An enhanced remake of the classic puzzle game Tetris in which you control the position and rotation of falling blocks and try to assemble and clear lines of blocks as they fall before the play area gets flooded.
The release doesn't make any changes to the original formula, but instead brings the game up to date technology-wise and features completely new VGA graphics and full digitized sound, with new backgrounds and tunes based on Russian mythology and folk tales.
Additionally the game features 2-player simultaneous gameplay, with both competitive (in two separate play areas) or cooperative (with two sets of falling pieces in an extra-large play area) modes.
Although at first glance this game might look just like another Tetris clone, it is not. As a matter of fact, it is the original! Alexei Pajitnov, the "inventor" of Tetris as we know it today returns 7 years after the original was first published and brings us a better, more feature rich version.
This was the first Tetris game that came with multiple game modes. You can choose between single player, cooperative, competitive, dual pit, and even head to head mode that allows you to play over the network.
The moment you start the game you will see a wonderful background that represents a historic Russian character or a historic Russian building. Each of these backgrounds are like a piece of art and each level of the game has its own. If soothing backgrounds aren't enough for you, rest assured that the music is just as enjoyable. As you might have guessed by now, it has Russian roots as well.
There is a wide range of options at your disposal using which you can fine tune the way that the blocks fall down, the available game time, speed etc … So, if you are one of the Tetris fans or someone that enjoys classic games, this fantastic game should not be missed!
Although Tetris Classic is little more than a fancy-rewrite of the original blockbuster Tetris, it does have many added features that make it a good alternative to the original, especially the stunning VGA graphics that brings classic Russian fairy tales to life as you progress through each level. The game also features traditional Russian melodies and a bevy of updated sound effects. Tetris Classic also allows players to play head-to-head with two game wells on the screen or in cooperative mode in one extra-large game well. Highly recommended.
