Nice!
I bought this game thinking it was a iPad clone of Tetris for $1 but is rather better than that. It's nice to check as a simple new rule (The illuminated block) change the gameplay because now your objective is to concentrate in eliminate only this blocks if you want pass the level.
Great game for one buck!

Nice game! I love the option to convert to "tetris" piece touching the next piece. Very original

Woo that's a good clear summarizing, I enjoy so much more games with levels than those with one infinite level.

Ouch haven't even succeed achieve level 1, well it's a lot harder than original Tetris. I can't say I regret 1 buck spending but almost.

Hi Quordobo,

Read the instructions please. You must complete the row with flashing blocks, it's very easy!

Yo can remove one block of each piece touching shiny blocks in the next piece window

Enjoy!

In Pentris you must be smart than in tetris. Not complete all rows... only the necessary. Thinks what are necessary!!! When you get the trick, is very simple!! You must complete rows that hide holes!!

I almost didn't quote there was instruction at right, then when I noticed there was probably something at right, I stick my nose to ipad screen to try read them and after to have read the first two lines I get bored (or my nose start hurt) and stop read.

I deleted already the game, it really get on my nerves and at same time was tempting me to try again, so I deleted it in haste. Well I suppose a day I'll have try install it again and try read the unreadable instructions.

Thanks but honestly I could have read all without to destroy my nose, it just happen like that and I'm a sort of newbie in Tetris like games, you'll need for now the feedback of some other player to get a better idea of reactions.
