Tetris Effect is a modern day adaptation of the classic block-breaker Tetris that promises a number of new features to go along with a host of immersive 3D environments. Created by Rez Infinite (2001) studio Enhance Experience and Monstars, the game is now available on PS4, PS4 Pro and PSVR.
Tetris Effect touts over 30 different stages, each of them with their own music, sound effects, graphical style and background that all evolve and change as you play through them.
10 different modes should keep the block-stacking fresh, as you compete through a variety of tasks including clearing increasingly higher numbers of lines as fast as you can, earning as many ‘all clears’ and combos as you can before time runs out, and clearing as many of the dreaded ‘Dark Blocks’ as you can in Purify Mode.
Announced back at E3 earlier this year (on “Tetris Day” none the less), the game was named after the very real-world phenomenon where players continue to hallucinate ghostly imprints of Tetris blocks across their vision well after the console is turned off.
Tetris Effect is now live on the PlayStation Store, retailing for $40. The game is entirely VR-compatible, offering the full experience to PSVR players.
