New updates have ruined the gameTetris wasn’t broken, why bring in power ups which have to be purchased? You can have multiple power ups in royal and defeat someone within 20 seconds. Was a very enjoyable game before this happened, and could understand the 5 game max when playing the free version because everyone needs to make money. But this has made it extremely unfair to true Tetris players..Version: 2.9.1

Bad controlsThis new app feels a lot slower to play than the old one, and it’s more difficult to soft drop. Please fix the controls responses.Version: 2.0.0

Oddly perplexingThe excitement starts at the beginning of the download to the game. You tap on it, and discover all the prizes and specialties within the game as you go along. But then the excitement stops when you realize after every game of Tetris, you have to go to the home page, then go and start another game, which means you have to watch adds over and over again. Enjoying Tetris? They ask after my 2nd day of playing this annoyingly perplexing game but I end up responding with a 3 star rating. Before you download the game, you want to understand the truth that is actually on it. With Tetris, where does one begin? Enter this world of confusion and you will be left with nothing but irritation and frustration. If you're hoping for the REAL style of the game, get something other than this app..Version: 2.14.0

This game is no longer tolerable.Game response is sluggish and I often misdrop because of laggy controls. I would tolerate it fine when there was prime time because of the chance to win money, but it’s so bad playing against other players that it ruins Tetris for me. If you use to play on tetrinet/tetrinet2, don’t bother with this garbage..Version: 3.0.0

Bad Tetris gameThis game is bad. The controls are bad there’s a lot of ads. and this game killed Tetris blitz my favourite game so don’t get it.Version: 1.0.3

Awful Representation of TetrisThis app not only is infested with advertisements, but also forces you to start the game from level 1, rather then letting you choose. Many people find starting at level 1 tedious and would prefer to start at a higher one. It also rumbles whenever you attempt to move your tetromino, which gets annoying fast. Another unpleasant feature of the app is that it takes an unnecessary amount of effort to get your tetromino to hard drop. Rather than a swift flick down you must go slowly or is does not work. Very annoying when you are going at fast speeds, and in general. The EA app was 1000x better, consider taking ideas from that gem..Version: 1.0.3

Awful representation of TetrisThe game has ads before and after each game, has a Tetris 99 knockoff that has inherently pay-to-win power ups and has the audacity to charge you 3.99$ to remove ads FOR ONLY 1 MONTH. This game single handily demonstrates everything wrong with mobile game monetization. If you’re looking for a good Tetris game try one of the dozens of knockoffs on the App Store because they won’t try to bleed you dry like this game does..Version: 3.0.1

Your update has just broken my heart. And game.I love Tetris. I love your nightly world game. But the latest update has made it sticky - there are glitches all over the place. You’ve also now joined the clan of money grabbing cynical destroyers... so we now are being offered special weapons at a cost, to make you money, and to mean at the last moment someone could win a tournament based not on skill but on the power up they’ve bought. It is BANG at the heart of what’s good about Tetris and your world game - anyone can win based on skill of the game. Now, anyone can win if they can afford it. Please. Please. Please. Take a look at the figures. Almost immediately royal has been filled with 50% players rather than full. Cynicism breeds cynicism. Hit reverse quick. Take less money now and get the longevity and commitment the game deserves..Version: 2.9.0

Needs changesI’ve been playing Tetris for about 12-13 years and the biggest problem with this game is it has a cap on the speed. I played one classic marathon, got to the max level around a couple hundred thousand points, then made it all the way to 2.4 million until I had to go to sleep. I tried to save and quit but it lost my progress. Could have gone on forever at that speed, really pointless to play. Then I tried the BR mode, and capped at level 15 again. I played a few games and won them all, but once me and the last few people were past level 15 for a good 10 minutes it became incredibly boring. I got to 2.6 million in BR mode, with one guy left finally dying at 1.5 million. The game felt like it must have taken around 30 minutes. I was also growing the lead but there was nothing I could do if he was just good enough to survive the game would go on forever. Also I’m not sure if I had died before him would he have won, or needed to get to the points I was at? I will not being playing this game until they remove the speed cap. My thumb hurts, I lost over half my phones battery, and it’s just a huge waste of time..Version: 2.0.0

Disgusting corporate garbageThe core game itself is fine, but you can clearly tell whoever produced this had no moral integrity and I sincerely hope karma hits all who were involved in the monetary decisions of this game. The fact that I can only remove ads for 1 month is disgusting. The programming has been quite clearly done in a way that will make it so players are skewed towards buying and or using their items. Save your money and time and buy Tetris Effect on console or PC which was made by a REAL developer who cares about their player base..Version: 3.3.0

RidiculousFirst off want to just say, I love the Tetris and have played it for many years. There have been plenty of iterations some good some bad but what it all boils down to is money... I actually don’t mind this game, could definitely have more depth but at the end of the day it’s Tetris and it works fine. What I don’t like is the fact that they are retiring the older EA version of this game for this. I bought the EA version of the game many years ago and still play it every now and again when I have to take public transport and now we have this new app which will give me an ad every time I play a new match? That is absurd. £4.99 to remove ads is a high price in what is a very basic game with no outstanding. As much as I don’t like EA I really hope I can still play the EA version when it retires offline or at least drop the price on this game down to old days where apps were 99p or even £1.99.Version: 1.0.2

Shareholders are happy, players are notThank you for ruining the game over the last few weeks! Now I finally have an opportunity to break my addiction and delete the app The power ups were a big sign the game was going in a bad direction and two weeks later Royale is completely ruined, impossible to win without paying for bonuses, making it significantly harder so you don’t level up as quick and you don’t get power ups from rewards unless you pay for them meaning you can’t win and collect rewards, I call it the EA cycle Well, at least the shareholders will rate this 5*!.Version: 2.11.1

Too many ads and removal of offline playThe only way you would be able to play this app without ads is to just turn off the wifi in your device. However they updated the app and changed it so that you MUST have internet to play. Now you have to play with 30 second unskippable ads between EACH game. However I must commend the game. The controls and fluidity of the block placement is good! And it is frankly a shame that this fun game is made u playable by the advertisements =\.Version: 3.0.1

Theme Idea and reviewI think the games great, it looks good, it feels good and not to mention.. it’s Tetris. I’ve been playing it for a while and i think it’s really good, I don’t really like the membership, a lot of games have one, and it’s usually to get rid of ads and gives you a skin. I hope that not all themes have to be payed for because I liked using different ones, it was nice. Speaking of themes, I have an idea for one. I was thinking of the theme from EA’s Tetris. I really liked the original Tetris for mobile, and it would be a nice throwback. In conclusion, you should definitely get this game if your already into Tetris or if your just starting to play..Version: 1.0.4

Micro transanction for a game like Tetris is a dicrease !!!I would not mind to pays this game 5 to 10$ , but no f... way ill pay micro - transanction by paying 2-4$ a day when you can play hundred of games on play now ( sony) or game pass ( from microsoft) for 6$-10$ a month ..... micro-transaction is the past , no one want this anaymore !!! Put this Tetris version with a price and remove ads ... microsoft and sony understand the futur of the gaming, you ... sorry but you live in the pass by asking money with micro transaction, this is a discrease for a game like Tetris ! Shame on you !!!.Version: 2.7.1

Fun but ruins game for skilled playersI love Tetris and have played it for a few years now and have gotten pretty decent at the game. I’ve gotten first in royal a few times and most of the time place top 10. Primetime I typical get within the top 500 globally and top 5 in my own region. My issue with this game is the power up system. The fact that they cost money and people can just buy them totally ruins the game for people who are actually good at the game. Because someone could buy like 50 of each if they really wanted and constantly send garbage to other players while getting rid of their own. And it makes it extremely frustrating and it kind of takes the fun challenge away from the competition. To me it’s become a pay-to-win game rather than a skill based game where you actually have to be good to do well. The rest of the game is really fun, just not a fan of the power ups. If you wanted to get money, I’d be a fan of seeing more backgrounds and icons for purchase instead..Version: 2.12.0

Too many adsI could maybe stand the 5 second ads before but now 30 seconds??? AND in the new update you’re limited to how many games you can play unless you buy tickets to play again. Deleted this app..Version: 2.7.0

Tetris royal is a jokeI’m a big longtime fan of Tetris, and I admit Tetris royal was fun... but that was before the addition of paid for “power ups”. Now Tetris royal is basically pointless unless you’re willing to shell out real money to compete..Version: 2.14.1

Nowhere near as good as the EA versionThe music is the regular Tetris tune but made to sound like a slow dreary dirge. The graphics are very uninspired and need a lot more imagination. The controls are okay, but overall this is a barebones and boring version. Developers, please play the EA on that’s soon to be retired and get some ideas on how to make an engaging Tetris game cos this is not even close. Wouldn’t take much to fix it tho - make the music more upbeat, get rid of the stupid 3D block effect and maybe increase the size of the play area so it’s not a small block in the middle of the screen!.Version: 1.0.1

Microtransaction messHonestly the game plays fine. But this a poor excuse for Tetris due in large part to the business model; and how's that business model informs design. How about a simple buy once paid option without any timers or annuity expectations. I'll consider it again once that is incorporated. Until then it's just another example of why iOS is a horrible message. My recommendation is to drop the iPad and go buy a switch..Version: 2.16.0

Ruined the classic gameI loved Tetris when I was a kid I would run the house out of AAs playing this for hours on my game boy. So naturally when I saw this on the App Store when looking for something quick and fun to play but this game is not Tetris. There is so many things about competitions and other junk but okay I thought there is a “classic mode” button great but oh no don’t think you can play without watching a myriad of adverts between every round. Sometimes 3 in a row. Okay I thought surley if they’re this hungry for money they will have a way to purchase no ads in the app for like £4 nope! At least from what I can see you can buy gems or whatever and god knows that they are for but no add free mode. The thing is I wouldn’t be that bothered normally usually these kinds of freemium trash businesses model I would just delete and move on with my life but the core mechanics of the Tetris in this game are good and the touch based controls are actually pretty decent which is why it’s such as shame it’s buried under all the ads and gems and other junk if they added a no ads in app purchase or a forked version of the game with just the classic game with no ads or other junk for £5 I would buy it in a heartbeat..Version: 2.11.0

Won’t let me play solo 3min challengeI watch the ads that come up every 2 seconds and then the game does not load. wish I could add a pic to this post. 🙃 don’t even bother with this game. It won’t work. Takes up too much. Time with ads and doesn’t even load..Version: 2.11.1

