Tetris 99 - Analysis

We said recently that Tetris 99 has been a pleasant surprise in a world, that of Battle Royale, in which it seemed that a puzzle game would not fit. The truth is that a classic like Tetris revives in this way and is able to hook new generations of players is a not inconsiderable achievement. Tetris 99 has widened the video game window by letting clean air give the room a new color just like a mother does on a Sunday morning. Why is a game that has been on the market for 35 years still in fashion? We will try to find out in a moment.

Because yes, Tetris, the game that came from the cold arrived on the screens of our personal computers during the summer of 1984 in which half of the readers of this article were not even born. In other words, we are talking about a program that literally carries all life with us. The key to the success of this video game can be seen at a first glance. It is evident that its graphic section has not been the one that has taken it to the top, nor is the technical level exhibited throughout these decades. Its simplicity , and a perfectly executed idea is what has made Alekséi Pázhitnov a video game legend.

We are absolutely convinced that you already know what that idea consists of. Geometric pieces of seven predefined shapes that fall from the top of the screen to accumulate at its base while we try to avoid it by stacking them correctly. And the correct way to stack those shapes is to avoid gaps between them, filling each of the spaces horizontally to make that entire line disappear. And that's it. Few games have been made in history in which it can be summarized more concisely and more succinctly, which is what must be done throughout the game. In Tetris there are no more variants than the speed at which the pieces fall , each time higher, making the level of difficulty rise several degrees.

The concept has not changed in this renewed version of the classic, there are not even new pieces -as we have seen in some versions- or game modes that give us some variety. Everything remains basically the same as in 1984 with a small exception. We are not alone. It's also not like Tetris multiplayer is anything new. Many other times we have competed against other friends in some of its infinite versions, so the only novelty in Tetris 99 is precisely what gives the video game its title. We compete with 98 other players to be the last survivor.

The formula for success

Does the formula sound familiar to you? Of course, during the last years we have seen it applied to shooting and survival video games where we had to go through - or hide in - a map liquidating enemies and avoiding being liquidated to become the last man standing.

When Tetris 99 was announced during the past Nintendo Direct, there were many of us who raised our eyebrows skeptically thinking about how the hell a formula like that was going to adapt in a game like this. Well, I can tell you that we were all wrong. Having another hundred players throwing trash piles at you that you try to fit into your game without losing control while doing the same to them has been an absolute success.

Getting it was not an easy task, because the easy thing when you are playing a game of Tetris is to abstract yourself in your own universe concentrating only on placing your pieces in the most orderly way you can. Much of the success of Tetris 99 lies in the fact that you can see the remaining 98 of your enemies at the same time as your screen , in miniatures that are placed next to yours, allowing you to observe at a glance and without losing The sight of your pieces to those who are having problems or on the contrary which adversaries are taking a spring walk in the park while your hands are sweating and your pulse is accelerated while you juggle that damn Z-brick.

The way to complicate the game to your opponents is already known in the multiplayer universe of Tetris. By getting lines, and especially combos of lines, you send garbage to your opponent. The detail is that you can only send it to one of the opponents that is alive, and the strategy component of the game is given by the decision we have to make about who to send our gifts to. The game allows you four options. The first of them is to choose manually with the right stick who we want to screw. We can fix our cursor on that opponent we saw in trouble to speed up their imminent exit from the game, or we can place it on those whom we see cleaner to start putting things in their place. We can also let the CPU itself take care of that by choosing one of the remaining options, which are automatically annoying to do better, to someone who is worse or finally asking them to focus on those who send garbage to us.
