Description

Reimagination and a remake of the immortal classic. Arrange the falling pieces to fill up and clear the lines. Clear as many lines as possible to advance through levels or complete various objectives. This game is inspired by the four brick falling blocks games. But instead of easy four brick pieces, where the name Tetra comes from, this game uses five bricks pieces, thus the name Penta. Of course, you are not limited to either set of pieces. Play any combination you would like and consider more fun.

Fun question: Do you see the black dots when you are looking at the game title screen? Do you think they are there?

Features:
- Play an endless game or complete objectives.
- Play individual levels or progress through the campaign.
- Smooth and customizable controls.
- Various difficulty levels.

Controls:
The controls were designed to make the gameplay smooth and enjoyable. Below are the few highlights that make this game stand out.
- Tap with the second finger or swipe down to drop the piece. Of course, you can use the "Drop" buttons too.
- Swipe up to stash the piece and use it later in the game. This allows for more strategic play.

For people who don’t know the controls on mobile:

I’m not here to talk about the pros and cons of the game btw. Just here to inform people that to drag the Tetris pieces down quickly on the board, you need to use two fingers to swipe the blocks downwards. Hope this helped people that seemed confused with the controls :^)

Great game Only one issue

I would recommend that they add two things: 1) being able to rotate the pieces both ways instead of having to choose clockwise or counterclockwise rotation. And 2) being able to start the game at different drop speeds

Other than that, the game is better than the current Tetris app in my opinion because I prefer the NES version of Tetris. It’s just plain solo competition trying to get your highest score from banging out tetrises. I actually like the 5 block piece version as well, it’s challenging and a great spin on the traditional game. Rotating the pieces both ways would really take this app to the next level but it’s a very well done version of Tetris.

Frustratingly unresponsive controls

This isn't an inherently bad app. I miss the original Tetris app, the new one makes too much noise and there's no way to disable it except muting your device, which is frustrating because I only really play mobile games while listening to podcasts. This one fulfills the need for silence from the game, and I appreciate that. The issue is that the controls for moving the bricks as they fall is not quite up to snuff. The pieces skip entire columns on the board, repeatedly, and when dropped, they tend to slide over a square or two. Since this is a major mechanic of the game, it's more than a little bit frustrating.
