Tetris may be the best selling videogame of all time – but it’s never really been able to mark a decent mark and hit heights on the uber-modern consoles of today. TETRA’s Escape is here to bring about a change, bringing a unique twist to the block laying genre.
Acting as a platformer of sorts, you will be taking on the challenge of traversing 64 levels of increasing difficulty by shape-shifting Tetras into the Tetrominos that we are all familiar with, in order to save the Tetras and bring them home.
Reflecting shapes, undoing moves and of course transforming into a different shape will be key when forming bridges across platforms and progressing through each level. In some areas, using a number of the flat Tetrominos may be a good idea to reach a certain area, but forming a set of stairs in order to obtain access to an area up above may be needed at some points, for example. As you can imagine, trial and error will be brought out in abundance when tackling the trickier levels, and being able to undo moves will no doubt come in useful.
TETRA’s escape may not seem the most out-there of titles, but adding in gravity changing areas and the like will freshen up the puzzles. And besides – Tetris was never going to win awards for ambition, but that never stopped it!
If you wish to purchase TETRA’s Escape on Xbox One you can do so for the low price of just £3.99, or alternatively you can pick the game up on PS4 and PS Vita (with the PC and Nintendo Switch versions releasing very soon).
TETRA’s Escape is a platforming puzzle-game all about blocks. Blocks named Tetras and it is down to the players to all that they can, to save them and make the most out of their special ability. Via the means of shape-shifting, Tetras can turn into different Tetrominos and used to fill holes and master puzzles, in an attempt to reach the portal on the other side of the level. But, don’t just go expecting a linear adventure, as sometimes crafting a staircase to the heavens is the only way to make it to the end, so if you dare to dream big and go block mad, you might just have what it takes to bring all the Tetra’s back home!
