Tetris Battle Royale isn't a collection of words you ever imagine yourself having to think about, let alone dedicate an entire review to. But here we are - Tetris 99 is exactly that.
It combines the ruthless, timeless, block-stacking puzzler with a chaotic competitive multiplayer element, in which you're trying to drop as much garbage on your opponent's grid as possible.
And, honestly, it's really good fun. Confusing and ridiculous? Absolutely. And it's a little barebones right now. But at its core, this is a brilliant game of Tetris made even sillier.
Make a row of blocks and they'll disappear. Make several rows at the same time and they'll also disappear, clearing up even more space than before. Simple stuff, hard to master.
This is Tetris as you know and love it, and it's wonderfully responsive to boot. But there's a catch - you're up against 98 other people.
This version of multiplayer Tetris isn't particularly new either, but facing off against so many people at once does add an interesting, chaotic spin to the formula.
You can manually choose which player you want to target with your garbage, but with a swift flick of the right stick you can let the game decide whether to target random players, players with badges, players who are targeting you, or just the players who are closest to getting knocked out.
This alleviates some of the pressure from you, and means you can focus on the real task at hand - not sucking at Tetris. Which, unless you've been playing for the past few decades, you probably will.
And then the garbage starts to pile. A rogue break in a row has screwed everything up for you, and you're rushing to fix your problem before its too late. More garbage. More missed steps. Death. Game over.
And then you jump back in. Getting into matches is pretty easy at the moment, thanks to a lot of intrigued Switch owners, and the fact that it's completely free to play. And when you're playing, there's no lag or anything - just smooth Tetris action all the way.
But there's not much else to the game beyond playing Tetris. The only other things you can do is look at your gameplay stats or change the options. You level up from time to time, but so far this is completely pointless - you don't earn anything from it, other than a bigger number next to your name.
However, you really should give it a whirl. It's classic Tetris fun wrapped up in a layer of utter chaos, and as stupid a premise as it is, it's well worth a download. It is free, after all.
