The perils of the Hype Train…

The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

iOS/Android Pick of the Week: Tetris Blitz

This week's selection for iOS and Android revolutionaries is Tetris Blitz, a casual, but deceptively deep remimagining of Tetris for mobile platforms. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to score as high as possible within the two minute time limit. Cascading blocks and chain reactions add to your score and multiplier, but by removing direct control over where incoming blocks go, Electronic Arts has rearranged the way your brain has to work in order to crush the tetronimo-spinning competition.

It also forces you to fight for every possible point, removing the reliance on strictly clearing four lines at once. Powerups and Fever Mode add to the scoring situation, but at its core Tetris Blitz is still all about lining up blocks and clearing them efficiently.
