Make Squares offers a clever twist on classic Tetris, available on iOS and Android

You know how to play Tetris: tetromino pieces falling from above, fitting them together to make rows, and so on. Make Squares takes those familiar pieces and delivers a unique variant that turns your understanding of the pieces and their relationship on its head.

As you've probably guessed from the title, Make Squares tasks you with combining pieces into squares, and manipulating your growing central structure to catch falling tetrominoes. Most importantly, instead of rotating pieces, you rotate the larger structure, forcing you to consider orientation and how future pieces will dovetail with different sides. This change turns the familiar feeling of Tetris into a new spatial challenge, especially as matches erase that square from the shape and cause outer pieces to fall inward. Special abilities like bombs to explode pieces and swapping future pieces for new ones offer additional strategies for those elusive high scores.

Make Squares is free to download on the App Store and Google Play; a $2.99 in-app purchase removes ads.
