Quatros Origins out on iOS and Android now

The best retro games manage to combine the feel of the glorious past with the countless gameplay innovations of the glorious present. Quatros Origins falls into the category.

You’d be forgiven for assuming from the screenshots that this is just another block puzzler in the vein of Tetris and a million clones of Tetris, but you’d also be wrong. While Quatros Origins does indeed task you with making lines using clusters of blocks that fall from the sky, it mixes things up considerably by rotating the board by 90 degrees after every move.

This simple tweak literally adds another three dimensions to the already ample one dimension of Tetris, forcing you to consider not just the move you’re making but also the way it will affect the shape of the board on the next face of the board, and the one after that, and the one after that. Think Fez, but with blocks and more dimensions.

It’s tricky to keep track of all four dimensions, but that’s exactly how developer God As A Cucumber wants it: easy to pick up and play, hard to master.

Naturally, there are a few other modern twists beyond the innovative gameplay tweak, including a leaderboard so that you can try and beat your friends and a billion strangers. There’s also an Arcade mode, for more casual sessions.

With its authentic retro sounds and visuals, Quatros Origins is sure to be a hit with retro gaming enthusiasts and puzzle fans, but there’s enough in the way of clever innovation to keep gamers of all tastes scratching their heads and trying to beat their high scores.

You can check out Quatros Origins yourself on Google Play [buy] or the App Store [buy] now.
