    On PS4, Tetris VR is a total mind melter..it's flippin awesome.
    There's a level with flaming people praying around the Tetris board... they chant and the game speed changes, but the chanting speed isn't always linked to the game speed directly... and its melts my noodle..
    Moreover, the genius of having to look through floating objects to see the game, and the genious use of the changing back ground to alter the mood makes it a tremendous experience.

    It's damnably hard in places too and it's a sharer... alternate with a mate of your kid and share the skills.

    It's a 9/10 from me.

    £33 for Tetris?

    I don't care how pretty it is, that's taking the biscuit.

    Where do you get the PC version ? I can't see it on steam or on the oculus store.

    £33 for a game which, at it's core, has 1001 open source variants online.

    So, £33 for pretty lights and music.

    I'd rather be a cynic than a muppet.

    I mean... isn't that what you're paying for when you buy Call of Warfare 27, or Pro EFA 2029? The same as Call of Warfare 26 or Pro EFA 2028, which you could buy for a fiver at Stolen Goods Converters, only a bit prettier?

    Yes, indeed. I would't pay the asking price for Pro Kissball, or Call of Map Pack either.

    Stolen Goods Converters, heh. I did chuckle.

    Bah, I already own Doom, why would I need to buy any of those 25 years of Doom clones?!

    As opposed to "Bah, I already own Tetris. Why would I need to buy Tetris?" :thumb:

    Fave version is still the magic Disney one on N64. This is OK. Not really into trance or enya but if you are this would be for you.

    I mean it is still Tetris and you do have to concentrate which makes seeing the pretty stuff harder. I barely even noticed it at first and the songs only started getting good when I was done the level.
