By - | Views: 31,621

Enjoy playing games like Puzzle League or Tetris Attack? Check out BoohaBlox Arcade, a recent free release from developer Fully Bugged.

The developer said this version of the game is fully free, the entire package with an arcade mode that you can play for many hours across three game modes of Marathon, Timed and Endless. Each also allows you to tweak features like the number of columns, starting speed, scroll type and there's a colour blind mode too. Another premium version of the game with more content may be coming as well if you liked this.

I played a lot of Tetris Attack for the SNES back in the 1990s. This is right up my alley!

We hoped you had a chance to try it and that you liked it. :)
On our side, We should propose a new very small update soon with minor rare bugs and small improvements.

It plays really well, overall! I do have a small gripe with the menu accept being different from the swap button, but other than that, it's a solid Tetris Attack clone on a mechanical level.

Are there plans to add more music/stages?

Yes and No
No - because This version is pretty much done, polished and working well.
but Yes - Because it's actually our goal to do a more complete and deeper version with even more content (game mode, bonus, story, GFX, musics...), but it will not be the "Arcade" version then, and it's more for in few months with everything to start to create yet.

Okay, so there will be a more Tetris Attack type experience, but even better? Okay!

Well, "better", not sure, but we'll try for sure! :).
More complete and more ambitious, that's the dream for now!
But it required more time and less chance of success.
We'll see :)

Happy New Year everyone!

One of our last message about **Boohablox - Arcade** here, (for we are pretty much done with this arcade version now).
https://fully-bugged.itch.io/boohablox/devlog/658792/update-version-110

We release this 1.1.0 version, with mostly a new mode we called PRO. This mode is more rewarding in terms of points, but harder for most common players like me. It allows the normal mode (by default) to be more permissive and fun too.

Thx again for this first article, allowing many Linux players to try the game. Let's hope many more players will play (and enjoy) it in the future ;).

Cheers !
