Tetropolis  



Tetropolis is Tetris crossed with Castlevania


11:00 AM on 04.20.2014



There's a headline I never expected to write. Like ever. But that's Tetropolis for you! Tetropolis sees you playing as those iconic falling blocks, going through levels and exploring the things that need to be explored.

The story of the game is actually a little sad! You're a Tetris piece that was completed correctly, and were scheduled to be destroyed. You escape however, meeting up with another piece that has escaped and together you'll alter your shape in order to get through levels.

The coolest aspect of this game is also the fact that you can manipulate and reorient entire levels, which opens up and creates new challenges. I'm actually kind of mad I had to miss playing Tetropolis while at PAX as this sounds super interesting.
