The Zone mechanic is a brilliant addition. Tons of modes for different moods and skill levels.
So much more than falling blocks How do you modernize an icon like Tetris? You leave the mechanics alone!
Tetris Effect is the same perfect puzzling we know and love, but so much care has gone into enhancing every other facet of the experience.
