An old-school falling bricks game that’s free to play
EA’s brick-dropping puzzle game Tetris Free is available for Android users free of charge and with ads.
A game with the same gameplay as in the past, but with new modes
Creating horizontal lines from falling shapes is the goal of Tetris, of course. Touchscreen gestures are the sole method of controlling the game.
Depending on how you want a falling block to fall, you can tap it’s side to rotate it or click and drag a shape to place it. Alternatively, you can tap the bottom of the screen to make it fall instantly. In case you have trouble controlling the game using gestures, you can switch to a d-pad mode.
Currently, there is only one mode available in Tetris for Android for free, Marathon mode. You just keep going with progressively higher levels and faster falling bricks. It’s similar to traditional Tetris.
You’ll also get Magic mode if you upgrade to the full version. There are all kinds of cool power-ups you can use in this game, such as mines that explode when they explode; bubble wrap that pops individual squares; and a magic crayon that draws whatever shape you desire.
Looks good, sounds horrible
Tetris is presented in an excellent manner. There are a number of colorful graphics and sparkly effects, as well as a number of crisp sound and voice effects. Unfortunately, the music in this version of Tetris is almost unbearable.
The game board could have used more screen real estate. It is likely that many users would have preferred the original Gameboy soundtrack more than the hideous remixes in this one
.As part of Tetris for Android, you have plenty of options for tweaking and the game keeps track of all your stats, so you can track your progress.
You should be aware that this free version of Tetris has access to a lot of permissions, including those that will allow it to directly call numbers and locate your position. This is not necessarily a sinister behavior, but it is always a good idea to check the Permissions in order to determine what the game is allowed to access on your computer.
There’s Tetris, so you know what to expect
A touch screen control system makes this Android version of Tetris easy to play and faithful to the original format.
