Tetris stretches its legs as the Xbox Live Deal of the Week again

Tetris tights

We saw a lady wearing these at E3. I approved.

After a lengthy delay on the Marketplace update, nothing could please bargain hunters more than a repeat Deal of the Week, right? Somebody thought so, as this week’s DOTW is Tetris from Electronic Arts. Just like August and November last year, it’s on sale for $2.99, down from $4.99.

The Windows Phone version of Tetris is actually quite slick. It’s got great visuals and a good remix of the classic Tetris theme “Korobeiniki.” There are numerous gameplay variants such as Gravity and Radical that add a bit of variety to the game we’ve all played a million times before. Some have complained about the touch screen controls (swipe left and right to steer, tap to rotate, and swipe down to drop pieces), but I find them to be natural and effective enough. Our review also praises the game’s stat tracking. The actual game does not feature tights however, for better or worse.

Tetris is on sale for $2.99 for one week. Puzzle fans who aren’t too busy with Fling can pick ol' Tetris up here on the Marketplace.

on the floor LMAO

This game seems like trash

brixtonlao says:

"App not found"

DavidinCT says:

I might buy this but for $2.99 ? No way.. $0.99 maybe

mase123987 says:

Game should be $.99 to start with.  I have spent probably $60 in apps so I don't mind supporting devs. but come on!

DavidinCT says:

I'm well over $60, I dont mind paying for a good game or app but, $3 for a game that came FREE with game systems 20 years ago ? (The orignal Nintendo game boy)
 
That is just crazy

mase123987 says:

I still have the original Gameboy and the Tetris game!  I was so good at it when I was young.

Paul Acevedo says:

This version and the GameBoy one are a smidge different.

schlubadub says:

Nintendo paid the devs for that port. These devs had to spend their own time building this version.

Tetris was great in the 90's but I've got better things to play now :P

Tetris is the new Windows Phone start screen..

WPSteve says:

I see what you did there.

I had a lot of fun with Tetris the first time I bought it for $2.99.

This isn't a bad game by any means but it looks almost identical to the version I used to have on my old Pantech...and that was a standard/dumb phone, loading icon and all. It would have been nice if it were the updated version available on iOS...minus the freemium features of course. Plus the touch controls aren't nearly as responsive on this version than I remember on my old iPhone, leading me to have to play with the d pad on the highest speeds. Oh well.

I think they're missing the point of a deal.
