Tetris is one of the most iconic video games in existence. It has been around for over 30 years, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. If you are a Tetris fanatic like me, then this article will be sure to give you some trivia that you didn’t know about your favorite game!
What do these blocks have to do with any anything?
A lot more than what meets the eye.. find out below:
In addition to being able to play solo against an AI opponent or compete online, players can also take their skills offline by playing on Nintendo Switch™ through “Nintendo Labo™: Toy-Con 01 Variety Kit” (sold separately). With two different modes included – Standard mode and Challenge mode – players will be able to enjoy a different experience each time they play.
I’m sure you’re wondering why these blocks have such weird names, so I’ll tell you!
-The highest block is called “Pile of Poo” and the lowest one is called “Brick.” You can find out more about what lies in between by reading below:
-One thing that most people don’t know is that Tetris originally had 18 colors for its building blocks – as opposed to just four (which are white, gray, black and red). These include blue, brown, yellow/goldenrod. Pink pastels were also part of this group but it was later removed due to color clash issues with some game consoles.
-Another interesting fact is that Tetris was originally designed in 1984 for the Spectrum. However, it took over a year and lots of work to get it ported into other gaming systems such as NES, PC, XBOX 360 or PS Vita.
Ultimately with these facts you can see why there are so many bizarre types of blocks – some were made up by creators while others came about from difficulties trying to port the game across to different consoles! Either way they’re all fun names 🙂
Now back onto more Tetris block trivia:
-The next highest level on the building blocks scale is called “Spiteful Block,” which may be one of my favorites because I’m spiteful sometimes 😉 It’s also known as the devil block because it is, well, absolutely evil!
-The next highest level of blocks are called “Lite Blocks.” They’re known as Lite because they don’t weigh much at all. It’s not a good idea to put too many light blocks on top of each other or the game will get slowed down and you’ll lose your points in Tetris. You can also use them defensively by putting them at the bottom of an area if there’s no room for anything else!
Some more facts about Lite Block:
*There have been some people who want to rename this type of block but so far it has yet to happen 😉 *Only two games out there have managed to make changes like that – Tetris Revolution and Tetris DS.
-The next set of blocks are called “Medium Blocks.” They’re much heavier than the Lite Block but not as heavy as the Hard Blocks. It’s a very versatile block because it can be used at any level, including on top of other more difficult blocks! *A lot of people think that Mediums should have been renamed Heavy Blocks because they do weigh a little bit more after all 😉 But then again, names aren’t everything.. right? 🙂
Some more facts about Medium Block:
*People who like to play Tetris professionally often use this type of block for their strategy. They’ll build up tall towers with them so that there is always an available space below when needed.
*Medium Blocks are usually the first blocks to be placed in a game of Tetris because they’re easy to put down and don’t take up too much space. This is why it’s important not only as an early block, but throughout the whole game!
-The next set of blocks are called “Lite Blocks.” They can fit together with any other type of block without changing its shape or size, which makes them one of the most versatile types around! Lite Blocks weigh less than Mediums so they have all sorts of uses from being used for clearing out lines at high speed, supporting bigger towers built by Hard Block players – even shading pieces that might otherwise fall off the screen when there isn’t enough time to finish a level.
-The “Hard” block is strong and tough, so it’s perfect for players who like to go all out! Like Lite Blocks, Hard blocks can fit together with any other type of block without changing their shape or size – but they’re heavier than Mediums which makes them slower at clearing lines when you need that speed boost. On the plus side though, they are very good for building towers because even if your tower falls down before you’ve finished putting in enough pieces to clear the screen – there’ll be plenty left over!
*It takes more time to place these heavy blocks on top of each other (especially higher up), but don’t get discouraged just yet! As long as you wait until the Heavy Block has landed on the one below it, you’ll still get that satisfying “TING!” -The “Soft” block is a light and bouncy type of tetris piece. This is perfect for players who like to build up high and then come down in an orderly fashion – but Soft blocks can’t be placed directly next to other pieces or they will change shape! They’re also not so good at clearing lines (they have to make two consecutive connections before clearing). But if you do manage to finish the level with these guys intact, your score just might jump by quite a few points. *Unlike Hard Blocks, when placing Soft Blocks on top of each other, there’s no need for precision! As long as both
