Tetris Effect is the latest game from Enhance that takes the near-perfected modern Tetris gameplay and adds fully interactive visuals and music to induce synesthesia and possibly leading to the "Tetris effect"; a scientifically researched phenomenon where players eventually begin to see Tetromino blocks long after having played the game.
THE ZONE - Tetris Effect introduces the all new "Zone" mechanic. As you clear lines you fill up the Zone meter. Players can use this meter to enter "the Zone", stopping time to quickly get out of a sticky situation or rack up extra line clears for huge points. It also makes possible for the first time the clearing of more than four lines at once (a "Tetris") leading to the new "Octoris", "Decahexatris", "Perfectris" and more! The Zone mechanic is only available in the Journey mode.
MODES - Along with the standard "Journey" campaign mode where you complete a set number of lines across groups of stages, there are also the "Effect Modes" which include fan-favorites like Marathon, Sprint, and Ultra as well as introducing new ones such as "Mystery" that will challenge and surprise even the greatest Tetris master.
STAGES - Over 30 different stages, each with its own music, sound effects, graphics style and background that all evolve and change as you play. Clearing lines, getting combos, performing a T-spin double, and more will all cause the stage's music and visuals to react.
VISUALS - Available on Playstation 4, the game is fully playable on either a standard display (up to 4K and 60fps on a PS4 Pro) or optionally in mind-blowing 3D in PSVR where the stages will come to life around you. You can also zoom and rotate the game field to your heart's content.
