DescriptionTetroCrate is a cross between Block Puzzle, Tile Matching Game and Jigsaw. No time pressure, no stress and more relaxed than traditional Falling Block Arcades / Tile Matching Block Puzzles, and thus - completely different tactics and strategy. TetroCrate looks good both on phone and tablet devices.
How to play:
Touch, slide and snap current active piece into available empty place, fit matching blocks exactly in Tangram or Jigsaw puzzle. Similar shapes and objective, as in traditional Block Puzzles or Tile Matching Arcade Games: complete either horizontal or vertical block lines, so full block lines can disappear. Get significantly more bonus points for killing multiple rows or columns at once, up to 5000 for 5 lines.
Unlike most Falling Block games, in the *original* TetroCrate you cannot rotate pieces. This limitation imposed for a reason: to make game play natural, drag-n-drop style and as effortless as possible, sticking to KISS principle: "Keep It Simple and Stupid". However, it is possible to swap the current piece with the next one by clicking on 'Next' piece preview in the top-right corner of the screen.
Be warned, although game is simple, it is pretty addictive time killer, minutes and hours just flies-by unnoticed.
Since TetroCrate version 1.1, experimental rotation "Revolver" mode became available and now possible to turn pieces around with touch gestures. To make gameplay more balanced, new blocks and multiple game levels added, plus landscape layout simplifies tablet game play.
Many old PC, Arcade and Console games, like Pentix, Brick Breaker game, Block puzzles, Arkanoid, etc, are not really suitable for Android mobile handsets and touch screens, missing tactile feedback and robustness of real physical keyboard. Especially this touch screen controls' drawback is noticeable when playing on high speed.
TetroCrate offers totally different game play: no virtual on-screen buttons, no weird unresponsive touch controls, and no awkward unreliable and unnatural gestures required to play. Just Drag and Drop. TetroCrate is one of those time killers that can easily fill five minutes while you wait in line.
