At least it's better than Radica's hand-held Tetris! Aug. 21 2009

Let me state for the record that I am a Tetris Addict. I'm not a gamer, I don't do Wii or Playstation or MMORPGs or any of that. But I love Tetris. It's a simple, conceptual puzzle that keeps my mind agile and is never the same twice. When my first GameBoy was stolen from me, I had to get a GameBoy Advance. I played it into the ground, and when it finally gave up the ghost, I started looking for replacements here on Amazon.

The first one I got was the Color Screen Tetris, which was a very satisfactory game UNTIL one of the little blocks on the bottom of the screen burned out ... and then another ...

Next it was the Radica Handheld Game Tetris. What a piece of junk. I tossed it in a matter of days, and you can read my review to see why, if you like.

Now I am using the Radica Big Screen Tetris. It's far better than Radica's handheld game, but it has a couple of drawbacks:

1: The screen light that automatically comes on when your room is dark becomes less adequate for seeing those Tetris blocks as they start dropping faster and faster.
2: The game is pretty unforgiving, and that's really the only way I can put it. If you have played Tetris on a variety of devices, you'll know what I mean.

BOTTOM LINE: Of the three Tetris games I have purchased from Amazon, I still have to give my highest marks to Color Screen Tetris. Although it sucks batteries pretty quickly, it has a GREAT screen, adjustable skill levels on the various games, and good controls. If only those little blocks didn't start burning out!

Sweet! June 29 2011

I used to be addicted to this game back in the day and after purchasing this I find that once an addict, always an addict. This is a simple game, no color screen but that doesn't bother me, instead it actually just makes me think of my friends Gameboy that I use to borrow all the time to play ... Tetris. (You 'member!)

All the buttons for rapid drops, turning tiles and so on are here. This hand held has it all except for an off switch. It turns off after one minute of inactivity which is ok but I would rather it had a switch so I could pack it without having to get the batteries out. Speaking of batteries, it recommends that you only use regular batteries, not rechargeable ones which kind of surprised and then worried me but I have been playing for a long time now and haven't had to replace the ones it came with so it doesn't seem to suck them dry fast at all (and I have played it a lot). It also tells you when you have the high score but there isn't a menu to enter a name so you can't go head to head with anyone and have the game track it, but then who wants to share anyway lol.

very poor quality March 6 2011

Its inexpensive but also very poor in quality. Its hard to view the screen. You have to catch an angle you can best see it at and then hope you don't move or else you'll lose the clarity again.
It's better to spend the money and buy the BLUE Framed Tetris..It's over $60 but Well Worth the MONEY... so please don't buy this. I got it and am not happy at all.. I can't play it.

This game is very well made, and easy to use. The back-light makes it easy to see in dim light. This one is a treasure.

Major waste of money June 5 2011

~This review applies to the product only and NOT the seller~
Mattel should be ashamed of themselves for creating such a piece of junk. First of all, the game is difficult to play with only two colors. And second, the cheap LCD screen can't keep up with user inputs when the game starts getting fast. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! Very disappointed with Mattel, I thought they were above selling such low end crap.
