Tetris Battle – Tips Battle

Tetris Battle

Brain Training Games (Memory, Focus, Spatial Reasoning, Attention, Speed, Problem Solving)

The two Battle variants give you the opportunity to taste Tetris combat against formidable foes. In Battle 2P, you’ll face off against one other opponent; in Battle 6P, you’ll take on five opponents at a time. Clear multiple lines and perform big moves and combos to force your opponents to the brink. When you take on tough opponents in the Battle games, you better have an understanding of all of your weapons: T-Spins, Tetrises, and Combos are all valuable tools.

When you perform these moves in Battle 2P, you’ll send penalty lines to your only foe; in Battle 6P, a target will move randomly from opponent to the next, making it difficult (but not impossible!) to attack a specific opponent. The number of lines you send depends on the quality of the move you just performed; check out the chart below to discover the best ways to attack your opponents.

When you send penalty lines to your opponent (or when an opponent throws some your way) there is a slight delay before the lines get added to your Matrix. This brief window is an opportunity for the player to cancel out some of the penalty lines via special moves. For example, if you’re about to get hit with three penalty lines, performing a Tetris will prevent that from happening. In addition, since Tetrises are worth a total of four penalty lines, you’ll send the remaining penalty line back to your opponent!

  • Let the game come to you: if you see opportunities for Tetrises, do them; if you see chances to pull of T-Spins, do them. Don’t get trapped into one style.
  • Perform Combos with caution: they can be devastating to your opponent, but setting them up can fill up your Matrix and leave you vulnerable to a swift attack.
  • Clearing lines quickly is always a good defense. If you find yourself against the ropes, clear lines as quickly as possible—you may even luck into a few Combos while you’re at it.
  • Get a head start with Maps in Battle 6P. You can choose to start the game with pre-arranged blocks to mix up the action.
