Tetris Beat launches on Apple Arcade with exclusive songs by trending artists
The world famous Tetris® puzzle game is blocking to a new beat with Tetris® Beat, available now exclusively on Apple Arcade. Developed and published by N3TWORK, Tetris Beat fuses the hit gameplay of Tetris with innovative rhythm mechanics and features exclusive music from a diverse and eclectic lineup of trending artists including Alison Wonderland, GARZA (of Thievery Corporation), Hannah Diamond, Octo Octa, Dauwd, CINTHIE and many more.
“We collaborated individually with each artist on everything from their song structure to the colors and visual themes in order to meld their personality with the Tetris Beat gameplay. This level of partnership is unprecedented and we couldn’t be more delighted to share it with the Apple Arcade audience,” said Lawrence Clark, Executive Producer of Tetris Beat.
The game features 18 game-exclusive songs spanning Dance, Hip Hop and Pop, with new songs from a variety of genres added every month.
“When picking the artists for Tetris Beat, we wanted to build as diverse a lineup as possible, showcasing not just a variety of different musical genres, but under-represented genders and ethnicities as well,” said Kathee Chimowitz, Strategic Partnerships at N3TWORK.
In Tetris® Beat, players can choose from one of three modes that each offer a unique variation on the core Tetris gameplay experience. In Drop mode, a fusion of Tetris and rhythm gameplay, players rotate and drop Tetriminos to the beat to build massive combos and score big. Tap mode is more casual and rhythm focused, but still has an element of Tetris strategy. Marathon mode is the Tetris you know and love and allows players to customize their own soundtrack. With these three modes, Tetris Beat offers something fun for all players regardless of their experience with Tetris or rhythm games.
“Tetris has always been an inclusive game, no matter what background, language, gender or age, it’s loved by everyone. In fact, one of our slogans at Tetris is ‘We All Play Together,’” said Maya Rogers, CEO of Tetris. “The seven Tetriminos represent all the colors of the rainbow, and we love how the music in Tetris Beat was curated with that in mind.”
