TET*IS GBA Review
TET*IS Developer - Sergej Kravcenko
Yep, you guessed it, its a Tetris clone.
I dont need to explain Tetris, because you have all
heard of it, and you either love the game or hate it.
This game is the best of the bunch regarding homebrew Tetris
clones (and there are lots of them!)
The main thing that struck me about this game was the absolutely
lovely music, its very mellow and soothing. It reminded me
of an Amiga style demo tune (however it does stop rather abruptly
before looping again).
Anyway on to the game itself, as you can see from the screenshots,
it looks nice, and it plays very smoothly which is essential
with this type of game. It has quite a professional look about
it, from the splash screens to the menus.
One main difference between this and other Tetris games,
is the backgrounds for each level, you start the game with
a blank background, and for every line you get, a line of
the background image is revealed. This is an excellent addition,
and keeps you going back for more. Images are mainly Manga
/ Fantasy themed (and no nudie pics unfortunately!).
The other gameplay difference is the introduction of icons
which do various things when activated such as speed up the
game, remove all blanks, etc
Tet*is saves your data to cart as you progress, and any backgrounds
you fully expose can be viewed in the gallery option at the
When playing this game on an emulator, you may get graphical
corruption at the bottom of the screen, this does not happen
when its played on a real GBA!
I liked Tetris, and I like this game, its a very competent
and polished product.
