EA Announces Tetris Blitz For Apple And Android Devices

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) and The Tetris Company, LLC announced today the development of Tetris® Blitz, an innovative new twist on the world famous puzzle game. This lightning-fast, “Blitz”-style game challenges players to race against the clock and contains fresh new features and stunning visuals for the ultimate Tetris experience. Available for both Apple ® and Android™ smartphones and tablets, Tetris Blitz is EA’s first-ever freemium Tetris game.

Tetris Blitz introduces all new strategies to the iconic Tetris gameplay in a two-minute sprint to clear lines and rack up as many points as possible before time runs out. Fans will get blown away by stunning cascades by clearing multiple lines back-to-back, to trigger the elusive Frenzy Mode for a huge score multiplier. Players can also boost their score by choosing from the game’s collection of explosive power-ups---- and with new power-ups released every week, the combinations are endless. Blitz also innovates on the fan favorite One-Touch controls with the addition of the new “Drag and Place” option, while also including the traditional ”Swipe” option for Tetris players who prefer the classic controls.

Tetris Blitz wraps all of the best elements of the iconic Tetris game inside a bite-sized, frenzied experience that is perfect for smartphones and tablets,” said Nick Earl, Senior Vice President and General Manager for EA’s All Play label. “The crisp graphics, innovative new controls and social leaderboards are bound to make Tetris Blitz a captivating gaming experience for longtime Tetris fans and newcomers alike.”

Additionally, Tetris Blitz will feature Facebook® Connect integration, which will let players compete with friends in a weekly competition, share high scores and brag as they fly past friends on the leaderboards.

Tetris Blitz is a re-imagined extension of the original Tetris game for smartphone and tablet gamers,” added Henk Rogers, Managing Director of The Tetris Company. “New additions like the two-minute countdown timer and Facebook Connect are welcome updates to the Tetris legacy and will provide a fast-paced and fun on-the-go experience for today’s Tetris gamers.”

Tetris Blitz will be available later this spring on the Apple App Store SM, Google Play and Amazon App Store.