Ruined a good thing!For a mobile Tetris game I was surprised at how well this played, given the obvious limitation of no buttons. To my disappointment, the latest update added microtransactions to the single player and Tetris Royale modes which were entirely f2p before (with ads). On top of gating stuff now behind a predatory implementation of this new single-use or “Unlimited” 24hr ticket system, they have added an obnoxiously frequent amount of ads than what was in place before. The only free option to play after using up your tickets are to wait several hours to get a single ticket. I was fortunate enough to win a total of $4 last month but it’s definitely no coincidence that the prize pool for Tetris Primetime quietly went from $10k to $1k not long before this update. I get it. Money is needed in order to give it while also keeping the lights on, however, this ain’t it! The execution is unethical and poor at best. Tetris is such an easy game to monetize without sacrificing the ability to play (i.e. themes, block style, sfx, etc). Instead, they decided to go head first into the laziest option. I just can’t recommend this game anymore. It was fun while it lasted..Version: 2.7.1

Ruined it with the tickets, please change it backI really loved this game, one of the two games I have on my phone. I loved primetime, even knowing I’d never be good enough to do very well. When the first royale mode was around I was definitely much happier than the second, as it was just easier for me personally. But it wasn’t a big deal, I was still happy playing the game. The ads were annoying but manageable, although still quite often. I opened the app today so see the ticketing system and I am disappointed enough to be writing this review. Highly considering deleting the app altogether after finding out that I can’t even play solo games without spending a ticket. To the developers: You had an amazing game, and you’ve ruined it for a lot of people simply by putting this ticket system in place. I realize that these reviews likely won’t do anything but it really is a shame. You make enough money off of your ads, I’m sure, get rid of the ticket system. This used to be a very calming game for me that I enjoyed, I am sad to see that it can no longer be a game I play regularly..Version: 2.7.2

Latest update ruins royaleI got this game a few weeks ago, and really enjoyed the competitive 100 player tournaments, but since the latest update last week, it’s not fun to play anymore. The garbage rows don’t give you any ability to prevent or respond to them anymore, they’re practically instant, meaning most games top out due to garbage buildup rather than a lack of skilled play. I can only assume this is an attempt to push players towards buying power ups to remove and defend against garbage - a move I would expect from EA, but deeply disappointing for a long lived favourite. I can only hope this alienates others, as it has me, and TTC reverse this greedy behaviour..Version: 2.11.1

Awkward to playI adore Tetris. It has been a game that I have played and enjoyed since childhood. That being said, I used to have wonderful Tetris apps and this does not live up to them at all. The play area is tiny and located near the bottom of the screen. This makes it nearly impossible to drag down the pieces. It is terribly frustrating to play..Version: 1.0.3

Far too many adsThe ads and home screen ruin the game..Version: 2.4.0

Fix it.Every time I exit the game my saved game is erased. I got a high score and paused it to do something else and when I re entered it my progress and my score was gone. An hour of playing to be erased because I exited the game. A score of 1.6 million, gone. Fix it. Also remove the tickets they are stupid. 5 games and then you have to wait for hours just to play another game. The developers are just getting greedy for money now. It literally pay to play! What are you guys? EA? Just fix it. When I first downloaded the game it was just solo marathon. I would like it to go back to that. Less pointless modes or cash cups. I just want regular old Tetris..Version: 2.8.0

Why?When this game first came out, all my Tetris problems were solved. There were great themes, and each theme even had special music! I had to delete it because of storage issues, but when I come back, there is online multiplayer, and you just had to scrap all the good features that made this game feel like a huge game of bait-and-switch. Now when you play, there are no more special themes, no matter which one you choose, the pressuring Tetris theme remix is all you’ll hear. You can’t even use the themes offline anymore! You won’t even let us change the settings offline while really, REALLY pisses me off. I knew this game had room for improvement but I think you just made it worse. And what I meant about the bait and switch? You attracted people to download this game with these special themes and music, and once it finally boomed, you practically scrapped everything good and added stuff we never asked for. Please bring these old features back. The special music to each theme and the ability to use the themes and change the settings offline..Version: 2.9.0

Such a disappointmentI use to love this game but after this update it destroyed it. Ever since the app changed from EA games to you guys it’s been disappointment after disappointment. Let’s start with controls, ffs why does your app swipe up automatically when your just moving the pieces across the screen. And why would you ever make such a traditional game pay to win. This game has basically become a massive scam and what you pay for isn’t even worth it.Version: 2.9.0

Too many addsWay too many adds..Version: 2.14.1

Too many adsAds everywhere 1/10.Version: 2.0.0

Ad filled Mess and Unfair to BootAs an avid fan of Tetris, I thought I’d install this and have fun, however with all the recent changes it’s made the game frustrating and annoying to play. ADS EVERYWHERE, like you can’t play a match without seeing an ad before or after the game, this is especially annoying when it ends up lagging or you can’t exit out of it because of the ad’s close button being either unseen/too small, or the ad won’t even play. Now onto my biggest gripes with the game, the controls as well as the power ups and changes to garbage in Royal mode. I REALLY hate these changes, the power ups just give players who either pay of power ups or get them out of crates an unfair advantage, felt like a cute gimmick at first until you see that in the beginning of Royal, you get piles of garbage that incentivises the player to spam single lines to bully players. The fact they lessened the amount of garbage and how little time you can hold them before they drop is awful, a huge mistake in my opinion. Now to the controls. PLEASE FIX THEM, they’ve been awful since the game came out with constant missed fast drops and barely allows to the use of moving a block while rotating it where you want it to go, making T-Spins, Z/S-Spins frustrating to try and pull off..Version: 2.12.1

Crashes And Other ThingsThis game wasn’t what I’d hoped for. I’ve had some fun with it, but more than half the time when you open it or begin playing it will crash. The area to play Tetris is also quite small in comparison to my phone screen, making it hard to see. The controls are also laggy, which is game ending later on. Please fix these issues, as I love Tetris but can’t play with so many issues.Version: 1.0.4

Ad-tastrophyGameplay wise, this is one of the better Tetris games brought to mobile. Quickplay, Marathon, and Tournament are pretty fun, until the catch... The biggest issue with this game is all of the ADS. It doesn’t just feel like you’re watching ads more than playing the game, you ARE. Every single gamemode you play you have to watch an ad either before or after. This is especially annoying when you want to play Quickplay, it’s not very quick when you have to watch an ad every single time you want to play it. To add on to this heaping pile of ads, if you want to claim your Daily Reward, you have to watch AN AD YET AGAIN! I have never played a single game where in order to claim my Daily Reward I have to watch an ad. Of course the number of ads and when they occur is by no mistake, the Developers behind this version of Tetris just want every single cent they can squeeze out of you. The initial thought one would have after the number of ads is, “Why not buy the add-on to take off ads?” Well when your AD-FREE add-on doesn’t last FOREVER and you get to only keep ad-free for 30 DAYS, the purchase just looks so unappealing. This game could be so much fun, but in the current state it’s in, I’m just as better off if I were to watch ads all day long. In all my (short) lifetime, I have never seen such a money hungry and devious group of developers. And I thought other mobile games were bad! The fact this is an officially licensed Tetris makes it even worse..Version: 2.16.0

MehThe game is okay, all things considered. The elements of Tetris are there, but I will echo a few of the reviews in saying that the pay to win method of gameplay is tacky and unnecessary. Additionally, this game has repeatedly failed to save my progress after saving and quitting a game. I’ll return to the game later only to be forced to watch an ad, after which the game resets my (Classic) Tetris progress to 0. I wouldn’t have an issue with pay to win IF there were systems in place that helped worked around that style of play (if you could even call it that). But any opportunities to overcome that system, in addition to progress repeatedly being wiped away, are usually fruitless. The Battle Royale mode isn’t impossible if you invest enough time in other game modes to earn power ups, but the sheer number of people who simply pay for those advantages instead is off putting, making the Battle Royale mode frustrating and unrewarding. I’ll be uninstalling the app after writing this. I expect that the developers truly don’t care if one person quits their game, but hopefully this will give somebody else some guidance when.Version: 2.15.0

Commercialised garbageThis used to be my go-to mobile game, I played it on and off for two years..! So it was a simple app at first, just plain and simple tetris games. Nothing crazy, and it served its purpose sufficiently. Now, we have various in game currencies that i dont understand, you have to watch ads before and after every game, ad free option has to be paid for MONTHLY (not a one time buy), cant play offline, etc. The worst part is certainly how royally they've messed up Royale mode. Its very buggy and relies on purchasable power ups for you to win. So now intead of being a game of tetris its a game of who is most addicted to the app and has the most money to throw at it. Im so sick of corporations swooping in and ruining perfectly good games. please give me the old tetris back..Version: 2.12.1

Okay... I liked the ea version betterOkay, so in this version, there are no level selection, you have to start from level one and it’s so annoying. And 2nd, in the solo mode, the gameplay looks 100% Different! I think there used to be some lines in the ea version? idk. I loved the ea version more. Please make the level selection for a feature update! And add The All-New 2020 Tetris Theme Song. The new theme song is: Tyler Shaw - To The Man Who Let Her Go. I know it is a copyright song, but can you please add it for the next update?.Version: 2.0.1

SadYou also really gotta fix the games mechanics, and get rid of people that are cheating in battle royals, making it hard for other people to enjoy playing online. Like wasn’t that why the app was remade or whatever? PLEASE Don’t turn this into another ad fueled piece of trash on the App Store :) <3.Version: 2.7.2

Shameful adsThe ads are horrible. 30 second unstoppable ads all the time. Pause your game? 30 second unskipable as coming your way. If you play disconnected from the internet the game looks entirely different. Bland and boring. Did they do this to try and get people to play while connected to the internet so they can pump more ads down your throat? Probably. Not and epic gamer move 😔.Version: 2.6.0

Needs improvingThis version of Tetris definitely needs some improvements ASAP. Controls are great but the gameplay area is too small and scaled down, with the background taking up most of the screen space on my iPhone 8 Plus. It also lacks simple options that were present in previous versions of Tetris on iOS such as the ability to start a match on a higher/faster level in a Marathon game. An option to turn off the ghosting/shadows effect around the blocks would also be great as visual effects like these can be quite annoying..Version: 1.0.1

Tickets??Used to be a great Tetris game and I won at least $20NZD but the sudden addition of pay-to-play tickets has killed any love I had for the app. I spent hours in solo play and royale and now I can’t do that. It wasn’t even announced and even when you pay for tickets, you still get ads. Really disappointed because seeing Millen Baird every night at 9pm was such a highlight of my evenings..Version: 2.7.1

Built up good will to mask bad faithI’ve said to myself for the past few weeks that if the game wasn’t free it would be unplayably terrible because of their method of delivering adds. Finishing a royale game would deliver a video add you’d have to mute individually since they don’t give you the option to default mute. The way you found out you won a royale game was that you were given an add even though you weren’t even close to topping out. But now they introduced a “ticket” system for EVERY MODE OF PLAY. You have to spend one of only 5 tickets to play BY YOURSELF. The only way to play without having to spend a ticket is their “together” mode but they purposefully made it so you can’t play by yourself in a lobby. There’s also “Primetime,” where you supposedly play for real money, but the entire time they’ve offered it they’ve always made it sound so shady, like some hyped-up unwinnable carnival game. First of all, if you aren’t a literal grandmaster playing on a MacBook you have literally no chance of ever doing well in Primetime. That is all not even to mention that the background is a loop of a live action add specifically for Primetime and I just really want to ask whoever thought that was a good idea what the heck they were thinking. What makes it so annoying is that they had a relatively good thing going for amateurs and casual hobbyists but then they introduced these ridiculously broad pay to play features..Version: 2.7.0

