SAN FRANCISCO – JANUARY 20, 2016 – The Tetris Company and GSN Games, a leading provider of social casino games and cash tournaments, today announced the launch of Tetris® Burst, the latest iteration of one of the most addictive and recognizable video games of all time. Tetris Burst is the first official Tetris game that allows players to enter skill-based Tetris tournaments against other WorldWinner players for a chance to win real cash prizes. Tetris Burst is available to play now on PC and Mac at www.worldwinner.com/tetrisburst.
Tetris Burst brings a fresh, fun experience to the iconic puzzle game—it’s the Tetris game that players know and love, but with a flavorful twist. Players are whisked away to a lush rainforest for challenging Tetris gameplay, with the goal of clearing lines from the Matrix. Line Clears fill the Juice Meter to unlock three new power-ups: Mino Shower, Double Up, and Juice Wave.
Maya Rogers, President and CEO of Blue Planet Software, sole agent for The Tetris Company, comments, “We are continuously working to bring new Tetris experiences to fans. The introduction of Tetris Burst, which gives players the opportunity to put their line-clearing skills to the test for a chance to win cash prizes, is an exciting addition to our growing lineup of Tetris-branded games.”
“As Tetris is one of the world’s most popular games with hundreds of millions of fans, I know that both new and current players alike will be thrilled to see how they stack up against other Tetris Burst players in cash tournaments,” said Greg Canessa, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Skill Games at GSN Games. “It is an honor to be a part of the Tetris brand’s legacy and to continue the tradition of delivering new ways to play the iconic, beloved game.”
