Tetris in the Batorois period
▲ The 98 Tetris screens that appear in the background are all moving in real time, and all are enemies.
One game that has been hit in the last few years is called the Batorois, but that is a shooting game where 100 people are all enemies and the last one survives. “PUBG”, “wilderness action”, “Fortnite”, etc. are typical examples. So, if they say that there is something new as a shooter, it was not so, but it was interesting that 100 people decided the last standing man.
So, Tetris 99. This also follows the fun of the Batorois system. Continue to stack Mino until you become the last one. As with Batorois shooters, the last surviving player wins instead of defeating all enemies, so it is possible to win even by defeating one at the end. So, strong players don't always win, and depending on the timing, it is one of the fun things that you can win with a decent arm.
▲ Change the Random, Stop, Counter, and Badge Aim strategies written in the upper center of the screen by moving the R stick.
In addition, there is “Tetris” technique that is already commonplace in “Puyo Puyo Tetris”. For those who haven't touched since Tetris in the game center era or the Sufami era, the strongest attack is to vacate one square and pile up minoes, so-called sticks (minoes with four blocks in a row) I think that it is Tetris to erase 4 lines at a stretch.
Today's Tetris has a variety of attack methods. One of them is T-spin. T-type mino can be installed in a form that cannot be placed by rotating it until it touches the accumulated mino and stops completely. Using this technique to erase Mino will give you a higher attack power than Tetris with 4 lines.
There is also a technique called REN. This can be achieved by erasing the mino continuously, even if one line is erased, which does not originally generate attack power. Unlike "Puyo Puyo", Tetris has almost no chain image, but if REN is well prepared, it can attack more than 10 consecutive attacks.
▲ When turning right at the moment of installation, it was strange that it was firmly placed in the gap and the two lines were erased. This is T spin.
This technique makes it easier to win. However, even in the Batorois shooter introduced earlier, there are elements that even strong people lose, such as being found by an opponent with a powerful weapon before taking the weapon early, or being defeated with a composition like 5 to 1. Even Tetris 99 is targeted by more than 5 people, and at the same time more than 5 blocks are sent …
The rest is easy. If a highly skilled player doesn't have a one-on-one game, a game will last about five minutes. You can challenge right away, and you can play matches quickly as soon as you have to gather 99 people. It ’s really good to be able to feel 1-2 battles before the holidays.
