I've played a fair amount of puzzle games in my time. Being a Tetris fan myself, I looked forward to trying this game. I was rewarded with a graphically rich, puzzling tour-de-force. As mentioned in the description, Wetrix seems initially to be an innocent three dimensional version of Tetris. Upon playing it for a while though, the pretty graphics and engaging music no longer hide the sinister nature of this very addicting and challenging game.
Gameplay is solid. There is inherent tension in the speed in which the game transpires and the types of events that occur with progressive pieces. Just when you begin to think you've gotten the hang of how to defeat the computer, a new challenge is thrown in your way. When the game seems almost too impossible to play, a new graphical reward or fun gameplay element is thrown in your direction to keep you interested in the game. It's very easy to lose track of time playing this game.
That's not to mention the excellent LAN multiplayer mode where you play alongside up to 6 other players simulataneously, further adding to the gameplay tension.
The graphics are smart, not overdone, and appealing. Sound effects and music add a lot to the overall gameplay. Not much is wrong with this game. Gameplay might border on too difficult at times, but otherwise, Wetrix is a solid game. Highly suggested.
Graphics: Very nice graphics.. crisp, detailed.
Sound: Excellent musical score.
Enjoyment: Extremely addicting, yet easy to get into.
Replay Value: This game begs for replaying as you learn the subtleties behind advancing through stages.
Wetrix is one of the most addictive arcade puzzlers I have ever come across. Although it was a big hit on the Nintendo 64, the first platform for which it was released, it unfortunately failed to attract avid fans when the PC version came out shortly thereafter.
Gameplay in Wetrix is similar to Tetris in that you must organize random pieces as they fall from the sky. However, the pieces here are red and green arrows, droplets of water, and special pieces. Your goal is to collect water by using red arrows and green arrows to raise and lower sections of the land. After an initial round of building blocks, water droplets will begin falling from the sky and you must place the water in an area where it will be contained. The game ends if you let too much water flow over the edge of the world or through any holes (caused by random bombs).
What makes Wetrix incredibly addictive is just not just its attractive graphics or unique concept, although it has plenty of both: it's the many subtleties and surprises that will keep you glued to the screen. Just when you think you got a hang of it, bombs fall from the sky to wreck your dams. If you try to solve the problem by creating tall mountains somewhere on the board for them to hit, you risk disastrous earthquakes (that happen when land is raised too high) that often spell "game over." Special falling pieces include ice cubes, which freeze the water, and fireballs which evaporate it. Pieces fall faster in higher levels, each with its own secrets and challenges (hint: kill the duck when you see it). There are also many ways to increase your score even faster, such as building multiple lakes, getting Rainbow Multipliers, etc. Overall, Wetrix is a must have for any Tetris fan. Too bad the sequel Wetrix+ was released only for SEGA's Dreamcast console.
This windows game is kinda clone of tetris but something completely different. In the game you'll get different kinds of blocks which you have to put on the gamefield: walls, water, bombs, firebombs, etc. Target of the game is to try to build walls in which you can store the water. As long as the water isn't spilling too much over the gamefield (leaks) the game continues. A bar on the right side of the screen will show you the status of the leaks. The game is very addictive and has pretty good graphics and real sounds (even voices :) ). Have fun!!
