Ekstase is like techno-injected tetris

Launched today on Nintendo Switch is Ecstasy, a Tetris-like puzzle game. This allows you to create shapes in a variety of ways.

Described as “a love letter to Berlin and its techno scene,” Ecstasy is a falling block puzzle game featuring bright, flashy visuals and a soundtrack full of techno beats. On the surface, it looks a lot like Tetris, but the gameplay isn’t exactly the same. Instead of clearing the line, the scanline erases blocks of a particular color each time it passes. The official description is as follows:

In ecstasy, the shape of 3-5 blocks falls from the top and breaks apart as soon as it hits something. The scanline changes color on a cycle-by-cycle basis, removing squares formed by blocks of the same color.

Flow Mode: Flow mode is a frictionless “jump-in” game mode in which the game adapts to how it is played. Are you getting better? The game increases the difficulty. Is it getting worse? The game will be easier. By doing so, the game brings out the player’s “flow state”. This is a state of complete immersion in an energized sense of concentration, involvement, and enjoyment.

Beat99: Beat99 is the rhythm mode of Ecstasy. The goal is to rank up the multiplier by dropping shapes on the beats. You will be given 99 “life”, one life will be lost if you drop the shape, and 10 will be lost if you miss the beat! Try to survive as long as possible and get the highest score possible.

Classic Mode: In Classic Mode, set a challenge. Select the number of colors and the speed of the shape.

Time Attack: Can you stack efficiently? Prove it in time attack mode. Break the high score within the set time.

Two rotation modes: Ecstasy can be enjoyed in two different play styles. Play style “A” and play style “B”. A rotates the color into a stationary shape, and B rotates the shape. In this way, you can get two games for one price!

With a variety of color palettes to choose from to help colorblind people, custom button mappings, and the option to turn off distracting backgrounds, Ecstasy seems to be suitable for a wide range of players.

If you’re interested in trying it out, the game will be available today at SwitcheShop for £ 13.49 / $ 14.99. Please categorize carefully in the comments section below and let us know if you would like to check out.
