Console: Super Nintendo
Don’t be fooled by the Tetris name, that was just for branding. This is a brand new puzzle game where you must match colored blocks in groups of three or more as they slowly rise from the bottom of the screen. While the single player mode is pretty great and includes a bunch of characters from Yoshi’s Island, the real highlight is the two-player mode. Tetris Attack is one of the best competitive puzzlers around.
Nintendo hasn’t tried to co-opt the Tetris name again for the series, but has released a couple of follow-ups: Planet Puzzle League for the DS and the equally beloved Pokemon Puzzle League for the Nintendo 64.
