Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Review Review

I’ve played the game a lot since then, scoring as high as 26th place. I haven’t won a Chicken Dinner, but I have gotten more into the game of Tetris itself. I don’t think I ever really understood it as a kid, but now I kind of enjoy the rhythm of fitting shapes together, which I guess is why the original game got so popular in the first place. I found that I was happiest playing the game when I just ignored all the buzzing and lasers and just focused on my own game of Tetris. Check the circled player who was KOed in 89th place on the right side of the screen. If you don’t realize this is happening, you will waste a LOT of garbage blocks.

Each level also has a 3-star objective system, which you earn a star for completing each of 3 different objectives in a level. These vary from defeating your opponent within a certain amount of time to earning a certain amount of points. Some of these objectives can be tough, but I found myself replaying some levels to attempt to get that 3rd star. It took me about 6 hours to complete story mode, but I didn’t 3-star every level. Puyo Puyo Tetris is both a Puyo Puyo game and a Tetris game.

Destiny 2 has even gone free to play, so new players can take to the story in three-player co-op, attempt raids as part of six-man squads and takedown randoms in PvP without spending a cent. Nintendo’s subscription service, called Nintendo Switch Online, is needed for playing a few rounds of Tetris on the computer online play with multiplayer games, but not for locally-played games. If you’re playing with friends in the same room or locally between Switches, you don’t need Nintendo Switch Online. But, if you’re planning on playing with friends anywhere else, you do. Fans and newcomers to the Mario Kart series alike will never get tired of Mario Kart 8. The game’s dozens of tracks are excellent, and local multiplayer with four players can get crowded on a smaller TV, but this Nintendo Switch game is fantastic.

Tetris 99 Switch: Rules for How to Play Battle Royale

I took advantage of this and used it as an opportunity to amp up my skills, but some players will probably just want to throw in the towel. Also, in my experience I found that Puyo Puyo players seemed to be at an advantage over Tetris players, although I can’t definitively say if it was due to my lack of skill or a genuine imbalance within the game. What I do know is that despite some of these hindrances, I had a lot of fun online and will continue to keep coming back to it for quite a while. The characters for the game are modeled after the seven tetrominoes, the classic puzzle pieces from Tetris, which gives the game a unique feel. Along with its colorful look and cute characters, the game has a ton of modes to offer! Along with the Adventure Story Mode, there are six solo arcade modes and six challenge modes as well as Puzzle League and Free Play!

You level up as you play, but outside of the number next to your name going higher, and the icon representing you changing at certain tiers, the progression isn’t particularly rewarding. The overall scope of the game is limited, but it’s engaging enough to keep you coming back for more. The random nature of who you are competing against leads to frustrating rounds where you get unfairly decimated within the first few minutes. An overwhelming number of lines can get dropped on you at once, and even if you were playing well, it can knock you out. Thankfully, jumping into a new round is relatively quick, so you won’t feel the sting of defeat too long.
