[New Game] EA's Tetris Blitz Scores Worldwide Release, Uses The Long Piece In Celebration

[New Game] EA's Tetris Blitz Scores Worldwide Release, Uses The Long Piece In Celebration

Last month we let you know about Tetris Blitz, a surprisingly good update to the original falling block puzzle game that sadly hadn't landed on our fair shores just yet. Today Electronic Arts has expanded the game rollout, and it should be available wherever the Play Store is. Tetris Blitz is a free download for devices running 2.1 and up. You can play the whole game for free, but the standard currency-based in-app purchase model is present.

EA Soft Launches Tetris Blitz On The Play Store, Not Available In The U.S. Just Yet

If you like Tetris—wait, what the heck am I saying? Of course you like Tetris. Everyone likes Tetris. Disliking Tetris is like disliking ice cream, or baby animals. You like Tetris. And EA is about to make you a little bit happier with the release of Tetris Blitz on the Play Store. Though, this is just a soft launch so it may not be available in your area yet.

Globulous Is Three Measures Of Mahjong, One of Bejeweled, Half Measure Of Tetris, Shaken Over A Sphere

Globulous Is Three Measures Of Mahjong, One of Bejeweled, Half Measure Of Tetris, Shaken Over A Sphere

To call this game "Tetris on a sphere" would be a bit disingenuous. It's far, far more complicated than that. Tetris merely requires you to place falling pieces such that they create solid, dissolving rows and thus abate, if temporarily, the peril of becoming overwhelmed by the steady stream of burdens in what I can only assume is a clever metaphor for adulthood. Globulous, on the other hand, has a clear goal: clear out layers of the sphere and reach the prize inside.

Voxel Invaders Is A Galaga-Like Space Shooter That Thinks Two Dimensions Just Isn't Enough

Voxel Invaders Is A Galaga-Like Space Shooter That Thinks Two Dimensions Just Isn't Enough

You seen one top-scrolling space shooter, you've seen 'em all, am I right? No, as a matter of fact, I am not. Voxel Invaders is here to prove that. Take a look at the trailer below and you see that the game starts off simple enough. Some nice, 3D-ish graphics adorn an otherwise banal battleground. Or so it seems. Until around ten seconds into the video, when the world shifts and we see things from a whole new perspective.

[New Game] Doptrix Puts An Awesome "Twist" On Classic Tetris Gameplay

[New Game] Doptrix Puts An Awesome "Twist" On Classic Tetris Gameplay

Stanislav Merezhko recently introduced a game called Doptrix to the Android Market. I have to say that at first glance, I wasn't expecting anything brilliant. I was mistaken.

Doptrix turns Tetris-like gameplay on its head, literally. The game uses a familiar four-block shape pushing premise, but allows the player to turn, rotate, and flip the game board as they choose. The player can also choose when (and from what position) a shape launches toward the board.

All EA Mobile Games Just $0.99 Today For Holiday Sale

If you've been holding out on buying any EA Mobile games, today's your lucky day - they're all priced at just $1. Oddly, we've heard no official word of this from EA themselves (rather, just an anonymous tip), so we have no idea how long the sale will last. A look at the Market confirms it to be true, although AppBrain takes a bit to update, so only two of the four titles show the sale price as of writing.