So disappointing...This was a seriously good game, a massive part of my chill time in the evenings, but today I have noticed that they have introduced a ticket system, so basically you get 5 tickets, each time you play you use one ticket, but it takes like 4 and a half hours to get a ticket again, or you can pay actual money to get more. I would personally rather have the adverts, or at least give us a one time payment option for unlimited play, dread to think how much it would be considering you are charging £2.99 for just 24 hours of play. I’m sorry but this is ridiculous, I can easily sit down with my iPad on bosh out 15-20 games, I can see people boycotting this game now, I have already noticed people in the leaderboards scores no longer increasing, this really won’t do you guys any favours, if they get rid of this stupid ticket system and go back to the way it was I will happily change this review back to the best game on the market 5 stars, please sort this out..Version: 2.7.1

HmmAverage. Too many, like waaaay too many ads. So I paid for a month ad free. The app has just had an update and now sometimes (at LEAST once per game) when I try to rotate the pieces, they won’t move and it buggers up my whole game. I think I’ll delete it and use a different one. Disappointing..Version: 2.9.0

Goddamn, never thought tetris would become pay to play.Are you serious? i was fine with all the ads, but you go on add attempts? i can't even play tetris without buying tickets or whatever the hell its called? its tetris! the game mechanics themselves are fine but damn you guys are money hungry..Version: 2.7.0

Terrible & badly made! Hate it.I HATE this app. Tetris is a brilliant game. It’s one of the most successful games ever because there was never any faffing about. Open it, start playing. No frills or gimmicks. This though, is so irritating. If you’re connected to the internet, then you can’t just have a quick game because you just get bombarded with adverts even before you’ve played your first game. Then you go through the rigmarole of ‘collecting prizes’ once you’ve played a game. So, I try to play offline to avoid this rubbish bit by staying offline, the game then won’t load at all. It’s a frozen screen of spinning ‘circle death’. Why can I not find a simple Tetris game. With none of this unnecessary rubbish?!.Version: 2.11.0

Bring back the other oneThe whole game is horrible, it does a horrible job of trying to replicate how the old one looked. Everything down to the format, appearance and basic functionality of the game is so bad. The appearance of the blocks and backgrounds look like rip offs of the original Tetris game and they certainly don’t look good. The format is horrible there’s literally so much extra space but you give us this tiny screen that’s not even in the middle of the screen, I’m guessing in the future it’ll be extra space for even more ads considering the amount already in the game. Between every single round there’s an ad and in order to get rid of them you have to pay like 7 dollars Honestly would be better off just installing a Tetris rip-off because at least those games would have proper formatting.Version: 1.0.4

It’s aightThe old version was better where there’s no ads at all! But also always the same players wins as top players which is kinda unfair 😬🥺 Like how do they get 1mil + to 3mil + points tho? Tips?.Version: 2.3.0

Ads and required connectionI am a big Tetris fan. I downloaded it for a road-trip because to me it’s a good offline game. Until they updated and made a new game. This one got destroyed by ads when I was using my data and when they’re wasn’t any connection I couldn’t play because it needs internet unlike the previous version. Whilst the themes are cool and I have no problems with how the game is, I still believe improvements can be made.Version: 2.8.0

Too many adsDisappointed every time I go to play....ads, ads, ads. By the time I get through the ads my desire to play is gone. Brutal. Don’t bother. Delete..Version: 2.13.0

ReviewWay to many ads. Almost unplayable. Tired of these companies flooding their apple games with ads. Just make the games affordable and quality and maybe people will actually buy them..Version: 1.0.3

OririhrhrrotirjrjfirjjrodGameplay is decent, but the app force feeds you ads and it just all feels like a big money grab. They should just port Tetris DX..Version: 2.0.0

Pay to winBesides the normal Tetris which is ok, the battle royal is a pay to win because there are abilities that can in some moment just completely get rid of your chances. If you don’t pay for protection or more attacks your almost 100% guaranteed to loose. You can get these abilities normally but you have to sit through 2 mins of adds to get a small chance of getting an ability for free. I like Tetris, but not when it’s pay to win.Version: 2.16.0

Miss the older versionIdk man this one just doesn’t feel the same, it’s become more serious and more money related than actual Tetris it’s just kinda become more toxic.Version: 2.0.1

So many adsThis isn’t so much a game with ads as ads witha game attached. This is so obviously a cash grab that the game is now removed from my devices - even the paid option to remove ads is for 30 days only and even then there are still ads everywhere. All I wanted was a game to pass a few minutes here and there - much like Tetris on the old gameboy system not a cash grab with leaderboards and competitions. That this game is an editor’s choice recommendation really drives home that the App Store cannot be trusted anymore..Version: 3.0.0

New change to Tetris RoyaleI was enjoying Tetris if I had given a review before the change to Tetris Royale I would have given it 4 stars. But now they introduced the new system into Tetris Royale. It is no longer about being good a Tetris a good placement of blocks. But it is now about who is able to buy the most power ups and use them in the game. It is meant to be about who can play Tetris the best in Tetris battle Royale but now it is basically pay to win. Please fix this..Version: 2.9.0

I WANT TO SCREAMTeris used to be what I would play to relax me or something to do while I’m watching a show, but this god awful update won’t allow me to start at level 16! Now I have to start from level one every play and I swear I’m going to hurl this freaking phone at the wall! I know need a new game because I’m angry, my blood pressure is rising and this heavy weight feeling of a elephant sitting on my chest WILL NOT CEASE!.Version: 1.0.3

Now a pay to play 😡You now have 5 free plays that recharge over time, recharged by two plays over night. After you run out you have to pay 99p for 3 plays or £2.99 for 24hr unlimited plays. They also run at least one advert in between games sometimes even two. The controls seem to have changed since the paying version update, I believe to make you lose quicker or make a mistake so you end up paying. Very unfair game and pricing now. I would be happy paying an initial price for the game of say £2.99 but I feel as if it’s a rip off game now.Version: 2.7.1

Ads and controls.Tetris is Tetris - it’s fairly hard to make the experience unenjoyable if you’re already predisposed to liking the game. This app somehow works miracles, then, by utilizing Voodoo level of ads and consistently interrupting the flow of the experience. All the cliché mobile game tropes are present as well, including loot boxes, power ups, and tickets. To make matters worse, the ‘base game’ is limited to 3 minutes instead of a steadily increasing pace. I suspect the reason for this is because, while playing a knockout game mode variant (battle royale), the speed *does* gradually increase, and it becomes abundantly clear that the controls are not designed to accommodate this. You will turn pieces when you want to slide them, or drop/save then when you want to move them, and the speed becomes unforgiving quickly. This is a poor, hollow husk of the nostalgic experiences you may have had when you were younger, but if all you want to do is play some Tetris on the go, then this will suffice I suppose..Version: 2.11.0

Get rid of ticketsThe new tickets feature is pointless and ruins the game, this is classic EA. Putting money over creating a good player experience, I don’t want to be have to pay money for tickets so I can restart a game..Version: 2.7.1

This Used to Be So Simple and GoodI got this app before they added all the extra features like the Battle Royale, Primetime and whatnot, and it’s been a while since I played on the app but I came back to it recently and it’s changed so much. For starters, there are so many more features and what seems to be an always online functionality. Yes, the game will ask if you want to go offline when not connected to the internet, but immediately after “going offline” it says it couldn’t connect to the servers and won’t allow you to do anything until it does. I tested this on a plane and I couldn’t play a single game of Tetris. The other thing that frustrates me is how cluttered everything feels. They seem to have favored the money over the game because playing classic Tetris seems to be almost nonexistent now, replaced with all the battle Royale and other features. Back when I was first on the app, the only thing you could do was classic Tetris, with a few different themes and music. It was honestly great, and I wish they could’ve just kept that simplicity without adding all of the extra things. Or at least keep the simple classic game in the first place. 3 Stars might be a little generous..Version: 2.12.1

Great take on the game but awful executionI really enjoyed EA’s version of this game however I understand their contract ran out and it was time for a new developer. This game is a great take on Tetris however the controls are very sloppy and sluggish. It feels like every now and then a piece just slips and goes exactly where I didn’t want it to go. With this, the game becomes almost unplayable after so many levels, I’ve gotten to level 20 but it just becomes unbearably fast to the point where I don’t have time to execute how I want the piece to move. This begins around level 11-12. The ui is extremely small which doesn’t help. They could’ve easily increased the play area, especially the pause button. It’s extremely small and sometimes you have to hit it two to three times before the game registers that you want to pause the game. All the whole pieces fall and go whoever because you’re not paying attention trying to pause the game. Please fix this in future updates I’d like to continue playing but it’s annoying and frustrating when compared to the ea version..Version: 1.0.4

Just a downgrade from the ea versionHow the touch controls work where any input blocks other inputs, for example speeding up a drop and needing to lift the finger to do a hard drop instead of just sliding down, is far clunkier than the ea version and personally conflicts with my muscle memory from that version severely. Furthermore, the time it takes for inactivity to make a piece place has been reduced and there is now a delay in action between when a piece has been placed and when the next piece can be affected meaning that the pace of the game feels slower because the player is forced to wait a moment between pieces and it is very easy for the game to simply kill you as a result of this when rows are stacked up near the top. Moreover, in my personal experience the play area is unnecessarily small on smaller devices. Overall, as far as I am concerned this new official version for iOS Tetris fails its predecessor down to basic controls and feel not to mention the additional variety the ea version offered which is lost..Version: 1.0.3

AwfulI just want to play Tetris, not sit through scammy ads every 20 seconds. The reason Tetris has been popular for so long is its simple and fun. This app is the exact opposite. Don’t waste your time on it. Also, check the privacy policy. This app is trying to track everything. Deleted..Version: 3.0.0

Needs to improve level strategyLOVE the game of Tetris and have been playing since the early 90’s. This game is fun however past level 11, it become virtually impossible to puzzle the pieces together. Try adding more strategic puzzles to the levels instead of ONLY increasing the speed. The original game of Tetris was defined by its complexity of puzzles, not purely speed..Version: 1.0.4

Dismally bad presentation of a good gameThis is horrendously bad and has only gotten worse over the time I've tried to play it. Always online so don't bother trying to play without internet, and even when you do have it, the app is so slow you probably can't play anyways. When it finally starts up you're greeted with some dude screaming at you about winning cash prizes in a game mode you can't connect to. And on top of all that you have to fight through the UI to figure out how to play regular tetris, and not that survival crap or whatever other annoying game modes they have. And of course there are ads before and between every round you want to play. Want to get rid of them? 3 dollars a month. Now that would be fine if the rest of this app weren't such a sh*tshow, but I'm not paying a dime for an app that won't even let me play half the time because it can't connect so I can play a singleplayer game. This is an extremely frustrating app, I'd rather just pay $10 for a classic tetris app, but that doesn't even exist. I don't recommend this at all..Version: 2.12.1

