Tetris is one of the most renowned puzzle games of all time, simple to pick up and play yet limitlessly entertaining - and now the block-shifting blockbuster is back! If you've never played before, the idea couldn't be simpler; in standard mode, various, differently shaped blocks fall from the top of the screen, and it's up to the player to fit the blocks together to make complete lines, which will then disappear. As the game continues, the speed with which the blocks fall increases; once the blocks reach the top of the screen it's game over. In this version, though, Mario capers around various levels from the Mushroom Kingdom in the background as you guide the tumbling blocks to make them vanish from the screen.

You'll find specially designed Tetris puzzles that will test your ingenuity at clearing single player levels, plus multiplayer action and even a ranking system that means you can see how you measure up next to your friends. There are five new modes, themed around a famous Nintendo game, with The Legend of Zelda and Metroid just some of the classic titles making an appearance. Variations on the classic game include Push, a tug-of-war style affair where players "push" blocks onto their opponent's screen to pile on the pressure, and Mission mode, where you'll need to clear blocks against a time limit. There's also a slower paced Touch mode, where you can use the stylus to drag and drop the Tetriminos (the "proper" name for the blocks), carefully planning your moves as you arrange them into horizontal lines. For the definitive edition of the ultimate puzzle game including six times the fun, get Tetris DS!
  • Six different modes offer a new spin on Tetris' block-based action.

My mate use to have Tetris on the old Gameboy which we use to compete against eachother for the highest score way back in 1989. Being a Nintendo fan since the beginning with the N.E.S. I was really chuffed to see that Mario, Link and Metriod themes are mixed in with Tetris DS gameplay. There are six different game modes on offer here but normal Tetris is still the best mode. Each of the Nintendo themes has the original music of those games which is a nice touch too. Up to 8 people can play against eachother by just using the one game card if you know that many people that own a DS. The multiplayer is great fun and will last you ages. The only the bad thing I can say is that it is still really only Tetris and a game called Puzzle League DS is better which takes full advantage of the touch screen.

Two words: Fantastically addictive.

It's come a long way graphically from it's nintendo game boy days, but it's still the same old tetris - brilliant and... Brilliant!

 Great game for old tetris lovers!

This is an ultimate game for tetris fans and beginners with plenty of cool modes it is one of the most addictive games for the DS.
My only problem is that its so addictive that when your not playing you are thinking about how those mystical blocks fit together and even looking at objects in every day life and thinking "an L-block would fit there."
