TETRIS® MIND BENDER is designed to both challenge and entertain Tetris fans in unexpected ways. TETRIS MIND BENDER blends the much-loved TETRIS gameplay with new mind-bending twists. Clearing a line with a flashing Mino (i.e., a single block) will activate a temporary random MIND BENDER item that could either be beneficial or mischievous.


The goal of TETRIS MIND BENDER is to score as many points as possible by clearing horizontal lines of Blocks. The player must rotate, move, and drop the falling Tetriminos inside the Matrix (playing field). Lines are cleared when they are filled with Blocks and have no empty spaces. If a flashing Mino is cleared at the same time, you’ll activate a MIND BENDER item and receive a score bonus. The more MIND BENDER items you activate consecutively, the bigger the bonus; however, if you’re unable to activate a MIND BENDER item before the Mino stops flashing, your bonus potential will be reduced.

As lines are cleared, the level increases and Tetriminos fall faster, making the game progressively more challenging. If the Blocks land above the top of the playing field, the game is over.
