Available now in an open beta, Tetris Stars employs the familiar matching of tetrominoes to clear as many lines as possible. This version, however, appears to be a much more casual take on the popular puzzle game, as it's controlled entirely via the mouse. (A thousand hardcore Tetris players' hearts shriveled to the size of a raisin as that last sentence was typed.) Anyway, players must complete lines that rest on dirt as quickly as possible to both beat the 60-second clock and dig up buried power-ups and stars.
Tetris Stars applies Bejeweled Blitz-like play hooks to the the classic Tetris formula, like friendly leaderboards and a selection power-ups before each timed session. What's different is that the game sends players on special missions to switch up play styles for rewards.
