The Best Tetris-Like Game on the AppStore

After searching for a game like Tetris, this is the best one out of all the ones I’ve tried. It’s sure to scratch the itch if you want the NES style of gameplay and also has modern game modes as well. Having no ads also really makes this the best game that I have on my phone. No in-app purchases either besides being able to donate which I think I’m gonna do when I get the money because this game is so well made. Also if you want some nice themes, you should check out the Harddrop discord server. Took me awhile to find some nice themes so thought I’d share that lol I do have one suggestion tho, for the gesture controls, the only option for a hard drop is to swipe up if you enable it. Is there anyway you could add the option to hard drop by quickly swiping down? Anyways amazing game! Highly recommend!

Fantastic Tetris Engine for Classic or Modern Players

This is a fantastic iOS version of Tetris for those who like playing Tetris on other consoles/PC, like Puyo Puyo, jstris, NullpoMino, etc.

There’s a nice and intuitive gesture control system for casual players, but of course there’s a limit to any conceivable gesture system, so more experienced players can connect a controller(or controllers if you have a friend beside you), use on screen key controls, or even set your own keybindings through a keyboard. I use a magic keyboard on my iPad and also have an 8BitPro Sn30 Pro+ controller. Both work with the game perfectly, but any other keyboard or mfi controller should work just as well!

There’s customizability in terms of enabling/disabling the ghost piece and setting opacity of gridlines. You can also change the appearance of the game through either downloading colored/patterned themes or customizing your own look from scratch.

The only areas of improvement I can think of are adding options to change ARR and DAS for players who are accustomed to very specific values. Otherwise, this is as close as you can get to classic/modern Tetris in the app store. Can’t wait to play this on my 8 hour flight next week! Thank so much for creating this.

Covers all my wants and needs for this game to be fun!

I wanted this game in a mobile version that could use a controller, and the most popular current iteration by other developers is swipe only. This fits the bill and is visually nice to look at too! I'm looking forward to trying other modes but for now I'm happy just clearing lines. This worked with my Xbox controller and my 8 Bit Do controller too on my iPhone. Different versions of the popular line clearing game have various behaviors, I'm still getting used to the no wall kick but it's still fun. I'm also happy data collection is minimal for this game.

Play modern modes for wall kicks :-)
