About the game

This is a Tetris game added bomb blocks.  The bomb blocks will explode when a line which has them is completed. The game uses the gravity algorithm. A chain-reaction allows the bomb blocks to explode bigger. To destroy all of blocks and clear a level, you need to use a big bomb block. You can make it by making a square with four bomb blocks.

In Japan, the game is known as a kind of Bombliss, and many of Bombliss games were released there. But Tetris Blast is the only Bombliss game released worldwide. The original game of Tetris Blast is, "Tetris 2 + Bombliss", released for SNES.

Trick

The best way of moving sideways is pressing → and ↓, or pressing ← and ↓ alternately.

Stage by stage comments

Stage 1

I used only three pieces to clear the level. I didn’t manipulate luck at the stage because the shape of the next stage was unchangeable.

Stage 2

This level was the hardest level for me to make the movie. The enemy of the stage would eat a bomb blocks quickly, and I had to use a lot of blocks to clear the level.

Stage 3

The enemy of the stage would catch a falling piece and pull it down very quickly. So I had to avoid the enemy when I was operating a piece. I made three big bombs at the stage and put a small bomb on the big bomb I made in the center of the stage to blow up all of big bombs at a time. At the end of the level, I used an extra piece to manipulate luck for the next stage.

Stage 4

A Z-shaped piece made of four bombs helped me make a big bomb in the center of the stage when I blew up a big bomb on the top of the stage and dropped the Z-shaped piece to the center of the stage.

Stage 5

After using a big bomb, I had to stamp the enemy of the stage because it would raise the playfield if I didn’t so.

Stage 6

I had to stamp the enemy of the stage with a square block because it would go and eat the big bomb on the bottom of the stage. I made the enemy raise the playfield by using a L-shaped piece so I could blow up, with a stick made of three blocks, the big bomb without completing a line myself.

Stage 7

I kept off the enemy’s attack by blowing up a big bomb in some timing.

Stage 8

Thanks to two sticks made of three blocks each, I could make a big bomb at the center of the stage. But I needed to make the other big bombs so I could blow up the big bomb I made before.
