Tetrominos To The Max! Tetris Ultimate Spins Onto PC

Spinning out of control

Tetris is the socks of games, isn't it? You may not think about it often, but you'd miss it if it were gone and, some days, nothing is more pleasing than slipping on a nice cosy pair of L-blocks. It's perhaps not the most exciting Crimbo gift, though, so why not kick it up a notch? Take it to the next level? Introduce a whole new tetromino paradigm? Rotate blocks to the max? Ubisoft have you covered.

Yesterday they released Tetris Ultimate [official site] on PC, a year after its debut on PlayStation 4. Apparently it crashes a lot. That's pretty xtreme. Or too much eggnog.

Tetris Ultimate offers solo block-placing and multiplayer for up to four, with a load of wikkid sikk and gnarly new modes with timers and power-ups and things. To the max!

Initial player reviews report crashes, unbindable controls, and other problems.

Tetris Ultimate is £7.99 on Steam. I'd wait to see if Ubi fix things up before gifting it to anyone this holiday season, though I suppose it might make a good white elephant present. Here's a gift idea: hand-carve a beautiful wooden box, from maple or cherrywood perhaps, and place inside a disc containing a downloaded copy of a better, free Tetris game - NullpoMino or Cultris II or a link to Tetris Friends or something.
