Apple Games' latest feature drops in on Tetris for the iPod, one of a growing number of game titles available for the portable multimedia device. Like the many other incarnations of the ubiquitous game, Tetris for iPod offers the addictive and familiar falling block action fans of the genre enjoy. The Apple Games feature includes an overview of the game and a collection of tips and tricks.
The basic gameplay, however, is what you remember: Drop seven different types of pieces, known as Tetriminos, to the bottom of the screen, stacking them so they form complete lines across the playing field. Those lines disappear, giving you room to drop more Tetriminos. The game ends when the pile reaches the top of the screen.To read more click on the links below.
Apple Games: Tetris for iPod
There are three ways to play Tetris: Marathon, the traditional method in which you try to score as many points as you can in the game’s 15 levels; 40 Lines, which challenges you to clear 40 lines from the screen as fast as possible; and Ultra, in which you go for as high a score as possible in three minutes. The game keeps track of your greatest achievement in each mode, and when you start a new Marathon session, you can begin at any level you previously achieved.
No matter which game mode you choose, you’ll certainly give your brain a workout. In fact, one study found increased energy efficiency in the brains of subjects who played Tetris for several weeks. So now you truly can say you’re doing something important when you pull out your iPod and fire up a Tetris session.
