GRIDS

Peter Cholewinski

Many years ago, Tetris captured the minds and hearts of millions of gamers worldwide, and forever changed the gaming landscape. Since then, countless games have attempted – and failed -- to capture that glorious essence. The reason? They’ve tried to duplicate an idea from the past, rather than create something fresh and exciting for a new generation of modern gamers. Fortunately, there are exceptions to every trend, because Peter Cholewinski has finally done what hundreds of game developers before him have failed to accomplish: create a game that pays homage to Tetris in spirit, but delivers something totally unique, new and addictively fun: GRIDS.

Features

Stack blocks - clear lines! THE famous game, but completely different.

Play 81 different levels with small to large blocks, big arenas or small arenas.

3 basic, new play modes make sure your block stacking never gets boring!

Play each level as often as you want for a new high score, or free all levels from monsters that you can only defeat, once you figure out what line clearing combo hurts them!

It is addictively fun!

==================================
It offers 81 levels, each featuring unique designs and coming with various sized figures (3, 4, or 5 bricks - and in later worlds even more). Even more, there are various game modes with line clearing, color clearing, linked grids, and more variations.

- 81 unique levels (grids) to play

- each level has its own design and game play

- you start with three unlocked levels, and as you play you gain experience which then unlocks the higher levels

- more than 10 different game modes (e.g., row/line clearing, color matching of squares, linked grids)

- blocks/figures start with each 3 or 4 bricks, but in higher levels get much more challenging with 6, 7, or 8 parts: all designed to still make it addictively fun to play

- in addition, each grid hosts a monster that can only be defeated with a unique tactic (clear rows in a certain way!)

- almost 100 items to use during game play; attainable during game play as loot or in the shop

- those items help you solve puzzles and other obstacles, making Grids even more fun

- great music, with more than 60 tunes

- many, many more features, bringing you fun for hours

==================================
Controls are super easy:
- swipe to move falling block
- tap to rotate block
- use cool additional functions at the bottom that you can activate on the items screen (you start with one free item, but get more during gameplay or in the shop)

==================================
HINT on monsters: you can defeat the monsters using a specific tactic, meaning clear lines in a certain way. For instance, for the very first would try clearing exactly 3 lines at a time and see what happens. In other levels the "formula" to kill monsters changes: it might be exactly 2 lines or exactly 3 lines at a certain height - so you might have to deliberately create holes in your stacking to defeat. It is not easy and can be hard to find out, but there is a way for every monster.
