Tetris Blitz Announced and Screens

First-ever freemium Tetris title puts a new twist on iconic puzzle game
Electronic Arts and The Tetris Company have today the development of Tetris Blitz, a new twist on the world famous puzzle game developed for iOS and Android. Tetris Blitz introduces all new strategies to the iconic Tetris gameplay in a two-minute sprint to clear lines and rack up as many points as possible before time runs out. Fans will get blown away by stunning cascades by clearing multiple lines back-to-back, to trigger the elusive Frenzy Mode for a huge score multiplier. Players can also boost their score by choosing from the game's collection of explosive power-ups - and with new power-ups released every week, the combinations are endless. Blitz also innovates on the fan favorite One-Touch controls with the addition of the new "Drag and Place" option, while also including the traditional "Swipe" option for Tetris players who prefer the classic controls.
Additionally, Tetris Blitz will feature Facebook Connect integration, which will let players compete with friends in a weekly competition, share high scores and brag as they fly past friends on the leaderboards. Tetris Blitz will be available later this spring on the Apple App Store SM, Google Play and Amazon App Store - nine screenshots found their way in our gallery.
