Recently we reviewed a couple 3D Tetris titles with Tetra3D leading the charge for a fun revival of this classic twist on an old-school arcade puzzle game. Given these releases it would be unfair to forget to review Fragmental 3D by Aesthetic Interactive, especially when this title made its debut earlier, making the comparison between these games quite interesting to say the least.
Fragmental 3D differs in its approach by using default controls that are quite unique, requiring players to use large indicators surrounding each block to position them in place. A toggle also allows you to switch between moving the block along its sides and rotating it in to a new position. Scoring only requires players to make a single row or column match, but multiple matches are rewarded with additional points.
The default block-set is quite hard to wrap your head around, but provides a far better challenge over the classic tetra-blocks that make the game easy enough to be considered more of a casual mode. The 3D graphics are neat and colorful, with beautiful background designs and a clean interface that's easy to use, however it would be nice to see anti-aliasing used to sharpen up the visuals for those using a 3GS or higher.
Fragmental 3D is a beautiful resurrection of the 3D Tetris gameplay and definitely worth checking out whether you're a casual or hardcore puzzle fan.

This update also resolves a bad issue for iPhone 5 users, which occurred after the most recent update. Thanks to Oscar for reporting this issue right away!
