Magical Tetris Challenge


n64gm159 - Developed and Published by Capcom Entertainment, Inc., "Magical Tetris Challenge" was released for the Nintendo 64 (N64) Entertainment System in 1999. Magical Tetris Challenge is a Disney make-over of the Alexey Pajitnov's classic action puzzle game, which mixes the well known Tetris style with the Disney characters. Choose Disney characters such as Goofy, Donald, Mickey and Minnie, and take on bad guys such as the Big Bad Wolf, Battle Pete, Weasel and other Disney nemesis characters in a game to save the day. A nice twist to the game is that you can create combos to send obstacle pieces and counter blocks to your opponent's screen. There are actually four modes of play, which include Classic, Magical, Updown and Speed Challenge. In "Classic" mode you play the old standard version of the tetris game. In "Magical" mode you have to create combos and fill a meter in order to send obstacle pieces toward your opponent's screen. In the "Updown" mode, you move your opponent's playfield toward the ceiling each time you clear two or more horizontal lines. In "Speed Challenge" mode you attempt to set a new high score with the "endless" option of progressively faster stages. Another feature worthy of note is the new ghosting option. With ghosting on, it becomes much easier as you can see where your blocks will land, which helps you in maneuvering them into place. A two player option is available where you can play against the computer or a friend. Fun for the whole family as the puzzle elements can be set to easy for a novice, or young person and on expert for seasoned veterans. As far as game play, the controls in Magical Tetris Challenge are very responsive. The graphics are nothing to write home about, but neither are they poorly done. I thought the music in "the New Tetris" game was good, but I must say that the music in Magical Tetris Challenge (mix of early '80s pop) is much better. With the intricate and challenging puzzles of Tetris combined with the magical appeal of Mickey Mouse, this is a great game for the whole family. So join the Disney characters as they embark on an adventure full of challenge, exhilaration, and anticipation in Magical Tetris Challenge. Completely addictive, deceptively simple, you'll go wild in a kaleidoscopic shower of falling Tetris pieces in this magical version of the world's most popular video game. Pre-owned - Includes Game Only, no manual or instructions are included. Rarity Rating "D" - Magical Tetris Challenge game review by Prince NES Gamer.
