Everyone has played Tetris. It is solid, simple and satisfying. But if it’s a little too boring for your tastes, a freelance developer hangs up for free every Tuesday a damn new remix of the venerable dropper on Itch.io.
Every week, Tetrible (from developer Henri) is updated with a new twist on Tetris. For example, this week's edition adds small Tetronimos to the mix, which often forces you to place medium-sized blocks. The lines can be erased at this level, which also ends up cutting normal blocks in half, drilling countless tiny holes in your planes.
Other variations have become so strange: mix them up so you can only cleans lines vertically (rather than horizontally), having control of two pieces at once, making each Tetronimo a little too long, even tilting the board and making it slippery. Henri will often make old favorites again, but seeing what the hell come up every week is at least a good laugh.
All of this is reminiscent of Pippin Barr’s chess (which they have since generated two sequelae), taking a tried and tested game format and turning it in dozens of wild directions. One of these, Chogue, went even further by turning chess into a full-featured chess roguelike.
