Combine elements to create the next highest tier in this simple but elegant match-3 puzzle game that incorporates elements of Tetris. Though nowhere near as full-featured as its upcoming commercial cousin, it's clean, addictive, and surprisingly clever.
The fun is catching, it's Mousecraft! A zany puzzling mix of Lemmings and Tetris by Crunching Koalas, Mousecraft's whimsical presentation masks surprisingly technical gameplay in its levels. Still, it's quite addictive in that "Okay, one more try!" kind of way.
You have two minutes to turn a falling mess of letter tiles into words. Think you're up to the challenge? Fiasco! from Blinking Pixels combines Tetris with Scrabble in the most frantic way possible. Letters fall from the top of the screen and can be swiped and stacked below. Arrange them to spell words, then give them a tap to convert them into points. Work in as many long words as you can and you just might turn this fiasco into a triumph!
Think Rush Hour mingled with Tetri but with shapes that do more than just slide, and you'll have the basic idea of what Shapist is like. More than just a sliding block puzzle game, drag, rotate, or shrink the blocks in order to uncover the grey block to continue. Don't worry about timers or scores, it's just you and the blocks.
Do you know how many shapes you can make with six or more squares? A lot, that's how many. Omino may seem like a simple Tetris clone at first, but its mechanic of making the pieces larger instead of making them fall faster as you level up adds a refreshing spin. Oh, and there are powerups.
Dreamy, addictive, easily playable and challenging at the same time, Dawn of Play's gorgeous little iOS arcade puzzler is the sort of thing that can take up all your free time. In two modes of "reverse Tetris" style gameplay, dismantle grids of blocks with the shapes at hand, either as fast as you can to stay ahead of the fall in arcade mode, or carefully and with planning in the deceptively more relaxing puzzle mode.
Combining hypnotic, addictive match-3 styled Tetris gameplay, Iluvas Games' latest is a beautiful though somewhat cluttered hybrid.

Do you like puzzles? Do you like Tetris? Do you like BUTTER? Megadev's Big-Time Butter Baron combines all three of these in a tricky challenge of block placement set in one of the craziest factories you'll ever see.

It's tough to decide between two classics, so FonGeBooN has offered a unique solution: play both at the same time! That's what TETRISweeper is in a nutshell: a unique fusion of the tetromino-sorting gameplay of Tetris and the mine-avoiding tension of Minesweeper. TETRISweeper is an intense game to say the least, but surprisingly fun to fans of both its parent games.
Once you pop you can't stop! Blocks, that is! Blast chains of coloured blocks in this simple, simply fun, and simply addictive action arcade game from Andrew Morrish!

Cheat Death is a puzzle game by Garbuz Games where you help a young man avoid turning to dust by leading him to the elixir on the other side of a cliff. This involves manipulating a series of floating tetris-like blocks and dragging them into a specific area. Once formed, the man will hike across the path, reach the elixir, regain his youth, and "cheat death" until the next level.
While it's missing some bells and whistles (like sound effects, namely bells and whistles), and the name might be a bit of a misnomer (wouldn't true toroid Tetris wrap from bottom to top?), Torus makes use of HTML5, a shiny new programming language that's accessible on more platforms than before. While making a step into the future(!) of gaming, Torus pays homage to a classic with its own unique twist.
With First Person Tetris, brace yourself to rediscover a classic game given a dizzyingly new makeover. Be warned, though, if you can survive the motion-induced nausea you may find out what all those office workers of old discovered: once started it's difficult to stop.
Stacking things on top of other things has never been more fun... or more tricky! Try to achieve the correct weight on the scales to balance both sides, but watch out; create a single solid row of blocks and they'll vanish, Tetris style! So warm up that thinker between your ears and put on your puzzle solving gloves, because Libra will test your mettle like few other games will.
The first 99 Bricks stuffed the standard Tetris formula full of physics, and now the sequel has crammed a whole bunch of RPG elements in there. How many genres can Tetris possibly hold? With your help, the vigilant Garry must save the kingdom of Brickonia from dire peril, and that means you need to build a whole lotta towers out of tetrimino blocks. Weird like a beard, man.
This version of Tetris is very friendly indeed. Bright, clear visual and sound effects accompany your every move. A three-tiered strategy guide and a basic history of the game are just a click away. Even if you think you're burned out on Tetris for life, give Tetris Friends a try. You might just re-discover what once made this your favorite game in the world.
