Total! (Germany) (Dec, 1996)
Tatsächlich ist der Game Boy die ideale Konsole für diese Art von Geschicklichkeitsspiel, die keine aufwendige Präsentation benötigt. Sowohl als Ablenkung für unterwegs als auch für ausgedehnte Puzzle-Sessions ist Tetris Attack eine tolle Alternative zum Ur-Tetris von Alexej Patschitnow.
Portable Review (Oct 29, 2005)
There is an immense amount of replay value in this game. Between five single-player modes, a 2-player mode and unbelievable addictive gameplay, this game has it all. So, if you're looking for a puzzle game for your old Game Boy (or even your Game Boy Advance), you can't go wrong with Tetris Attack.
Electric Playground (Nov 12, 1996)
There's not much wrong with Tetris Attack. It delivers everything it sets out to do and then some. With a variety of different gameplay scenarios, not to mention a great two player mode, this is a portable diversion that will see many hours of play time. Tetris fiends can breathe easy. The legacy of their beloved game has not been tarnished.
Mega Fun (Feb, 1997)
Tetris Attack ist sehr gut spielbar, vielseitig, liebevoll präsentiert und dauerhaft motivierend.
GamePro (US) (Jan, 1997)
Tetris Attack updates the age-old Tetris concept by inverting the basic action: Instead of blocks falling from the top, now they rise from the bottom. Match up like-colored blocks in four one-player modes or go head-to-head against a puzzle pal in the fast-paced two-player competition (Game Link Cable required). If you're a puzzle fanatic, go on the attack with this satisfying game.
