Pocket Gamer recently released a review of Tetris, the iPod version of the classic Russian block puzzle game. To win players must clear rows of blocks by correctly rotating and stacking shapes as they fall from the top of the screen. Pocket Gamer gave Tetris a score of 7 out of 10.
From the review:
So how does it work with the iPod's controls? Well, it's okay. Scrolling left and right moves pieces horizontally while they're falling, while the RWD and SKIP buttons rotate them anti-clockwise and clockwise respectively. The central Select button 'soft drops' pieces, speeding up their fall, while the Play/Pause button does a 'hard drop', plonking them straight to the bottom.To read the rest of the review click on the link below.
Pocket Gamer: Tetris Review
It feels a bit unintuitive. We wanted to use the Select button to rotate pieces, for example, and got a bit tangled up between hard and soft drops for a while. You do get used to it, and Tetris certainly isn't as hampered by the iPod's controls as, say, Pac-Man. But be warned, if you're playing this on a train journey for your first few games, you may end up swearing like a trooper.
