Tetris DS review

The dream-robbing blocks are back and more drug-like than ever

Finally, there's the Balloon Fight-drenched Touch game. Instead of falling blocks, you've got a tower of pieces that you can physically move and rotate with the stylus. At the top of the stack is a crate of balloons. Clear enough of the lines to make the crate touch the grass below, and pow - you've done it.

Touch forces you to almost think backwards from normal Tetris gaming. The answer's already there, you've just got to move stuff around and find it. This, too, is a time-free zone, so there's no pressure.

DescriptionSimple and hard to get excited about, but its Nintendo wallpaper and online capabilities should be just enough.
