Genre: Puzzle
Author(s): Totta
Medium: ROM 48KB
Hardware requirements: MSX1

The game Tetpuz takes some well-known-block shapes for you to place them on a checkerboard in an orderly fashion.

Originally created in 1999 for the interwebs, and later for mobile phones, the author finally made an MSX version of his game called Tetpuz. In fact, it’s Totta’s game publishing debut on MSX, written for the classic MSX1 system.

The basic idea behind Tetpuz is simple. You need to create complete rows or columns by placing the tiles onto the board. Every time a row or column is complete it will be removed and points are awarded. Seems simple, until you actually try it. You’ll be pulling hairs out in no-time.

You control the game using either the keyboard (arrow keys and space bar) or a joystick connected to any port. You can switch between them at any time, even during playing. The accompanied manual will fill you in on the details.