Too many adsThere are just too many ads to make this worth it, and a five dollar a month fee to remove the ads seems steep. Id rather buy the game outright not pay every month.Version: 2.15.0

Flawed but has potentialI'm a big fan of tetris so I was pretty hyped seeing this on the store. But I can't help but be a little disappointed with how the game controls and how tetris royale plays. About the controls they're actually pretty good... for right handed people. Meanwhile for left handed people like myself it feels a little off. And I know there is a left handed mode but that's only for off screen controls. It would be nice if you could add some invert options to the game so your controls are a little more customizeable. Also having powerups in tetris royale, that you can pay for, feels super cheap. I'm not saying get rid of them but I think you should add a system that makes it more fair. Like maybe they can only use one of each powerup per round. All that out of the way I think, with more polish this game can be real good! Hope yall keep updating the game Edit: I'd like to add that the hitbox for the hold button is way too small please fix it and make it bigger it has ruined my runs multiple times.Version: 2.14.0

🤨How is it possible to make a complete shambles of mobile Tetris? Like this! Expects you to pay £4.99 a WEEK (yes, that’s right!) to turn off adverts and unlock a few avatars and one extra theme. No thanks, whoever is babysitting the Tetris rights at the moment. The playing area is way too small, with loads of headroom above it that could have been used to make it bigger. It’s also a generally clunky and unsatisfying gaming experience. One good thing I can say about it is that the vibrating feedback makes the game more tactile; this is a welcome development. The remixed music is pretty good but it messes around with the structure of the original soundtrack too much. Also, there is only the one choice of music, so those hoping for the classic 8-bit soundtrack will be disappointed. If you can still get the EA version from somewhere, whilst by no means perfect, it’s far better. Or, just stick to playing it on Nintendo’s various platforms..Version: 1.0.4

Massive downgrade compared to the betaThe app was released a little while ago in New Zealand as a beta and it was good... then they released it. Compared to the beta; • UI was downgraded • The gameplay/controls are worse • The win money game mode is extra buggy • The gameplay is less stable and will often hitch • The win money game mode is forced down your throat EXTREMELY aggressively • oh yeah did I forget the ads There weren’t any in the beta and now they are so obtrusive I had to check this wasn’t a dime a dozen Chinese knock off. Before I finish one multiplayer game and just jump right back in now I have to wait for at least 4 ads between finishing one game and starting another..Version: 2.0.0

Very very unhappyThis game used to be so much fun They turned it into a cash grab once it went international All of the og players no longer play which is a dead giveaway you sent the game in the wrong direction The og players built this game and we are the reason you had so many players back then due to spreading it through word of mouth and social media Please bring back your old Tetris.Version: 2.7.2

The game is good butThe sheer number of ads is insane. I installed the game, clicked to play classic mode and immediately was given two five second ads. I’m not opposed to ads in games, I get that this is how they make money. But I haven’t even played your game yet and I’m already presented with an ad?! I played two games and uninstalled, there are other games I can play where I’m not watching ads between every stage.Version: 3.0.0

AnnoyingWhat’s with the video of the guy talking went on and on couldn’t quit out will delete this..Version: 2.5.0

Bad replacement for a satisfactory app.Took the old app offline, and replaced it with this one. Every single time you start a new game of Tetris marathon, you are forced to see a 2 part ad. If you resume a current game, you are forced to see another ad. If you watch the ad, and decide 15 seconds in to restart the game, you have to watch ANOTHER ad to start a new game, 15 SECONDS after watching the previous ad. Furthermore, most of the ads have a “hidden” x button, and any clicking on the screen at all will take you straight to the website when you are just trying to skip the ad. To add to that, you can’t pay to get the ads removed indefinitely, you can only “subscribe” to get ads removed for a month. I’ve never reviewed an app before, but I was so disappointed by this that I felt obliged..Version: 2.15.0

So much adsI'm not paying 7$ for that. But maybe calm down on the ads between EACH game.Version: 1.0.0

Gone downThe game was great until the extra tools were introduced. Now it’s not about how well you play - you’re gonna get beaten by useless players who spend money buying extras. It’s completely ruined it..Version: 2.11.0

Ads cause issuesThe game looks nice and the controls are okay (sometimes they don’t react the way I want them to and cause me to misplace tetriminos). It’s a bit annoying that the default mode and the one that is displayed on the title screen is the 3-minute timed mode, I feel like endless mode should be on the title screen alongside it since it is the original mode. What irritates me the most about this app would be the ads though. An ad will play every time you start a game, which is a bit annoying on its own, but what’s worse is that after the ad is finished playing there is about a 30% chance of the app just freezing on a dimmed screen with no way to continue other than restarting the app. When this happens, if I’ve selected to resume a game, after I restart the app and go back in the option to resume my last saved game disappears and I am forced to restart and lose all of my progress. The game is alright but this bug needs fixing..Version: 2.12.3

Better but still needs improvementsSince my previous review it is a lot better, with two more game modes. I really enjoy the Royale and daily prize challenge modes. But there are still problems with the app... - It is still capped at Level 15, the blocks can be manipulated at the bottom before locking, and you can change your piece to the held one right before it locks, giving you extra time. All of these means that with practice the game becomes too easy. I just got a million points on Marathon and could have kept going if I wanted to. - I mentioned this before, but the NES and GameBoy versions of Tetris allowed you to choose your starting level in Marathon mode. Decades on with improved technology and we still can’t? If these issues can be addressed then the game would be fantastic..Version: 2.2.0

This game isn’t worth your timePay to win, too many ads and a “remove ads” purchase only lasts 30 days. Don’t bother with this game, it’s not worth it.Version: 2.14.1

Too many adsI can deal with ads but this is ridiculous, the only reason it’s still 4.1 stars is because of EA manipulating their ratings.Version: 2.14.1

Buggy and annoyingThe app opens with a generic white man talking at you, and you cant get rid of him, he takes up 90% of the home screen and will. not. stop. game is also laggy and weird, hated it so much i deleted.Version: 2.0.0

If it ain’t brokeWhy was the old Tetris app retired for this inferior version? There was nothing wrong with it. Why on earth does this game need to connect to the network?? Whenever I’m standing in a queue in a supermarket or waiting for a friend in a zone with no signal (which is a LOT) I just want to play Tetris, but I can’t because it has to be able to connect. What an idiotic idea. Where’s the offline mode?? Fix this absolute garbage version of this game. Hello? Are the devs reading this? I was sat in a hospital this morning for 3hrs without a signal or wi-fi & was unable to play a simple game of Tetris because, and get this, it needs to have a PERMANENT connection to a network! 🤣 There’s no signal you morons, disable this stupid ’feature’. Apparently you’re listening to feedback. I don’t believe you. TURN OFF NETWORK CONNECTION REQUIREMENT!.Version: 2.16.0

Garbage moneyYou wonder why Tetris is rated 17+? Because the Home Screen is a looped video of a guy advertising their cash prizes in “prime time” tournaments 24/7. You also need a tickets to play every single game including the singleplayer (1 free every so often, can store up to 5 max), with the other way of getting them being through in-app purchases. This must be the first time I am ever saying a game was much better when ea owned it, since before the only in-app purchases where for purely optional things like different music..Version: 2.7.2

Good but restrictedThe app is ok. However, since the update, it is constantly requiring an internet connection when opening, which I do not always have (I was also having issues with the other versions if I went offline for long periods it would wait at the loading screen). I’ve found the new update to be messy for players who are wanting the original Tetris gameplay. I would like to be able to open the app, press “play” or “single player mode” and then play Tetris. I’m not too sure if this app is going to seperate to be online/multiplayer and Singleplayer being a so different or not, however I feel this app is currently clunky and not a good experience for the single players..Version: 2.0.0

Terrible reconstructionUpdate: Glitches out all the time. Smaller screen then the original. Controls don’t respond as well and messes up your play often. A massive downgrade from the previous version. Seriously how do you make it worse?!?! It’s Tetris! EA needs to give up the rights to this game so someone else can it correctly. This is such trash and so frustrating to see Tetris treated so poorly and exploited by EA. The previous version was vastly better. This new version has a smaller screen to view when playing and is littered with ads. Two ads just to play a solo game! It’s insane, unplayable. Also there’s no option to just buy a version with no ads! The solo only goes to level 15. Just full of ways they try to exploit money from people. This kind of crap should be illegal. I hope this company loses its rights to Tetris so a better version can come to phones. This is the only version of Tetris available on phones. What a waste! Awful reconstruction. I wish they would just release the old version..Version: 2.2.0

It’s ok...As the title says, it’s ok. I mean it looks like Tetris and sounds like Tetris but that’s it. It’s a little laggy and it’s a tad boring to be totally honest. You have a main screen, choose your name, can choose a background/theme (including the retro classic 8bit sound and look) but that’s it. It’s just Marathon mode and the haptic response is no where near as good as Tetris Effect. It is colourful and I do like the Neon theme and I’m starting to like the toy theme too. The scoring doesn’t feel right and there isn’t anything special for doing combos, back to back Tetrises, T-Spins etc. The controls are either tap to rotate or swipe down for it to fall in to place. There isn’t a faster drop to save time before committing to the final placing. I will hold my hands up and say that I am a Tetris Blitz, Tetris 2011 and Tetris Effect fan but they are all 4*+ games because they have modernised from the original. I knocked another star off for the insensitive timing of the release. We only found out two days ago that the games from EA that we loved and enjoyed will be retiring in April. It’s not all doom and gloom. I am willing to change my review if and when more features are added in the future..Version: 1.0.0

What happened to the other Tetris app?This new app is terrible and is filled with terrible adds every 5min and promoting a prize pool competition to win money doesn’t seem legitimate at all, I will no longer be playing any Tetris on mobile ever again, you guys have ruined this bueatiful game in hot pursuit of money Reading others reviews just shows how much of a bad this company, no support messages or anything in reply just another pathetic service you just hope dumb people will use, you will never succeed with your garbage business model for this game Aswell you have a purchasable item for $5 or something for ad-free for 30 days, this is such a joke and I hope no one downloads this garbage.Version: 2.7.2

Need an account?I don’t want to crest YET ANOTHER ACCOUNT to play what is inherently a single player game. So I’m not creating one. Rated one star because it’s literally unplayable without creating the account..Version: 3.0.1

EA app far superior to this oneIt’s okay for what it is, ads are annoying and so is the cost for removing them. I am a huge fan of the old EA app and have been using it for 10 years now, very disappointed to see it forcibly retired now. I would be much less annoyed if this app was the same, in terms of being able to start at a higher level (I am bored at level 1). Please read this review and others like it and make this new app resemble the old one more! If I can play at level 16 I won’t mind paying to remove ads either..Version: 1.0.3

