Yes it’s finally back, another retro game of the week entry! Yay…horray….OK..seriously, this week we are going to look at a wonderful game full of magic and adventure(aren’t most games full of that and then some?) And of course tell you why you should check it out. After Gimmick! you had to think of more titles that made the NES a classic and which one made you think of the NES the most? Probably a game that wasn’t around for a while, Tengen Tetris. This game is very unique in a couple of ways. This version of Tetris is actually a lot better than the official Nintendo release. The game was only released for a short time so there are fewer copies than the millions of official Tetris copies out there. Did I mention it’s two players? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
If you want to play a good Tetris game for your old 8 bit friend then Tengen Tetris FTW! So there is not much to say….there are so many other Tetris games for multiple platforms, it’s the phenomenom that will never die but as far as the NES, This is a winner.
Check out this episode of Play Value as it talks about the history of Tetris!
