Puzzle Domino is basically Tetris with dominoes. The games are similar enough
that you can get a pretty good idea of whether or not you'll enjoy Puzzle Domino based on your feelings for Tetris, or perhaps a little more accurately, its SEGA knockoff Columns. Dominoes fall from the top of the screen and begin to
stack up across the bottom, and if the stack reaches the top of the screen the
game is over. Since each domino is the same shape, you can't eliminate them by
forming complete rows at in Tetris. Instead the object it to match the number of
dots on three or more adjacent domino halves. To accomplish this, you can use
your finger to shift a domino left and right as it falls, and to rotate it as
well. This works pretty well, although at first I had to get used to the
sensitivity of the controls that were all too eager to send the domino on a high
speed trip to the bottom of the screen before I had it lined up correctly.
Puzzle Domino is more difficult than Tetris in that piece placement is even
more critical. In Tetris you could need one or two squares to complete a line,
and those squares could be filled be several of the types of pieces in the game.
In Puzzle Domino, if you need a five spot piece, then only a five spot piece
will do. The difficulty is taken up another notch by the fact that at a certain
point the dominoes will change color, and different colored dominoes never match.
Luckily the game will occasionally drop a bomb your way to blow-up a block of
dominoes or the game would be even more challenging. Puzzle Domino can be fun
and the play hectic, but be sure that you're someone who enjoys a challenging
game and are not easily frustrated before you consider downloading this one.
