n64gm158 - Developed by H2O Entertainment and Published by Nintendo of America Inc., "The New Tetris" was released for the Nintendo 64 (N64) entertainment System on August 2, 1999. From the same people that brought Tetrisphere 3D, this new version takes you well beyond all preconceived notions of the brain twister Tetris puzzle game and presents all new environments and exciting challenges. It lives up to its name, providing new play strategies where the key to high scores is in forming 4x4 Tetris blocks, while still completing lines as you did in the original version. The object of the New Tetris for N64 is to place the falling shapes into lines while leaving as few spaces as possible. When a line is finished, it disappears and you have more room to continue. Not only is the gameplay original and fresh, but the music is absolutely awesome. If you are in single player mode you play by yourself or against a computer opponent. In single player sprint mode you have 3 minutes to get the highest score. After every match your total lines cleared are added up, and when you reach an award amount, you will be presented with a famous monument, which you will be able to view in full 3D from all angles. In multiplayer mode up to four challengers can play this game simultaneously, and a tricky new option is that in four player mode if you clear more than two lines at once, your cleared lines do onto your opponent's board using "garbage." Whether you are a old school Tetris fan or a newcomer to the themed series, you'll love the different modes of play and challenges. The New Tetris will keep you occupied for hours trying to get a higher score in less time. A Great game if you are a Tetris fan, or if you want a great Multiplayer game.