The Ads are ridiculously overwhelmingI get it ... we want a free game so we have to watch Ads, actually I don't usually mind ... HOWEVER this is taking it to a whole new level. The length of time an Ad takes and the number of times you have to watch one is ridiculous. I'll keep checking back to see if it improves, if not, I'll just be adding it to the old App junk pile..Version: 2.12.3

Ruined the game!Why did you add to the game. It was perfect how it was, now it’s just like every other mobile game in the world. Thanks Tetris for ruining it..Version: 2.0.0

Was very good before but now it’s trash.I originally got the game a while back and it was so fun. I loved the battle Royale type game as well as just going for a high score on my own and lasting for as long as I could. I was never really into Tetris before, but this game had me hooked for hours! That was until an update. I don’t mind ads because I know that this is a free game and that’s not my problem at all. My problem is the whole new changes to the game. These crappy boxes that you open and the tickets for games and you can only play for three minutes on your own. I can’t believe how they’ve ruined a completely perfect game! Everything was completely fine before! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! I saw the changes and instantly knew that the game was a goner. I’ll start playing again when you’ve brought all the old features back. No more tickets No more three minutes of play and get a high score..Version: 2.13.1

I just wanna play tetris man....So much ads. I would be willing to pay to remove them but you have to pay a MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION to remove them, complete BS. Also the game just keeps getting worse with every update, will the devs ever realise I just want to play marathon mode? You are better off just buying one of them tetris rip-offs on the appstore. Another thing is that you cannot play offline. It gives you an option to but will not let you on the app. Please make a better tetris app. I just wanna play tetris..Version: 2.11.1

Great game, shocking amount of AdsI love this game. It’s a nice little time filler but the amount of ads is beyond ridiculous, not to mention they taakke sooo looong to get through. One after every game is way over the top and the options to remove them are just plain, straight out greed. Try turning off the sound- not on the ads you can’t. Like the game but I think it has to GO.Version: 2.14.1

Get back to old school TetrisThe old Tetris was way better..Version: 2.0.0

No level 16 startI like the new design and veriety. But dont yo think at least you should respect the good players by giving them the chance to start the game with level 16 (or above) so that they dont waste their time from level 1 and get bored ? I like the previous tetris because you can adjust the level you want to play in before you start. This feature is also good to make our children play and also us (the advanced) play the hard levels right away. Please read this and update this feature asap..Version: 1.0.3

Can’t change start levelGood overall but you can’t change the level you start on like you could with previous apps which is very annoying to have to play the lower ones until it gets harder!! Please can you change this! Also the game doesn’t fill the screen at all which is very frustrating, it could do with being quite a bit bigger even if it doesn’t fill the screen..Version: 1.0.4

Basic and annoyingUnderstanding that EA lost the rights to this, it’s shameful that a money grab from The Tetris holding company would allow this basic app to replace the old one. What’s worst is that I won’t be able to play the old one that I payed for! If you’re going to replace the old app, at least provide one that is inviting and not half baked. You can’t up the levels it appears and the ads are ridiculously annoying. I can’t imagine anyone would want to upgrade with this being the initial incarnation. I would expect on IOS, with so many devices, surely it’s a no brainier to ensure that when you debut something new to replace something old that you have something compelling to keep the fans interested and content. What’s worst is to go ad free its ridiculously more expensive than old Tetris by EA and it seems like a hollow knock off..Version: 1.0.3

DisappointedWhen the game gets hijacked by greedy advertisers this is what you get. Ads woven into one of the best games ever made and when you get frustrated enough to try to buy the game the cost is ridiculous - a weekly cost to play that’s more than normal games upfront cost. A seedy, greedy disappointment of what was a once great game. Even the lame attempt at choosing a few backgrounds to pad out the tiny gameplay area is just sad. Pathetic..Version: 1.0.4

A yawn-worthy playable advertisementLooks like Tetris but like so many of these 'freemium' reboots of the original, leaves you missing the original gameplay and facing yet another 'BUY NOW!' popup..Version: 3.0.0

ScamYo! Second night in a row where as soon as I finish a prime time game it says something like I’ve disconnected from the server??? So I’ve placed no where! What is going on?! Also I haven’t won anything in like month and I’ve played better than ever. Get it together you useless bunch ! 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽.Version: 2.7.3

Not loadingI use to really enjoy this game but whatever update has been done has stuffed it up!! I delle Ted it the first time cos the comp time was inconvenient but I though I would try again, download the app today but it takes ages to load!!! Why?? Very annoying and disappointing!! ;-(.Version: 2.14.1

Only giving a one star cos you have to - I’d give it 0Like many other users, I love tetris. A simple game. But this app has made a simple downtime the most aggravating thing in the world. I have a feeling that they are making the game somewhat silly in order to make sure that you either quit early to start again, all in efforts to get you to watch a million of their ads. And you have to watch at least a couple at this point. It is a huge shame. Please avoid at all costs because you’ll end up watching more ads than you will be spending actually playing this game..Version: 3.0.1

Royale update disappointingYou’ve ruined a fantastic game... too many ads, Royale update allows more than one player to attack and block players out quickly, and now we need to buy tickets to play?? Sorry, but a classic, simple game like this is not worth constantly paying for to play. I would have been happy to pay once off for the app but not this... uninstalling and I will take my money elsewhere to buy a different game..Version: 2.7.0

Ad’s ruin the gameWas excited to see a new tetris game on the app store after the previous ones removal, but the insane amount of ads just ruins the experience altogether. there’s an option to to pay money to go ad-free, which only lasts 30 days and in my opinion is way too pricey- all the add-ons are. i like the more minimalist design of the game, and the music’s fun too, but it’s so hard to enjoy any of it with ad after ad playing after every single game..Version: 2.14.0

Really?Coming from the EA version, this version was like a breath of fresh air from something i’m so familiar with and I genuinely found it fun. The game only started getting better when they added tetris royale. This was probably one of the best versions of tetris i’ve played. Until now. The “ticket” system is honestly such a disappointment. So now if i want to keep playing i either have to wait or pay? really? it can be argued that “why should does it matter? it’s only £0.99 for 3 tickets.” it matters because.Version: 2.7.2

How many ads does this needJust every time I play there’s an add.Version: 2.7.2

What???Maybe I should’ve reviewed the original version a few months ago. I don’t make a habit out of writing reviews but maybe if I had it would’ve prevented these weird changes. Before it was a very simple and easy to play version of Tetris. Easy to understand. You opened the app and you could play Tetris. Honestly, that’s all I needed and I was perfectly satisfied with it. Sure, sometimes it crashed and sometimes the ads would randomly play with volume when my phone volume is off and I’m in a public place, but it was solid. Now you’ve gone and added all these modes. Not only that, but you’ve prioritized them over regular Tetris. Now I have to actively search for the option to play single player Tetris. I’ve never met anyone in my life who has thought “you know what? I could really go for a battle royale version of Tetris.” All of this extra stuff bogs down the functionality of the app, it runs slower, takes longer to open and bothers me about tournaments that I don’t care for. I just wanted some good old-fashioned Tetris. I’m sorry to be harsh but I miss the old version of the app a lot..Version: 2.0.1

Great game but too many adsI really like this official looking Tetris game but the big let down for me is the sheer number of ads you get. It’s like a 30ish second one every game you play. The real kicker is that to get rid of the ads, it’s not a one time payment, it’s something that only lasts 30 days. Other than the ads, there are a lot of different fun game modes and a bit of customisation..Version: 2.11.0

Overly sensitive swipeI find the pace of the app sluggish at times and as of the most recent update, it’s a bit too sensitive to the swipe up movement. Often it replaces a piece when I’m swiping to drag it left or right. Very frustrating! Also frustrating, the two adds per game..Version: 2.12.1

Performance issues and slight annoyance,I bought this game as I like Tetris, but it has problems - it has recently become glitchy and (prior to writing this) had crashed 4 times ☹️, and the performance/graphics are overclocking the CPU in my iPhone 7 causing its top half to become hot (assuming that is the area of the heatsink) to the point that I have to hold it in front of a fan to cool it down. Could you update it to fix these performance problems?.Version: 2.15.0

International sell outWas better when it was only in NZ. Sad for the sellout..Version: 2.0.0

Don’t like the new versionThe old version was so much better than this 😔.Version: 1.0.4

Ads can’t be closed! And so many of them!Endless ads destroyed everything.Version: 2.7.2

Ads, pvp, skinsIts fun but there’s too many ads, it feels like you cant do anything. If you want a gift, watch an ad, if you want to play, watch an ad. if you accidentally started the wrong mode and need to go back you need to watch an ad first, then quit, then pick the other mode, and watch an ad to play that. I wish there was a pvp mode without the power ups. Another issue I have is that some games I have no attackers, and the next I suddenly have two from the start. I’m not sure what determines that or how it works, but its hard to keep up getting tetris’d twice in a row at the same time, if they decide to use the power ups it’s an instant death right from the start, which has happened to me before. Another thing I have issue with is the previews for event skins. Soo, I really liked the way the valentines event “love letter” looked, it was so pretty with the roses, however the preview doesn’t show you *everything* so I didn’t know about the animations or the music. When I got it, I was disappointed by how terrible the elevator-ish music was and how distracting/hard it is to play when a million rose petals block the screen when you get a Tetris. The previews should be little videos or animations or even let you try it first so you don’t waste your time on getting an absolutely terrible background..Version: 2.15.0

The user interface is appallingI’ve been playing Tetris for well over 20 years, having started with the Game Boy all the way up to EA’s iOS version. When EA had to remove Tetris from the App Store due to the expiry of its licence, I was disappointed. I had reached a score of around 4,000,000 and, though touch interface was quite different to pad command, overall the experience was positive. On the other hand, this iteration of Tetris is aesthetically nice but it has an appalling user interface! By the time I reach level 15 I can’t physically control the movement of the pieces, nor can I flip the positions at ease. Often times the game doesn’t register my finger tapping on the screen and places a piece in an unwarranted position before I can do anything. Sometimes I’ll drag a piece across the screen using my thumbs and suddenly the piece will stop moving of its own accord. It’s literally like the pieces have a mind of their own. By the time you reach level 17 you’re basically fighting with your own thumbs to try and place a piece before the piece settles on its own. Make no mistake, I’m not new to touch-interface Tetris; I had no trouble playing EA’s version. But this version is just not enjoyable to play; often times I find myself feeling more frustrated rather than enjoying myself. Please fix the controls and make the game more sensitive to touch-control. 2/5..Version: 2.5.0

Pay to win, outrageous ad-removal “subscription”Royale mode seems full of people spamming bought-assistance items, which ruins the mode. As said elsewhere, the controls are finicky and result in drops in a place or orientation you didn’t want. The final nail in the coffin though is the advertisements before or after every game. These are too long and too numerous. In what I hope won’t be a trend, there’s an option to pay £2.99 for a month of ad-free playing. This is a step too far and I uninstalled what is otherwise a decent Tetris port..Version: 3.1.2

