.9.1
DisappointedThis is a very poor implementation of Tetris, it doesn’t play as smoothly as EA’s did when they had the licence. I just popped in to play the Tetris app I had already purchased years ago and have been playing on and off all these past years only to find it’s been stolen from me due to some extremely unethical licensing restriction by Tetris Holdings. When I say smooth, I mean, dragging Tetrominos should be smooth rather than so jaggy quantized to placement positions across the display. On drag, it snaps for too long at each block position for at least three or so frames before moving to the next block position on finger drag. The blocks should follow the users finger exactly to allow for ultra fast play. If this is supposed to be the official app, then please try and at least make it play like a Tetris game. You have some big shoes to fill N3TWORK. Unbelievably disappointed. Nathanael.Version: 1.0.4
Pay to winBesides the normal Tetris which is ok, the battle royal is a pay to win because there are abilities that can in some moment just completely get rid of your chances. If you don’t pay for protection or more attacks your almost 100% guaranteed to loose. You can get these abilities normally but you have to sit through 2 mins of adds to get a small chance of getting an ability for free. I like Tetris, but not when it’s pay to win.Version: 2.16.0
So many adsThis isn’t so much a game with ads as ads witha game attached. This is so obviously a cash grab that the game is now removed from my devices - even the paid option to remove ads is for 30 days only and even then there are still ads everywhere. All I wanted was a game to pass a few minutes here and there - much like Tetris on the old gameboy system not a cash grab with leaderboards and competitions. That this game is an editor’s choice recommendation really drives home that the App Store cannot be trusted anymore..Version: 3.0.0
Literally Pay To Play...While some games have advantages given to those that pay for specific in-game items (like Clash Royale), Tetris gives you 5 games with the 5 tickets given (a new addition to the game in the previous update) and to get more tries you need to pay real money! For more tries you are required to pay a minimum of $3. This ticket gimmick is in all modes (except for the local multiplayer mode) which limits the amount of players in the Tetris 99 mode which was just revamped and in turn completely ruins the mode. I have been playing with my friend for the past few months trying to improve our scores but now we are limited to around 5 games per day. It takes 3-4 hours for 1 ticket! This is outrageous and completely unnecessary. This game was amazing until this update and I hope it gets fixed..Version: 2.7.2
Controls too smallI love the game so far, it’s a Tetris fans dream, but I do have a issue with it. There’s no Way to make the controls bigger, which is disappointing because I usually miss the controls because of the size of them. Maybe if you could turn your phone to make it in landscape and the controls bigger or just have a control size can figuration in the settings that would be nice..Version: 2.6.3
Needs improvingThis version of Tetris definitely needs some improvements ASAP. Controls are great but the gameplay area is too small and scaled down, with the background taking up most of the screen space on my iPhone 8 Plus. It also lacks simple options that were present in previous versions of Tetris on iOS such as the ability to start a match on a higher/faster level in a Marathon game. An option to turn off the ghosting/shadows effect around the blocks would also be great as visual effects like these can be quite annoying..Version: 1.0.1
Fantastic game but....Great overall mechanics, easy to get used to and smooth. The battle Royale is fun the solo mode is great. But the main issue I run into is the save feature on the solo mode. I have a high score game that I want to come back to later so I save and quit. A day later I come back and it’s gone. It’s so sad since some of those games could have been my high scores. If they can input a new save feature or just make the one they have now more reliable I would greatly appreciate..Version: 2.7.2
Theme Idea and reviewI think the games great, it looks good, it feels good and not to mention.. it’s Tetris. I’ve been playing it for a while and i think it’s really good, I don’t really like the membership, a lot of games have one, and it’s usually to get rid of ads and gives you a skin. I hope that not all themes have to be payed for because I liked using different ones, it was nice. Speaking of themes, I have an idea for one. I was thinking of the theme from EA’s Tetris. I really liked the original Tetris for mobile, and it would be a nice throwback. In conclusion, you should definitely get this game if your already into Tetris or if your just starting to play..Version: 1.0.4
Microtransaction messHonestly the game plays fine. But this a poor excuse for Tetris due in large part to the business model; and how's that business model informs design. How about a simple buy once paid option without any timers or annuity expectations. I'll consider it again once that is incorporated. Until then it's just another example of why iOS is a horrible message. My recommendation is to drop the iPad and go buy a switch..Version: 2.16.0
WhyThey keep adding more and more micro transactions and similar BS like tickets, coins, stars and power ups. i literally just want to play tetris. ads are intrusive, game is incredibly slow to load and it’s becoming purely pay to play. they don’t even have an option to purchase unlimited plays. the only nice thing is the visuals; the controls are pretty intuitive but not sensitive and precise enough even if you adjust them. i am unreasonably upset at this tetris app.Version: 2.10.1
Shameful adsThe ads are horrible. 30 second unstoppable ads all the time. Pause your game? 30 second unskipable as coming your way. If you play disconnected from the internet the game looks entirely different. Bland and boring. Did they do this to try and get people to play while connected to the internet so they can pump more ads down your throat? Probably. Not and epic gamer move 😔.Version: 2.6.0
