"Not much to say, except it is a brilliant classic. The GB version has always been my favourite of the lot."

Gameplay: 10 / 10   

It is simple. It is classic. It is effective. The tactics are constant, yet you are always fighting to keep from losing, which forces to re-direct how you handle the game at times. Sure, you can play for points, but will you keep going for that last Tetris and risk losing it all, or play it safe and try to clear off some of that stuff along the top. :o
Controls: 8 / 10   

Controls are quite solid and respond well. My only nit is the slight delay if you choose to hold down a direction. While precision is important, sometimes when the speed gets ridiculous, this nit can seal your fate and end your game.
Music: 7 / 10   

Doo... do do doo... do do doo... do do doo... do do dooooooooo doo doo... doo... doo... doo... doo... Sounds familiar now?

The game has three classic tracks, of which the first one is the most famous. It also has extra music for beat the game with a certain scores, and special presentation in B-mode after clearing level 9 with handicaps.
Sound Effects: 4 / 10   

Not really anything outstanding. What is there gets the job done well.
Graphics: 7 / 10   

Pieces and blocks are easy to distinguish. The game also features a lot of extra odds and ends beyond the regular puzzle game that get the job done nicely.
