This game adds a new twist to the tired game of Tetris and all its variants: this time, when you fill a line with bricks, you get a certain number of anti-brick bombs, which adds a whole new strategy to the game as you figure out new and exciting ways to use the bombs to your benefit. In addition, some new bricks give you benefits when exploded. One gives you bonus points, one blows up an entire section of bricks, one kills the entire row for you, and one gives you a 1 x 4 brick for your next one. The options are also superb. You can play a single player match or a timed (5- or 10-minute) match by yourself; or, with a friend, you can play cooperative, when you work together in the same grid; competitive, where you compete in the same grid; or head-to-head, which features two games going at once.
Not much put me off here, except the fact that it could have used more variation. All that happens when you advance a little is that the game gets a little faster.
The Bottom Line
The best, most innovative Tetris variant I've ever played.

The game's box says it's for Windows 3.0, and it's right. It does have some problems running under Windows 3.1 and above, which were solved through the 1.1 update.
