Tetris concludes our journey via the U.S. Digital Boy library

…besides it isn’t really Tetris, is it?

It looks as if we solely simply began our journey via the Digital Boy library, and but right here we’re with the 14th and closing U.S. entry within the Digital Boy catalog: Three-D Tetris. This might have made for a neat bookened to the system’s run; in spite of everything, Digital Boy was very a lot a follow-on from Recreation Boy, a console that launched within the U.S. with Tetris in tow. However the filthy little lie of Three-D Tetris is that it’s not Tetris in any respect! As an alternative, it is extra like knockoff of Blockout. Properly, I assume you would name it a Welltris clone, however Welltris is a knockoff of Blockout, so… you understand. All roads result in and so forth. and so forth.

I wished to get pleasure from Three-D Tetris greater than I did, however it’s simply not enjoyable. The motion alternates between stultifyingly sluggish and overly difficult with out ever discovering a cheerful floor in between, and it has essentially the most headache-inducing visuals since Purple Alarm… fittingly, provided that this additionally comes from Purple Alarm developer T&E Mushy. No less than their Golf recreation was good. That places them one up on J-Wing or Athena, as we’ll see.

This will have been the ultimate U.S. Digital Boy launch and the ultimate formally licensed recreation revealed for Digital Boy worldwide, however we’re not performed with Digital Boy but. There are nonetheless seven Japan-exclusive titles for us to deal with… and on high of that, there’s fairly a little bit of attention-grabbing homebrew and leaked unpublished materials to discover. 

Earlier than we leap into the Japan-only stuff, my eyes want a short respite to take a look at NES and Tremendous NES video games. Within the meantime, why not click on via to the Digital Boy Works playlist and spend a few hours catching up with the story to this point?
