Tetris Attack for Game Boy is one of the best hand-held
game ever made! Much like it's Super NES brother, the game
features rich graphics, great music, kewl sounds, responsive
controls, and most important: Super replayabity and playability!
Graphics, as I said above, is rich. Even though it's for
Game Boy, it's good enough for me! It features smooth
animation, cute characers, (Including the beloved Yoshi!)
and nice use of the 4 colors Game Boy allows. After you
complete a puzzle or whatever, a character, who's seems to
be just an observer, jumps for joy! How cute! By the way,
seeing that I used the term "cute" twice already, you
should know that I have nothing against cuteness. Anyway,
the blocks has neat designs. Even though that's not a very
important part of the graphics, I feel like including it.
To say the least about the graphics, it's spectacular.
Music in the game is very great! It's totally unannoying.
Even though one tune is less than 30 seconds long, it's
still unannoying and very inovative. I like it. Bouncy
enough for fast tetris action, yet smooth enough for
enjoyment. Simply outstanding!
Sound is always one of the small parts that players pay big
attention to. Take Star Fox 64 for example. You play it for
one day, and you just want to kill Slippy Toad. Thank
goodness Tetris Attack's sound effects aren't annoying ;).
Controls in this game is not bad at all. Easy to manage and
simple to use. Seems like almost every game I reviewed (except
Blast Corps) has easy controls.
Challenging, this game is! Very funfilled challenges! The
bosses are a bit hard, but it's still possible to beat. And
the Time Trial, Puzzle, and Stage Clear are fun too.
The Replay Value of this game is probably better than the
original Tetris! Very inovative! Very fun! You could play
for hours! And with the Game Link mode for two player
action, it adds to the replay! I would say this is one of
the best Tetris-like games ever!
Overall, the game is everything you might expect it to be
after reading those above paragraphs ;). If think this is a
Tetris clone, you are dead wrong! Get this game!
