Now Tetris is getting the free-to-play treatment

EA has decided to give age-old puzzle classic Tetris a free-to-play makeover.

Tetris Blitz is described as “an innovative new twist on the world famous puzzle game” that “contains fresh new features and stunning visuals for the ultimate Tetris experience”.

In much the same way as PopCap altered the rule set for Bejeweled Blitz, this new Tetris will offer two minute bursts of gameplay with players trying to rack up as high a score as possible before the clock runs out.

It goes without saying that a wide range of power-ups are available. And can be purchased. It also connects with Facebook – again, much like PopCap’s title.

"Tetris Blitz wraps all of the best elements of the iconic Tetris game inside a bite-sized, frenzied experience that is perfect for smartphones and tablets," EA All Play’s senior VP and GM Nick Earl stated.

"The crisp graphics, innovative new controls and social leaderboards are bound to make Tetris Blitz a captivating gaming experience for long-time Tetris fans and newcomers alike."

Tetris Blitz is available on Android and iOS.
