Picked up the game and I really like it.

The Tetris game play works well within this battle style game. You move the blocks along the wall and drop it where you need. This is done by a simple swiping move and you can see the ending spot on the lowest level of the tower. What is cool is that the pieces can actually wrap around the corner, meaning that a four block straight piece can bend if needed.

The main idea is to create "Quads". These are basically squares all the way around the tower. When you do this the line goes away, you damage Bogey's (the bad guy) ship, and you get money to buy tower weapons. The weapons part is a really nice twist.

There are four towers you can buy, each with different effects. The Freeze Tower will slow down the approaching blocks (I haven't found it too useful yet, but I'm sure it will come in handy later). The Laser Tower will blast away a block that is covering a gap. The Plugger will fill in holes you might have made. And the Neutralizer will give you a Quad with each recharge.

Getting the money for these takes time, but very much worth it.

My only problem is that occasionally I go to move a block and it thinks I've swiped down and sends the block tot he bottom. so I've just tried to be more careful with things.

This game is perfect for anyone who likes a Tetris Fix. But it also puts other elements into play that make the game unique. Adding the four walls, having it be a battle against the alien Bogey, having achievements and scoreboard, and adding the towers really give this a fun value.

For the price it's really a must have for fans of the genre and puzzle fans in general.