What did you do?I want to play but now all I get is some weirdo yelling at me? Deleted this after update 2.0.Version: 2.0.0

Disappointing and frustrating updatesI have been playing Tetris using this app for sometime now and I am honestly disappointed and frustrated with some of the additions. The most ridiculous feature they decided to add was actual the no ads feature, because it’s $2.99 for a month of no ads. The power ups for royales seem like a cash grab because earning coins to buy power ups seems near impossible. The chests, presumably where you’re supposed to earn coins to buy power ups, mostly spit out tickets and so if someone really wanted power ups, it’d more worth their time to throw money in to buy coins. The royale feature can be fun but it’s overall turned them game into seeming like a cash grab. Along with all those frustrations, the past two weeks or so, unless I am opening the app from a notification for prime time, the app takes longer to load than any other app on my phone, especially if I am loading it up without internet connection. I should not have to wait over three minutes for Tetris to fail to load on my phone when I’m trying to play offline..Version: 2.11.1

Not so good right now, but Im hoping it becomes really goodIts definitely new and satisfying to play, but it does not really live up to Tetris2011 which is going to be deleted :(. It definitely has alot of potential; I would like to see updates that make gameplay fun and interesting, but keep the classic tetris feel without too many complicated gamemodes and whatnot..Version: 1.0.1

Update bugsSince updating on my phone and iPad there’s a really annoying glitch. The blocks sometimes just move to the left for no reason. Not worth playing if I can’t control the movement. Loved it before so it’s a bit disappointing..Version: 2.9.1

DO NOT DOWNLOAD. NEW UPDATE ADDS PAID SUBSCRIPTION.This, for the short time since it’s release, was the best Tetris option available for the modern smartphone. Straightforward, classic Tetris gameplay with no strings attached. However, since the most recent update, the developers have decided to take an active leap backwards by including advertisements not in the initial release, and a weekly (WEEKLY!) five dollar subscription for the “convenience” of playing without the ads.l they decided to include post-release. I understand that the mobile gaming market has become a cutthroat enterprise, where those who throw their hat into this ring are going to want a guaranteed return on their investment, but surely there were other ways to consider monetizing this product before settling on one of the most scummy, deplorable business models on the mobile platform. As a matter of principle, I will be deleting this game from my phone and I will not touch another product developed by this company..Version: 1.0.4

Trash +5The ads ... don even download this.Version: 3.0.1

Ads are a killerGreat gameplay love the game, little bit tricky to get used to since no keyboard & buttons. Main problem is the ads, it’s insane.. after 1 game a ad comes up every single time, not a quick ad, a 30 second + ad And it’s $10 to get rid of ads, not forever ... for only 30 days. That’s ridiculously Expensive up your game Tetris..Version: 2.12.1

Money grabberIn Tetris battle royale, the game mechanics are designed to destroys you unless you use a lot of power ups - which cost a lot of money. Ruined Tetris for me..Version: 2.13.0

Not My TetrisI love Tetris and I can play it for hours to pass time, but they’ve ruined this version. You use to be able to play classic Tetris and the ads weren’t even much of a bother, but now the only way to play is with people or a quick game for 3 minutes. I’ll try to keep this review short, but I’m seriously frustrated by this version of Tetris. I just want to sit back and play a game of Tetris to burn time and see how long I can last. Now my only options are a 3 minute snore-fest to see how much score I can work up by the time it’s up, and cluster **** 100 player mode that is anything but satisfying. I just want my Tetris back. I don’t want a game that’s begging me to hand it cash every now and then. I would be willing to pay one flat price for a mobile Tetris game on my phone but the only official option I have is an ad-infested, money-milking, piece of crap that’s not worth my time anymore. Not my thing to write reviews, but this was the only game I cared to have on my phone and now I’ve been brought to the decision to delete it..Version: 2.12.1

FrustratedI like the interaction of this version of Tetris. However, compared to other versions, the sensitivity is terrible — particularly when the blocks get close to the top. You can change the sensitivity in settings but I’ve found this is more relative to swapping out the blocks not reacting to spinning/rotating the blocks. $4.00+ to remove ads for 30 days? Why not option to get rid of all of them. You also used to get rewarded for watching the videos. Nothing now..Version: 3.0.1

Such a shameI used to have the older version of mobile tetris on my phone for a good few years until they made it obselete and unable to run, in favour of developing this cluster**ck of a ‘tetris’ game that follows all the same boring and annoying mobile game tropes, like gems and coins and powerups Even being able to find how to play the classic tetris mode is hard enough, and understanding all these new game modes is not what tetris should be The charm and ease of use of tetris is gone, my favourite passtime has been reduced to nothing more than a bland, emotionless husk of what it used to be.Version: 2.13.1

Way too many adsWay too many ads. One ad when I open the app would be fine, but two ads before and after each game? Nope! I deleted this after one day..Version: 2.12.3

The ads make this utterly unplayableIve never seen an app require you to pay money on a monthly basis to stop ads from appearing. Im not paying a subscription fee to stop ads from playing on a freaking puzzle block game, I don’t care how intentionally irritating you make the experience..Version: 2.15.0

Absolutely ruined by ads.I gave up before even getting to play..Version: 2.6.1

Worst TetrisTried playing offline. Didn’t work. The game just stayed on a black screen. And you can pay 3.99 to remove ads, but only for 30 days. Why can’t I have an option for paying to remove them permanently?.Version: 2.14.0

Great app in the beginning. Not so much anymore.I’ve been playing on this app for over a month. I was enjoying it so much. However, after this new update that included the boosters, every time I play the pieces coming down aren’t easy to control. When pressing to change their position, it doesn’t do it straight away. It’s slow. I have looked at my settings and they haven’t changed at all. Something needs to be done about that ASAP. Im not even playing with 99 players anymore. I’m lucky to go against 30 right now..Version: 2.9.0

You ruined Tetris with greedThe games amazing, but now you only get to play five games then you have to wait like in Candy Crush. Before there were never tickets, you just paid for ad free and played to your heart’s content, I know I was there. The contests are cool, the online mode is entertaining, but now you can’t even play all you want like before and now you have to pay to get rid of ads AGAIN AND NOW ONLY TEMPORARILY!!! This has got to be the worst strategy ever for a game since it wasn’t done from initial release. I can’t enjoy it anymore, and I’m not wasting more money on it for tickets for the entertainment I had for the original price that I had already paid in the past! If you guys are so hung up on trying to monetize Tetris then design some cosmetic level styles and sell those, keep the old styles free, make different ones, and charge like 1.99 for each cosmetic. Not charge individuals who’ve had it for long while and already paid before just to pay again just to simply play now. This is totally unethical and as someone who loved this app, I am not supporting it any longer..Version: 2.7.2

DisappointedThis is a very poor implementation of Tetris, it doesn’t play as smoothly as EA’s did when they had the licence. I just popped in to play the Tetris app I had already purchased years ago and have been playing on and off all these past years only to find it’s been stolen from me due to some extremely unethical licensing restriction by Tetris Holdings. When I say smooth, I mean, dragging Tetrominos should be smooth rather than so jaggy quantized to placement positions across the display. On drag, it snaps for too long at each block position for at least three or so frames before moving to the next block position on finger drag. The blocks should follow the users finger exactly to allow for ultra fast play. If this is supposed to be the official app, then please try and at least make it play like a Tetris game. You have some big shoes to fill N3TWORK. Unbelievably disappointed. Nathanael.Version: 1.0.4

Only one change required!Can you please make or at least have the option to change the colour of the pieces in the “next” column to their actual colour and not just all the same colour? When playing fast I look for what colour is coming next so I don’t get confused between the L,J and S,Z blocks. Other than that a two player battle mode would be a nice addition..Version: 2.9.1

Pretty funI enjoy this and it does it pretty intense when I play solo Although I try to play offline but it just tells me to connect to wifi. Which was annoying since I used to be able to play offline..Version: 2.10.2

Terrible controlsWhilst the game is good, very pretty and with a not so offensive to the ears sound track, the user controls are utter garbage. There comes a point in the game, usually toward the end of the game where you physically cannot move, rotate and hold separate pieces within the given time. Obviously, with the game being on iPhone I know that it has its limitations, but the controls just feel clunky and slow to react to inputs, just feels horrible and makes the game frustrating and not enjoyable to play. Coming from an avid fan of Tetris over the years, this is the first one that I can say I will not be returning to in any sort of hurry. Plus this weird sort of loot box system they seem to have going on, which effectively now makes the game pay-to-win, completely ruins the competitive aspect of the BR style gameplay. A few things definitely need to be addressed to keep people interested in this game. Overall a poor version of the game on the iPhone..Version: 2.12.1

TerribleEverything about this version of tetris is bad. it makes me feel nauseous..Version: 2.12.3

Better than nothingNot a shadow of the original now (sadly) discontinued Tetris. While it’s much improved from a very disappointing launch it’s still slow and unresponsive, inconsistent - particularly at higher levels - and its ability to save games very hit and miss. That Australian fella’ rabbiting on is a pain I could do without as well. Still it’s better than nothing and well done to Network to keeping Tetris fans at least partially happy. I’ll keep playing cus’ I love it but a few more tweaks to get it comparable to the original would be very welcome. As a long time Tetris player I’ve tried to be generous about this app, but I’m sorry, it just gets worse and worse. It’s slow, unresponsive and it cannot move pieces at the speed required for higher levels -infact pieces often respond in ways completely different to the command. Riddled with ads and useless competitions and bs I’m sick of it. If you’re a real Tetris fan don’t touch it with a barge pole. I’ve deleted it as a waste of time..Version: 2.9.0

Where’s the lines count?Great game, needs more skins and the ability to see the line count! Please.Version: 1.0.1

Don’t botherThe amount of ads is unbearable, even trying to start up the classic Tetris mode forces you to watch an ad. The ads themselves are awful too, often being shady, misleading ones. The royale mode is a waste of time too, summing up to be not a battle of skill, but of who saved up enough power-ups or sank enough money in them to win the match. When you can use the 3 power-ups to get rid of the bottom 8 rows, get rid of the garbage sent your way, and also send 3 rows of garbage at your enemy and increasing the amount sent form you in quick succession, it’s no wonder people that don’t appear to be review bots rate this game low. The music is unpleasant, the controls are shoddy as well, being to close together and being unresponsive as well. There also seems to be times when the game will do something I didn’t want it to, like during a royale match the blocks I was placing dropping suddenly when I didn’t press the button for it to fall. You’d have more fun buying a Gameboy online or finding one, finding a copy of Tetris for it, and playing it on that, or even on any other platform besides this app. Don’t waste your time or money, and just pass up on this one..Version: 2.16.0

