iPhone App Review: EA’s Tetris

iPhone App Review: EA’s Tetris

January 13th, 2010 by

The first thing that will catch your eye when opening Tetris, is the beautiful user interface that EA has developed for us! The game features two game modes, one is called Marathon, in which you try to beat all 15 levels. The other one is called Magic, which is also level based but you must clear a certain amount of lines to proceed to the next level.

Tetris Pros:

Tetris features many great things, such as the tools on the side that will help you on your quest to complete the game. They can destroy blocks with the explosive balls, redraw them to a different shape with the pencil, or pinch the falling Tetrimino with the compressor and turn it into one easy-to-place, Mino. The game also features the option hold out a block that doesn’t fit anywhere into your, and also shows you the next 3 blocks that will be coming. Also, an animated user interface, with great structure and very eye-pleasing. Much better than the old Tetris everybody has on their regular mobile cellphone!

Tetris Cons: The first con that comes to mind for Tetris, is the price. It is priced at $4.99, which is well above the normal price range for most iPhone apps, but if you are really a fan of Tetris, it is definitely worth the price. The game glitches a bit, when you have an incoming call in the middle of your game. That has been the only glitch I’ve noticed so far.


– Great user interface

– High replay value

– Features not included in traditional Tetris


– Price

– May glitch when you have an Incoming Call

– Memory consuming for 8GB iPhone

EA’s Tetris gets a 8/10 for re-inventing Tetris as a modern and fun game, and also keeping me playing the game for hours.

    Yes I would definitely recommend a free trial before you buy this one. Here is a tip: Let the blocks pile up on you and see how the controls work for you when the heat is on. If you find it too difficult to navigate the controls with that pressure, the later levels will definitely frustrate you and prove unplayable. If they work for you, go ahead and buy, because, it's Tetris.

    2D Tetris is definitely a classic (and an all-time favorite), but why not add a dimension and play Fragmental 3D instead? It's just how 3D Tetris should be — moving/rotating pieces, a camera you can drag anywhere, multiple "Fragment" sets, several gameplay modes, and online leaderboards!

    You can also get started with Fragmental 3D Lite for FREE. Look for Fragmental 3D on FreshApps!
