Other game modes let you build pictures out of Tetris blocks, help a “climber” get to the top of a tower using the aforementioned blocks, and even race through maze-like obstacles. There are many more game modes included. In addition, there 3 ways to play multiplayer. The first of which is “DS download play”, wherein a cartridge holder of Tetris Axis can transfer game data to other 3ds owners, who can then play with the original game owner. Multiplayer method 2 is cartridge to cartridge play, where multiple people actually possessing the game can play with each other. This mode has more play styles and options than the simpler DS Download play. These two methods are considered “local play”, which basically means you have to be next to the person you are playing with. The last form of multiplayer in Tetris Axis is online play, in which you can battle it out against anyone around the world, with games ranging anywhere from 2-8 players. These online games can get very chaotic, competitive, and fun.
In the long run, Tetris Axis is just Tetris; and if you have any experience playing games, you know how it works, and just how fun it can be. This game certainly does not warrant buying a 3DS, but it is a great pick-up-and-play, providing hours of Tetris-y fun and entertainment. If you already own a 3DS, I highly suggest picking it up. Catch ya’ laters :D
