Summary

Play "Tetris" with Mario.

The Good

If you miss something about the classic game of "Tetris", then this is the game for you. When you start the game you immediately see the resemblance between this game and "Tetris". After a few minutes of playing the game, you are in a trance, and that is a very good sign for a game. The good sound effects and the cool music, in combination with the game engine, keeps you going for hours. The first five or eight levels are more like training levels. When you get past level 10, then you really get to use your skills to the max. I'm still trying to get past level 15. But even if it gets more difficult later on in the game, it is still a very fun game to play.

The Bad

As the case usually is for these old "Game Boy" games, it goes faster and faster further out in the game. Though you have set the speed to "Low" it still goes faster and faster.

The Bottom Line

As I wrote in the beginning, if you miss something about "Tetris" or don't like it so much, then this is the game for you.
