About This Game

Experience the Best of Tetris

In this fast-paced game of skills, you can take on the puzzle game solo, battle a friend, partner up with friends, or make battle teams. Up to four players can get in on the action.

  • Marathon – Get to level 15 and rack up as many points as you can.
  • Endless – Go as high as level 30 and keep clearing lines as long as possible.
  • Ultra – Get your highest score before time runs out in this three-minute challenge.
  • Sprint – Clear 40 lines as quickly as you can.
  • Battle – Go head-to-head to knock out your opponents.
  • Power-Up Battle – Be the last person playing after using crazy power-ups! Go on the offensive with Carousel and make your opponent’s Well shift to the left after each move, or trigger Let it Rain and dump garbage down on top of them. Buzz Saw helps you out by clearing away a number of your lines – especially useful when you’re in a spot of trouble.
  • Haunted – Complete Marathon mode while your Tetriminos disappear.
  • Landslide – Try to clear lines while random Minos are dumped on your screen every 10 turns.
  • Time's Up – Starting with a 30 second game, clear lines and perform special moves like T-Spins and combos to add time to your game.

Stay Connected With Friends

Social Feeds keep you up to date with in-game events and allows you to track your friends’ scores. Tetris Ultimate captures and saves your play style, allowing you to always be able to play with or against your friends, even when they are offline. If your scores get beat, view your friends’ strategies via their in-game replays, then challenge and beat them!

Celebrate Wins and Compete

Leaderboards make it easy to post your scores and see how you measure up against your friends. Challenge yourself and stack your skills and scores against other great players around the globe. An official Tetris Rank in the shape of Tetriminos has been implemented to classify and identify the top players. Play by Championship Rules for an even greater feat to see where you place among the most elite players. Are you one of the best in the world?

I have a very good computer with dedicated graphics and last generation processing, and this game is SLOW!
I actually thought there was something wrong with my computer; how in the world could tetris play slow? Now thanks to these reviews I know the problem is this stupid version of the game. The WEB BROWSER version is much faster and responsive.

I had to withdrawal my review of Tetris Ultimate to write an updated review on my current thoughts of Tetris Ultimate. As of now, I don't recommend Tetris Ultimate, at all. Not because of other negative reviews say, like the game freezes, you need UPlay, its DRM, will not launch, etc. My reasons for not recommending this game are completely different from what others have been saying about this game.

The simple fact that there are better alternatives in Tetris, like Tetris Friends which is free with cheap microtransactions for example. You can spend the $15 that this game costs and buy yourself a lot of neat stuff through Tetris friends. Like Tetrimino styles, ghost styles, backrounds, win backrounds, sound effects, etc. Also has many game modes, an active community of people who play Tetris Friends, leader boards, etc. More worth it if you are a Tetris Fan.

Another free great alternative that is 100% free is Tetris Online Poland, or TOJ for short. Which you can grab for free by just googling it. It has an online community just like Tetris Friends. Except everything is basically free and the microtransactions have been yanked out. Its an online Tetris viewer that was once Japanese and now translated into English. Which blows away Tetris Ultimate by an Ultimate Landslide.

Issues with this game? Allow me to break this all down for you. My dear consumer.

1) No one plays this online. At all.
2) You absolutely need UPlay to play this game. Because Ubisoft.
3) The game plays incredibly stiff. Moving your Tetrimino's left to right feels bleh, making it a huge problem in higher speed levels.
4) There is absolutely nothing new nor spectacular to warrant this the Ultimate Tetris.
5) Backrounds plays with your eyes. It has all this blue haze in the backround that trips your eyes out. Do not play if you are drunk or high. If your eyes are sensitive to constant motion, you may get sick.
6) The music is an uninspired remix of the original Tetris theme. Really shallow and doesn't put you in that, "Tetris" mood.
7) You need a high speed cable connection to be able to even touch this game. (Not a problem for me, however.)
8) Does indeed crash often with no updates from Ubisoft. Figures.

In conclusion my dear friends. Where should your hard earned $15 go? Go to Tetris Friends website, make an account, buy some diamonds, spend it on some cool stuff, and you have yourself a versatile active community of Tetris friends with a staff that actually cares for its fans. It is also completely free. Or download Tetris Online Poland (TOJ) which is completely free for everything.

Thank you for reading. Avoid purchasing this game as its the Tetris you are sure you haven't been waiting for. Or want.

Well, after a couple of weeks it just did not want to launch. Nothing helped. Deleting Cache, Verifiing Cache, Uninstalling, Re-installing. Nothing helped. It just says Tetris is running, but it is not, and I had to exit Steam via Taskmanager. Do not buy.

It is Tetris! What could possibly go wrong?

- I need uPlay running for a Tetris game coded in Unity
- Terrible performance
- Nobody plays online
- No controller support for the menu
- changing settings is a chore.
- Boring modes
- This game is the reason the best Tetris game ever is no longer sold on 3DS.

This is really disappointing. I am a HUGE tetris fan. I bought this version of tetris for Xbox One and PS4. But it crashes every time I play. I read other reviews and quite a few make the same complaints. I ultimately requested a refund.

Bought the 3DS version, but I didn't like playing with a DPad.
Had a PS4 arcadestick lying around, so I bought the PS4 version, but I didn't like playing with bugs and a developer that is not willing to patch these.
Bought the Steam version, but I don't like it, because:

- unskipable logos/intros
- laggy logos/intros
- laggy menu
- half-♥♥♥ support for my arcadesticks (which work fine with everything else), left/right is up/down, buttons don't work *
- no option to set custom controls *
- adware popping up random when exiting the game

And probably more, but I don't wanna spend more time with this than I already did. At least not until the last 3 points have been fixed.

If you wanna play a good version of Tetris, try Tetris DS or stick with the 3DS version of T.U.

* semi-fixable with Joy2Key or XPadder, but will add inputlag, rendering the game even more unplayable

This is such a shame.... Such a shame that in this day and age, we can't get a working, updated version of Tetris. After the fiasco of the next gen console releases and total lack of support for fixing them for just under a year now, I don't know why I'm surprised.

No, I cannot recommend this to anyone as it stands now. The game keep crashing, you can't remap your controls, very clunky user interface. I'd like to give an opionion about actual gameplay, but I can't due to the constant crashes. From what I can tell, seems to be a direct port of the console versions, slow play and slow line clear delay.

I'm going to give it some time to see if Ubi does anything about these issues, but I'm holding no hope going by their previous track record for the console games.

Very happy that I can get a refund through Steam for this as it's the ONLY reason I decided to purchase and try it. Was hoping to finally get a decent game with decent multiplayer, but I guess I'll have to just keep on waiting.

The game does NOT allow you to remap keys in the options menu.
I do not recommend this game.

(edit) A patch has been released that tackles this problem

The game also suffers from crashes..
(edit) The game still suffered from crashes, tested on two Win 10 systems. But I've actually been able to play without crashes on both systems after
- Running steam and Uplay as administrator and verifying the integrity of the game cache
- On 1 system, I also had to run the game on Win 7 compatibility mode

(edit) More time needs to be spend to actually review the gameplay, but the game is playable. First impression:
There are too many small annoyances (menu, audio, visual) that has nothing to do with gameplay/game modes itself. So overall, it leaves a bad taste, even though the gameplay itself might be decent. For now, overall, I'd still not recommend it ( it's not completely rubbish, just mediocre and definitely not "Ultimate"), but I think that one could enjoy it casually on a rainy day.

It should also be noticed that a quad core recommendation is insane for a tetris game with a 'casual' tag. Clearly it's a lazy console port to pc.
