Tetris DX requires you to place different shaped blocks which fall from the top of the screen, along the bottom of the screen to make up a line which then disappears from the screen. Watch out though, if you cant fill the gaps and the blocks fill up to the top of the screen the game is over.

Tetris DX features 4 one-player modes and two-player mode using the Universal Game Link Cable.

Well-tuned version of no-nonsense Tetris

The Good
Great handling, awesome music and clear graphics. Battery-saved high scores will hold up for decades so you can always come back later and have another go.

The Bad
Not much to complain about.

The Bottom Line
A well-tuned awesome version of Tetris, with clearer graphics and battery high score saves being an advancement over the original Game Boy Tetris.

For me this is the best version of Tetris on any platform, due to being able to be played on later Game Boy Advance models with great screens and having extremely good handling.
