Tetris 2 (Nintendo Game Boy, 1993)
|Tetris 2 moves from NES to Game Boy in this conversion of the hit puzzle game sequel. Unique to the handheld version is a puzzle mode, which challenges you to remove blinking blocks from the playing field within a set number of moves. Another slight difference is that the two-player option requires a Game Link Cable, so you will be unable to see your opponent's screen. In addition, the red, blue, and yellow pieces from the NES game are depicted as white, black, and gray pieces due to the handheld's monochromatic display. Otherwise the controls and content between the two versions are identical.
As a variation of the Tetris concept, rather than having the objective of matching horizontal lines of blocks which descend from the top of the screen as tetrominos, instead the player matches the colours of the descending blocks (which include irregular tetromino shapes) to blocks already fixed on the game board, which causes blocks to disappear from the board when three blocks of the same colour are matched, in a manner similar to the puzzle video game Dr. Mario.
