Good ol' Tetris comes back officially to the Play Store, simpler and better than ever

Shortly after the disappearance of EA's Tetris titles on the Play Store, the new mobile Tetris license holder N3twork has published a classic alternative. In contrast to its Tetris Royale that adds a 100-player mode and daily challenges to the classic game, the brand-new Tetris is as barebones as it gets.

EA ending support for its Tetris games in April

Almost a decade ago (!) in 2011, EA released Tetris for mobile devices, following it with Tetris Blitz in 2013. Being the only way to play "official" Tetris on your phone, the two apps have been extremely popular for fans of the classic brick-stacker game. Unfortunately, EA is ending its run with Tetris and will be abandoning the games in April.

Tetris Royale will bring 100-player online battles to Android

N3TWORK has partnered with The Tetris Company to exclusively develop and publish new Tetris games for mobile, and the first game that will reach Android is called Tetris Royale.

[New Game] 99 Bricks Wizard Academy Is Tetris In Reverse, With Physics, And Leprechauns, And Also Wizards

What happens when you turn a classic game like Tetris on its head? Usually you get a broken game, but in the case of Flash favorite 99 Bricks, you get a game that successfully mixes old-school elements with physics and planning to make something new. The mobile re-release adds a bit of story featuring wizards and magic on top of the Jenga-style premise, like nuts and chocolate on a surprisingly precarious physics-based sundae.

The objective of 99 Bricks is to build the tallest tower possible with 99 tetrominoes falling from the sky. Now, under the normal rules of Tetris this would be easy: rotate them all longwise, put 'em in the middle, and stack until you run out.

[New Game] Rymdkapsel Is What Would Happen If Starcraft And Tetris Had A Baby

I'm going to be honest here: after watching the launch trailer for Rymdkapsel twice, I still had no idea what it was about. The description says they you're trying to build a space station, but if that's the case, it must be one designed by Piet Mondrian.

The game is meant to appeal to real-time strategy players who like the base-building aspect of the genre, but prefer to avoid all that cumbersome combat. Which I suppose makes this something like Sim City. But for all its identity and pronunciation problems, Rymdkapsel is getting rave reviews after its debut on Playstation Mobile a couple of months ago.
