Uno Free Fall Review
Uno Free Fall is more akin to Tetris than it is to Uno. Sure, you’ve got your colored and numbered cards and the special cards such as Reverse that will be familiar to anyone who’s played Uno before, but those cards fall from the top of the screen and begin to pile up at the bottom unless you eliminate them by making matches. Sounds a lot like Tetris, right? Well it is, but there are a few differences. The first is that to eliminate the cards from the screen you must match three or more of them according to the rules of Uno. So three red cards would make a match as well as would three fives of different colors. The cards do not need to be all aligned in a row or column; you can create long chains of cards that meander through your stack as long as each of the cards is adjacent to at least one of the others. This makes for some good-sized elimination moves, and for some long cascades of combos as cards are eliminated and the remaining cards fall to fill in the gaps. This may make it seem like the game is pretty easy, but while this may be the case on the initial levels things will soon move quickly enough to provide you with plenty of challenge.
The game comes with a few variations on the basic gameplay, including timed and puzzle modes that challenge you to clear the screen using the predetermined sequence of falling cards. And no, you do not need to shout “uno” when there’s only one card left. These other modes provide for a little variety, but the game’s main mode is where the heart of the gameplay lies.
It’s pretty safe to say that your enjoyment of Uno Free Fall will depend more on how much you like Tetris than how much you like Uno. If you’re a DS owner, opt for the DS version of the game as it provides several games packed onto a single cart.
In The End, This Game Hath Been Rated: 70%. Uno Free Fall is Tetris for the Uno crowd.
