What more can one say about Tetris? The megapopular classic '80s action puzzle game from Russian programmer Alexey Pajitnov is now available for the iPhone, featuring everything you loved about the original, and some added bonuses to keep the game interesting. The game is crystal-clear with Retina Display support and the simple interface requires only swipes and taps on the screen to move, rotate, and drop pieces on the board. Sometimes the tap-to-rotate and swipe-to-move method can be a little frustrating (it's easy to make mistakes), but we were mostly able to enjoy the classic game on our iPhone once we had some practice.
You get some new game variations beyond the endless falling blocks found in the classic arcade version. With a new Magic mode, you get five different power-ups, like the vice grip that let you pinch blocks into place, for example, adding some new elements that are fun to learn and master. But even with just the classic version, it's pretty easy to recommend this time-waster to just about any casual game player.
Overall, if you liked the classic Tetris, the iPhone version looks great on the high-res Retina Display, and new game styles add more replay value to an already great game.
