    I really hope that this is a budget release....otherwise i can't see that many people are going to get "blown away over and over again".

    "Flipper"?

    The fuck? You obviously can't call the other games Tetris, Pacman and Breakout/Arkanoid, but it's just pinball!

    The Tetris clone is too slow and takes forever to get faster. I was up to 133 lines and shut it off because I got bored.

    The Arkanoid clone seems OK, but we have various other versions of this in at least 2 other releases.

    The Pac-Man clone..... [​IMG] Very ugly, but playable. Meh....

    The Pinball game......OK, but the ball is way too bouncy. At least it's better than that Pinball Deluxe which was recently released.

    That's all there is to this compilation. Bargain bin material from the moment it was released, I'd wager. None of it is terrible, but none of it stands out as anything special either. 5 out of 10 at best.

    Tetris would be a lot better if you were able to rotate the blocks both ways, instead of just clockwise.

    How is this legal for them to blatantly rip off these games. Tetraminos? Are you fucking kidding me?

    Rare comment from me but "Best of Arcade games DS" ?
    Get to fuck, i'm sure there are several homebrew games that have done all of the included much better.
    Lots of vitriol evident here, deservedly so.

    It is impossible to patent a game mechanic (or, more properly, it is impossible to successfully defend a patent on a game mechanic.) That is why you see so many street fighter clones, too, and why games shifted to focusing so heavily on copyrightable characters for so long.

    A game's designer can copyright its levels, its overall visual presentation, and so on (and actually, the Pac Man guy in this game looks so much like Pac-Man that it might really be a violation), but you can't copyright or patent the basic game mechanics.

    If you think it's bad now, it was much worse back in the old Atari era. Just about every game was a horrible rip-off of something else, generally badly-coded and buggy, and they didn't even have the decency to at least give you four horrible rip-offs in one like this.

    talk about blatant ripoffs..you should read the back story tetris , and how Alexey Pajitnov got SCREWED! Everyone made money from tetris but him.

    Why don't you SIMPLY go and get Tetris DS? Since it's the original Tetris you should be fine. It has some other blockgames with it too...

    As for this relase, well... meh... I don't think the world was waiting for it... :S

    There is a Tetris for every system on the world, so why shouldn't there be one for DS? [​IMG]

    Better yet, read the book "Game Over" by David Sheff you want a real insite into the story of Tetris, better yet its the history of Nintendo.... as a review I would give it 100%, I read it three times...