Poorly built gameThis game does everything it can to get you to spend money. Horrible game play..Version: 2.8.0

The ads...The game is great but forcing me to watch 2 ads before and after every game is ridiculous. I would be happy to pay to remove ads completely but you charge 2.99 to remove ads for 30 DAYS ONLY!? are you serious? What sort of money grabbing bs is that. Either allow the user to remove the ads completely or not at all. Please allow us to pay to remove ads completely..Version: 2.14.0

Literally Pay To Play...While some games have advantages given to those that pay for specific in-game items (like Clash Royale), Tetris gives you 5 games with the 5 tickets given (a new addition to the game in the previous update) and to get more tries you need to pay real money! For more tries you are required to pay a minimum of $3. This ticket gimmick is in all modes (except for the local multiplayer mode) which limits the amount of players in the Tetris 99 mode which was just revamped and in turn completely ruins the mode. I have been playing with my friend for the past few months trying to improve our scores but now we are limited to around 5 games per day. It takes 3-4 hours for 1 ticket! This is outrageous and completely unnecessary. This game was amazing until this update and I hope it gets fixed..Version: 2.7.2

Worst version of Tetris I have ever playedI was so excited when I found out that EA no longer had the rights to the Tetris mobile game and that there was a new one. I knew nothing about the developer n3twork but I am a huge fan of tetris and have probably put in something like over 800 hours into the game over my lifetime, so I thought making a version of Tetris that could disappoint would be very difficult. Somehow this app managed to disappoint me nonetheless, which I really have to give it props for- I didn’t think that was possible. This app is a complete failure with some of the worst slippery and imprecise controls, trash music, and worst of all A PAY TO WIN SYSTEM. I’m not sure why anyone would add pay to win power up mechanics in a game that would be otherwise so perfectly balanced, but once again the game industry proves that it will always choose profit over making a decent game. The game isn’t enjoyable at all especially when you realize other players can give themselves an extreme advantage just by purchasing power ups. This is once again another decent game ruined by money hungry executives and it shows how soulless this industry has really become. This app especially when compared to the old one is a failure in every way and I think the entire development team should give up because they somehow managed to be more money hungry and soulless then EA..Version: 2.12.1

Don’t bother - crashes constantlyDespite some successful initial plays in the app, having had it for a few hours it’s now really buggy. It either crashes at the ad before I’ve played anything, or after one game when playing against others. Doesn’t matter how many times I quit and refresh the app, the problems persist. The paid version might be better but I don’t want to take the risk. I’m surprised an app with so many simple problems is being promoted on Apple’s home page. Such a disappointment!.Version: 2.12.1

What happened to thus gameDoes anyone else remember the time before we were instantly given 10 rows of grey blocks instantly for no apparent reason other than using one of the ingame boosters to save you until another 10 rows of grey blocks came and instantly failed you.Version: 2.12.1

New update is terribleThe hard drop before lifting finger has completely ruined the game. It drops it when I don’t want it to unexpectedly. I used to be addicted to this game but now I can’t even play it once. I’ve tried getting used to it but it is so annoying. Please change it back to how it was before or at least have a settings option where I can turn it off!.Version: 1.0.4

Love the game, a few drawbacksThe game is great and I really enjoy the way it’s been made more competitive. Unfortunately (I think with a recent release) the controls have become quite laggy and unresponsive (can’t turn or drag or fast drop easily) which is quite problematic as the speed or competition increases. The ads are a pain and, like other reviewers, a permanent ad removal purchase would be a great option..Version: 2.14.0

Too many ads, play area is very small, players should be able to play using a remoteEvery single time I’ve lost a game was due to thinking I’m pressing one of the onscreen buttons, but in all reality turns out I’ve been missing because the UI and the rest of the play area are both unnecessarily small. As of now I am using an iPhone 11 Pro Max, but the play area is smaller than my little brother’s iPhone 5c. I don’t have the greatest vision which makes this problem a bit more frustrating, but I think there should be an option to make everything larger. I currently struggle and feel very uneasy with the given controls and would very much appreciate if players were allowed to use a remote as I’m sure the game could be played with fewer mistakes. I would also like to ask for the option to have a different menu background rather than hearing the guy talk as soon as I open the game. The last thing this game needs is to cut down a little on the ads. There’s usually somewhere you would go to remove ads, and I’m not sure if there’s a spot I missed, but I’d definitely buy that in a hurry. Other than that, I think this game could be a lot better with these changes. I really love this game, but I will unfortunately be taking a break until at least one of these features are implemented. I hope this game grows and I look forward to rating higher soon..Version: 2.5.0

Shouldn’t lose tickets for games you never get to playI’ve been trying to play the competitive games, but you get only five tickets that reload slow,y, and I keep using a ticket just to get into the lobby of a game that I’m kicked out of before I even get to play due to connection issues. Other times I play a little then get disconnected. I don’t think you should be charged tickets to play games that you don’t get to finish naturally..Version: 2.7.2

Jesus H touch controlsTouch control do not work for a precision puzzle game like this. Add or subtract sensitivity you want, there will a moment where at a critical moment your piece will just drop for no reason and end your run. Of course there are ok screen controls but someone made the terrible decision for having it just be a d-pad set up where hard dropping a piece is up. UP ON A D-PAD TO DROP A PIECE. Do you not understand basic human nature? Now this a mobile version I understand, if the control were just a little finicky, I’d be able to accept. But this is mobile Tetris so there’s all the terrible trapping you’d expect from games as a serve BS. Annoying ads, terrible UI, pointless gates to gameplay modes, and somehow they messed up the Tetris music and I can find no way to change it. If you’re gonna put a pointless currency in this game at least let me grind to get a half way optimal experience. Or how about don’t and play a game who’s design doesn’t fundamentally conflict with the IPhone control scheme. TL;DR: It’s flawed from a fundamental level and all the other mobile garbage makes the experience even worse..Version: 2.9.1

TrashThis game used to be one of my favourite apps before all these updates happened. I used to really enjoy playing this game daily but now especially with this new update using the tickets to play only 5 games at a time on single player and multiplayer and then waiting to play more games or buy more tickets is actually incredibly disappointing and incredibly trash especially for a game like Tetris. DELETED.Version: 2.7.0

Deleted due to so many adsDeleted this app today because the adverts in between each game are ridiculously long. Most Times there are a few adverts back to back which means I’m sitting there what seems like forever waiting to start again. When I press X on corner of advert to delete it, it takes me to the App Store to download that random game! Only reason I am deleting it because of the insane amounts of lengthy adverts which are pointless to me..Version: 3.0.0

No more primetime, multiplayerThe older version is much much better! i don’t know what to do with this app anymore other than bore myself with the game itself. they remove the battle royale and primetime very disappointing.Version: 1.0.4

Great if not for overuse of ads, and stupid new ticket systemI want to love this game. It’s a great touch implementation of Tetris, but they removed the purchase option for ad removal, so ads are now unavoidable and annoying, and now hey have a ridiculous additional ticket systems which limits how many free games you can play, even after watching ads. Super disappointing. Please just let me throw money at you to play a game without these stupid F2P money-grabs..Version: 2.7.1

This game sucksThis game has too many ads.Version: 2.12.3

New update is HELLISHLY BADHoly crap I don’t know what they did recently but this relaxing app that occasionally had too many ads has been turned into some sort of garbage spammy cash money tournament with solo play buried in the bottom and then throws you more ads after you’ve already viewed ads to get into the app in the first place. I can’t believe I miss the EA version of Tetris but I really do..Version: 2.0.0

Not really goodFirst objection : The tiny box in which the game is played is ridiculously small. Why didn’t they use the whole screen or at least bigger part of the screen?! Second : There is a lag in response to commands. This is tolerrable, although irritating, during early stages when the action is slow. As the game accelerates, it becomes a dealbreaker and I cannot recall the last time I did not quit the game disgusted. How can anyone make a game like this with such a bug?!? Not recommended. I wish I could find my old Tetris again..Version: 1.0.3

WhyThey keep adding more and more micro transactions and similar BS like tickets, coins, stars and power ups. i literally just want to play tetris. ads are intrusive, game is incredibly slow to load and it’s becoming purely pay to play. they don’t even have an option to purchase unlimited plays. the only nice thing is the visuals; the controls are pretty intuitive but not sensitive and precise enough even if you adjust them. i am unreasonably upset at this tetris app.Version: 2.10.1

ConflictedThis is a great app and has provided many hours of great gameplay. However, I am very, very unhappy and disappointed with the app’s inability to retrieve saved marathon games. With scores upward of 2 and 3 million it is extremely frustrating when saving such progress then attempting to continue on to beat high scores, only to find the game freezes for 1 minute, runs the same advertisement that it always runs, then begins a new game. This needs to be rectified to prevent people from deleting the app out of annoyance..Version: 2.14.1

Ticket system will kill this gameComing from someone who only plays the offline modes on this game, this game was great at first because of how much better it’s controls were than any other mobile Tetris game. But this new ticket system literally puts a limit on how much I can play this game. I’ve gone from playing 7-10 games a day whenever I’d like, to only playing 5 games that I have to strategically spread out in order to be able to play it all day. This is not sustainable because the reason I’m playing Tetris on mobile is for the convenience. Putting a limit on how much I can play destroys that convenience and will simply cause me to find a new way to play Tetris, rather than pay to play more on this app. I think many other people will agree with this statement. This ticket system was not thought out as it not only kills the major reason use this app, but also limits how many ads that you guys get from the game. If I play less games you guys get less ad revenue. That ad revenue will not be made back by people paying for the game because those people will simply find another place to play Tetris. This new system was put in place without considering any of the things that made people use this app and will 100% kill this app if it is not removed.Version: 2.7.0

Tickets?!I’ve been playing this game for months. The Royale mode is my favourite feature, and what I spent most of my time using. To suddenly put it behind micro-transactions is disgusting. I know there needs to be revenue but I would have happily paid to have ads removed because I really did enjoy this game. Garbage..Version: 2.7.0

Awful mobile experienceThe touch controls for this game are so awful that you might as well be playing the classic Tetris. None of the new Tetris things work. The difference is that this Tetris is full of ads and has Millend Baird constantly telling you about the Tetris competitions going on. I do not understand why any competitive Tetris player would be playing mobile. Tetris would probably control really well with a keyboard and mouse, though for all I know the pc port of Tetris could be completely awful, too. This game isn’t completely terrible, but I think it deserves no more than 3 stars. Tetris on its own is good, so all of the extra stuff here does nothing to improve it. It all makes sense for a pc game, but not on mobile. I feel like most mobile users would prefer to just buy Tetris for 1 or 2 dollars and play normal Tetris without interruptions. The online stuff should stay but it shouldn’t be shoved in the faces of people who just want to play the regular game. Overall, you need to learn a lot from Tetris for the Gameboy..Version: 2.3.0

Game was good until they started running adsI see ads, I delete wth happened a week ago there was no ads . You guys are greedy I uninstalled this trash app . I don't support greedy developers and neither should you ..Version: 2.2.0

