FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

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.
