Tetris is Becoming a New Daily Game Show with Over $1 Million in Prizes Being Given Away
Put your Tetris skills to the test in a new iteration of the classic game called Primetime, which could see you netting some money.
Are you really, really good at Tetris? Good enough that you think you could best the competition around the world? Well, if that is the case, you now have an opportunity to put those skills to the test and potentially net yourself some cash at the same time.
The Tetris mobile game from N3TWORK has now offered a new mode called Tetris Primetime, which is essentially a new game show centered around the iconic black-based puzzler. Hosted by Millen Baird, Tetris Primetime is said to be “a breakthrough hybrid of live television and tournament play that supercharges the fun and excitement” and will see over $1 million in cash given away to players annually. The new game mode will transpire every night at 7:30pm based on the “anchor city” closest to you. For those in the United States, these two cities include New York City and Los Angeles.
“We’ve kept the gameplay that you remember, and have infused it with competition, communication, community and an incredible global, daily game show with cash prizes,” explained Neil Young, the CEO of N3TWORK. “We think Tetris has the opportunity to be bigger than ever before as fans around the world can now play in both familiar and exciting new ways.”
In addition to Tetris Primetime, another new game mode called Tetris Royale has also now joined the game, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. Much like Tetris 99 on the Nintendo Switch, Tetris Royale sees 100 players battling it out with the last player standing being crowned the winner. The idea might sound wild on paper, but if you haven’t given it a shot yet, I’d highly encourage you to do so. The battle royale format adapted to Tetris is surprisingly far more enjoyable than it has any right to be.
The Tetris mobile app is available to download right now on both iOS and Android devices.