Royal mode is flawed... the rest is ok if a little buggySo, score is meaningless in Royale mode? So you spend 5 mins just waiting for the difficulty to increase to something engaging. I can beat 50 people after 5 mins with a score <1000 by letting pieces slowly fall and clearing the odd line... meanwhile people go out with a higher score than I will ultimately get .. but I beat them? It’s just not Tetris. 😋 If score is meaningless remove it from royal mode (and maybe start it at a higher difficulty (save us all several minutes if nothing)... this isn’t a big deal - just a bug bear.. ... then there is the issue of the Royale leaderboard... its more ‘efficient’ to simply block out as fast as possible and collect the points and start again.. 🧐 The rest of the game is ok.. sometimes oddly slow to load and lags a bit at times but not too bad.. (may be my phone with deteriorating better).Version: 2.2.0

Too hard to operateAs with any other Tetris game I’ve played on iPhone/iPad it’s just too difficult to operate it on a touchscreen - easier on a game pad controller back in the days....Version: 2.12.3

Absolute disasterI don’t write reviews, and yet i’m here. this should explain how frustrated i am with this version. i used the EA version for years, and loved it. bought the ad free version happily for a few bucks. that version is now unplayable, completely wasting the money i paid for that version. downloaded this one, hoping maybe i could carry over my ad purchase, only to find you have to pay BY THE WEEK to get rid of ads. absolutely INSANE pricing. i dig the visuals and it’s snappier, if laggier and slower to load. i liked the battle royale mode, before again finding that it is absolutely ridiculously pay-to-win. no matter how well you do, someone who guys powerups with real world money is just going to obliterate. just a disgusting level of monetization here. 2 stars for the effort put into the presentation. overwhelming updates that make the game slower, some of the worst monetization i’ve ever seen, and downright unfair gameplay made me uninstall. stay far, far away from this. break out the old gameboy instead..Version: 3.0.0

Too slowLevels feel slow, make it like other Tetris games. Level 1 hard drops shouldn’t take at least 4-5 to level up..Version: 1.0.3

Sad state of modern gamesThis is a good version of Tetris, sadly let down by intrusive and deceptive ads for other games, ie: clicking the 'close' button actually starts up a demo version of the game being advertised. And the 'remove ads' option only removes them for 30 days, after which you have to pay another £3 or the ads come back. And there are still some ads even after you pay to remove them. Surprisingly long load times too for a simple game..Version: 2.13.0

Very slow & crashes all the timeI’ve always loved Tetris and have been enjoying this game for a while. I find the game itself quite enjoyable, but I agree with most of the reviews talking about the excessive ads. They’re all terrible and makes me want to close the game as they’re annoying to watch. Recently I have also found the all to be very, very slow. It crashes constantly when I’m mid-game, and is especially annoying when that happens in the middle of a Royale. Fix this issue please, I want to enjoy the game but it’s getting to frustrating to play..Version: 3.0.1

TOO MANY UPDATESSick of the stupid inconvenient random updates all the time. Last useless update has caused screen glitching every time a line is cleared. Also Tetris aren’t as slick as they think with the controls sticking sometimes in primetime, probably so they don’t have to pay so many people.Version: 2.11.0

Awful controlsLove Tetris generally , quite like this app and the idea of winning money (have won some over the last few weeks ) but the thing that lets this game down is the controls , starts off ok on the slower levels but as soon as you get to the slightly faster levels the controls become very laggy to the point you cannot control the pieces at all , totally ruins the game and makes it impossible , have just played the latest update that said performance improvements , well I don’t know what performance was fixed but it Certainly wasn’t the controls , absolutely awful.Version: 2.5.0

Um..This was a great little game when I first downloaded it, it was free with a few ads, but suddenly before and after each game an ad runs and you can’t even see your score afterwards!! So you never know how far you got sometimes (it’s pretty hit and miss) But now, they’ve introduced tickets?!? So you have to pay for tickets or wait a lot to play and still have adverts and limiting who can play without playing? Maybe fix the problems this game has before monetising it into unusability.Version: 2.7.0

U could make it goodBringing back Tetris was an awesome idea. However, the controls don’t work properly, and make you mess up so you can’t do as well as you should be able to. In fact, the controls are worse than they were in the original - and that was over 30 years ago. There’s no good reason whatsoever why this should be the case..Version: 2.7.2

How to ruin a nostalgic game in under 5 minutesAllow me to preface this by saying I don’t write reviews often. At all, really. But I had to for this. I’ve loved Tetris for years, played as a kid and still play it now, and thought this was gonna keep that nostalgia running. Great graphics, decent controls, seemed fine. Then you force me to watch an ad... Before every game I play? Of basic Tetris? Not a chance. I’ve never deleted an app off my phone as I did with this - what an insult to the beloved game..Version: 2.13.0

THIS IS THE WORST GARBAGE I HAVE EVER SEENWow. A shocking example of corporate grubbing for money. Terrible, terrible, and terrible. I love Tetris, but this is a disgrace. Stupid boosters and power-ups like candy crush, 25 second long ads, and worst of all, they don’t even have the original game!! You can’t. Even. Play. Infinite. Tetris. Omg. That is literally what the game is!!! So instead, you can play a round with a 3-minute limit where you have to get a good score, or a glitchy, laggy, insanely difficult “100 person Tetris royale”, which isn’t even remotely fun. The controls are garbage. Drag an item to one side? Well, if your finger slides just a little bit over, the piece will move across 3 columns. Once, when I was testing out the horrid 100 person royale, I dragged a piece down to place it faster. When it landed, it glitched over to the other side of the game, ruining the layout, which was suddenly followed by three gray rows suddenly being randomly added, which happens erratically with no pattern or signal in sight. Just terrible. IF YOU ARE SEEING THIS, AND THINK THAT IT’S NOT SO BAD, PLEASE, I BEG YOU, DO. NOT. DOWNLOAD. THIS. GAME!.Version: 2.10.0

Worst app everThe developers have ruined the game by forcing in an ad every 5 seconds. They should be ashamed of themselves, nothing but pay-to-win, ad full garbage that no one should download. Can’t even play offline as they claim you can... nothing but hate to the developers.Version: 2.12.3

We are not living ATMsWhen the game can out three months ago it was great. Had the option of a one time purchase to remove ads. Now as of the latest update they added a “Premium Tetris” which is $8 a week!! All you get for that is no ads (some people already had this from the one time payment), a new skin, and three, that’s right THREE, avatar icons. I’m sorry but no game is worth over $400 a year. Especially when there are cheaper/better alternatives. Show power with your wallet, let apple know we don’t want any more game companies doing these stupid payment options which are downright ridiculous..Version: 1.0.4

Why would you ruin the game??Ok the only time I play Tetris is in the subway when there’s no signal. It was fine until today, they would pop up a window saying “cannot connect to internet” every 5 seconds to disrupt the play. I mean dude, WHY WOULD YOU NEED INTERNET TO PLAY TETRIS?????? Not to mention the unbearable trashy 30s ads oh boi, the developer must really love $$$.Version: 3.0.1

ReviewI think you should do two minutes instead of three and more shapes otherwise you’re cool..Version: 4.0.0

Pay to winI was really enjoying this app when it first came out. It was fun and relaxing. The battle royale feature was one of my favourite play modes where players try to out last each other. However, recently the game and their developers has become more obnoxious and extremely selfish by making this game pay to win. Player’s need tickets in order to play, power ups that are purchasable are implemented in competitive play and the annoying Never ending ads. This game has disappointed me..Version: 2.12.1

This game crashes all the time, especially just as you are about to join a gameIf you want a nostalgic tetris game that reminds you of your youth this is perfect, as it has all the bugs you would come to expect to have just like your old cartridge did in your NES. Be prepared as you are rejoiced to see there is friendly competiton only to be thwarted with ticket/tokens to play against other live players but beware as the game will randomly disconnect you just as you are patiently waiting for the lobby to fill up and the countdown is initiated. Then BAMM you are booted out and lose a your chance to play... Now this has happened to me on more than just a few occasions while looking forward to Primetime and preparing myself too, I am rewarded with an ejection just as Millan Beard is saying “primetime starts now” I used to enjoy this game before the ads were pushed and I am not sure if the game is lost in translation but I fear I may not rejoin this worldwide epic saga of tetris, for the game is just like any other over crowded app with not enough bandwidth to handle. I will say it was fun while it lasted..Version: 2.7.2

Battle Royale now unplayableOne of the few game modes I liked in Tetris was battle royale mode you play against up to 100 people and you play till your the last person standing, nice and easy. Then to spice things up another player could sabotage by sending garbage your way and like wise as you clear more lines and more combos you send garbage to your foes, a nice change. But now they added power ups. Now this is what breaks things. normally you can buy power ups with coins you earn in game. Cool and all, but what if you pay cash money for it. You get tons more of the power ups. One of the power up cos the ability to toss 2 or 3 lines to your opponent and you have to either clear it away quickly or use. Shield or row remover power up. And there is no cool down so you can toss 3 or 4 power ups and can blockout someone with in seconds. And you see how your opponents screen looks you can tell they was using them and not attacking with skill. Now I understand they need to make money. I just wish there was other ways.......Version: 2.12.1

Great gamePoor game play.Version: 2.0.0

Good game with some super annoying flawsI’m going to keep this short, I have nothing to add to the positives said about this game, it’s a solid Tetris app for killing time on your phone. My problems revolve around the games inability to handle your phone doing anything aside from Tetris while playing. I’m on an IPhone XR, and when I’m in marathon mode or Tetris Royale, the game will lag a horrible amount, borderline freezing for a short period of time, whenever I get a notification from another app. This makes it almost impossible to play the game in the faster speeds because if you get one notification, the tetrimino will have fallen on its own by the time the game can recover from this attempt on its life. A smaller gripe but more understandable, when I’m wanting to manage a notification, I have to swipe down from the top of my screen, and this will almost always drop the current tetrimino on screen. This isn’t an issue in marathon mode, I can simply pause, but if I’m in a Royale or in the Prize games it can really mess up what I’m doing if I need to check what the email I just got is for. Simply making the top 5th of your screen not be affected by swiping would be a clean and easy fix to this..Version: 2.2.0

Update ChangesI was hoping that the purchase of ad free would be added to the game as an option and I’m glad that it was even though I don’t love that it’s only for 30 days but I get that you have to make money. What I wish hadn’t been implemented was the ticket system. I understand why one might limit entry into the Tetris Royale with tickets but it just seems greedy to include the solo version in the ticket limits as well. What’s the point of playing Tetris if you can only play 5 games and then have to wait another 6 hours or whatever it is to play again or you have to consistently fork out money to play. I get adding some form of monetisation outside of ads but the way it’s been implemented seems greedy and that’s not something I like saying as a game designer because I know that you need to make money but this just rubs me the wrong way..Version: 2.7.2