Good but restrictedThe app is ok. However, since the update, it is constantly requiring an internet connection when opening, which I do not always have (I was also having issues with the other versions if I went offline for long periods it would wait at the loading screen). I’ve found the new update to be messy for players who are wanting the original Tetris gameplay. I would like to be able to open the app, press “play” or “single player mode” and then play Tetris. I’m not too sure if this app is going to seperate to be online/multiplayer and Singleplayer being a so different or not, however I feel this app is currently clunky and not a good experience for the single players..Version: 2.0.0
Royal mode is flawed... the rest is ok if a little buggySo, score is meaningless in Royale mode? So you spend 5 mins just waiting for the difficulty to increase to something engaging. I can beat 50 people after 5 mins with a score <1000 by letting pieces slowly fall and clearing the odd line... meanwhile people go out with a higher score than I will ultimately get .. but I beat them? It’s just not Tetris. 😋 If score is meaningless remove it from royal mode (and maybe start it at a higher difficulty (save us all several minutes if nothing)... this isn’t a big deal - just a bug bear.. ... then there is the issue of the Royale leaderboard... its more ‘efficient’ to simply block out as fast as possible and collect the points and start again.. 🧐 The rest of the game is ok.. sometimes oddly slow to load and lags a bit at times but not too bad.. (may be my phone with deteriorating better).Version: 2.2.0
Fluid Gameplay that Needs Customisable ControlsTetris is still a great game despite being reproduced a billion times since it first came out in Soviet Russia in 1985, and this app does a fine job continuing that history. With that said, it’s missing some of the best features of the EA version of the game: and that’s the control set, which allows single press gameplay OR a more manual gameplay. This release would benefit greatly from a small adjustment like that. Also, it’d be nice to choose the difficulty level you’re playing on as well. And maybe even a soundtrack list you can use any time..Version: 1.0.2
What happened to the other Tetris app?This new app is terrible and is filled with terrible adds every 5min and promoting a prize pool competition to win money doesn’t seem legitimate at all, I will no longer be playing any Tetris on mobile ever again, you guys have ruined this bueatiful game in hot pursuit of money Reading others reviews just shows how much of a bad this company, no support messages or anything in reply just another pathetic service you just hope dumb people will use, you will never succeed with your garbage business model for this game Aswell you have a purchasable item for $5 or something for ad-free for 30 days, this is such a joke and I hope no one downloads this garbage.Version: 2.7.2
Fix it.Every time I exit the game my saved game is erased. I got a high score and paused it to do something else and when I re entered it my progress and my score was gone. An hour of playing to be erased because I exited the game. A score of 1.6 million, gone. Fix it. Also remove the tickets they are stupid. 5 games and then you have to wait for hours just to play another game. The developers are just getting greedy for money now. It literally pay to play! What are you guys? EA? Just fix it. When I first downloaded the game it was just solo marathon. I would like it to go back to that. Less pointless modes or cash cups. I just want regular old Tetris..Version: 2.8.0
New update is terribleThe hard drop before lifting finger has completely ruined the game. It drops it when I don’t want it to unexpectedly. I used to be addicted to this game but now I can’t even play it once. I’ve tried getting used to it but it is so annoying. Please change it back to how it was before or at least have a settings option where I can turn it off!.Version: 1.0.4
We are not living ATMsWhen the game can out three months ago it was great. Had the option of a one time purchase to remove ads. Now as of the latest update they added a “Premium Tetris” which is $8 a week!! All you get for that is no ads (some people already had this from the one time payment), a new skin, and three, that’s right THREE, avatar icons. I’m sorry but no game is worth over $400 a year. Especially when there are cheaper/better alternatives. Show power with your wallet, let apple know we don’t want any more game companies doing these stupid payment options which are downright ridiculous..Version: 1.0.4
Great GameI LOVED the game when I first played, it was 4+ back then. Then the cash prize tournament came and it was 17+. I am younger than 17 so now I might want to delete it. It also takes a long time to load in because it’s the copy write page for like five minutes and then I have to wait for another five minutes for it to actually go in. I think the cash prize is to much. It’s not the good ol’ Tetris like it used to be.Version: 2.6.0
Needs to improve level strategyLOVE the game of Tetris and have been playing since the early 90’s. This game is fun however past level 11, it become virtually impossible to puzzle the pieces together. Try adding more strategic puzzles to the levels instead of ONLY increasing the speed. The original game of Tetris was defined by its complexity of puzzles, not purely speed..Version: 1.0.4
Great app in the beginning. Not so much anymore.I’ve been playing on this app for over a month. I was enjoying it so much. However, after this new update that included the boosters, every time I play the pieces coming down aren’t easy to control. When pressing to change their position, it doesn’t do it straight away. It’s slow. I have looked at my settings and they haven’t changed at all. Something needs to be done about that ASAP. Im not even playing with 99 players anymore. I’m lucky to go against 30 right now..Version: 2.9.0
