First Person Tetris

Soulskill posted more than 4 years ago | from the i-recommend-night-mode dept.

Nintendo 6

visy writes "First Person Tetris is a perception-bending rehash of the original Nintendo Entertainment System Tetris game where you assume the perspective of the blocks... while they turn. So, instead of the block turning, your perception of the playing field itself rotates, ramping up the difficulty of Tetris to new, vomit-inducing heights."

Sickness (1, Informative)

I don't know if it's all the chili I just ate or this game. It took me about 2 minutes before feeling ill, and I don't normally get sick from games.

Meh (1)

Meh. Makes your head spin a little because you can only rotate the blocks one way, but that's about it. Didn't even notice it until I stopped playing. Got to about as far as I do in normal tetris (level 6).

I'm genuinely curious, why don't Tetris clones ever implement both rotations? In the gameboy version I played to death, when you got to high levels, like 12+ I think, if you took the time to rotate three lefts instead of a right, you were dead. I've seen some genuinely interesting clones that I just have trouble playing because my brain says "rotate left, rotate right" not "rotate once, rotate three times."

I thought of first person as the perspective being within a block - your camera is inside the block, and you can see yourself (so you know shape) and as you rotate, you can see only walls/top/bottom. I guess this would require being able to independently rotate the camera and the block (otherwise a quarter of your drops would be blind). Wow, the game I envisioned from the title sounds awful...

This exactly what I envisioned when I saw the title, too. I was kinda disappointed when I saw it's just normal perspective with fullscreen rotation tacked on.
