Tetris back on a Nintendo console, and in Battle Royale as well. Highly addictive fun, and runs smooth as anything so far.

I like it...

BTW, I noticed when I checked stats that it lets me toggle between "All" and "Tetris 99". This kinda suggests that more like this is on the way!

There will definitely be more game modes.

Lots of fun, especially if you get into the battle royale and start to strategically target people based on K/O stacks and such.

Really frenetic unless you luck out and get a game where people don't target you until the end for whatever reason.

Does anyone understand the rules? I've gotten to 10th place yesterday, but I still don't get what those modes mean: Random, Killshots, Badges and Counter. Obviously, Random chooses between the other three.

But what do the badges do? You can see them appear in the lower right as well as on other people's boards. What's the difference between Killshots and Counter? And how does that relate to the aim target you can move with the left stick?

Am I missing something? The whole targeting others, or getting dumped on by others, is not explained anywhere. I don't have much Tetris experience but I assumed the targeting was new for this game. Where can I get a bit of guidance on that, and why isn't it in the game?

As you delete lines and make combos you build up an attack. (And you also defend against attacks by delaying them this way).

Eventually that attack introduces junk lines on the game of your target.

If you're being targeted by multiple people then that's multiple junk lines coming your way at an accelerated rate.

You ideally want to finish off other players or mess them up to get them out of the way, but you also want keep a low profile just in case they decide to attack you back.

You can choose who to attack specifically with the left joystick, or let the game decide for you with the right joystick (that's the different modes you see on the top, it's just the targeting algorithm you can use).

@Delibheel Thanks for the explanation. So is this attack mechanic new for this game, or does it exist in local multiplayer on previous Tetris games?

I'm still burning from the apparent lack of in-game explanation. My first game, I didn't even figure out the controls for the first 30 seconds or so - I was trying to move pieces with the L-Stick and rotate pieces using L, R, ZL, ZR. God have mercy on the 10-15 players who were knocked out before I was in that game

I believe the attacking method itself is normal for mutiplayer tetris. This one just introduces the 99 players and targeting concepts.

You can see the controls in the options menu.

Does this game have a method to go against people on your friends list specificly? I'm part of a YT group and this could make for a cool video.

Nice >:]

I do stupid stuff on youtube.com/mysticbros, so check it out if your bored or whatever.
Or don't, it's your time after all.

Morpheel

Nope. It's you and 98 random people, and you don't know who they're until you lose and see their names in the list.

@MysticGengar Doubt it. Nintendo's approach to online multiplayer is generally "Friends are for keeping lists of, not for playing games with".

Well that sucks. I'm pretty sure more people would play if they could do practice matches and stuff with their friends, or maybe even que up with them while the rest of the room gets filled with their icon under them or something.

They'll probably update it later if it's popular enough. The game menus make it seem like 99 mode won't be the only mode.

So maybe later you will be able to play with friends. For now, however, it's just regular battle royales.

Got to 3rd place last night. This game is intense in all the right ways, and I love flicking the stick to change my focus. Very well thought out and probably the only Tetris where I felt the outline of the piece was actually helpful!! I usually turn that off, but not here, not when the heat is on. And my Hori D-pad joycon was a real blessing as I was playing in handheld mode the whole time.

@Delibheel Are you sure the four modes are just targeting? So it would mean that Random shoots at random people and Counter shoots at people shooting at you. Killshots tries to finish people close to being knocked out? And Badges aims for people with badges, I guess? That would make sense, actually.

Still not sure what the badges do for you, though.

pinta_vodki

Morpheel

Yes, you can actually press the same mode again to reroll. So in the case of random, every time you press that direction you get a new random objective.

I don't know what the badges do or how to get them. But I assume they mean the player is doing very well, so they become an attractive target.

No single-player Tetris, but this spin on Tetris is so much fun I don't even care. My best was 12th place, I'll reach top 10 eventually!!!

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill
