Back when Tetris Effect launched on PS4, it was with full support for the original PSVR. At the time, we thought it was glorious, but realistically, the hardware's limitations meant the picture was never super clear. The spectacle of this flashy take on the familiar falling block puzzle game wasn't lost on us, though, and it remains a...
Once more with feeling
If only it was easy to put into words how Tetris Effect will make you feel. Unfortunately, there’s a reason we’re here writing reviews rather than best-sellers, but we’re going to give it our best shot. Much like Rez Infinite before it, there’s something melancholy and moving about Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s take on the...
Tetris Effect: Connected is temporarily unlocking two of its secret levels in celebration of the new Tetris movie, which is currently streaming on Apple TV+. The two levels (which you can check out in the above trailer) are called 1984 and 1989, respectively, with retro designs invoking the Golden Age of Tetris. Did you know that...
Tetris Effect (or Tetris Effect: Connected if you want to get serious about it) is a magnificent falling block puzzler that we've played a lot on PS4 and PSVR. However, we're itching to get acquainted with the game all over again when it launches on PS5 day and date with PSVR2. It's going to look so good with the spangly new hardware. The...
Enhance Games has announced two of its titles, Rez Infinite and Tetris Effect, are making their way to PS5 and PSVR2. Both of these vaguely rhythmic arcade titles are getting current-gen upgrades, and will be available as PSVR2 launch games. To give a brief recap: Rez Infinite is essentially a remaster of the classic PS2 game,...
Pre-orders coming soon
Tetris Effect is one of the best ways to play the timeless puzzler, whether you immerse yourself in PSVR or keep it flat. Who knew the falling block game from Russia would synergise so wonderfully with explosive visuals and trance-inducing music? Well, Enhance Games did, we suppose. Anyway, if you're a big fan of the game like...
Multiplayer expansion arrives at last
Tetris Effect initially launched on PlayStation 4 with full PSVR support back in 2018, and it's among the best versions of the classic Russian puzzler available. Combining the traditional line-clearing gameplay with a vivid audiovisual experience, the game is a delight, and has all kinds of interesting modes...
It's all connected
We do love a bit of Tetris Effect here at Push Square, so we were super excited when Enhance Games announced Connected, a multiplayer add-on coming to the game for free. Unfortunately, PlayStation 4 users have had to wait roughly eight months for the expansion. The good news is that the wait is very nearly over — it launches...
With full crossplay across all platforms
How can you tell a batch of Microsoft timed exclusivity contracts have expired? Hot on the heels of The Medium’s announcement for PlayStation 5, developer Enhance Games has confirmed that multiplayer expansion Tetris Effect: Connected will deploy as a free update for the existing PS4 game in July – and,...
Party like it's 1984
Yesterday, Tetris celebrated its 37th anniversary. The game has been through many, many iterations over the years, one of the best being the fairly recent Tetris Effect from Enhance Games. This version reinvented the classic line-clearing puzzle game into a spiritual, meditative experience, which is of course Tetsuya Mizuguchi's...
Yours forever together
The only way to make Tetris Effect better is to make it bigger, and that's exactly what the team at Enhance Games is doing. The stunning take on the classic puzzler is getting a major update next year on PlayStation 4, and it's called Tetris Effect: Connected. As you may have guessed from the name, this expansion is all about...
Many scoffed when Tetris Effect was announced, but it turned out to be an incredible iteration of the classic falling-block puzzler. It's a brilliant audiovisual experience whether you're playing on PlayStation VR or your TV, and that's in no small part thanks to the wonderful music. Each of the dreamy stages in the game is accompanied...
Named after a real-world phenomenon where players’ brains are so engrossed that images of the iconic falling Tetrimino blocks (i.e. the Tetris playing pieces) linger in their vision, thoughts, and even dreams, TETRIS® EFFECT amplifies this magical feeling of total immersion by surrounding you with fantastic, fully three-dimensional worlds that react and evolve based on how you play. Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects—everything, down to the Tetris pieces themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in perfect sync with how you’re playing.
From deep beneath the ocean to the furthest reaches of outer space and everywhere between, TETRIS® EFFECT’s 30-plus stages take players on a wondrous, emotional journey through the universe. The core of the game is still Tetris—one of the most popular puzzle games of all time—but like you’ve never seen it, or heard it, or felt it before.
