About This Game

Tetris Attack is a puzzle video game developed by Intelligent Systems for the SNES. It was modified for North American and European markets from the original Panel de Pon. In Japan, the Super Famicom version of Yoshi no Panepon was not sold at retail, but was released on the Satellaview satellite modem service. However, Japan did get a retail title with the exact same gameplay - Panel de Pon. This featured different graphics and music but was otherwise identical.

Despite the usage of the Tetris name, Tetris Attack uses a different style of gameplay. Instead of falling blocks, Tetris Attack uses rising blocks, which the player must clear quickly enough before the screen fills up. This is done by navigating a rectangle-shaped, two-block long cursor around with the d-pad, causing two blocks to switch positions if the cursor is on them or to move one block left or right.
