This isn’t the only reimagining of Tetris that’s launch lately. Last year, iconic designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi released Tetris Effect, which combined the tried-and-true puzzle gameplay with his own particular blend of audiovisual delights. It was soothing and peaceful, and basically the complete opposite of Tetris 99. If Tetris Effect was a love letter to the classic game, Tetris 99 is an attempt to turn it into a brutal spectator sport. Between the two of them, they show just how fertile the core of Tetris is for new game concepts.
