Frantic four player fun

Deep Silver has announced that the Puyo Puyo and Tetris mash up is now available digitally for PS4. Aptly named Puyo Puyo Tetris, the game features a bevvy of game modes that can be played with up to four friends or strangers online. There’s even fun content for the solo players with Adventure and Challenge modes.

Here’s a brief rundown of available game modes to play with your friends:

  • Versus: Players compete head-to-head in either Puyo Puyo or Tetris puzzles.
  • Swap: Players’ abilities are put to the test at they switch back and forth at set intervals between Puyo Puyo and Tetris boards.
  • Fusion: Hybrid mode where players compete with Puyos and Tetriminos together on the same board.
  • Big Bang: Race mode where the first one to finish wins.
  • Party: Players compete on Puyo or Tetris boards, but the puzzles features special items that can help players or harm their opponents.

Once you’re annihilated your friends, you can take your Puyo Puyo Tetris skills online and play with players across the world:

  • Puzzle League: Increase player rating, earn ranks and aspire to new leagues in this mode for competitive enthusiasts.
  • Free Play: A more casual experience where records aren’t kept and players can customize matches with unique settings, and invite their friends to play.
  • Replays: Players can save and upload any online matches to show off to their friends, or search other players’ replays using the tag and filtering system to see how they tackled matches.

And if you prefer challenging yourself to beat your own scores, Puyo Puyo Tetris features a handful of content for solo players:

  • Adventure mode: Features unique ten stages with different characters from the Puyo Puyo and Tetris universes.
  • Battle: Play against up to 3 CPU opponents simultaneously.
  • Endurance: One-on-one gauntlet against never-ending CPU opponents, racking up as many wins as possible.
  • Challenge: Forget about the opponents and put skills to the test with Sprint, Marathon and more, like the quirky Tiny Puyo, which shrinks down Puyos to fit even more on the board.
