A mix between Tetris and Collapse!, where you switch between modes to reach the goal as fast as you can!
Usually, you want to avoid filling up the board, but here, it can become very rewarding! Set up insane combos and take advantage of both phases to earn as many points as possible!
In TetraClicker, the game switches between two phases: Tetris mode, and Collapse! mode; both named after the gameplay of their eponym games. In Tetris Mode, you gain points by clearing lines; the more you clear at once, the more extra points you get. A single line is worth 1000 points, but if you clear four lines at once, you get a whopping 16,000 points! However, the longer you stay in this mode, the faster the pieces fall. If a piece reaches the red zone, then the game switches to Collapse! Mode. In this mode, you have to click on groups of colour to get points. The bigger the groups, the more extra points you get, so plan ahead during the Tetris phase!
- Left/Right : Move the piece around.
- Up: Rotate the piece.
- Down: Drop the piece.
- Mouse: Click.
A single line is worth 1,000 points, but clearing several lines at once rewards you with a quadratic multiplier! That is to say:
- 2 lines = 4,000 pts
- 3 lines = 8,000 pts
- 4 lines = 16,000 pts !!!
In this phase, each block, by itself, is worth a measly 2 points. However, they are not added together when clicked on as a group; instead, they are added together as a power of 2, up to a maximum of 10.
- 2 blocks = 4 pts
- 3 blocks = 8 pts
- 10 blocks = 1,024 pts This doesn't mean that it's usueless to make groups bigger than 10, however! Any extra block above 10 serves as a multiplier! So:
- 11 blocks = 2,048 pts
- 12 blocks = 4,096 pts
- 20 blocks = 20,048
In theory, since the board is 10x18, this means a theoretical maximum of 155,648 points in one single click!
